San Francisco, March 1943
Sarah Bennett harbors two secrets: She sees ghosts, and she’s in love with a spy.

Meanwhile, as Sarah struggles to cope with the relentless

This was one heck of a different book, way different from what I normally read. Set in the 1940s, the story had an older Gothic era feel to it. Sarah Bennett could see ghosts after a fall and she was in love with Zeke. Offered a job by Dr. Geisler, she soon got embroiled in a mystery surrounding one of the residents of the hospital Minna.

This was book 2 in the series by Terry Lynn Thomas, and it had references to her past life and the drama it curtailed. But it was easy to follow. The story use

A mystery, a ghost, romance and a wartime setting...what could be more perfect?! I love this character we first met in The Spirit of Grace. Sarah Bennett is quietly confident and becoming more comfortable with her psychic abilities. I am looking forward to the third book.

She meets with Dr. Matthew Geisler who promises her to assist with her paranormal ability to connect with spirits. However, once an attempt on Geisler's like is taken, everything in the story shifts. Sarah must now understand and identify the one who attempted murder and distinguish the roles of both the living and the dead.

Weeping in the Wings was a suspense filled, couldn't put it down kind of book! Following her father's acquital, Sarah, the key witness against him, finds a job with a doctor she thinks might be able to help her with a unique ability as well as keep a low profile. The mini hospital is filled with a cast of characters including her lost love. With danger looming, she is able to connect with the other side and find out who is behind the attempts on the doctor's life. I love the way the author was a ...more

Sarah is seeking a new life so she can escape the nightmare of her trial against her adoptive father. In addition to the trial nightmare, Sarah has started hearing someone weeping but no one is around, making Sarah feel as she is going to go crazy. She takes a typist job working for Dr. Matthew Geisler to hide her away from society and to make some money so she can move away from her past. The job includes room and board so this sounds fantastic because believes this is her only option for a bet ...more

This is the second in a trilogy and I hadn't read the first book, but that did not matter, as any events in the first book were sufficiently explained. I enjoyed the setting, and the characters were well written, even the more minor ones. I never saw the twist at the end coming. I look forward to reading the next in the series.

Interesting book with mystery and a bit of the paranormal. I had a strong sense of whodunit early on but the journey to confirmation was satisfying. The slice of life during the early years of WW2 was interesting and the author's portrayal of San Francisco in that time period was very good. I enjoyed the book. I would like to read more of Sarah's adventures.

WEEPING IN THE WINGS is the enjoyable follow up to SPIRIT OF GRACE. Ghosts, spies, and attempted murder combine to make a compelling read by Terry Lynn Thomas.

I really liked the first book in the Sarah Bennett series so had high expectations for WEEPING IN THE WINGS. I was not disappointed, but it felt much different from SPIRIT OF GRACE. The story picks up shortly after the events of SPIRIT, and Sarah finds herself somewhat of a pariah. Though scarred by past experie

Sarah Bennett is back in this thrilling installation of the Sarah Bennett Mysteries.

After the fallout from the previous book, Sarah is striving to keep it together. Her paranormal abilities have seemed to become stronger in this story and it’s apparent that all she wants to do is live a normal life. However, trouble seems to follow her wherever she goes and she finds herself working for a doctor with an interest in the paranormal.

I love mysteries. Throw in a couple of ghosts and it makes for

Sarah Bennett is alone and friendless after being vilified and made afraid to appear in public. She needs a job and a safe place to live. She knows she can support herself, if someone will just give her a chance. You can't help but worry about Sarah. She has been through so much. You will definitely want to read book one 'The Spirit of Grace' and keep up with this series.

Her father is out of her life, and the love of her life abandoned her when she needed him most. She is not sure she can make

Sarah Bennett sees ghosts and one that has attached itself to her weeps constantly. It began when she heard the verdict of not guilty as pertains to her adoptive father who had committed murder.

I was lucky enough to read an ARC copy of this book.

My thoughts - I enjoyed it. I thought the story was interesting and quite unusual. I've not read another like it.

It took me a couple of chapters to really get into the story but once I did I found it very engaging and I quickly got to the point of wanting to know what happens, and wanting the story to progress. Although I had already read book one in the series and therefore had an inkling of how the story might carry on I was surprised as it w

Set in San Francisco 1943, Sarah Bennett Takes is no ordinary woman, she sees ghosts. She is dealing with a weeping ghost who won't leave Sarah be. And add to it Zeke the man who left her comes back into her life.

Not only is Sarah back, but so is Zeke, the one man Sarah is in love with.
Sarah is slowly healing and trying to understand her gift. She sees ghosts and it terrifies her. Sarah is offered sanctuary with Dr. Matthew Geisler, who offers to help her understand why she sees ghosts and most importantly, why has this particular ghost, a woman who weeps constantly, has attached herself to Sarah.

Part mystery, part ghost story, Weeping in the Wings is an intriguing story that will keep you turning pages as the pieces of the puzzle fit together. Sarah Bennett is reeling from the fallout of her father's trial; a trial in which she testified against him, and is now facing public hostility. She is offered a job by a doctor who is interested in the occult, and his dead sister has attached herself to Sarah. Now strange occurrences are happening all around Sarah and the other people living in t ...more

I was impressed at how well-written this book is! The cover is absolutely stunning, and I found myself returning to look at it when reading the scenes where Sarah was working in her small room. Terry Lynn Thomas has woven into this story history about the Influenza Pandemic during 1918-1919, women's place in the work force during WW II, as well as talking about the astigmatism of mental illness and the tragedies of war.

I really enjoyed these two books, The Spirit of Grace & Weeping in the Wings. They kept me guessing about what would happen next and which character was the villain. A murder mystery, ghost story and treason during WW1. Not to mention what it was like to live during that time when you had to deal with rations.

I read this book straight after the first in the series as I enjoyed it so much, this didn't disappoint as the characters and plots unfold. A fabulous page turning, mildly paranormal whodunnit. Looking forward to book 3
