Overview

I'm just the messenger. Please, don't kill me. . .

Don't hate me because I'm psychic. . .everybody else already does. My name's Clair Ivers and these days my "gift" seems more like a booby prize. It all started when this crazy woman tried to bribe me into skewing a reading to warm her future sister-in-law's cold feet. Then the prospective sister-in-law threatened to kill herself at the altar if I didn't give her a phony reading saying she should break off the engagement. Oh, and did I mention she ran out, leaving her three-carat rock of a ring right there on my table?

So what's an honest woman to do? Find the man who belongs to the ring, of course. And boy, have I found him. The minute I lay eyes on Jack Heron, I know he's the one. . .for me, that is. The problem is making him realize it once he finds out that I may be responsible for the flight of his fiancée. At least his grandmother likes me. Of course she thinks I'm someone else. And then there's the best man who keeps calling me for dates. . .and stock tips.

Between the people who think I'm someone else, the people who wish I were, and the people who just want a bead on the winning Powerball numbers, I'm seriously considering packing in my deck for good. But not until I throw caution to the wind and make a play for my very own Jack of Hearts. . .

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly

Carter's second novel (after She'll Take It) follows a thrice-divorced tarot card reader possessed of questionable psychic prowess who is drawn into the strange dealings of a wealthy family. Despite three failed marriages, 32-year-old Clair Ivars is still "in love with love," so she's not exactly thrilled about her first encounter with Rachel Morgan, a manic bride-to-be who bullies Clair into predicting a miserable married future. Rachel leaves her three-carat diamond engagement ring with Clair, along with instructions to return the pricey piece to the groom-to-be, wine and vodka mogul Jack Heron. Hilarity and mishaps ensue as Clair travels to the Heron Estate and meets Jack and his family. While pretending to be Jack's fiancée (to please Jack's grandmother and a group of investors), Clair finds secrets in every corner of the mansion and meets her dream beau. The sitcom-caliber humor hits its mark, and the trove of mini-mysteries will keep readers guessing. (Mar.)

    Clair is a Tarot reader who stumbles into a rich family's drama.

    Clair is a Tarot reader who stumbles into a rich family's drama. She is a bit stupid, and has been married three times at 32. The love triangle between Jack and Mike was interesting, but it's obvious what the ending would be, and I'm  not psychic.

    Delightful

    Psychic Clair Ivers hates her gift as people classify her as a kook, a con, or a conduit with few belonging to the last category. Her current client offers to pay Clair a sizable sum of money if she would provide a false reading to her future sister-in-law Rachel Morgan that would send the superstitious bride into the night. When Clair refuses, her extortionist vows to commit hari kari when the preacher asks the question of the audience if anyone takes exception.------------------ Her reading sends the bride away in panic with her engagement ring left behind. Clair returns the jewelry to its owner, the groom Jack Heron, who to her shock, especially after several failed marriages, is her Jack of her Hearts. Not sure what to do he provides her the time and opportunity she needs to prove they are soulmates. He surprises himself 4when he drafts her as his pretend fiancée for the sake of his grandma and some investors. However, she also fears he will never speak to her again once she tells him the truth that her reading broke his engagement.----------------------- Putting that classic TV show Occasional Wife aside, this is an amusing contemporary fantasy romance starring a likable psychic and her Jack of Hearts. The amusing story line focuses on Clair¿s pratfalls as her skill fails to warn her when she needs it most. Readers will appreciate this funny lighthearted tale of the psychic who found love.-------------- Harriet Klausner
