A brooding, atmospheric short tale of unsolved mystery and tragic love....
When we last saw Dori Orihuela in her first thrilling paranormal mystery, Lost in the Light, she received a shocking message slipped to by her high school flame, Gavin Salazar.
In this short novella, Girl in the Mist, we pick up where we left these two lovers as Gavin sweeps Dori off to a romantic weekend in Carmel, California. Their charming cottage, hidden in the cypress trees, holds a dark secret. A young woman appears in the mist, not knowing her name or how long she's been dead. When Dori tries to find out what happened to this broken young spirit, everyone she encounters refuse to speak of what happened.
Dori also has a few secrets of her own that she's hoping never to tell Gavin ... even if holding onto them could destroy the best thing that's ever happened to her.
A modern gothic mystery woven with thrills, ghosts, and sexy romance, Girl in the Mist will delight fans of Susanna Kearsley, Simone St. James, Kate Morton, and Victoria Holt.

I really enjoyed this book. I was excited to get a copy of this after reading the first book in the series, and though I was hoping for a full-length book, this novella did not disappoint. It was interesting watching the relationship progress between Dori and Gavin, and I loved the ghost aspect of the story - I thought it was really well thought out and shocking! I can't wait until the next book in the series. And a note about the narration: Mary Castillo is not only a talented writer; she is an excellent narrator as well.
