“The thing about secrets is, they’re corrosive.” - Brenda Lyne. The Thirteenth Cabin: A Raegan O’Rouke Mystery is a thrilling paranormal novel by Brenda Lyne. Raegan O'Rouke is known for her excellent investigative, news-worthy articles. What she doesn’t reveal is her inherited psychic ability to see into the past and her fondness for Chardonnay wine. When her neighbors' vacation cabin is destroyed by fire, Raegan’s investigative skills kick in deeper after seeing a vision of the burned cabin and hearing about teens who went missing years ago. However, some of the residents of the small tourist town distrust her motives and don’t want her to stir up the past. She’s also worried about the vengeful Faust family that has been trying to harm the Ainsley women for generations.
“Trust the vibes you get. Energy doesn’t lie.” Raegan O’Rourke is definitely a terrific investigative reporter who usually listens to her instincts when working and it serves her well. It’s a pity she doesn’t always do that in her personal life, although she acknowledges that she has a drinking problem. I’m an admirer of this protagonist who takes journalism seriously and is protective of those she cares about. Many of the characters were fascinating and I found The Thirteenth Cabin unputdownable. Brenda Lyne’s storytelling is strong and captivating. She entwines the various cases with Raegan's personal issues so effectively that I could easily understand everything without losing track. I felt sad reading some parts, but also gained a better comprehension of paranormal powers. The Raegan O’Rouke Mystery series is now on my reading list.
