Publisher's Summary

Although this is book four in the Psychic Surveys series, and some series elements continue, it can also be read as a standalone. 

It's not wise to linger at the crossroads... 

In a quiet Dorset Village, Old Cross Cottage has stood for centuries, overlooking the place where four roads meet. Marred by tragedy, it's had a series of residents, none of whom have stayed for long. 

Pink and pretty, with a thatched roof, it should be an ideal retreat, but as new owners Rachel and Mark Bell discover, it's anything but. 

Ruby Davis hasn't quite told her partner the truth. She's promised Cash a holiday in the country but she's also promised the Bells that she'll investigate the unrest that haunts this ancient dwelling. Hoping to combine work and pleasure, she soon realizes this is a far more complex case than she had ever imagined. As events take a sinister turn, lives are in jeopardy. If the terrible secrets of Old Cross Cottage are ever to be unearthed, an entire village must dig up its past.

Wow!

I literally counted down the days until "old cross cottage" hit audible and literally within a few hours of it being on I downloaded it. I absolutely adore the characters, especially Ruby, Cash and Jed. The psychic surveys have had me glued and hooked from the very first book, I begin excited to read / listen but when I reach half way I start to feel dread that I am reaching the end of yet another amazing story and journey with the psychic surveys team, feeling lost and craving the next in the series. Shani Struthers is such a talented writer, she hits all the nails on the head, from having lovable characters to the chills down my spine in all the right places. I literally cannot wait for the next book! In fact I love the series so much im going to start all over again from highdown hall, hopefully finishing in time to start the next in the series. Shani I love your work! Please keep the psychic surveys going always. Lea Smith x

Ruby behaving like a spoilt brat

I have listened to all the stories up to this book so I am used to Ruby's behaviour but I ended up fast forwarding sections which were too frustrating with her idiotic behaviour in some of this book. For someone whos job it is to look for spirits and move them on, where her principle tactic is to understand the spirits reasons for being grounded, Ruby doesnt seem to show any ability to think laterally or come up with alternative solutions - as demonstrated in this book perfectly where I saw through the plot well within 1/3rd of the book but all was a surprise to Ruby. I hope the next books are an improvement or this could be my last in this series.

another great read

I couldn't wait to read another book in the series and I wasn't disappointed. Love the characters, the atmosphere and the narration is great. Now I'm off to get the next one.
