Warner was a new author to me, and I enjoyed this mystery Presley Parker is a party planner, and was asked to plan a seance party to take place in the Winchester Mystery House That made it worth reading to me because of TV shows dealing with the location, but Presley was interesting, too, because she has ADHD, with which I m too familiar, as I have a daughter with it My only complaint is that the plot seems a little forced to me The police have a suspect arrested for the murder, yet the detective shows up for a trap Presley has set The detective even drove Presley s mother, and the suspect s father to the reveal What The police don t do that here, and some might see getting too close to suspects as a conflict of interest I still enjoyed the book, and want to read by this author.
