DEATH AT FIRST SIGHT is the first book in the Bay
Island Psychic Mystery series and wow, what a fun
start to this new cozy mystery series! We are introduced
to our main group of characters and start to learn their
back stories as the mystery progresses. While Cass is the
main character, I have to admit I have a fondness for Bee
Maxwell and his creative and entertaining personality.
Cass took a little bit longer to grow on me as her
impetuous decisions initially annoyed me.
DEATH AT FIRST SIGHT has a plethora of suspects as Marge
is almost universally disliked. Lena Gregory utilizes
this to the fullest, as the reader is kept guessing until
the surprising end. If you like cozy mysteries, then give
DEATH AT FIRST SIGHT a try as you may find yourself
hooked on this intriguing new series.
