Angel Baby is the second book in the Raegan O'Rourke Mysteries by Brenda Lyne. Raegan rushes to Ainsley Manor, hoping to save her father Liam O'Rourke from dying at the hands of the Faust family. Edison and Morgan Faust were desperate to get their hands on buried gold and need Liam's wife Grace to find it. The Ainsley women have a unique gift of seeing the past of any person or thing with just one touch, but Grace can also see the future. After foiling the murder attempt, Raegan meets Officer Jesse Hendricks at the scene. She sees the name Mia carved into a post and learns about a young woman and her newborn baby who had vanished eleven years before. The cold case is reopened, with Raegan and Jesse leading the investigation, to finally uncover what happened to new mother Mia and her infant baby who had disappeared without a trace. Little does Raegan realize that the man she is in love with is the prime suspect.
Brenda Lyne has written a series that contains a touch of the paranormal, and Angel Baby blends mystery, romance, suspense, and sleuthing which bring one surprise after the next. When I first came across this book I pictured in my mind a tale from the fifties, the likes of Grease, but was stopped cold when I realized what the title referred to. Raegan finds herself at odds with her emotions as she and Jesse remove layer after layer of this heartbreaking mystery, entwined with her past, and bringing the man she loves to the forefront of the investigation. The struggle Raegan has in pushing aside her hurt and anger was the hardest part of getting to the truth. The book evoked many emotions of my own. I loved the writing style in this second installment and look forward to reading more of this incredible tale. I recommend it highly to those who enjoy their mysteries wrapped around a good dose of the paranormal.
