From the bestselling author of Miramont's Ghost. Can a grieving widow unravel a message from the spirit world?
Elise Brooks dreams of a car accident on an icy road. Weeks later, her beloved husband, Michael, is killed in just such a crash. Now, overcome with grief and uncertainty, Elise believes his spirit may be following her in the form of a raven, trying to tell her something from beyond the grave.
Desperate to understand the signs, Elise embraces both the Native American wisdom she grew up with and the world of psychics and seers. So when a tarot-card reader suggests she take a journey to the mysterious address found in Michael’s old jacket, she embarks on a cross-country trek to follow the clues.
Accompanied by Tom Dugan, an engineer and scientist who does not believe in psychics, mediums, or the hoodoo “conjure woman” they encounter on the road, Elise navigates the rituals and omens of the spirit world in an attempt to unravel the mystery of her husband’s message.

Check out the full review at Kritters Ramblings This one was a little out of my comfort zone due to the subject matter, but every once in a while I like to stretch and make myself a little uncomfortable when I read! I don't tend to really adhere to the belief of other worldly spirits and ghosts floating around, maybe because I haven't had an interaction yet with one (that I know of!), so I decided to join this tour to read the book to see if it may change my view. First, the reason I was able to stick with the book is the character Elise. Yes, she was a believer from the beginning and was open to being led by spirits and her gut feeling, but she wasn't took quirky and weird. She still felt real. There is a chance I would have quit the book if it hadn't been for her and how the author wrote her.
I was intrigued to learn about Native American culture, folklore and the world of psychics and mediums. In The Blue Hour Elise is suffering intense grief after the death of her husband. She believes she is responsible, because she saw the car accident in her dreams and did not tell Michael in advance. Elise embraces both, Native American wisdom she grew up with and the world of psychics and seers. She believes his spirit may be with her in the form of a raven. There are forces at work beyond her understanding and she turns to both the Native American wisdom she grew up with and psychics, which she has always been skeptical. Clues lead her to take a journey after finding a mysterious address found in her late husband’s jacket. She puts her trust in a new friend, Tom, or at least she hopes he is a friend, and follows the clues. Tom does not believe in the supernatural but is happy to help Elise on her journey. Together they will both find more than they could have ever imagined. This is my first time to read a book from this author and did find the story interesting and do recommend this story for those who want an easy intriguing read. I received a digital copy of this book from NetGalley and Lake Union Publishing for my review
I received a free electronic copy of this novel from Netgalley, Elizabeth Hall, and Lake Union Publishing in exchange for an honest review. Thanks for sharing your hard work with me! I ask to review this book because it is centered for the most parts in my New Mexico - those little communities scattered across our beautiful mountains inhabited by fiercely independent people with great heart. Our protagonists fit that mold in unique and surprising ways - a good story, very well told. And that golden hour of mountain dawning and the healing gloaming as night falls have important rolls as well. I think you will adore Elise as she finds her way through grief, love feisty best friend Monica and share a chuckle over scientist Tom - this is a book that will set your troubles aside for a time.
