In the new Bay Island Psychic Mystery, psychic Cass Donovan is thrown into the middle of a macabre murder she never saw coming . . .

With the summer tourist season on Bay Island in full swing, shop owner Cass Donovan barely has a minute to breathe, and things at Mystical Musings become even more hectic when a fight breaks out at one of her psychic readings. Shaken by the fracas and discouraged that her sixth sense seems to be on the blink, Cass is even more dispirited to learn that one of the men involved in the altercation was later found dead—and that a close friend of hers is the main suspect.

Desperate to help her friend prove his innocence and consumed by haunting visions, Cass follows the clues from one possible culprit to the next, including some very mysterious tourists and not a few questionable locals. And when the police turn to Cass to help them find out who committed the ghoulish deed, she knows she'll have to tread carefully, because her next grim premonition may be her last . . .

Praise for the Bay Island Psychic Mystery series:

"The future shows much success for this series! Fun, vibrant characters (as well as a sexy smolder or two for good measure) give the novel just the right tone." —RT Book Reviews on Death at First Sight

"I loved the protagonist, Cass. She and her friends were very well developed, and felt like a group of people I'd like to get to know." —The Book's the Thing

"I stayed up far too late into the evening because I couldn't put it down. A well-crafted mystery with a quirky cast of characters, and plenty of twists and turns to keep you guessing to the end." —The Mysterious Ink Spot on Death at First Sight

an intense mystery that had my heart pumping SPIRITED AWAY by Lena Gregory The Fourth Bay Island Psychic Mystery The heat wave spells trouble for Bay Island and its inhabitants, especially Cass Donovan. Cass knows something bad is going to happen, but she goes through with her group reading anyway. It proves to be an unmitigated disaster ending with two patrons nearly coming to blows. By the end of the night one is dead. Several people are back on the island, all planning to destroy Cass, ruining her reputation and her business. As Cass tries to prove her friend Emmett didn't kill his old nemesis, she finds her psychic abilities growing. Will they help her to solve the murder and save, not only her reputation, but her life? There's a heat wave in Bay Island and the heat is driving everything forward. Heat increases the intensity of everything, irritability, anger and conflict. The conflict is this fourth Bay Island Psychic Mystery is brutal. One horrible thing after another happens to Cass and while some are minor, some could have catastrophic effects. Her whole existence on the island is at risk. The stakes have never been higher, either for Cass or her friends, as they face several despicable characters. There's so much that I love about the Bay Island Psychic Mystery series, the unwavering friendship between Cass, Bee, and Stephanie, the crystals and other tools of divination in Mystical Musings, and Beast! I love how Cass is coming to accept her psychic ability and that it's playing a much larger role in the book. I'm excited to see Chief Rawlins and appreciate the way she works with Cass. I enjoy seeing Beast and laugh at his antics...I'm still giggling about the results from the colored pencils. SPIRITED AWAY is an intense mystery that had my heart pumping as it filled with dread. Lena Gregory made my emotions run high as I saw Cass' world starting to crumble. Layers of suffering and danger continued to rise until reaching a soul searing climax. I'm grateful for an exciting read, but am definitely ready for some cooler temperatures! FTC Disclosure – The publisher sent me a digital ARC provided through NetGalley, in the hopes I would review it.

Cass is knee deep in the tourist season and doesn't have time to even stop and think. When an altercation happens during one of her readings she feels as if she isn't centered. She really starts feeling as if her senses are off when one of the men from the blowup ends up dead. She isn't sure quite what is wrong but knows that she must get centered because a good friend has become a main suspect in the mans death. With all the things that she is seeing Cass knows that she must look toward her visions and follow what they are telling her to help her friend. The suspect list is long and with some of them being tourists she hopes that she'll be able to see just who the murderer is before this becomes a case that remains unsolved. Follow along as Cass looks toward her visions for clues as well as answers, helps the police, and also helps her friend in figuring out who the killer is and why they decided to become a killer. This was the first book I've read from this author and it was a great way to be introduced. Even though I hadn't read previous books I didn't feel lost and the characters were easy to get to know. I look forward to returning to the beginning and getting to know the characters even more.

Lena Gregory has a good, little-psychic series going with Spirited Away. Cass is having a party in which a reading occurs but everything is going wrong and culminates with a death later that night.The book starts out slow but picks up- steam around Chapter four...her friend is accused of a murder. The Series has a strong character in Bee, who always has our main character's back and I really grew to like him. The lifestyle and the cast of characters interacting with Cass are strong. I felt that the book had a lot of cleaning, wiping, and no-sleep descriptions, but the psychic moments were fun and I found myself wishing to know a lot more about crystals, moonstones, and readings. This is a new Author to me and I will be reading more of her work. A fun book... you will enjoy reading on those long, summer nights. My thanks to Netgalley and Beyond the Page

I really enjoyed Lena Gregory’s Spirited Away. The friendships were heartwarming. The plot was good and the story had enough twists and turns to keep me guessing about who was doing what and why. I found Ms. Gregory to be a really talented author and I really believe you will too if you enjoy a paranormal twist on your entertainment. The plot was intriguing without having to rely on the paranormal aspect to be so.

Lena Gregory is one of my favorite cozy mystery authors. She creates layers in both her characters and her story lines. It is tourist season in this installation of A Bay Island Psychic Mystery series. Cass Donovan’s Mystical Musings shop is swamped. When a fight breaks out at one of Cass’s readings and one of the men involved in the fight later shows up dead. Cass’s concern is twofold. First, there is a murderer on the loose in Bay Island and second, her sixth sense seems to be on the blink since she didn’t see it coming. To add further mayhem to the mix, Cass’s close friend is named as a suspect in the homicide. The clues take us on a delightful path full of twists and turns as Cass seeks to trap the murderer before the murderer traps Cass in his/her murderous web. If you are a fan of cozy mysteries and haven’t picked up one of Lena Gregory’s books yet, I highly recommend this series and the All-Day Breakfast Cafe Mystery cozies.

This has easily become one of my favorite cozy mystery series. I love the friendships and the characters I've met here. The author does a wonderful job of keeping me glued to the edge of my seat, not wanting to put the book down. It is a clean series, not graphic, but with clues the reader can follow on their own. There is a hint of romance which does not overpower the main reason readers are drawn to this series. The author also throws in moments that made me smile, which is always appreciated. Whether you are a believer or not, the paranormal elements of this story will have you wondering how the connections are being made and who is in danger. Cass finally finds validation for her abilities from some important people, including herself. Which leads us to wonder, how will this realization influence what comes next? I can't wait to find out!
