After the sudden loss of her husband, Joe, Nora Cooper makes a startling discovery: shortly before his death, Joe secretly sold their newly purchased dream home on Martha’s Vineyard, where the couple had planned to retire.
Nora doesn’t know what to think. As she searches for answers, she is tormented by grief and doubt—until she starts receiving mysterious and inexplicable messages in Scrabble letters, messages that Nora believes could have been written only by Joe.
Using a strength she didn’t know she had, Nora follows these strange clues to discover the truth about Joe and their life together—and navigates the danger inherent in her new, special gift.
“I do not want to go into too much detail on what happens in this book but it is filled with romance, secrets, betrayals, and messages from the dead. I loved it and read it in a few hours because I could not put it down.” ~Linda Tonis for Paranormal Romance Guild
“Words in the Dark (Nora Cooper Mysteries), by Giulia Beyman, is a suspenseful, page-turning novel… I neglected my chores today to finish reading Words in the Dark. I was so sure I had figured out the killer several times, but didn’t see the ending coming. This is a really good book. Giulia Beyman has given us Nora: a mother, grandmother, working lady, and amateur detective. This is the first of the Cooper mysteries I have read, but it certainly will not be the last. I would not be at all surprised to see this as a movie or a network weekly series. The characters quickly became my friends and I can’t wait to visit with them again.” ~Trudi LoPreto for Readers’ Favorite
