Now it's up to Sarah - and her detective sergeant friend - to deliver her mom from scandal and ferret out the murderer.

Critic reviews

"Strong characters, clever plotting, and the hint of the supernatural that comes with a story centered around spiritualism make this page-turner a must for both fans and readers new to the series." ( Booklist)

Good Series

I started to like this series by the end of the first book—but it took the plot twists to convince me to keep listening because I wasn’t sure I liked how the narrator made every character sound mean spirited. But the storyline carried me through and when Suzanne Torren gave the women a more feminine voice while keeping them thoroughly engaged, very intelligent, and supremely cunning, I became hooked! I will certainly be sad when the series ends. This segment wasn’t quite as thrilling as its predecessors but it was well done and, again, I was sad when it ended!
