Death at First Sight Blog Tour

It doesn’t take a crystal ball to see that something’s not right on Bay Island...

Title: Death at First Sight

Author: Lena Gregory
Publisher: Berkley
Pages: 304
Genre: Cozy Mystery

Since she left her psychiatric practice in New York City to open up a psychic shop in her hometown on Bay Island, Cass Donovan has given her fair share of readings to conflicted customers. But what she sees in Ellie Callahan’s future doesn’t bode well.

When Ellie’s mother, Marge, publicly confronts Cass about the reading, the embarrassment makes her want to curl up and die. And when she later stumbles across Marge’s body—and is a suspect in her murder—Cass is suddenly the star of Bay Island’s rumor mill.

Cass is determined to prove her innocence and save Ellie from meeting the fate in her unfortunate vision. But even with the help of her friends Bee and Stephanie, Cass will have to channel some serious sleuthing instincts to find the real killer...

Cass sucked in a breath, the gasp audible in the silence of the small room. Oh no . . . The walls pressed in on her, loomed over her, threatened to suffocate her. This cant be
happening again.

Is everything all right?

Umm . . . sure. Darkness encroached, tunneling her vision. She forced it back, counted to ten, took deep breathsanything to fight back the blackness. She struggled against the urge to push the glass ball away from her. Sorry. I must have zoned out for a minute.She averted her gaze, hoping the other woman wouldnt catch the lie.

The womans eyebrows drew together, a frown creasing her forehead.

Are you sure you didnt see anything bad?Cass forced a laugh as she shoved her chair back, stood, and moved away from the table. Of course not. I told you

I would only allow good spirits to enter.Liar.

If I could have dropped everything else and read this book in one sitting I would happily do so.
This exciting adventure has everything you want in a cozy mystery except a cat. There is an adorable, drooly, fluffball puppy and unfortunately psychic Cass did not foresee his effect on her future.

This fascinating story takes place after tourist season has ended and most of the people around town know each other and each other's business. Gossip and suspicion play major roles.
The main characters are creative types, one especially with a dramatic flair. Three best friends that show up for each other even when they wish they could do anything else.
Add in a handsome stranger with a delectable accent and a propensity for showing up at prime moments, and whether you believe in ghosts and spirits or not, this book is very hard to set down.

Even with a murderer on the loose, reading this book made me wish I could visit Bay Island.
I want to read more about the people I met there.
