And Bessilyn Margaret Hind is next in line.

In 1906, suffragist and local women’s rights leader, Bessie Hind, committed suicide at her thirty-fifth birthday party after her fiancé broke up with her.

She didn’t take her own life, and she wants Carly to find out who her real killer is (and get retractions on the books, pronto).

Through channeling, Carly is brought straight to that night to relive the party moment by moment as it happened, take down clues, and figure it all out. A mystery Carly gets so caught up in, she risks losing her own place in the timeline, and herself.  (Amazon)
