In Grave Consequences, Cass hears the voices of the dead. A lot of them…making such a cacophony that she can’t understand what they want. Finally, while visiting her town’s lighthouse with friends, she hears a clear message, “Stay away from the lighthouse.” Immediately afterwards she sees a man fall from a window to his death. Just like the first lighthouse keeper, Samuel, had died in the late seventeen hundreds. Was Samuel warning her? What or who was the mysterious silhouette she saw in the same window a second later? Could Cass use her gift to find the killer? Or can Cass and her friends, Bee and Stephanie, investigate in a more traditional manner?
With at least one ghost, a psychic, a murderer and a lost treasure, this book has something for everyone. In addition, there are genuine characters that you quickly care about. It also has a sweet romance between Cass and the handsome Detective Luke. And don’t forget Cass’ giant Leonberger dog, Beast. The murderer was a bit too easy to discover. But that allowed me the freedom to enjoy the populace of Bay Island all the more. If you love character-driven cozies, you will enjoy visiting Bay Island for a few hours. 4 stars!

Cass Donovan is reminded that you can’t believe everything you hear, especially when it comes from the dead . . .
When stories begin circulating of a centuries-old ghost haunting the Bay Island lighthouse, Cass is caught up in mystical happenings of her own, with countless voices from the beyond all clamoring for her attention with dire warnings. But before she has a chance to learn whether there’s a connection between the rumored ghost and her restless visitors, the lighthouse keeper mysteriously falls to his death, and Cass’s reputation for communing with the dead lands her right in the middle of the police investigation.
Cass knows the victim was no saint, as he made little effort to hide his philandering ways from his wife or anyone else, and often acted out with no thought for the feelings of others. But had he finally gone too far, or were there more menacing motives behind his murder? As Cass begins building a list of suspects, including the man’s supposedly grieving wife and a mysterious new woman in town, she also turns her ear to those otherworldly voices, hoping for a clue. And as she begins to close in on the culprit, she realizes too late that if she’s not careful, she’ll soon be communicating with the dead in person . . .
