The Book:

Artist Sarah McDougall flees from New England to Florida’s west coast thinking she can escape her unwanted psychic abilities. When she finds a dead body buried under the sand trap on the thirteenth hole of the golf course behind her home, Sarah realizes she was mistaken. She is stuck with an ability that will nearly be her undoing. 

Unable to shake the sick feeling in the pit of her stomach, Sarah turns to her neighbor Raven DeVille, a swashbuckling pirate-like handsome man, for help, only to find he has secrets of his own. The duo investigates the murder with surprising twists that place Sarah in harms way more often than she ever thought possible.

Peek into the book:
     Eerie owl hoots echoed across the thirteenth
green. A full harvest moon spilled its golden glow across the golf course. I
walked Sparky on our nightly stroll along the cart path. We were near Spyglass
Lane, the cul-de-sac where I lived. My house loomed in the shadows a short
distance away.

I was new to the
neighborhood, and my unsettled state of mind left me wondering if the move was
the right one.  

Frequent stops were the order of the late evening
as Sparky, my pudgy Bassett Hound, investigated everything he came across. I
glanced to the right when something caught my eye. Sparky turned in the same
direction and waited. I could have sworn a shadowy figure dodged behind a
cluster of trees. Was it my imagination or a trick of light and dark?

The eerie hooting continued and I was
spooked. With a light tug on the leash, Sparky turned from the shadows and
scooted across the crunchy Florida grass, pulling me off the green and along
the side of my house, to the front door. I was more than anxious to get inside.
My heart thudded against my ribcage.
