An avid mystery reader from a young age, Nichole Bennett has devoured Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, Edgar Allen Poe and Agatha Christie. She has also had an ongoing fascination with the supernatural—everything from angels and spirits to ghosts and hauntings. It’s only natural that she combine her two interests to create mysteries with paranormal twists. Nichole lives in the Black Hills of South Dakota with her husband, two daughters, three dogs and three cats. When she’s not writing, she can be found reading, knitting socks, drinking coffee, eating chocolate or spending too much time online. Abyss readers will find great delight in her titles offered here by Abyss.

Moving is stressful enough, but when Cerri Baker moves with her family to the Black Hills of South Dakota, she begins seeing things-things like murder.

Once in the Black Hills, Cerri doesn't seem to have much choice as her spirit guide insists she find justice for a murdered man. As she struggles with her own destiny, Cerri must also convince the FBI that she is getting her information from another realm and not from first-hand knowledge of the murder.

Children’s tales aren’t about murder. Bedtime stories rarely involve corporate corruption and ruthless, power-mad billionaires. Fairytales don’t center on environmental terrorism and the end of all life on earth. Grown up novels are never about lost fairies or magic. Or are they? A quirky, cast of disparate, yet totally believable characters makes up this haunting novel of faith, redemption and hope, all centered around a supernatural creature, the last of her kind. In the heart of it all is a beautiful, dying child—Feryl—drawn to an equally mortal being whose magical life is slipping away...
