Enjoy this small town paranormal cozy mystery series with an amateur sleuth by author Ada Bell.

Aly doesn't believe in psychics. Too bad she just had a vision.
Future scientists don't have visions. Aly's got enough on her plate, with finishing her degree and taking care of her nephew and starting her new job at the antique store while drooling over the owner's gorgeous son. No visions.
Alas, the universe doesn't care what Aly believes. When she turns 21, she starts to feel psychic impressions left on objects. A disorienting power for someone surrounded by antiques. Then cranky customer Earl is killed, and Aly's new boss Olive is the prime suspect. She's also the only person who can help Aly understand her unexpected superpowers. Who hated Earl enough to kill? Police would rather make a quick arrest than investigate, so it's up to Aly to clear Olive's name.
Shady Grove is reeling from the first murder in decades, but no one seems to know anything. If Aly gets her hands on the right object, she might be able to see what happened. Can she learn to control her visions before the killer sets their sights on her?

Welcome to Shady Grove: where science meets seances. Mystic Pieces is the first book in the Shady Grove Psychic Mystery series, which is perfect for readers who like small towns, antiques, supernatural sleuths, and slightly nerdy STEM heroines. Okay, really nerdy heroines. Fans of Stella Bixby, Annabel Chase, Amy Boyles, Lily Harper Hart, and Samantha Silver will definitely all under this small town's spell.

Praise for Mystic Pieces:
"Mystic Pieces is a charming, humorous, and original mystery that weaves a tale of murder and self-discovery with heart, family, and psychic visions." - Reader's Favorite

"This was a solid start to this paranormal cozy mystery series. I had fun reading this one. I liked the inclusion of Aly's psychic powers and how she tried to use them to help solve the mystery. It made sense how she got involved and how she went about figuring out who had done it. And I liked how natural and realistic instead forced some of the coincidences felt. The mystery kept me guessing, although the murderer wasn't too big of a surprise there were some nice twists along the way and I was never quite sure who the murderer was. I liked Aly as a main character and reading about her and her powers. I liked the side characters and how each had their own personality that made it easy to remember. All in all I really enjoyed this book and look forward to the next book in the series!" - Lola's Book Reviews
"A cute and cozy introduction to the quirky and devoted characters, Mystic Pieces is the perfect first installment to the Shady Grove Psychic Mystery Series." - Literary Lioness

    Aluminum prefers to be called Aly. She also prefers to rely on the scientific method, so discovering psychic powers throws off her life plans. Watching her new boss be arrested for murder adds to that chaos and inspires her to search for clues to the real murderer. In so doing, she discovers more about her newfound powers and the small town in which she resides. Will she discover too much and find her own untimely end? The characters, particularly the small town, amused me. The writing was clean and flowed quickly with a little bit of wit to appeal to cozy mystery aficionados and skeptics of psychics.

  • Cozy Mystery Meets Psychic

    A fun read where you’ll quickly become attached to the main character. I found myself wishing I had her gift and also occasionally wishing I could smack her for being so naive but hey, she’s young! Head for the couch, bring a blanket, a cuppa, and enjoy a smoothly written psychic mystery.
  • Awesome books

    I’m looking for a book that isn’t so predictable but this one is good still. I did note. Few typos that were a bit annoying.
  • Was just browsing thru and noticed the name of the author. That is my real name.
