Presley Parker is hoping to put her previous party disasters behind her, but things get off to a rocky start when she agrees to host a seance party for Jonathan Ellington. Jonathan is a micromanager, and his wife's tastes in decorations are cheap.
This party is a chance for Jonathan to introduce his revolutionary 4D projection system. They're hosting it at the famous Winchester Mystery House, and as the main event, Jonathan is going to use the software to bring Sarah Winchester back to life to interact with his guests.
Things seem to be going well at the party until Sarah takes on a life of her own. Her voice suddenly changes and she accuses Jonathan of having multiple affairs. He and his wife rush out of the room and disappear. Meanwhile, Presley finds a dead body. When people start turning to Presley to find the answers, can she make sense of it all?
This is now the third book in the series, and I must admit that I have come to really enjoy the characters. It was great to spend time with all of them again. And, really, what could be a better location for a book in this series.
The story started out a bit slowly as we are given lots of background on the Winchester Mystery House. Maybe it's because I've been there, but I felt bored by these passages. Once the story really got going, it was a wild ride that kept me guessing until the end. The climax seemed a bit abrupt, but it certainly did make sense out of what had been happening.
I'd feel badly about what I am going to write if Presley were a real person, but since she isn't, I won't. I hope Presley has a long career planning murderous parties. These trips are always fun.
NOTE: I was sent a copy of this book in hopes I would review it.
