A book about a orphaned young lady on vacation in New Jersey in the 1930s from her job as a nanny. She meets a young socialite and they visit a tarot card reading establishment where she encounters Peter, an undercover investigator bent on exposing psychic frauds. Ivy and Peter's attraction is instantaneous. Ivy learns she has her own powers when she takes part in a seance. This story was told from two points of view giving you the best of both worlds and both of them are hiding their own agendas. Catherine Stine made great use of period costumes, mannerisms and phrases. However, I felt that there needed to be more back story to Ivy (Fiera) being a witch. Her powers blossomed so quickly I wondered how she could contain them or how she instinctively knew how to perform the spells. That being said I can still recommend the book as an entertaining read with a wonderful ending.

Ivy is a nanny on a summer holiday in Asbury, New Jersey, in 1932. She often has premonitions and feels strangely attracted to the ocean, even though this is her first visit. Ivy knows nothing of the circumstances of her birth, other than her birth name, Fiera. When psychic Peter Dune calls her by that name during a séance and later gives her a deck of Tarot cards, Fiera embarks on a journey to discover her origins and her destiny. The story is told from the points-of-view of both Fiera and Peter. This leads to some repetition, as we sometimes see the same events from both perspectives. This author creates a great sense of atmosphere, capturing the voice and the mood of the nation during the Depression and Jazz Age. She includes historical references to Asbury Park, Hooverville, designer Elsa Schiaparelli, artist Salvador Dali, actress Irene Ware, actor Bela Lugosi, and the Morro Castle cruise liner. And she cleverly weaves supernatural fiction with a real-life tragedy. While this story is complete, the ending hints at adventures to come. Warnings: sexual references, mild sex scenes, alcohol consumption, drug use. I received this book in return for an honest review.
