From Amazon - Artist Sarah McDougall flees from New England to Florida's west coast thinking she can escape her unwanted psychic abilities. When she finds a dead body buried under the sand trap on the thirteenth hole of the golf course behind her home, Sarah realizes she was mistaken. She is stuck with an ability that will nearly be her undoing. Unable to shake the sick feeling in the pit of her stomach, Sarah turns to her neighbor Raven DeVille, a swashbuckling pirate-like handsome man, for help, only to find he has secrets of his own. The duo investigates the murder with surprising twists that place Sarah in harms way more often than she ever thought possible.
Murder on Spyglass Lane is relative to a cozy mystery but with a bit more spunk. Sarah has some psychic abilities that has caused her to move house and state. Although her abilities are an asset, they can also be embarrassing. But you can't run from who you are. She stumbles over a dead body on a golf course and instantly finds herself immersed in the investigation. With the help of her handsome neighbor, with secrets of his own, Sarah soon finds herself losing her heart, something she least expected.
As the two begin to unearth clues and inch closer to the killer, the stakes rise and soon Sarah's life is in danger. With clever dialogue, diverse and dimensional characters and a sturdy plot that had me up late turning the pages, Murder on Spyglass Lane is an entertaining and highly recommended read!
