Once a childhood TV star, now a tarot reader in the town of Hillvale—home of 325 people and countless ghosts—Amber Abercrombie is content now that she’s escaped the horror of her stage mother and the constant pressure to kill herself with dieting. Then her former teen-idol lover crashes into her tranquility, bringing with him the Death card.

Now a Hollywood director, Josh Gabriel is on the brink of a marriage of convenience when his wealthy bride-to-be, the producer of his next film, is murdered. Finding Amber—the woman who deserted him once, leaving him devastated—is both blessing and curse now that his whole world is crumbling again.

With corrupt power brokers from their past and an angry poltergeist from the present threatening to tear apart their lives, Josh and Amber must set aside their differences and rely on each other to find a killer. This time, they must trust their abilities enough to find justice—and risk a second chance of love.

Theatrical Drama. Murder comes again to Hillvale and the case is only solved with the help of the town’s Lucys (lucent ladies) and the angry spirit of the murder victim. I have read all the stories in this series to date and I have to say that this was my favourite. I loved the character of Amber and how she rose to every challenge thrown at her and it was great to see her reconnecting with Josh after fourteen years apart. I am sure that readers could enjoy this book without having read any of the previous stories. All the ends are neatly tied away and supporting characters are not too numerous to keep straight in your head. I voluntarily read and reviewed an advanced copy of this book from the author. All thoughts and opinions are my own.

I really like this series and am glad to get a more in depth look into the character's lives. Why they are in HIllvale and what brought them there. Amber has been hiding away for a lot of years and is content to stay hidden away. But, when an old friend comes into town and brings lots of change with him, she isn't very happy about it. Maybe it is about time for some change. She has missed Josh all this time, but she can't go back to her old life. Can she even dream of a second chance?

Amber Affairs is a terrific continuation of Patricia Rice's series set in modern day in Hillvale, CA. This particular story centers on Amber, the resident Tarot reader and Josh. Amber and Josh knew each other as children in Hollywood. As always, Patricia develops the characters exceptionally well. We learn more of Amber and meet Josh. She deals with heavy topics such as child abuse and body image. I never like to say too much in a review so I don't give away any plot developments. I wish she would have spent more time on Amber's talent, but the story is terrific. My advice is to read the series from the beginning because characters from previous books play important roles here. I also advise reading her other Malcolm/Ives series. I received an ARC for my honest review.

Amber Affairs is the 6th book in Patricia Rice’s Crystal Magic Series. We revisit Amber Abercrombie, a former child star, gift store owner, tarot card reader and doting aunt. She came to Hilldale to hide in plain sight in order to forget her past and to create a new normal. This story introduces Josh Gabriel who was her co-star in the series “Jack and Ginger,” a blast from the past Amber had hoped to avoid. Josh shows up in Hilldale to plan his marriage of convenience to Willa Powell, Hollywood royalty. She is a producer with the money and Josh is a fantasy director. When Willa is murdered and becomes a challenging but entertaining ghost, the town gets together to help her find her peace and cross over. Josh stays in Hillvale to find the culprit and, in the process, rekindles his relationship with Amber, helping her by helping her take care of her nephew, Zeke. This story touches on the horrors of pedophilia, body-shaming, dysfunctional parents and the dark side of the “beautiful life” in Hollywood. I appreciate that Pat is not afraid to touch on some of the ills of society. The supportive aspect of the Hilldale community and the blessing of friendship flows through the entire book. I recommend this story if you enjoy romance and mystery mixed with a bit of the paranormal, and most importantly, a happy ending

Amber Affairs by Patricia Rice Crystal Magic #6 I do love Hillvale, California and wish I could go visit sometime! This town has great characters, a small town feel, friends that are there for one another and...MAGIC. Amber Abercrombie runs a shop in town that sells crystals, tarot cards and other new age items. She reads the Tarot for clients and has a good life filled with friend. When Josh Garbriel walks into her shop it is a blast to the past when he recognizes her as the child star he worked beside, became friends and then lovers with over a decade ago. With Josh engaged and having his wedding soon in Hillvale there is no chance for more than catching up but when Fiance Willa ends up dead...well the story really heats up. Josh can’t rest till he knows who killed Willa and though their marriage was more one of convenience and PR than true love there was affection and he wants to KNOW who the murderer is and why Willa was murdered. Josh and Amber begin to fall into their old friendship patterns – although – as adults there might be more...maybe? Throw in Amber’s nephew, Zeke, who wants to come stay with her for the summer, the Lucy contingent with their special abilities, evil from more than one person and the potential for romance and the story had me flipping pages rapidly to find out if Josh and Amber would get their happily ever after...and who the murderer was. Did I enjoy this book? Yes Would I read more in this series? Definitely Thank you to the author for the ARC – This is my honest review. 5 Stars

What an enticingly lovely second-chance romance! This exhilarating addition to the Crystal Magic series has it all – romance, murder, mayhem, angry ghosts, possessions, and perverted Hollywood moguls. What more could you ask for in the small town of Hillvale, California? I am thinking this might be my favorite book in the series – but, I think I say that with each new release. What can I say – I love the series. See the rest of my review here:
