Albert puts a personal face on the Galveston hurricane of 1900, which claimed the lives of thousands. She also seamlessly merges time periods — no easy task. The further along readers get in the book, the easier it is to see the connection between the two plots.

China Bayles and Ruby Wilcox own a shop that offers homeopathic care ranging from plants to tea to tarot cards. Ruby’s semi-psychic abilities are put to the test when she is called in to exorcise a ghost from a house. The ghost, Rachel Blackwood, is filled with grief after her entire family was wiped out in a hurricane over a century earlier. Flashbacks explain the devastation of the tragedy and the despair that Rachel can’t seem to let go of. (PRIME CRIME, May, 304 pp., $25.95)
