Four centuries ago, in a small Scottish village, three baby girls escaped the wrath of a witch hunter. Today, one young woman will learn about her secret history, her heart's destiny, and the sisters she never knew she had...
With her blue-black hair and dark eyes, Raye Larsen has never fit in with the Scandinavian community of New Bergin, Wisconsin. Being adopted is part of the reason she feels like an outsider, but what really sets Raye apart is her ability to see dead people. Everywhere.
She’s learned to keep her visions to herself . . . until she stumbles onto the ghost of a murder victim who needs Raye’s help. Enter Bobby Doucet, a distractingly handsome homicide detective who has been tracking a killer all the way from New Orleans. Could this be the break in his case he’s been looking for all along?
Meanwhile, the deeper Raye gets involved with the case—and with Bobby—the closer she comes to unlocking the mystery of her own origins. What she discovers about herself could destroy everything she knows . . . and everyone she loves. Is finding the truth worth the risk?
Filled with dark magic, dazzling romance, and dire suspense, this is the first book in a thrilling new series by New York Times bestselling author Lori Handeland.
Loved this! Raye is a great character. She was adopted and lives in a small town in Wisconsin and has never quite fit in. She also sees dead people. I really enjoyed her voice. Also, living in a smallish town in Wisconsin myself, I enjoyed the Wisconsin references, like the Badgers, Packers, and Leinies. :) Things get serious when there is a murder in the town. When it is linked to a serial killer in New Orleans, Bobby comes to town and they cross paths. Ghosts, murder, romance. I just loved this and couldn't put it down. I can't wait to read the next book!
