Four women from very different backgrounds decide to buy a restaurant on the historic Queen Mary docked in Long Beach, California. While each brings their unique skills to the venture, they also bring along skeletons from their past. They are each hoping that this opportunity will help dampen the pain and allow them to move forward with their lives.
Conflicts, romance, and ghosts shortly ensue while the four work together on establishing their restaurant. Each character has an experience with a spirit which leads to exposing the mysteries behind the Queen Mary. At first, each of them hardly believes spirits exists until they collectively share their different confrontations. At the same time, these spirits become the catalyst to confront their issues from the past.
This novel by Patty V. Davis is a nice combination of historical fiction, paranormal, and mystery. The characters are nicely developed and the author does a wonderful and fun job of introducing surreal beings into the story. The second book in this trilogy, Spices & Oregano, was released November 30, 2017.
