Ophelia is a librarian. She lives in the small town her grandmother Abby lives in. Ophelia has the hereditary gifts of her family, some psychic powers. She avoids touching people because she can find things out about them and she's uncomfortable with all that. Her grandmother is happy with her skills, and wants Ophelia to embrace hers. Ophelia still feels guilt for not saving a friend from death. A mysterious stranger turns up in her library asking questions and she's curious about him and his motives. When they both happen on a dead body things start getting more complicated and in order to solve what's happening she has to embrace her gifts. Not a bad read, in fact quite fun. The scenes in the library were quite realistic. A nice cozy mystery.
