Nothing invests emotions like a high-speed novel in which the heroine unravels answers about herself. I am aware I constantly hope a mystery will be about something curious and will have a meaningful spirit encounter. It is exciting that Melanie and Ginnette, her retired opera Mother, are born from women who can see and speak with them. One cost ladies of the recent four generations a lot but they built lives of beautiful memories and love. This contact with the ethereal realm, ciphers to solve, and hidden places to look enthral me and Karen did not squander this wonder on an eighteen year-old. She gives us a realistic forty year-old heroine!
Even her writing suits me: brisk conversations; never lurching out of the fiction with an extraneous "she said", "he said". Most importantly, we follow how Melanie feels. Growth abounds in this series. Her Father looks like he will believe Melanie and Ginnette were never speaking to thin air! There is a scary action scene that raises these novels far past the calibre I hoped. It is a thrill to accompany Melanie's small circle, who combine their gifts for puzzles and investigating. It leaves a unifying feeling. These spectacular books are the reason I read.
If you are willing to suspend disbelief, you will, very likely, enjoy the slow revelation of the mystery and White's gift for creating characters that feel like friends.
waiting for the new release in Jan, 2017. Service is great as always.
