Corey is Layna's partner, her soulmate, and her senser. So, why is she keeping secrets from him?Aspiring singer/songwriter Layna Wood didn't just inherit musical talent from her absent father - she's also inherited the abilities of a seer; able to connect with and sense the universe at a far deeper level than most.
But as Layna's ability grows, so too does the pressure to keep her talents secret; especially as she gains the ability to sense things even her mentor, Marjory, never warned her about - things like ghosts.
She soon learns that dead men DO tell tales - but how can Layna explain the things she discovers to her lover, Corey? He's a no-nonsense, by-the-book law-officer who most definitely doesn't believe in ghosts.
But the longer Layna keeps her secrets, the more of the truth she uncovers threatens to put her and her family in danger; and soon Layna has to choose between communing with ghosts, or running the risk of becoming one herself.
