Haunting Violet by Alyxandra Harvey
Violet Willoughby’s life would be so much simpler is she weren’t the daughter of a fraudulent spiritualist. For sixteen years, she’s been forced to take part in the trickery her mother calls a séance, when she’d much rather spend her time reading. To say the least, Violet’s had her fill of spirits and the spirit world.
So when Violet and her mother are invited to Lord Jasper’s country home to provide a weekend full of parlor entertainment, she is far from thrilled. She expects nothing less than the usual: her mother flirting with men too young for her, drinking way too much champagne, and of course being forced to take part in the charade.
But when Violet starts seeing a beautiful but dead girl, little by little she starts to believe in the world she’s resisted for so long. But Violet isn’t planning on following in her mother’s footsteps. No, she’s planning on solving the mystery Rowena’s death.
