#27: Trouble in the Tarot - Kari Lee Townsend

(Affiliate link)


Lately Sunny has been experiencing a period of big opportunity: her business in Divinity, New York, is thriving, and Detective Mitch Stone has finally agreed to take Sunny on a date. But thanks to her clairvoyant abilities, Sunny knows better than anyone that life deals out bad cards along with the good.

When Sunny agrees to read tarot cards at the annual Summer Solstice Carnival, she meets her Granny Gert‘s “arch nemesis” Fiona Atwater, and is overcome by a vision of Fiona in a violent argument. Sunny knows trouble is brewing when Granny and Fiona start having squabbles all over town. But the fighting comes to a head when a local baker gets run over by a big white Cadillac—and Granny and Fiona are found at the crime scene.

Sunny knows she should step aside and let Mitch handle the investigating, but she’s not about to ignore her visions and leave her granny’s life in fate’s hands . . .

Review:
I love this series!
This book is another great story about Sunny Meadows. Though I have to tell you, the cat, Morty, steals the show! I'm more intrigued by that cat than anything else. I really want to know his story. He's just so darn mysterious.
While I enjoyed the story, I felt it was more romance than mystery this time around. I was all geared up to read a cozy, but what warmed me was the fire between Sunny and Detective Stone. Along with Jo's upcoming wedding, Abbys' recent wedding, it felt like romance was everywhere. Even the ladies in jail had a strange love triangle going on. I suppose that made it sweeter for the month it was read in.
Another upside, you don't have to read these books in sequence. It can be read as a stand-alone and you won't really miss anything. Each book is a new mystery.


4/5
