Cass Donovan gave up her psychiatric practice to move to Bay Island, where she opened a psychic shop, Mystical Musings, intent on helping others. Although Cass believes she’s not psychic in the traditional sense, she is intuitive and her experience as a psychiatrist helps her “read” people. Cass is strong and cares deeply about people. Yes, she has periods of self-doubt, especially lately. She’s been having recurrent dreams where she sees a woman’s face and hears a plea for help.

After Artie Becker enters her shop and asks Cass to help find his missing daughter, Kelly, Cass wonders if the woman of her dreams and Kelly are the same. Cass later sees Artie leaving a gallery and is stunned to see a portrait of the woman from her dreams inside the shop. She walks inside and learns that the gallery owner and artist, Leighton Mills, painted the portrait.

Cass walks her dog Beast along the beach and he finds a bone, then leads her to a body. Cass calls the police and, after her two best friends, Stephanie Lawrence and Bee Maxwell arrive, explain what happened. Bee accompanies Cass to the gallery shop and, while Bee keeps Leighton busy discussing a possible painting for his dress shop, Cass surreptitiously searches for the portrait and finds it partially painted over. Why would Leighton try to hide the portrait? What’s the connection between Leighton and Artie? And could the body on the beach be that of Artie’s missing daughter?

Clairvoyant and Present Danger possesses what I love the most in a great cozy: characters that I care about and miss when I’ve finished the last page, a promising romance, and a story that blends the psychic realm and an intriguing murder to provide an engrossing, fast paced plot that kept me glued to the pages.
