Dead of Winter: A Lily Dale Mystery by Wendy Corsi Staub

Bella and her son moved to Lily Dale after her husband's death.  She still can't hardly believe he's gone but she's trying to move on.  Lily Dale is a community of psychics and ghosts.  She has a woman who lives in her house and offers suggestions on home improvements.  Late one night, she sees someone who look like Elvis outside near her property.  She thinks it just another ghostly visitor.  It's not, it's a murderer...

Crooked Lane Books and Net Galley allowed me to read this book for review (thank you).  It will be published November 7th.

Bella has no idea she's in danger.  She doesn't even know about the murder until the next day when the body washes ashore.  And that's not the most important thing on her mind now.  The little boy who lives next door and plays with Max has gone missing.  Someone kidnapped him after he got off the schoolbus.

Jiffy told Max he was going to be kidnapped.  Max was sick that day and the snow was falling heavily and no one calls with a ransom demand.  Then his mother goes missing.

With Elvis looking for his golden rings and ready to kill for the third time, Jiffy gone and no one's sure where, and now his mother out in the snowy night with no winter clothes on, it looks like lots of sorrow coming up.

In the end, everything comes together.  It takes a certain type to live in the community that talks to spirits.  Could you do it?
