Once the war is over, the spiritualist movement booms. Those with money turn to people like Daisy for comfort. By this I mean Daisy and her Ouija Board are hired to perform séances to help ease the minds of family members who have lost someone unexpectedly. Daisy considers what she does as spiritual healing.

Set in 1920's Pasadena where Daisy exercises her dubious spiritualistic gifts ( freely admitted by her !) and ends up involved with the rich and wonderfully portrayed Kinkaid family and some missing bank bonds.
Daisy is a superb character and her family and friends are wonderfully portrayed, especially that of her war injured husband Billy and their relationship. The descriptions of Aunt Vi's food made me realllly hungry !!!
I LOVED this book , I've already downloaded the next 3 in the series and am eagerly awaiting the last 2 of the 6 in the series to appear in Kindle so please let that happen soon.
A fun cozy mystery with a great heroine, do buy it !!!

I like Carola Dunn's books so thought this would be a good read. It wasn't. I didn't empathise with Daisy and frankly cared not what happens in her life.Published 14 months ago by noddy
