From Joy Elaine Zaleski, author of "Heartful Obligations," comes "Her Bed Has Been Shaking Again…," a dark yet saccharine work of fiction that cleverly melds elements of mystery and romance. At the heart of this story are two senior characters who meet under very strange circumstances. They put their heads together to try to find the man’s missing wife and, in their quest, come upon a 40-year unsolved murder case of her parents.

At the heart of this novel is Sylvia, a woman convinced that she possesses senses beyond human ken. She believes she is a bit psychic. She "hears" identifiable sounds, detects strange odors, feels her bed shaking in the night, and at times, she feels that someone was sitting on the corner of her bed. She has profound insights and, at times, seems able to read people’s minds. Now, if she could just find a use for her uncanny talent.

As fate would allow, a stranger comes crashing into Sylvia’s condo, absolutely terrifying her but ultimately adding a combination of mystery and romance to her quiet life. Maybe she could help find a missing wife or solve a couple of old murders.

Set against the backdrop of Florida, New York, and Ireland, readers will have trouble putting down this imposing work of fiction as they follow the plight of these two characters bound to find new and interesting profound discoveries in the real world and within their hearts. A page-turner that touches on the struggles of the senior population as well as young newlyweds, "Her Bed Has Been Shaking Again…" is as beautiful as it is dark.
