The first meeting of the Tipton Hollow Psychic Circle doesn’t exactly go as planned, especially when one of its members suddenly dies in the middle of Harriett’s parlour floor. The arrival of the handsome Detective Inspector from Great Tipton throws Harriett’s world into turmoil, and the instant attraction she feels for him shocks her more than the unusual messages she receives at the séance.
Mark’s investigation reveals a complex web of mysteries that are as baffling as they are intriguing, and he soon enlists the help of Harriett in his quest to uncover the truth. Are the 'clairvoyants' really able to speak to the dead? Or are they wanted by Scotland Yard for fraud? With threats being made directly toward Harriett, Mark wastes no time in using the events that unfold around him to spend as much time as possible with her. Unfortunately, with unexplained deaths, sinister threats and disappearing villagers, his shocking proposal does little to keep her safe and capturing Harriett becomes a race against time to uncover the identity of the person, or persons, responsible for the murders before Harriett becomes the next victim.
Come and meet the members of Tipton Hollow's most spooky circle, in this exciting new Victorian romantic mystery series with a difference. Harriett, Beatrice, Tuppence, Constance, Eloisa and Babette have their work cut out for them as they try to evade the gossips, angry spirits, and their persistent admirers who will do anything to capture their hands in marriage! Being outrageously compromised, almost run over by a runaway carriage, kidnapped, arrested for murder and shockingly propositioned are the least of their concerns with the parsimonious Miss Smethwick on the loose. But does she have her own secrets she needs to keep hidden? More importantly, who is hiding in the shadows attempting to thwart the psychic circle uncovering the truth? Are there really such things as ghosts?
