This was a fun little read. I felt the author did a little more telling than showing in the introductory chapters. Sometimes authors feel they have to quickly bring new readers in a series up to speed on the characters. This is book number four in this series. I hadn’t read any of the others, but their titles intrigue me: 1) Tempest in the Tea Leaves, 2) Corpse in the Crystal Ball, and 3) Trouble in the Tarot. I think all books in a series build on each other, but you could read this book as a standalone and not be lost.
The book description on Amazon and elsewhere let the cat out of the bag, who befalls tragedy and who initially gets blamed. So I was looking forward to seeing about Sunny Meadow’s clairvoyant abilities, how they worked and how she used them in catching a killer. Could it be too easy to read everyone’s future? Can you see your own future as a fortune teller?
There’s quite a bit about couple’s relationships in this book. The characters are interesting and fun to be around. If you enjoy cozy mysteries, these may be a new author to try.
