The beginning of October, we had to bury my grandfather. The days leading up to the trip, my mind was scattered and I couldn’t focus on anything. I tried reading different books from The List, but my focus wasn’t there. I tried to watch a movie, but my dvd player was broken. I was stuck… I couldn’t get past my own mind, so I went scrolling through my library on my Nook. I stumbled across this book that I had downloaded for free.

It can be difficult to read a book from an app on my computer, so several weeks ago, when there were fireworks and I needed my Nook to play Ozzy’s calming music at night, I was wide awake and decided to read an ebook that was on my Nook.

Diana Iverson has it all, a blossoming malpractice firm and a seemingly perfect fiancé, when she receives news of her estranged aunt’s sudden passing. Diana inherits her aunt’s old home and decides to take a last minute trip up to Maine. While there, she discovers her aunt’s tarot cards which keep popping up at strange times, along with a handsome neighbor and his big, black lab. However, when strange incidents keep happening and several sabotage attempts on the house and her car, Diana begins to suspect her aunt’s death wasn’t from natural causes, but she may be putting her own life at risk.
Colleen Gleason’s mystical book is descriptive and will have readers feeling as though they are living the story. This book is about learning to conquer old insecurities and trusting in your intuition, in order to be open to trusting others. The second half of the book picks up the pace and is packed full of suspense. Though at times the storyline can be predictable, the ending contains a major twist that will leave readers shocked and speechless.
