“Lemurian Medium” a Rachel Blackstone Paranormal Mystery
When a friend vanishes into a painting at a posh Santa Fe gallery, Rachel Blackstone travels the astral plane in search of her. What she doesn’t expect, is to land in an ancient civilization, one intent on keeping her–and her unproven powers. Even more frightening; a Mesoamerican deity who enjoys human snacks. But first, she must survive the “Terror of the Threshold.”
Join Rachel and friend Chloe as they band together again to solve the mystery of their missing coworker. Little do they know it will involve the long ago sunken continent of Lemuria (the Atlantis of the Pacific), crystal power, time travel and dragons!
Can Rachel become a successful astral-naut? Or will she be lost forever in the cosmos?
A big thank you to all who support me. That includes Marilyn, Cherie, Joe and #1! And special thanks to readers who have embraced Rachel Blackstone and her adventures.
Review of “Reluctant Medium:” I really enjoyed this book! This book kept me up way too late. I can’t wait for the next one! — Angela Causey
Chloe Valdez does real estate—she does it very well, a multi-million-dollar agent! She and her business partner own the hottest realty company in Santa Fe. Chloe has been married at least a of couple times (we’re not sure), but she kept the last name of Valdez because it helped with sales in New Mexico.
Her heritage is mostly French and she can swear in that language, and a couple of others. Unlike Rachel, Chloe is open to all things New Age and metaphysical. She thinks nothing of consulting soul navigators or psychics. A vegetarian, Chloe tries to introduce Rachel—who could exist only on green chile cheese burritos—to soy-based meals and herbal teas.
“But then I catch her pouring out the tea!” Chloe says in disgust. “Well, at least I persuaded her to practice yoga.”
Now Chloe will be the first to admit that Rachel’s job is more fun than hers—but far less profitable. Whenever Rachel sets up a journalistic stakeout, Chloe has it catered. That’s right, catered! She chooses just the right wine for the occasion.
“You have to have the best wine for each surveillance,” she says. “For instance, if we’re keeping an eye on an Spanish subject, I think we can channel him better if we have a nice Cava, that’s a sparkling wine from the Penedés area. Now Rachel doesn’t care. She once said: ‘I don’t care if it’s Santa Clausan wine from the North Pole area!’ She’s impatient and doesn’t always appreciate the finer things.”
Rachel is sometimes—make that always—annoyed when Chloe is picking out clothing for the stakeout.
“She’s a high-heeled boot girl,” Rachel says, “I always wear shoes I can run in. You never know when you might need to make a quick exit. Who buys clothes for a stakeout? I mean really, who does that?”
But Chloe’s always there for Rachel when she has a quandary, which is much of the time. Chloe keeps three sizes of marijuana joints on hand. The size of the dilemma determines the dimensions of the smoke.
“Most issues are small,” Chloe says, “but you never know when you might need to light up the big guy.”
Despite Rachel’s endless journalistic fact-checking, Chloe’s totally open to any spirits and metaphysical occurrences.
“So why didn’t Chloe get the medium gig?” Rachel asks.
“Because I didn’t try to return the dead!” Chloe says. “But it sure opened a whole new set of adventures. I can’t wait for the next one.”
We hear it has to do with the disappearance of a friend, astral travel and a mysterious Spaniard. It’s entitled Lemurian Medium.
“I’m up for it,” Chloe says. “How about you, Rachel?” Groans.
