Patricia V. Davis (patriciavdavis) | 10 comments The Secret Spice Cafe Trilogy of novels are about the adventures of four women: A Vegas cocktail waitress, an Indian herbalist, a British chemistry professor, and an Italian-American widow. They have only one thing in common: each is haunted by a tragedy from her past.

Cynthia, Rohini, Jane, and Angela meet on a food blogging site and bond over recipes. They decide on impulse to open The Secret Spice, an elegant café on the magnificent ocean liner, the RMS Queen Mary, which is a real-life ship, currently a floating hotel in Long Beach, California. Rich in history and tales of supernatural occurrences, the ship hides her own dark secrets.

The women are surrounded by ghosts long before they step aboard, but once they do, nothing is quite what it seems. Not the people they meet, not their brooding chef's mystic recipes, and not the Queen Mary herself. Yet the spirits they encounter help them discover that there's always a chance to live, as long as one is alive.

So cool! I'd love to know more about the little girl who stole your reading glasses. Sounds like something I would do as a child ghost.
