Aubrey and Levi are compelling and likable, both individually and as a team, and the way their stories intersect increases the appeal. Just the right blend of emotion and humor combine with captivating suspense for a paranormal mystery that is sure to delight fans.

Aubrey Ellis has a gift: She can communicate with the dead. They find her; she certainly doesn’t seek them out. From her childhood at the traveling carnival to her present employment at her local newspaper, Aubrey has kept her ability out of sight. But when a break in a cold case has her joining forces with sexy Levi St. John, her already complicated life becomes even more so — and in more ways than one. (MONTLAKE, Mar., 374 pp., $12.95)
