San Francisco, March 1943

Sarah Bennett harbors two secrets: She sees ghosts, and she’s in love with a spy.

When Sarah takes a job with occult expert Dr. Matthew Geisler, he promises to help her understand the sorrowful spirit that seems to have attached itself to her—a spirit whose incessant weeping only she can hear.

Meanwhile, as Sarah struggles to cope with the relentless weeping, she comes face to face with Zeke, the man who left her six months earlier and is ostensibly convalescing from injuries suffered in an alleged accident. But Zeke has secrets of his own, and Sarah’s love and trust are soon put to the test.

Things take an even darker turn when an attempt is made on Geisler’s life, and Sarah finds herself caught in a struggle between the living and the dead. Unsure who she can trust, she must unlock the mystery of the weeping ghost in order to save Dr. Geisler—and herself—from an unknown enemy.

Sarah Bennett is back in this thrilling installation of the Sarah Bennett Mysteries.

After the fallout from the previous book, Sarah is striving to keep it together. Her paranormal abilities have seemed to become stronger in this story and it’s apparent that all she wants to do is live a normal life. However, trouble seems to follow her wherever she goes and she finds herself working for a doctor with an interest in the paranormal.

I love mysteries. Throw in a couple of ghosts and it makes for an even more interesting read.

As the title suggests, Sarah constantly hears weeping. She tries very hard to subdue her instincts with medication but after a few antics with a ghost, it was futile for her to do so. I loved her interactions with the ghosts. Because of her natural curiosity, Sarah can’t stop herself from investigating and helping those in need; whether they are living or dead.

The storytelling has such a fluidity to it, that the reader can feel the tension building to the climax of the story.

The suspense is rich and the plot from the previous book is carried over for continuation in this one. Her romance with Zeke is tested again, but I can’t help but feel a little anxious for them. What with Zeke’s job and Sarah’s penchant for getting into trouble, that relationship will have a lot of ups and downs. I can’t wait to see where Sarah will end up and who she will have to save in the next book. The characters are all well written and the villains have their moments as well.

I would suggest reading book one in order to get a feel for the storyline.
