  • Must read mystery

    When Artemus Bancroft is called home by his aunt to help with a "situation" he isn't sure what to expect but it certainly wasn't that his aunt's deceased husband was haunting their home or the growing rumors of her involvement in his death. Will Artemus be able to clear his aunt's name when the rumors appear to have come from the deceased himself? I can't really call this a surprise story by one of my favorite authors as it was originally serialized for her Patreon supporters last year but timing just never seemed to be on my side and didn't get or take the opportunity to read it as it was being written. Now with the official release and the new year and holidays being over it seemed the perfect time to get stuck in. Plain and simple: WOW!!! Seance on a Summer's Night is everything I have come to love in Josh Lanyon's work and why she is one of my favorite author's and top automatic "1-click" purchases. Artemus is funny, clever, and a bit pig-headed with his skepticism which can make the reader want to give him a good shake every few pages but in a good way, afterall he is just looking out for his beloved aunt and how can you fault him for that? I may be a bit more open to the idea of hauntings and the afterlife than Artemus but I like to think I'd be equally determined to get to the truth, be it a real haunting or something even more sinister. As for the gardener with glowing references that doesn't seem to know one flower from the next? Well, Seamus has his own secrets that I won't delve into but let me just say the connection and attraction between him and Artemus is instant, off the charts, and yet Artemus doesn't let it get in the way of keeping his Aunt Halcyone safe. I haven't said much about the supporting cast of characters and I don't really think I will because each one brings something to the mystery that I don't want to give away but trust me when I say once you meet them you won't soon forget them. Some I wanted to wrap up in bubblewrap to keep them safe and others just gave me the heebie jeebies from the getgo but they all heighten the WOW-factor that made this story unforgettable. From the mystery to the romance to the humor, Seance on a Summer's Night is an edge of your seat read that makes you forget about eating and sleeping so if you have something else pressing on your calendar you may want to save this gem for a day that is wide open because you will not want to put it down once you pick it up. There is something about Seance that is obviously present day but with a 40s feel looming throughout, a lovely blend of gothic and noir flavors make this contemporary setting a very intriguing reading experience.

    Thanks for your feedback!
