Lee Barrett has agreed to attend a storage auction with Aunt Ibby - even though she suspects the forgotten rooms will yield more junk than treasure. Her skepticism vanishes once the two win a bid on an overlooked locker and uncover a trove of beautiful curiosities, including a stunning wooden carousel horse with gentle eyes and fading paint. But just before Lee leaves the fairground relic at a local repair shop, the sight of a silver samovar awakens her psychic abilities and conjures visions of murder. Lee prays the intrusive ESP episode was just a glimpse into the past - until her policeman boyfriend reports a dead man outside the repair shop. Apparently, the unknown victim had been hot on Lee's trail since the auction. And with the horse found dismantled, it looks like he was up to no good. What's the story behind the antique equine, and could a strange bubblegum-chewing woman with fiery hair have something to do with the crime? Guided by her gift and O'Ryan, her wise tabby cat, Lee's set on catching the murderer...before she's sent on the darkest ride of her life.

"Highly original and great fun. A triumph of imagination with twists and turns to delight readers." (Carolyn Hart, New York Times best-selling author)
I didn't enjoy this one as much as I enjoyed the previous books in this series. Not because of the writing, but, because the Czar Nicholas story has been done too many times and seemed a bit far fetched. I just couldn't get into it. I also was a bit frustrated with Lee. She needs to accept that she has a gift and make peace with it, or figure out a way to ignore it. Either way, she needs to stop complaining. I hope there is more character development in the next story. I still have hope in this series. C.S.E. Cooney did a great job with the narration. I had no problem with her performance.
Totally addicted! It's possible I might need Audible rehab.
I'm not able to focus on the story because the narration is so flat. Tried speeding it up and that didn't help either. Disappointing.
I have really liked this series, until this book. I was so bored I had to finally just give up. I wasted money on this one. I suggest skipping it. Disappointing in an otherwise good series.
This was another great addition to the series. Both the author and narrator were spot on. I highly recommend this book as well as the entire series.
