This is the first book I have read in this series, but it was such a delight that I’m going to backtrack and read the other books. The series takes place in California during the early 1920s--when Prohibition was in full swing. Daisy Gumm Majesty helps support her family--Ma, Pa, Aunt Vi and dachshund Spike--by doing spiritual readings for the privileged class. While Daisy knows she can't really commune with the Other Side, her engaging and caring ways make her highly successful at her profession. In Ancient Spirits, Daisy has just lost her beloved young husband to suicide--he’d been damaged by mustard gas during WWI and could no longer bear the pain. She is so deeply depressed that her kind and fabulously wealthy friend, Harold, persuades her to travel to Egypt with him, where he hopes she’ll recover from her doldrums. But things go horribly awry there, and Daisy and Harold find themselves in deadly danger. The ending truly warms the heart, as Daisy finds herself returning to the land of the living, with the possibility of a sweet romance brightening her future.
