    Corpse in the Crystal Ball By Kari Lee Townsend Copyright June



    Corpse in the Crystal Ball
    By Kari Lee Townsend
    Copyright June 2012
    Publisher: Berkeley Prime Crime

    After clearing her name as the prime suspect in a murder, Sunny Meadows hopes she can finally enjoy some serenity in the idyllic town of Divinity in upstate New York. She’d also like a second chance with Detective Mitch Stone. But when Mitch’s gorgeous ex-girlfriend Isabel Gonzales shows up, Sunny’s not sure she can compete. Then Isabel mysteriously disappears.

    When the police turn to Sunny for help, her visions lead to the discovery of Isabel’s corpse in the woods. Before she died, Isabel scrawled in the dirt a message implicating Mitch in her murder. Now Sunny must help the man she’s falling in love with as she sets out to find the real killer. But this time Sunny’s clairvoyant abilities might not save her–as what she doesn’t see can hurt her…

    Sunny is not in the mood to have a discussion about her on hold love life with her friend Joanne (Jo). She is not going to discuss the detective who she put on hold, and just wants to move on with her life. She is no longer a suspect in a murder investigation and her business is picking up. Her parents are not going to be in her face until the next holiday. She and Jo are heading back to Sunny’s house in her old VW Bug and as they turn onto Shadow Lane and pull onto her driveway they see the new mailman Kevin Brown fighting with a little old lady…. Who turns out to be Sunny’s Granma Gertrude.
    From that point on Sunny’s life is about to change once again. Whether for good or bad is yet to be determined. Gertrude loves Sunny as she is and for who she is (unlike Sunny’s parents). After breaking up the fight and discovering that it was caused by Kevin not letting Gertrude accept Sunny’s mail things get a bit quieter. This is also the beginning of another murder that will drag Sunny, her grandmother, and her best friend into.
    This is the second book in the Fortune Teller Mystery series and book two is going to set the mark for all future stories in the series. This one comes with new hot guys, dead people, Detective Grumpy and his ex, and a cast of characters that will entertain and enthrall you with their antics. I wholly recommend it to all lovers of cozy mysteries and lovers of paranormal reading.
    FTC Full Disclosure: I received this book from the author in return for a hair and honest review.

    The second book in this series, Kari has written a well crafted

    The second book in this series, Kari has written a well crafted cozy mystery that can keep anybody company when called upon. Sunny Meadows is back and her business is thriving, but her love life is more complicated than ever. While trying to sort out her feelings for Detective Grumpy Pants (AKA detective Mitch stone) Sunny encounters a bout of jealousy as an old girlfriend comes back into the picture- Isabel Gonzales.

    Just when she decides that it's not worth persuing, Isabel comes to her for help. One crystal ball reading later and Isabel flees, only to
    disappear and then turn up dead later. The suspect? Detective Mitch stone.

    Add in a twin and a hot looking mailman and you have the makings of one big suspect stew. Kari keeps the action and the development flowing as we race along with Sunny to the answer. Bonus points for the offbeat characters like poor Morty, who still insists on being the top cat around the house and still manages to get into trouble despite a visit by Sunny's Granny Gert. I was also left rolling in the floor with Granny Gert's antics while learning to drive.

    Overall it is a very worthy read, and also worth backtracking to read the first entry in this series, Tempest in the Tea Leaves.

    Kari Lee Townsend has done it again, with her follow-up mystery

    Kari Lee Townsend has done it again, with her follow-up mystery to Tempest in the Tea Leaves. Her perky but much put-upon fortune-teller Sunny Meadows is in trouble again-- the more she tries to help, the deeper she gets. This time Sunny isn't the suspected murderer, but her wannabe boy-toy Mitch is, so she naturally comes to the rescue, despite misunderstandings and hurt feelings.

    To add to her troubles, Sunny has to cope with her well-meaning but intrusive, cookie-baking grandma, who's also a driving menace. A white-knuckled Sunny risks her life (and car) to try and teach grannie enough to pass her driving test.

    With a cast of quirky characters, many of whom have something to hide, Sunny works her magic among the denizens of Divinity, hunting a killer before someone else becomes a victim.

    Come fall for the charm of this mystery line, and follow Sunny's twisted trail as she follows the clues to uncover a terrible crime.
