Interesting read; very different than the usual "romance" novel. Set soon after WWI and has a bit of a mystery and a good character study.
Once again readers engage with Daisy Majesty, a spiritual medium to Pasadena's wealthy. This time out, Daisy is asked to exorcise a ghost from a basement. Although she demurs (she's no expert in the field), the offer of payment in the form of one of her client's dachshund puppies convinces her to try: she hopes that a puppy will cheer up her invalid husband. It does look as though someone has been living in her client's basement, and when frequent family visitor, detective Sam Rotondo, mentions a young lady who's gone missing for two weeks, Daisy puts the pieces of the puzzle together. The young lady in question, however, had good reason to leave home, and Daisy can't help but get embroiled in her troubles. Readers will enjoy feisty, "spirited" Daisy and her predicament as she becomes involved in another's plight while keeping the good detective and her family from discovering what she is up to.
