This is the sixth book in the Bay Island Psychic series by Lena Gregory who writes another of my favorite series, The All-Day Breakfast Cafe. It’s awesome to have read this series from the very beginning and see how Cass has grown and developed some latent abilities. I just love her relationship with Bee and Stephanie, most especially Bee. He’s one of my most favorite book characters ever. He’s just the type of person I’d like for a friend meaning he’s loyal and protective, but he tells it like it is and doesn’t even hide it when he’s scared himself. I love sweet Beast pup more every time I read about him. He might not have been shaking water all over the tub and Bee this time, but he’s sure learned that Uncle Bee is a pushover when it comes to giving him treats and food, lol.
Luke and Cass are at a comfortable place in their relationship, and I’m always glad when there’s no conflict there. Luke’s most helpful having finally accepted Cass’s abilities even if he doesn’t quite understand them. I’m always eager for the next book in this series!
My Goodreads review:
I’d been needing a Bee/Cass/Beast fix for a long time, and this was better than I could have even imagined. This book was a special treat since it was set in the winter when Bee doesn’t get as much design business and actually had the time to hang out and sleuth with Cass. Stephanie was being kept busy with her little adopted boy, so there wasn’t a whole lot with her, but she was in all the parts she usually was especially the group readings.
This was so well-plotted and hard to figure out that I just eventually sat back and enjoyed the ride. Bee was definitely at his shining best being first and foremost awesomest friend and protector in the universe and there’s always his so-scared-of-ghosts-he-passes-out thing which is always hilarious! He’s kinda like a human version of Scooby Doo when he does that.
There were a lot of secrets held and layers to the people involved in the mystery. I was glad to see Simone being the voice of reason and pretty much making Cass have a police presence there for what ended up being the showdown. I always hate for these books to end, but they always end in such a way that you do get a happy family feeling and definitely a good book hangover!
I voluntarily read and reviewed an ARC of this book provided by the publisher via NetGalley, and my opinions are my own.
