Isabella Jordan and her son, Max, have agreed to stay in Lily Dale, NY, and care for the Valley View Guesthouse at the behest of the owner. It's the end of tourist season, and Lily Dale, home of the spiritualist movement, is dead in the fall and winter. Then Bella's next-door neighbor Odelia Lauder persuades Bella to host a destination wedding for a friend. Johneen Maynard is a bridezilla of the first degree and as the wedding looms, the spirits begin to tell Odelia that fate is about to intervene. As a blizzard ramps up and a murder attempt is made on Johneen, Bella is caught in the house with a killer.
VERDICT In this charming sequel to Nine Lives, Bella is doing her best to recover from her husband's death and make a new life for her son. Some days she feels stronger than others. Anyone who enjoys Nancy Atherton's "Aunt Dimity" mysteries will be drawn to this cozy.
