Why this book?:

It was recommended by a friend.


I didn't know what to expect of this, other than J. Kaye mentioning the author as one she'd recently found.

I liked that Mary O'Reilly came with such an honorable background before the paranormal investigative part became part of her life.  I liked that she wasn't too pushy about what she did.  Obviously she wanted people to believe her, but I didn't feel any, as the reader, "you must believe or you are an ignorant fool."  Her friends in her newfound hometown were charming.  I liked the police chief (But talk about baggage!  We'll see how that goes.)

The mystery isn't complex, or at least not from the reader's standpoint.  I guessed the murdered once he had time on the page.  But that's not a problem for me as long as Mary isn't stupid and missing in-your-face clues about it.

Anyway, Mary's been hired to solve a cold case for a Senator's wife, and in the process she uncovers a series of old child abductions.  Talk about sickening.  But the book isn't without its amusing parts.  So I enjoyed it.

I got book two, Good Tidings, free through Amazon.  And I have the 3rd book, Never Forgotten, coming through as another InterLibrary Loan.  So I should be moving on with the series soon.
