Cass Donovan is reminded that you can’t believe everything you hear, especially when it comes from the dead . . .
When stories begin circulating of a centuries-old ghost haunting the Bay Island lighthouse, Cass is caught up in mystical happenings of her own, with countless voices from the beyond all clamoring for her attention with dire warnings. But before she has a chance to learn whether there’s a connection between the rumored ghost and her restless visitors, the lighthouse keeper mysteriously falls to his death, and Cass’s reputation for communing with the dead lands her right in the middle of the police investigation.
Cass knows the victim was no saint, as he made little effort to hide his philandering ways from his wife or anyone else, and often acted out with no thought for the feelings of others. But had he finally gone too far, or were there more menacing motives behind his murder? As Cass begins building a list of suspects, including the man’s supposedly grieving wife and a mysterious new woman in town, she also turns her ear to those otherworldly voices, hoping for a clue. And as she begins to close in on the culprit, she realizes too late that if she’s not careful, she’ll soon be communicating with the dead in person . . .
Grave Consequences is the fifth book in this cozy mystery with light paranormal elements. This delightful series is set in Bay Island, a little town just a ferry ride from Long Island. Cass and Bee are two of my favorite cozy mystery characters. Bee is larger than life and full of personality. He cares deeply for his friends and always has me saying “awwww” or laughing out loud. Cass is smart and determined. Even when she doesn’t understand her psychic abilities, she still tries her best to help the people who need helping.
I really enjoyed that this book centered around the Bay Island Lighthouse. It was a way for us to visit somewhere new on the island which was exciting. Ms. Gregory does a nice job of keeping the pace in the story and the mystery was interwoven in a way that had me not sure whodunit. Those are both signs of a great book for me. If I could give this one more than 5 stars, I would. 🙂 I have been a fan of this series since book one and I was thrilled to see that it was continuing. I’m not ready to let Cass, Bee, and the other residents of Bay Island go just yet.
