October brings a message from Beyond The Grave…

Halloween is fast approaching in the quiet Los Angeles County city of Vista Beach, home of computer programmer and tole-painting enthusiast Rory Anderson. While her painting chapter prepares to open its annual boutique house, Rory receives an unexpected email from Beyond The Grave, a company that automatically sends out messages when someone dies.

“I think I have a stalker,” the message reads. “If you’re reading this I’m either missing or dead. My life may depend on what you do. Please find out what happened to me.”

Haunted by her friend’s disappearance and possible death, Rory begins her search with the help of best friend and fellow painter, Liz Dexter. Can they discover who has designs on the missing woman and uncover the truth before one of them becomes the stalker’s next victim?






I really liked the premise of the book.  Within the first couple of paragraphs, the words “I think I have a stalker” pulled me right into the story and pulled me right along throughout the entire book.  That was a great opening.

The characters are well rounded and well developed. Rory is like a dog with a bone, she cannot let the disappearance or death of her friend go.  She was the right person to send the message to. I like the relationship between her and Liz, you can tell that they are best friends. And Martin is very understanding and seems like a great guy.

The writing style flows smoothly and the book is an easy read.  I thought the mystery was well plotted and carried on well throughout the entire book.  There were enough twists and turns to make it interesting and just when you think it is over, think again.

I would recommend this book to anyone who enjoys a good cozy mystery.  I have not read any of the other books in this series, but I plan on changing that.

I voluntarily reviewed an ARC of this book provided by the publisher, Henery Publishing, and  Edelweiss +, which I greatly appreciate.

Fast forward to college where she continued reading while studying Computer Science. After a rewarding career in the computer industry, Sybil decided to try her hand at writing mysteries. Her short fiction has appeared in Mysterical-E and Spinetingler Magazine, among others. Originally from the Pacific Northwest, she now lives in Southern California where she enjoys tole painting, studying ancient languages and spending time with friends and family.
