In her new book, Detective Dori Orihuela makes the arrest of her career within the filth-smeared walls of a dilapidated home. Among the drugs and weaponry, she meets the ghost of a pregnant woman whose warning saves her life. Dori goes back to her happy life with her boyfriend, Gavin and his precocious daughter. But the ghost doesn’t just follow her home, it found its way inside her.
When we last saw Dori Orihuela in her first thrilling paranormal mystery, Lost in the Light, she and her high school flame, Gavin Salazar got their second chance at love.
In this short romantic mystery, Girl in the Mist, Gavin sweeps Dori off to a romantic weekend in Carmel, California. Their charming cottage, hidden in the cypress trees, holds a dark secret. A young woman appears in the mist, not knowing her name or how long she’s been dead. When Dori tries to find out what happened to this broken young spirit, everyone she encounters has something to hide.
Dori also has a few secrets of her own that she’s hoping never to tell Gavin … even if holding onto them could destroy the best thing that’s ever happened to her.
