Overview

Tiffany Swanson doesn't want to solve murders, she just wants to play poker. Unfortunately, the universe has other ideas.

Tiffany Swanson envisions big pots and big profits on her first day as a professional poker player. What she gets instead is the inside scoop to an unsolved murder. The image of the dead man comes to her in a flash--when she bumps into the victim's brother and picks up his memory of the crime scene. He's in Las Vegas with his buddies, celebrating his last weekend as a bachelor. Except right now he's doing more begging than celebrating as he tries to convince Tiffany to do some amateur sleuthing and help bring his brother's killer to justice.

Tiffany intends to do nothing of the sort. She's not a police detective. She's not a private investigator. She's not even a true-crime aficionado. And she's definitely not telepathic--or so she's desperately trying to tell herself before she becomes another family black sheep like her kooky Vietnamese aunt Tuna. But all evidence indicates otherwise. And if there's a teeny, tiny chance she can help solve this homicide, doesn't she have an obligation to try?

Hijinks and hilarity ensue when Tiffany reluctantly agrees to take on the case. But now she's only got one weekend to figure out "whodunit" before all the suspects flee town--taking their deadly secrets with them.

For fans of cozy mystery series, murder mysteries, Asian women sleuths, psychic and telepathic detectives, and clean fiction set in Las Vegas.

~3.5 STARS~ Murder in the Cards by Paige Sleuth was an enjoyable cozy mystery with paranormal elements! Tiffany Swanson, Tiffy to her family, has a pretty stressful job, and she has had enough. She has decided to quit and become a professional poker player. Needless to say, her parents aren’t pleased, but she is a grown woman capable of making her own decisions. But, before long, this change of occupation will be the least of her concerns. It turns out she might be psychic like her Aunt Tuna, and to top it off, she has a vision of a homicide. Before long, she finds herself mixed up in a dangerous mystery. The characters were some of my favorite kind...quirky and funny. Tiffy’s mother is hilarious, and the relationship she shares with her parents is part of what made the book so enjoyable for me. Tiffy’s Aunt Tuna becomes a pretty important character because that is who she turns to when she has her first vision. I’m looking forward to seeing further development in the characters as this is the first book in the series. I know it was hard for Tiffy to deal with becoming a professional poker player and then finding out you are psychic. That will take some adjusting. However, I thought the pairing of those two elements stands out in the mystery genre. I’m looking forward to reading more in the series to see just how Tiffy grows and adjusts to her new-found career and ability. I have a feeling she will be solving a lot more mysteries in her future. This looks like a promising new mystery series.
