Some secrets should remain locked in the past…
Celeste Kain hasn’t had a psychic vision in two years. After being brutally attacked while helping criminal investigation agency CORE stop a serial killer, her mind repressed her clairvoyant abilities. Married to CORE agent, John Kain, mother to their toddler, Olivia, and owner of an up-and-coming bakery, Celeste has been doing fine psychic-free. Only now the dead are using her body to tell their stories again…putting her new life and family at risk.
Haunted by a murdered woman, Celeste turns to a psychic mentor to learn how to control her gift, protect her family and bring justice to the dead. But the more she digs into the dead woman’s past, the further she slips into the unknown, unlocking secrets literally worth killing for. As the body count rises, it becomes clear: someone in the dead woman’s family is deeply, violently wrong. And Celeste needs to be careful, before she loses something more precious to her than her life.
Celeste Risinski, the heroine of Shadow of Danger (Book 1 C.O.R.E. Shadow Trilogy), is back with her own series. Join her as she learns how to deal with being a wife, mom, baker and…psychic investigator.

Great New paranormal series
I love all things paranormal and was very excited to read this. It was all I'd hoped for and more.
I'm excited that Celeste is getting her own series. Her and John are 2 of my faves. The struggles they have dealing with her gift serve to make the characters real and relatable. And the main story itself was very believable. And so good! I did not see that ending coming!
Ms Mason never disappoints. Her story telling skills are exceptional and I can't wait for the next one.
good kick off to new series
The first book in all of the Core series had a paranormal aspect to it. The rest were not. This first book in the Psychic Core series takes us back to Celeste and John. Since their book and all the harrowing things that Celeste went through her “gift” of experiencing what a victim goes through before they die has been quite for two years. During that time Celeste has become a mother and running her own bakery. So when out of the blue an episode hits her she is both shocked and excited. Shocked because when she goes into one of her trances she is not aware of anything that is going on around her – this could put her baby in harm’s way and she also knows her husband isn’t going to be thrilled its back either. On the other hand she is somewhat relieved that it’s back because is been a part of her whole life along with all the women in her family.
One of the big differences in this book is Celeste, through her father’s urging, is now going to a psychic mentor that is helping her learn how to control and stay grounded during her episodes. I’ve always enjoyed the author’s graphic details she writes of Celeste trances of how the victim was murdered – its always so vivid and you feel you are experiencing it right along with Celeste.
This was a good kick off to new series that looks to be where each book there will be a murder that Celeste needs to solve with her gift. Its also about the love between Celeste and John and the trust they both have to have in each other to deal with it. I am never disappointed in a Kristine Mason book and love all of the different break off Core series she write and look forward to reading them..
