Product description

Product Description

A mysterious parcel. An unsolved crime. A spell from beyond the grave.

After returning from her last strange quest, Selkie Moon is more than ready to settle down. So when she receives a parcel from her great grandmother 35 years after her death, opening it seems like such a bad idea.

But curiosity wins and the objects it contains plunge Selkie into long-buried family secrets. Suddenly an old mystery begins to echo with the present and she’s wrapped in a spell that won’t let go: frightening visions, deadly encounters and a pull from the past that she can’t ignore. What happened down by the old stone well in 1896 – and why does it matter to Selkie after more than a hundred years?

Armed with only her wits and psychic twinges that are hardly reliable, Selkie is drawn into a web of cryptic clues that delve deep into the folklore of Ireland where superstition still weaves a powerful – and fatal – spell.

If you love mysteries with lightning pace, twists and turns you never see coming, quirky clues and a sprinkling of the supernatural, then you’ll love The Third Note.

Join Selkie Moon on a quest that will threaten not only her sanity, but her life.

I'm so glad I stumbled across Virginia King's writing just after she completed her first novel. She's a brilliant writer who tells fascinating stories.
Having read all her other books (double-fast and over and over to make sure I hadn't missed anything!) I couldn't wait to read her latest mystery.
The Third Note is all I hoped (well, knew, really) it would be. As it romps from Hawaii to Ireland, land of mists and mystery, layer is added to layer until the truth of an ancient crime is laid bare. Fascinating stuff. I could hardly bear to put it down.
I received a complimentary copy of this book and volunteered to write a review, but it's so good I had to buy it too!
Well done, Virginia! Keep them coming!

5.0 out of 5 stars This author's best yet with the third in the series! Bring on #4! 24 March 2017
By Brenda Telford - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
When Selkie Moon received the parcel from the lawyer’s office, it was seventeen years late. Her great grandmother Bridie had left instructions for Selkie to receive it when she was eighteen but it had been lost among the detritus of the office. She was very tempted not to open it – after all it couldn’t be important, could it, seeing as it was so old?

But open it she did and almost immediately Selkie’s life changed. The various objects the parcel contained thrust Selkie into nightmares and visions of a terrible crime which had been committed around a hundred years prior – one that had never been solved. But Selkie believed she owed it to her great grandmother’s memory to find some answers.

Selkie and her good friend Davina headed from Honolulu to Ireland – Selkie on her mysterious quest and Davina to also find answers from her past. But Ireland’s folklore and superstitions continued to be a presence; Selkie wasn’t welcome. She was shocked at the animosity she felt – and had no idea of the danger she faced; both from the past and from the current day. As the mystery deepened, she wondered if her psychic ability would help her find the answers she sought – or if this would be the end?

The Third Note by Aussie author Virginia King is the third in the Selkie Moon series, and wow! what a ripper of a story. I absolutely loved this episode and think The Third Note might be the author’s best yet! Selkie is a great character and while there’s mention of her sister and step-mother in Australia, and her friends from the previous books, this one takes a new direction with Ireland the main focus. Fabulous! (This is also a series that needs to be read in order, in my opinion. The back story is important) I have no hesitation in recommending The Third Note (and the series) highly.
5.0 out of 5 stars Virginia King weaves a mystical web of suspense, psychic intuition and self-discovery in The Third Note. 7 April 2017
By Kendra - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
"There’s a pattern here—the losing and the finding take me on incredible journeys of discovery. Things I need to know about myself. It’s what happened when I lost my memory and had to travel across the world to get it back. I mustn’t forget what I discovered then: that the answers are in my own heart."

With Selkie now attempting to settle in Hawaii, her great-grandmother Bridie’s much delayed parcel comes as a huge surprise to her. Why did Bridie wait until 35 years after her death to send it to her, and what is the significance of her mysterious gift? While Selkie knows that Bridie was Irish, she doesn’t know why she left Ireland nor why she chose Selkie as the recipient.

When Selkie meets up with her old friend Davina, she asks Selkie to accompany her on a trip to Ireland—Davina’s birthplace. Davina has secrets of her own which need investigating. Selkie figures it’s the perfect opportunity to do some research into her own family history. What she finds will both shock her and have far reaching repercussions.

Exploring the idea that our past affects our present far more than we realise, The Third Note is a chilling, yet thoughtful, page turner with a good dose of humour thrown in to lighten things up.

If you enjoyed the first two books in the Selkie Moon Mystery series, then you’ll love The Third Note. In fact, even if you didn’t read the first two books in the series, chances are you’ll be fascinated enough by book 3 that you’ll want to go back and read them too. Oh yes, and, did I mention there’s a free prequel as well?
5.0 out of 5 stars The Third Note By Virginia King Continues To Captivate With Her Spellbinding Characters! 25 March 2017
By Diana Johnson - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
Faced with only a parcel, delivered 17 years after it's intended delivery and the eerie thoughts that continue to come to the forefront of her mind, Selkie Moon is again pulled, not quite willingly, into a search of a century-old mystery! Compelled to find answers Selkie needs to learn more about her family, what transpired on a dark cold night so many decades ago that is compelling her to find the answers.

Selkie's own amazing blend of humour at times has me laughing, her amazing descriptions of the places she visits leaves me enthralled and the character development just continues to be such an integral part for me as a reader.

And The Mysteries Keep Coming! At times I'm so completely immersed in the incredible amount of information that Virginia King is able to incorporate into her novels. The brilliance of the magical, mystical and folklore further entice me to keep turning the pages!

Definitely a read for those who love mystery/thrillers and the unusual!

I was gifted a copy to read and review as part of Virginia's team of advanced readers. I encourage everyone to sign up for Virginia King's newsletter, an excellent way to continue to journey with Selkie and enjoy current information on the next installment in the Selkie Moon series!
5.0 out of 5 stars Magical! 25 March 2017
By gayle boyce - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
The Third Note is truly magical. Full of mystery, Irish folklore, and family history, the story of Selkie Moon continues. This is probably my favorite of the three, as the characters have developed more, we find out more about Selkie's past and her "abilities", and Selkie finds out more about herself. All of the Selkies' fun and quirky friends from the first two books are there; Davina, Derek, Coral and of course her romantic interest, Alister. If you are love mysteries with a paranormal flavor, you will love the Selkie Moon books.
I received a complimentary copy of this book and volunteered to write this review.
