Publisher's Summary

After losing her job as a TV psychic, Lee Barrett has decided to volunteer her talents as an instructor at the Tabitha Trumbull Academy of the Arts - known as "The Tabby" - in her hometown of Salem, Massachusetts. But when the school's handyman turns up dead under seemingly inexplicable circumstances on Christmas night, Lee's clairvoyant capabilities begin bubbling to the surface once again.

The Tabby is housed in the long-vacant Trumbull's Department Store. As Lee and her intrepid students begin work on a documentary charting the store's history, they unravel a century of family secrets, deathbed whispers, and a mysterious labyrinth of tunnels hidden right below the streets of Salem. Even the witches in town are spooked, and when Lee begins seeing visions in the large black patent leather pump in her classroom, she's certain that something evil is afoot. But ghosts in the store's attic are the least of her worries with a killer on the loose....

Original story, flat reader, again

The story is unusual, and works well with the local town of Salem, MA, which is described nicely throughout the book. However, the characters speak in stiff, almost formal sentences, and I found myself wondering if people actually express themselves this way. This was a problem I felt
throughout the first Carol J. Perry book, as well. What exaggerated this
issue was the expressionless reader, who also has a lisp....Not an enjoyable listen.

GREAT STORY

YOU WILL ENJOY THIS WRITER. GET BOTH OF HER BOOKS, AND YOU WILL BE ENTERTAINED. I WANT HER TO WRITE FASTER, ALTHOUGH I KNOW IT TAKES TIME.

Not As Good As The First

This one wasn't as good as the first. I'm not sure why, the core characters are there, and Lee continues to learn about her abilities. However, it seemed to lack something. It was still entertaining so I'm giving it 4 stars.

Another delightful episode.

A fun romp through tunnels, bomb shelters and a new school in Salem. Not just a school for the arts, it's former life was as a department store... with an apartment in the top floor where a crazy woman had once been kept, and now features a resident ghost.
