Clairvoyant and Present Danger by Lena Gregory

Clairvoyant and Present Danger by Lena Gregory

My Thoughts

Clairvoyant and Present Danger by Lena Gregory is the third book in the Bay Island Psychic Mystery series. This series is so fun. It’s one of those where I feel really connected to the characters. I love Cass, Bee, and Stephanie, as well as the supporting characters. I was quickly swept up in this mystery. Cass finds herself dealing with a ghost and a body on the beach among other things. And someone doesn’t want Cass looking into any of it…

Ms. Gregory does an amazing job of weaving a mystery with paranormal elements that kept me guessing. I found myself wanting to read the story all at once to find out what happens! This is a series that …
