I’m so excited to be a stop on the blog tour for author Lena Gregory and her new book Grave Consequences. This is the 5th book in her A Bay Island Psychic Mystery Series. The book was really good.

Cass Donovan is reminded that you can’t believe everything you hear, especially when it comes from the dead . . .
When stories begin circulating of a centuries-old ghost haunting the Bay Island lighthouse, Cass is caught up in mystical happenings of her own, with countless voices from the beyond all clamoring for her attention with dire warnings. But before she has a chance to learn whether there’s a connection between the rumored ghost and her restless visitors, the lighthouse keeper mysteriously falls to his death, and Cass’s reputation for communing with the dead lands her right in the middle of the police investigation.
Cass knows the victim was no saint, as he made little effort to hide his philandering ways from his wife or anyone else, and often acted out with no thought for the feelings of others. But had he finally gone too far, or were there more menacing motives behind his murder? As Cass begins building a list of suspects, including the man’s supposedly grieving wife and a mysterious new woman in town, she also turns her ear to those otherworldly voices, hoping for a clue. And as she begins to close in on the culprit, she realizes too late that if she’s not careful, she’ll soon be communicating with the dead in person . . .
The characters are well developed and well rounded. I really like the friendship between Cass, Bee and Stephanie. They are such good friends and would do anything for each other. And I really like how dramatic Bee can be, he makes me laugh. The secondary characters in the book add a lot to the story.
The writing style flows smoothly and it defines the characters very clearly through their actions and words. The author is very talented in her descriptive writing and these descriptions pulled me into the story from the very beginning. I enjoyed the paranormal aspect of this book, and thought that Cass being able to communicate with the dead made it even more interesting. The mystery was well plotted and had enough clues to sift through and suspects to consider. The ending was very climatic and nerve racking.
I would recommend this book to anyone who enjoys a well crafted cozy mystery. And if you like paranormal cozy, give this book a try.
I voluntarily reviewed an ARC of this book provided by the publisher, Beyond The Page Publishing, and NetGalley, which I greatly appreciate.
