"Sevier writes with a subtle, wicked humor and a sophisticated vibrancy that ushers the reader right into Depression-era Memphis -- and Nell's eccentric household . . . . Rich in Southern ambiance, evoking an aura of menace, a tongue-in-cheek humor and a tenderness all at the same time, this second book in the Psychic Socialite series has me desperately hoping it won't take Sevier long to conjure up the third."

Jane Sevier has created the perfect first novel in a presumed series . . . I loved this story and am looking forward to more in the series of plucky psychic socialite Nell Marchand."
This is a skilfully crafted, un-put-downable book by a writer who has a facility both with language and with plotting. It's well worth reading at least twice, as the main characters are intriguingly drawn and engaging, meriting a second look to understand them better through the twists and turns of the storyline. As a British reader, the setting in, and the vocabulary of, 1930s Memphis took me into a delightfully different world."
