Life at the house on Winter Street is abuzz with preparations for Aunt Ibby's 45th high school reunion, and Lee Barrett is happy to pitch in, tracking down addresses and licking envelopes.

When the local police dredge up a vintage sports car containing human remains, Lee is thrilled to be the first reporter on the scene. Once she learns the car is connected to the cold case her boyfriend Pete happens to be working on, her powers of investigation are quickly alerted. But it's her Aunt Ibby's emotional reaction to Lee's TV report that puts her on the case. With the help of O'Ryan, her psychic feline sidekick, she'll have to unravel a tangled past of secrets and promises to stop a killer from making history again . . ."

Lee Barrett, a reporter for Salem’s WICH-TV, and camerawoman Francine are the first to report on what police are doing at a local abandoned granite quarry. When divers find a red Mustang at the bottom, viewing the film footage on the news causes Lee’s beloved Aunt Ibby to drop a platter of cookies. The mystery of how the driver died combines with Aunt Ibby’s high school friends’ efforts to plan their 45-year class reunion, making for a good story.

Characterization is good. The main characters are likeable. And the witchcraft aspect is not overwhelming: Lee does have visions in mirrors and she has a familiar: O’Ryan the cat. Watch when he reproves an insensitive reporter.

This book is Carol Perry's best yet. I think it got better because now she is an investigative reporter rather than a teacher so it is more exciting. I love cold cases anyway and this one is about an old car found in a reservoir from 1974. Author still needs more "magic" in her books, though - there is a lot of looking in mirrors and having visions.
