Whispers of Warning

I have a delightful story to tell you about today. It’s author Jessica Estevao’s latest Change of Fortune mystery, WHISPERS OF WARNING. I had hoped to have a review for you today but unfortunately, I’m running a bit behind…review to come later.

WHISPERS OF WARNING is the second tale of fearless clairvoyant Ruby Proulx, the sequel to series debut Whispers Beyond the Veil. Jessica’s historical mysteries are perfect for fans of Deanna Raybourn and Anna Lee Huber.

Ruby Proulx, Estevao’s approachable yet gutsy protagonist, has taken up residence at her aunt’s seaside hotel, where she acts as a medium.

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…

Jessica Estevao is the author of the debut novel in the Change of Fortune Mysteries, Whispers Beyond the Veil. She loves the beach, mysterious happenings, and all things good-naturedly paranormal.

While she lives for most of the year in New Hampshire, with her dark and mysterious husband and exuberant children, she delights in spending her summers on the coast of Maine where she keeps an eye out for sea monsters and mermaids. As Jessie Crockett, she writes the Sugar Grove Mysteries for Berkley Prime Crime.

Thanks for stopping by today. As I mentioned earlier, I hope to have a review of this fascinating story for you soon. Is there something so mysterious and intriguing about those covers?
