Ruby Proulx’s new life in Orchard Beach, Maine, faces some sinister complications in the next Change of Fortune Mystery by Jessica Estevao…

Free from the clutches of her con artist father, Ruby Proulx is starting to settle in at the Belden, her aunt Honoria’s seaside hotel. She loves finally being rooted in one place and also feels a sense of purpose as she helps Honoria keep her business afloat by acting as a psychic medium for the hotel’s metaphysically inclined guests.
 
When one of the guests, renowned Spiritualist and outspoken suffragist Sophronia Foster Eldridge, checks into the hotel for a monthlong stay, Ruby finds her sense of purpose expands outside the confines of home and family. Sophronia takes Ruby under her wing and mentors her in the mediumistic abilities, encouraging her to fight for women’s rights.
 
But not everyone is as happy with Sophronia’s appearance in Old Orchard. When a dangerous act of sabotage is carried out and a body is found floating in the pool of a local bathhouse, Ruby takes it upon herself to find answers— and in the process learns that her new friend has been hiding some deadly secrets of her own…


Advance Galley Reviews

This was the second in a series in which I hadn't read the first book, but that in no way impacted my ability to enjoy this one. I will say that so much of the first book was referenced I did wonder how much of it was actually spoilers. I enjoyed this story immensely and found the time period and location to be really interesting. The characters themselves were excellently crafted and the bit of psychic spin they were centered against was right up my alley. My only issue with this murder mystery, and unfortunately it's a bit of a peeve of mine, is that the murder didn't happen until fully half way through the book. In fact, about 120 pages in I was ready to give it up. But because I given the book by the publisher I went ahead and pushed through and I am glad that I did I just wished I hadn't had to. While I won't go back to read the first in the series, because I do think I was given too much detail reading this one, I do think that I will most definitely be interested in the next in the series.

I really enjoyed this book! Never had read this author before. Her writing flowed nicely and the story was wonderful. I now feel I should read the first in the series to possibly get some more back ground on Ruby. Looking forward to more books in the series.

Good read ... looking forward to more from this author.
