Storm of Secrets by Loretta Marion Blog Tour and Giveaway


Synopsis:

A deadly storm, a missing three-year-old child, a suspicious death, and the eerie presence of the spirits of the dead set the stage for the second mesmerizing installment of Loretta Marion’s paranormal suspense series. 

A powerful storm descends upon Cape Cod’s Whale Rock at the peak of tourist season–and the weekend Cassandra Mitchell’s and Daniel Benjamin’s wedding is set to take place at The Bluffs, the magnificent Victorian mansion Cassie inherited from her family. In the wake of the storm’s destruction, three-year-old Lucas Kleister goes missing–and the body of small-time drug dealer Lee Chambers is found in a restaurant dumpster. Now, the WRPD are faced with a murder to solve, a missing child to find, and the aftermath of one of the worst storms in recent memory.

While aiding with the clean-up and helping the displaced, Cassie has been receiving cryptic messages from the spirits of her great-grandparents, Percy and Celeste Mitchell, the original residents of The Bluffs. At first, the messages are benign, but soon, they begin to point to something more sinister. As Cassie works to decipher their meaning, the specter of a mysterious local legend surfaces. The tale of Barnacle Boy–and what happened to him during another destructive storm decades earlier–will weave through the desperate search to find Lucas and the identity of a killer.

“Modern and historic mysteries collide in Marion’s bittersweet storytelling.” Kirkus Reviews

“[A] gripping sequel…Marion seamlessly weaves the multiple story threads together. Fans of tales of regional intrigue will be satisfied.” —Publishers Weekly

Cassie is back in the second Haunted Bluffs mystery. Still living in the haunted family home, she is now preparing to marry FBI agent Daniel Benjamin. With perfect timing, a  terrible storm descends on the Bluffs. In the aftermath, a man is found dead and a young child has gone missing.  Cassie starts to get clues from the other side as she tries to find a killer and a missing child.

I loved watching Cassie try to figure out the messages from her deceased grandparents as much as any other element of the story. They don’t flat out give her any answers but do help nudge her in the right direction. This was a suspenseful, well-written mystery and I hope Cassie, her family, and friends will be back for many more.
