Publisher's Summary

Novelist and professional companion Evangeline Ames has rented a cottage in the outskirts of Little Dixby, far from the London streets where she was recently attacked. Fascinated by the paranormal energy of nearby Crystal Gardens, she finds some pleasurable diversion in sneaking past the wall to explore the grounds. And when her life is threatened again, she instinctively goes to the gardens for safety.
Lucas Sebastian has never been one to ignore a lady in danger, even if she is trespassing on his property. Quickly disposing of her would-be assassin, he insists they keep the matter private. There is plenty of whispering about him already, with rumors of treasure buried under his garden, and occult botanical experiments performed by his uncle - who died of mysterious causes.
Immediately sensing each other's psychic talents, as well as their mutual desire, Lucas and Evangeline find themselves with an even more pressing concern. Whoever tried to have her killed will try again. But who would want her dead?
With Evangeline's skill for detection, and Lucas's sense of the criminal mind, they soon discover that they share a common enemy. And as the dangerous energy emanating from Crystal Gardens grows stronger, they realize that to survive they must unearth what has been buried for too long.

Enchanting Paranormal Mystery!!

I wasn't sure if I was going to enjoy this book, some how I felt skeptical. Really do know why!! And I must say it was unfounded. I very much enjoyed the book but didn't care much for the narrator. I would have enjoyed it more had the book had a different narrator. Somehow I found that Justine Eyre had difficulty with the male voices. They came out scratchy, like a bone stuck in ones throat!

Now for the story line. This books is very similar to other Amanda Quick titles about the Paranormal like the Arcane Society series. We read about people with psychical powers and how some accept them readily like Evangeline Ames and how some are still coming to terms with it, cause ones family members don't care much for their powers or are scared of their powers cause they are not familiar with them like Lucas Sebastian.

The story line is about Evangeline who comes to Little Dixby to relax and get inspiration for her series book which gets published in the local papers one chapter at a time. Then we have Lucas who recently inherited Crystal Gardens from his Late Uncle. Lucas suspects that his late uncle was murdered and someone's trying to murder Evangeline. They put their powers together and thwart the murder, find the murderer, render justice and discover Treasure!!!
A Lovely Story in all....
