Books from the Backlog - Death at First Sight

Today I'm linking up with Carole from Carole's Random Life of Books for Books from the Backlog.  I really enjoy the chance to feature a book that's been hiding in the piles of books for far too long!

Blurb:  Since she left her psychiatric practice in New York City to open up a psychic shop in her hometown on Long Island, Cass Donovan has given her fair share of readings to conflicted customers. But what she sees in Ellie Hawkins’ future doesn’t bode well.

When Ellie’s mother Marge publicly confronts Cass about the reading, the embarrassment makes her want to curl up and die. But when she later stumbles across Marge’s body—and is arrested for her murder—Cass is suddenly the star of Bay Island’s rumor mill.

Out on bail, Cass is determined to prove her innocence and save Ellie from meeting the fate in her unfortunate vision. But even with the help of her friends Bee and Stephanie, Cass will have to channel some serious sleuthing instinct to find the real killer...

Why It Needs to Come Off the Shelf:  I read the most recent book in the series in July and really enjoyed it.  It reminded me that I never read the first book in the series which reminded me that I bought the first book years ago and still haven't read it!


  1. I hope you end up enjoying this as much as the recent one :)

  2. I think I only read the first book of this series. Another one I have to get back to.

  3. Featuring Books from the Backlog is such a great idea.

  4. I love a good cozy, and the psychic elements sound so tempting!

  5. Yep always a champion of the first book in a series!!
