Dae’s Christmas Past
By Joyce and Jim Lavene
Featuring Pet Psychic Mary Catherine Roberts!
When wild horse rescue director Tom Watts is found dead on Duck Road, psychic mayor Dae O’Donnell is determined to find out who killed him. Her friend, Jake Burleson, is accused of killing Tom even though the two men have been good friends for years.
Dae doesn’t believe Jake killed Tom even though he has been acting strangely. He shoved one of the ancient stone horses found on his property into Dae’s hands when he knew she was afraid what she would see if she touched it. He’s obsessed with stopping the excavation—maybe to the point of killing Tom.
The problem is the excavation of the horse cult that’s been happening on Jake’s property. Tom, and several archaeologists working on the project, argued that Jake should give up his land to widen the search for artifacts. Jake won’t do that.
But Dae thinks there may be more to the story. Jake’s determination to get the horse statue into her hands has shown her what the horse cult was used for a thousand years ago and the destruction the demon horses brought before they were stopped. She’s afraid something of the past may have already returned to the Outer Banks of North Carolina, and there may be more deaths to come.
Christmas is coming, but how much of Duck will be left to enjoy it?
