Overview

Funny, sexy, suspenseful and a little spooky....Colleen Gleason's Spooky Romantic Mystery series does not have to be read in order.

"When I want to scratch my paranormal itch, there's nothing better than a book by Colleen Gleason!" --Robyn Carr

"Fun and exciting romance...with a ghostly touch. Nancy Drew for grown-ups!" --Mara Jacobs, New York Times bestselling author

Diana Iverson is a sharp, up and coming attorney with a logical, scientific mind and a handsome fiancé--until the rug is pulled out from under her feet and her life is upended.

When her crazy Aunt Belinda dies, leaving her a big old house in Maine along with a box of Tarot cards, Diana takes the opportunity for a summer get-away far from the rat-race of Boston and the painful memories there. She doesn't expect to meet up with Ethan Tannock, the handsome neighbor next door who seems to be some sort of eccentric ghost-buster--along with his big, black Labrador Retriever.

But when the old house becomes the scene of vandalism and a number of break-ins, and it begins to appear as if Aunt Belinda's death was not as it seemed, Diana finds that life isn't always black and white and filled with logic.

And then there are Aunt Belinda's Tarot cards...which seem to be trying to tell her something from beyond the grave.

In the tradition of Barbara Michaels and Mary Stewart comes a new take on a modern gothic by bestselling author Colleen Gleason.

I loved The Shop of Shades and Secrets by Gleason and decided to give this a try. This is a nice read for those looking for a romantic mystery with a little occult thrown in. It's a fun story and a fast read that's great for either a sunny summer afternoon or a rainy day. I loved the wacky residents of Maine - especially the quilting ladies and their attempts at matchmaking. And of course the yummy Dr. Ethan Tannock who is just my type of man. If you like romance, mystery, paranormal, and gothic, this is definitely a book for you! Make sure to check out the Gardella Vampire Chronicles and The Envy Chronicles (written as Joss Ware) - 2 other great series by this author (my favorites).

The book is funny and well written. It is a good reading to relax, you know it is not too serious but at the same time, the characters are well developed and the plot decent enough. With a good cup of coffee it is a perfect way to end the day.

Diana Iverson has it all, a blossoming malpractice firm and a seemingly perfect fiancé, when she receives news of her estranged aunt’s sudden passing. Diana inherits her aunt’s old home and decides to take a last minute trip up to Maine. While there, she discovers her aunt’s tarot cards which keep popping up at strange times, along with a handsome neighbor and his big, black lab. However, when strange incidents keep happening and several sabotage attempts on the house and her car, Diana begins to suspect her aunt’s death wasn’t from natural causes, but she may be putting her own life at risk. Colleen Gleason’s mystical book is descriptive and will have readers feeling as though they are living the story. This book is about learning to conquer old insecurities and trusting in your intuition, in order to be open to trusting others. The second half of the book picks up the pace and is packed full of suspense. Though at times the storyline can be predictable, the ending contains a major twist that will leave readers shocked and speechless. Notes: I won this copy in a contest held by a different author.
