Oracle Bay attracts everyone who’s a little off, particularly the descendants of the divine vacationers who used to frolic in the quaint seaside town. When a true descendent steps foot in Oracle Bay, their divine powers awaken, they receive a visit from the Psychic Union, and shenanigans ensue.
Sandy Franklin is on the run from her old life and her almost-ex-husband. The promise of cheap rent and a ready-made business, combined with the tarot cards she’d never managed to discard, make settling down to try her hand at divination sound like a reasonable solution.
When Vincent, the man who owns most of the town, shows up to announce he’s selling to stave off his own personal problems, the only thing left for Sandy and the other resident psychics to do is devise a plan to save the town using a combination of their divination skills and a little old-fashioned sleuthing.
The one thing Sandy couldn’t predict was how personal her interest in saving Vincent would get.
This is the first book in the Oracle Bay series by Amy Cissell.
This series is right in my wheelhouse. I am jamming reading how the oracle bay psychics, tarot readers, crystal ball readers, palm readers, etc figure out how to keep their town from being sold out from under them.
When the big ah-ha moment comes in and you realize that Sandy is totally connected to this town in a significant way, then the story really takes off. I feel like this is almost more contemporary love story than anything else. I was just loving every bit of it. Hated Sandy’s ex-Aaron. How she ever fell for him, I’ll never know. Definitely loving the love story between Sandy and Vincent. I heart Oracle Bay and have already started book two.
If you love a good contemporary romance, definitely check this one out.
