--1920s, Pasadena, California--
It's 1924 and spiritualist-medium Daisy Gumm joins with friends Flossie and Harold to help Lily Bannister, whose abusive husband nearly killed her.
Meanwhile, Mrs. Pinkerton--Daisy's best client--is in a tizzy, insisting Daisy use her (fake) spiritualist talent to end the engagement between her daughter and a most unsuitable man.
To Daisy's surprise, the two cases collide, placing her in the middle.
Now, Daisy must prove Lily's husband and Mrs. P's soon-to-be-son-in-law are in cahoots with nefarious human traffickers . . . before it's too late.
"Well plotted with a band of whimsical characters and genuine humor . . . as comforting as a warm mug of cocoa on a blustery day."~Diane Morasco, RT Book Reviews
