“It all started with my Aunt Viola’s Ouija Board. It was an old one, and sort of shabby. I guess Mrs. Kincaid had been using it ever since she bought it in ’03 when they first came out, but she claimed it still worked. Whether it worked or not, Mrs. Kincaid gave it to Aunt Vi after her own custom-made one with a large emerald in the center arrived from overseas. Mrs. Kincaid declared it had been made by a Gypsy woman in Rumania but I had my doubts then, and I have my doubts now.”

  1. Ouija boards freak me out!!

    Happy Friday!

    My FLF comes from a book I’m reading now Secrets of the Tulip Sisters by Susan Mallery.

    Kelly Murphy was willing to accept certain injustices in the world. That brownies had more calories than celery.

    Happy Holidays!

  2. Ouija board? Nothing good can come of that!

    Next up on my TBR…
    The music seeped into her soul like fog over the Thames. (from A Song Unheard by Roseanna M. White)

    Merry Christmas!

    • A very good historical mystery and is NOT A paranormal. It takes place in California, 1920s and we’ll research. Daisy makes her living as a medium. She is not one. There is romance and the after effects of World War 1

    Today on my blog I am featuring Desert Duet by Debra Marvin. I’m just beginning chapter 3, so I will leave the first line from that chapter.

    “The new gray fedora, with its crisp, black grosgrain band, would be a stylish, but dismal failure at preventing sunburn.”

    I’m really enjoying this story! Happy Friday. 😊

    Super scary! Run, don’t walk, away from the ouija board! Merry Christmas!

    • This a fun read. I just added my review to The site. The ouija board is featured throughout the series but the series is a NOT a paranormal but a very good historical one. It is often funny and at times can be sad.

  5. Sounds quite entertaining. Going to check out your review. 😀
    Happy Friday!

    That book probably isn’t one I would enjoy. Though it isn’t paranormal, I prefer not reading books with psychics and mediums. 🙂

    My first line comes from Deborah Raney’s Circle of Blessings:

    Dakota Territory, 1864

    It was almost closing time, and in all of his seventeen years, James Collingwood could not remember being so bone-weary as he felt tonight.

    Merry Christmas!!

  7. This one sounds interesting, I enjoy the cozy mystery-type books. Merry Christmas!

  8. I have to agree with Phyllis and all the others who run from psychics and mediums. It wouldn’t interest me no matter how good the book is. The book I’m featuring on my blog is A Match of Sorts by Lucette Nel. I wish you a very Merry Christmas!
