by Nat Burns
On the list of things that Grey Graham thought she’d never do is hire a psychic. Her new bookstore on South Padre Island, however, appears to be haunted. Unable to explain why, she’s convinced that the restless ghost is her late partner, Mary. The locals tell her that psychic Angie June is the real deal, though, and she seeks out the young woman for help.
Angie is desperate to save her local youth program, and a paying client is essential. There is definitely something off about the bookstore too, and she can sense that the spirit won’t be easy to vanquish.
As the days go by she also finds that the ghost isn’t the only reason she’s drawn to the bookstore, but Grey is far more interested in the dead than the living.
Nat Burns brings the south Texas world alive as two women confront a haunting secret and their feelings for each other.
