Murder and an Irish Curse By Melissa Bourbon: Review/Giveaway/Guest Post

by Kathleen Costa

Pippin is busy making her Sea Captain’s Inn a friendly destination, a feat the local paper was kind to highlight. So, why is local reporter, Moria O’Quinn, wanting to do another story about Pippin and the Inn? Well, she doesn’t and isn’t. She has become quite a nuisance, even insinuating Pippin may be a witch. She says she’s heard rumors of Pippin’s bibliomancy, somewhat unlikely, and knows much more than she should about the gift, which is suspicious, and Pippin is finding it difficult to maintain an evasive attitude.

All books tell stories, but some people are able to read more than just the words on the pages. As young Pippin Hawthorne will soon learn, her family has been both gifted and cursed to be bibliomancers, ancient practicers who foretell the future and truths through messages hidden within book passages. Pippin knows nothing of this when she and her twin brother return to Devil’s Cove, though, as they have only come to the island off of North Carolina’s Outer Banks to settle their inheritance of their late grandmother’s falling down beach house.

Jack has suggested Marnie Haskell engage Camacho and Associates, specifically recommending Lola, to investigate the issues surrounding the tragic death of her son Philip. Jack’s mother is a friend of Marnie’s, and he knew Philip growing up. Phil had been found having hung himself, and authorities determined his death, of course, to be a suicide, but Marnie knew her son wouldn’t kill himself.
