This series is set Sedona, Arizona and features Jaye Saylor. She owns Crystal Clear, a crystal and gemstone shop. She feels like she is living a geologist’s dream sharing her knowledge and folklore with all the residents and tourists that come to her shop. When a body is found in her backyard the dream quickly turns into a nightmare. The police decide Jaye and her friend Sierra are ideal suspects. The friends find some unusual help to catch the real killer and prove their innocence. Dollycas’s Thoughts I picked up this book and couldn’t put it down. My finger was flipping through the pages on my Kindle at an amazing pace. Sharon Pape packs her stories with punch, the main mystery and another in the subplot the keeps going into the next installment. Both were marvellous! She also creates fantastic characters like friends Jaye and Sierra. They had met in college. Sierra shocked Jaye when she moved to Sedona but the complete surprise was Jaye following her there. They soon find themselves right at home and in the middle of a murder investigation. The story is filled of the twists and turns you expect in a cozy mystery plus some surprises. I absolutely loved it!! It is time to enter world of crystals and crime with this new cozy series!!

This book I would say was paranormalish. It is for the most part a normal mystery with a very large twist. There is not much about crystals in it so do not expect it. But it is a very good read. I hope that there are many more to come.

Potential...I'll give book 2 a try... Set in Sedona, AZ, Jaye and Sierra have been friends since college and now own their own shops in the tourist-attraction town.  Sierra has a bakery, Jaye sells crystals and such in an area known for vortexes and other paranormal activity.  When the owner of another bakery in town is found in Sierra's yard, both women are on the short list of suspects and feel the need to protect themselves by investigating on their own.  Their friend Daniel, a Navajo, offers to help them with their investigation, as well as helping Jaye figure out her new pet with the assistance of his mother and grandmother. I enjoy Sharon Pape's "Portrait of Crime" mysteries so I looked forward to reading this first entry of her new series.  I have to be honest and say that I didn't enjoy it as much, although the last 1/4 or so pulled me in as it moved to the end.  I usually read a book in 1 or 2 days at the most, often in one day.  This one took me several days as I didn't feel the pull to "read one more chapter" that I get from other books.  I know the first book of a series involves setting up the characters and such, so I will read the next book and see what happens.
