But after a devastating injury that puts her career on the line, Dori isn't sure if she made the right decision purchasing this rundown old mansion. Her wisecracking Grammy Cena has waited too long for her independent granddaughter to return home. She hires a a kooky psychic to banish the ghost and a handsome contractor with whom Dori has an unhappy past. With a promise to Vicente, Dori may solve a forgotten Prohibition era murder.

The ending might have been my favorite. One of my favorite mystery reads of the year, and one to get your to-read list!" - Samantha March, Chick Lit Plus 4.5 Lightning Bolts "Lost In The Light is an enchanting story that takes the reader from present to the past. Full of mystery, emotion, and a plot that keeps the readers on their toes, I couldn't peel my eyes away. Ms. Castillo, you've got a new fan. I can't wait for more!" - Storm Goddess Book Reviews Four stars "I haven't read a mystery novel in quite some time. This one definitely reminded me of why I enjoy them so much. Lost in the Light is an enjoyable story that flips between the Prohibition in the 1920's/1930's and the present. And who doesn't love a good ghost story! Ghost shows up in your house, haunts you, asks you for favors and basically tells you what to do constantly... gotta love it!" - Lost in Literature "The story is a page turner with old flames, sexy ghosts, family obligations that we all contend with, humor, and bonds with new female friends." - Sandra Ramos O'Briant Four stars "I think that the author weaves a fantastic tale through both worlds and we kind of see Dori evolve and grow through her experience and even able to allow her self to depend on others. I think this book is definitely worth picking up if you like a good historical mystery, with a touch of paranormal and a dash of romance. I will have to check out more of Ms. Castillo's novels in the future." - Ramblings of a Semi Housewife "Mary Castillo has written such a rich and compelling novel...I was pretty much glued to this book. To say I was behind Dori the whole way is an understatement. I love her!" - Whoopeeyoo! Reviews
