She's not a psychic--she just plays one on TV.

Most folks associate the city of Salem, Massachusetts with witches, but for Lee Barrett, it's home. This October she's returned to her hometown--where her beloved Aunt Ibby still lives--to interview for a job as a reporter at WICH-TV. But the only opening is for a call-in psychic to host the late night horror movies. It seems the previous host, Ariel Constellation, never saw her own murder coming.

Lee reluctantly takes the job, but when she starts seeing real events in the obsidian ball she's using as a prop, she wonders if she might really have psychic abilities. To make things even spookier, it's starting to look like Ariel may have been an actual practicing witch--especially when O'Ryan, the cat Lee and Aunt Ibby inherited from her, exhibits some strange powers of his own. With Halloween fast approaching, Lee must focus on unmasking a killer--or her career as a psychic may be very short lived. . .

This will be a mini review because I negelected to review it on goodreads and can’t remember everything that happened in the story.

While I can’t seem to remember enough bout the book to write a long review, I do know that I really enjoyed it. It takes place in Salem MA which is about 30 minutes from where I live and deals with a sleuthing witch (well, she’s in denial of her abilities but that doesn’t mean she doesn’t have the). It’s an interesting story, although a little long, but I really enjoyed the mystery.
