"well-told mystery sequel to BLUE MOON"

BREAKING THE CHAIN is a well-told mystery story, the sequel to BLUE MOON. The main characters from the first book are back, Mary and Jack Windom, now married, and still estate surveyors working for different companies. But in addition they now run a bed and breakfast, The Blue Moon Inn, in the old plantation house. As with the first book, dreams are involved, but this time it is Jack who has the nightmares.

Many of the minor characters from the first book are back, quirky as ever, helping Jack and Mary to solve this new mystery. Who is the "brown man" and what involvement does he have with the plantation and the old escaped slave tunnel leading out of the storage shed? And what does Aunt Elizavon know about Mary's gift of finding missing objects?

Having enjoyed BLUE MOON, I was delighted to find BREAKING THE CHAIN to be the sequel book. Again the pace was fast, the twists in the tale a delight to read. Now that the main characters are married to each other, it was less of a romance, but it's nice to see a couple living together, working out their differences, and loving each other. I recommend BREAKING THE CHAIN as much as I did BLUE MOON.

SUMMARY

Some paths are destined to cross again...

You would think that after helping a ghost find peace by solving a hundred-year-old mystery and thwarting a murderess' plans, Mary Corbett's life as an estate curator would settle back into a normal routine. Well, one can always wish...

At the moment, things couldn't be better. Not only is she married to her beloved Jack, but her dream of owning a bed and breakfast has come true, thanks to the help of her very rich, but snotty Aunt Elizavon. Now that the Blue Moon Inn is open, there's just one thing left for Mary to do—invite Sadie and Justine, the two elderly women who served as the plantation's former housekeepers, back for a visit.

What Mary doesn't know is that Sadie, the elderly Voodoo priestess who predicted the series of events that brought Mary and Jack together, is also searching for her. But Sadie's reasons are much more pressing—she's started having visions again, and this time they're worse than before.

After Sadie arrives, Mary starts having ESP flashes of her own. Why is she seeing ghosts again, and how is her life tied to the "brown man" that Sadie's so afraid of? What kind of trouble is he destined to bring, and worse yet, how does Sadie know he's going to visit the inn?
