Can Celeste figure it all out time, before the danger find her?
This is the first book from this author that I have read. I found that to be very enjoyable read and look forward to more like it from this author. This book was a very complex, but cozy mystery. Written with a strong female character lead, Celeste is very confident in her abilities as a psychic and it shows in her character’s personality. I love how she handles the non-believers. Especially the man who said using her gift to make money was basically a sin, yet she pointed out that he used his gift of a green thumb to make money. How was that any different. She handles each person with a calmness that is extroidnary. She is an amazing woman. All the characters in this book were interesting and well-developed. Emma will be a rising star if the books continue. As Celeste has admitted that she is very powerful and is bound for great things.
Overall the book was mysterious and intriguing. Written at a very steady pace, the book is never rushed and was well thought out. The book contained useful information in regards to the understanding of a psychics world. Providing a realistic view of the main character and plot of the book.￼ there were several twists and turns to the story that will keep you guessing until the very end. The ending of the book it’s left open for another addition. Let’s hope that we get to see more from Celeste and the gang.
