Within the pages of very rare books, some centuries old, lie the secrets of the paranormal. Abby Radwell's unusual psychic talent has made her an expert in such volumes -- and sometimes taken her into dangerous territory. After a deadly incident in the private library of an obsessive collector, Abby receives a blackmail threat, and rumors swirl that an old alchemical text known as The Key has reappeared on the black market. A number of ruthless people are searching for the book. Some believe that Abby can find it for them. Abby wants no part of it. But the pressure mounts after a rare-book dealer dies mysteriously. Convinced that she needs an investigator who can also play bodyguard, Abby hires Sam Coppersmith, an expert in paranormal crystals and amber -- "hot rocks." Passion flares immediately between them, yet neither entirely trusts the other. Both are concealing secrets. Both have their own agendas.Sam concludes that the only way to keep Abby safe is to take her to property owned by his rich and reclusive family -- a compound in the small town of Copper Beach, on a private island. But small towns are no safer than large cities when it comes to dealing with a killer who has paranormal talents, and a blackmailer who will stop at nothing to obtain an ancient alchemical code. . . .

I like this fiction CD. It is a new trilogy series. It builds on the characters introduced in previous trilogies. The main characters in this story are the "Coppersmith Family" (CF). The story is called "Copper Beach" because this is where the family lives. This family started the community; thus, the town was named after them. History prior to this book: The CF had the crystal mine 40 years ago. The mine was a partnership between 3 men from different families. 2 wanted to be very cautious working with the crystals. The third man was too bold and audacious. CF and Quinn (Q) were the cautious persons. There was an explosion in the mine. The crazy third man tried to kill his partners and then get away; but, the killer was killed instead. CF and Q barely escaped alive. The lab book was lost or destroyed. Some of the dangerous crystals were lost - possibly in someone's possession. The killer had a second lab book not encrypted that he left with his lover that others did not know about. This lover was also a teacher at the school where AR was at as a child. The lover’s son grew up to be a scientist. This son got a job at the CF lab as a Dr. This Dr. was trying to get hold of the crystals on the CF island behind a vault. He use a female con artist, Cassidy (C), who become the lover of SC. While SC was out of town, C and the Dr met at SC’s house. When opening the safe did not work, the Dr. killed C. This book: When opening the safe did not work, the Dr. killed C. Then, C hypnotized one of AR’s ex-school students to encrypt a book at a private library. Abby Radwell's (AR) after a deadly incident in the private library of an obsessive collector, Abby receives a blackmail threat, and rumors swirl that an old alchemical text known as The Key has reappeared on the black market. A number of ruthless people are searching for the book. Some believe that Abby can find it for them. Abby wants no part of it. But the pressure mounts after a rare-book dealer dies mysteriously. Convinced that she needs an investigator who can also play bodyguard, Abby hires Sam Coppersmith (SC of CF), an expert in paranormal crystals and amber -- "hot rocks." Passion flares immediately between them, yet neither entirely trusts the other. Both are concealing secrets. Both have their own agendas. Sam concludes that the only way to keep Abby safe is to take her to property owned by his rich and reclusive family -- a compound in the small town of Copper Beach, on a private island. But small towns are no safer than large cities when it comes to dealing with a killer who has paranormal talents, and a blackmailer who will stop at nothing to obtain an ancient alchemical code. Many people are looking for the Lab Book. Some of them possess the dangerous crystals. The CF is working with Abbey (AR) to stay alive. The CF want to hide the book so no can use it to protect human kind. Abbey has the ability to get past the encryptions in para-normal books. Many people are trying to hire or kidnap Abbey to get their hands on the secrets in the Lab Book. One of AR’s long-time friends was murdered by paranormal means to get to her and the book. SC and AR become lovers.
