I’m so excited to be a stop on the blog tour for author Lena Gregory and her new book, Clairvoyant and Present Danger, book #3 in her Bay Island Psychic Mystery series. I predict this series is going to have a long life.

A haunting vision reveals a ghostly grave in the latest Bay Island Psychic Mystery from the author of Occult and Battery.
Whoever said that dead men tell no tales has never met Cass Donnovan…
Cass has always relied on her abilities to guide her, but after communications with a ghost land her in the middle of a murder investigation, she has to wonder if her gifts are really more a curse.
Cass knows she is meant to help track down the killer–much to the chagrin of local law enforcement–when the apparition leads her to a dead body on the beach near her psychic shop, Mystical Musings. But the police are not the only ones who wish Cass would stick to reading palms. Someone is trying to scare her off, and it will take all her powers of premonition to catch the killer before Cass herself becomes the next victim… (Goodreads)
The characters are well developed, well rounded and three dimensional. I really enjoyed spending time with Cass, Bee and Stephanie, three friends that are very close. I really liked how they were willing to have each others backs. They may complain about helping each other (especially Bee) but in the end they were always there. I felt like I had known the three for a long time, instead of just meeting them The secondary characters added a lot to the book, in my opinion.
The author is very talented in creating a small town setting and she did a great job of creating Bay Island. There was all of the nosiness you would expect in a small town and also the camaraderie that goes along with it. She is also very talented in her descriptive writing and through much of the book I felt like I was walking along the boardwalk, seeing all of the stores and visiting the shops.
The writing style flows smoothly and the book is a quick easy read. The book moves along at a nice pace and I thought the mystery was well plotted. There were enough suspects to consider and enough clues to sift through and I really did not figure it out until it was revealed at the end.
I would highly recommend this book to anyone who enjoys a well crafted cozy mystery. And the paranormal aspect was just icing on the cake for me, since those are some of my favorite cozies to read.
Although this is the third book in the series, I was not lost in any way. I felt like the characters were already old friends and I really enjoyed spending time with them. I am definitely going to read the first two books in this series.
I received a free copy of this book from NetGalley in exchange for a honest review. I would like to thank NetGalley and Berkley Publishing Group for the opportunity to read and review this great book.

Lena lives in a small town on the south shore of eastern Long Island with her husband and three children.
When she was growing up, she spent many lazy afternoons on the beach, in the yard, anywhere she could find to curl up with a good book. She loves reading as much now as she did then, but she now enjoys the added pleasure of creating her own stories.
