When a sixteen year-old girl with an embarrassing psychic gift she can’t control takes a job at a castle-turned-dinner theater, all she wants is the chance to wear a fancy gown and ogle her crush from afar, but when she stumbles over a dead body that promptly disappears, she must prove she didn’t hallucinate a dead girl before the killer strikes again.

  9. Is that crush in shining armor?
    Is that castle set atop miles of misty moors?
    Do the dinner guest have to eat without utensils?

  10. What a great sounding story! I also worked in a castle when I was younger. They say 3rd floor was haunted so I never went up there! Spooky. Love the cover! Can’t wait to read this book!

  11. This sounds like a great read! I mean, castles and murders and possible hallucinations are perfect. Plus, it’ll be interesting to learn what about her psychic abilities she finds embarrassing. Oh, I hope there are secret passages too! Did K.C. base the setting off the castle she previously worked in?

  14. Comment Great premise! As a recovering actor, I can taste the dinner theater setting — fertile ground for great characters, a few laughs and a history mystery. Look forward to reading…can even imagine a TV series 🙂
