Two sisters are completely different Tennesee Claflin is a spiritualist. Now I’m generally interested in the spiritual world, I used to like listening to Sally Morgan who connects with the spirit world and I used to love watching Tyler Henry on TV visiting the rich and famous homes and drawing things that he was drawn too from the spirit world about their families.
So as I love the spiritual world my favourite part of the story was
Tennessee Claflin is astonishing with her extraordinary clairvoyant powers. She is visited daily by many people who are anxious or need to convince themselves of her supernatural powers. Tennessee can remarkable gives out information to people who requested them and answers all their questions with accuracy.
To test her supernatural claims many people have asked her the question, how much money have I in my pocket, and in all cases Tennessee gives them the correct answer.
this is a story that’s buzzing with sisters Tennessee and Victoria who are completely different leading total different lifestyles.
I would like to thank Kelly st love books group for arranging for this book to be sent to me and for inviting me to take part in the blog tour.
