 In Salem, Massachusetts, there are secret everywhere--even in the furniture. . .

When Lee Barrett spots the same style oak bureau she once had as a child on the WICH-TV show, Shopping Salem, she rushes to the antiques shop and buys the piece. Just like the beloved bureau she lost in a fire, this one has secret compartments. It also comes with an intriguing history--it was purchased in an estate sale from a home where a famous local murder took place.

The day after the bureau is delivered, Lee returns to the antiques shop and finds the owner dead. The police suspect the shop owner's unscrupulous business partner, but Lee wonders if the murder is connected to her new furniture. At least part of the answer may be revealed through a mirror in the bureau, tarnished and blackened, allowing Lee to tap into her psychic visions. Using this bureau of investigation, Lee may be able to furnish her policeman beau with the evidence needed to catch the killer--before the next one to be shut

My Review: Look Both Ways by Carol J Perry (A Witch City Mystery#3)

Look Both Ways is the third book in the A Witch City Mysteries but the first one I have read, but not the last.  I have already bought the first book to read soon.

Lee Barrett is the main character.  She lives with her Aunt in an apartment that she is buying furniture for.  She is off for the summer.  Lee's sees vision in shiny black objects.  They can be of past or future.  She lives with a cat that has skills too.

After Lee seeing the same style oak bureau on Shopping Salem on WICH TV show she heads right over to the antique store.  The bureau has six hidden compartments just like old one that burned up. Lee bought it and arranged for it to be delivered that day.
The bureau was owned once by a women who was murdered.  Her son sold the bureau and did not know about the secret compartments.  There was stuff in all six places that was left in it.
Next day Lee decided to go back and buy dishes.  As she was going in a man rushed out and bumped against her.  Lee went in and found the owner dead.

Lee is a witness to someone at the antique and now she is seeing things in her new bureau that were giving hints.

I liked the characters, the plot works, the paranormal works great with Salem,
Massachusetts setting, and it is a clean read.
I would read more books from Carol J. Perry in the future.
I was given this ebook from Net Galley and Kensington to read and in return I agreed to give a honest review and be part Look Both Ways blog tour.
