Whispers of Warning (A Change of Fortune Mystery) by Jessica Estevao

The first thought I had when I read Whispers of Warning (A Change of Fortune Mystery) by Jessica Estevao was, how on earth did I miss the first part? The first thing I did after finishing reading it was grab a copy of part one. I really love anything that hints at paranormal, so when I saw that this had that theme I grew excited. I was so happy that once I started I realized I was in for so much more than just a theme. The tone is perfect for the time frame it is set in, a setting that is richly detailed and easy to imagine. I would stay at the hotel! The characters are awesome and well rounded. I felt a connection with several and am truly excited to see where this series goes. You can grab part one now, and pre-order this part, which will be available tomorrow!

Pre-order your copy now on Amazon.

From the back of the book:

Ruby Proulx’s new life in Orchard Beach, Maine, faces some sinister complications in the next Change of Fortune Mystery by Jessica Estevao…

Free from the clutches of her con artist father, Ruby Proulx is starting to settle in at the Belden, her aunt Honoria’s seaside hotel. She loves finally being rooted in one place and also feels a sense of purpose as she helps Honoria keep her business afloat by acting as a psychic medium for the hotel’s metaphysically inclined guests.

When one of the guests, renowned Spiritualist and outspoken suffragist Sophronia Foster Eldridge, checks into the hotel for a monthlong stay, Ruby finds her sense of purpose expands outside the confines of home and family. Sophronia takes Ruby under her wing and mentors her in the mediumistic abilities, encouraging her to fight for women’s rights. 

But not everyone is as happy with Sophronia’s appearance in Old Orchard. When a dangerous act of sabotage is carried out and a body is found floating in the pool of a local bathhouse, Ruby takes it upon herself to find answers— and in the process learns that her new friend has been hiding some deadly secrets of her own…
