Loweecey has created another fun novel featuring former nun Giulia Driscoll. Though her former career does not play as big a part in the story as in her earlier book, the story does present some odd (in a fun way) playfulness between that occupation and the current mystery. The presence of Tarot Card readers, fortune tellers, ghosts, and spirits will confuse the logically minded Giulia and her husband as they seek to free MacAllister (“Mac” to her friends) Stone, the owner of a haunted lighthouse, from the ghostly figures that seem to have begun to destroy her and her business.
Ghosts or not, Giulia Driscoll, Driscoll Investigations, and her husband, Detective Frank Driscoll, will get to the bottom of this creepy tale. Giulia and Frank begin by going undercover by taking a much needed vacation at the Bed and Breakfast that was the current incarnation of the lighthouse - and things go downhill from there. Break-ins, thefts, accidents, and other mischief all seem to point a finger at the long-known lighthouse ghosts. What other explanation can there be?
The book held my attention - keeping me up nights so I could quickly get to the end. Though I read the book at the tail end of a cool spring, the book would make a perfect Halloween read for the cozy mystery enthusiast. Of course, it could just as well fit into anywhere into an avid readers schedule - as long as they are willing to face a ghost or two.
