In this gripping second novella in the Crystal Cave series, bestselling author Susan Wittig Albert tells an intriguing tale of murder in the Texas Hill Country.

Ruby has a rare gift for seeing things that others can't . . .

Ruby Wilcox (owner of the Crystal Cave, Pecan Springs' only New Age shop) is looking forward to an entertaining and profitable weekend as a vendor at the annual Mystic Creek Harvest Festival, held at a Hill Country ranch. Her booth is full of all kinds of magical, mystical wares: crystals and cards, rune stones, pendulums, dream catchers, wind chimes, and wands. The festival—famous for its artists, crafters, and fabulous folk musicians—attracts all sorts of Texans from all across the state. Still, Ruby is surprised when Detective Ethan Connors shows up. What prompts him to come? A love of folk art and music? Attraction to Ruby? Or a cop's skeptical curiosity about her psychic gift?

But the festival's fun comes to a bloody end when a Wiccan ritual knife is stolen from the Crystal Cave's booth and used to end a man's life. Ruby is an immediate suspect, of course, as the local sheriff—an old friend of Ethan Connors'—attempts to discover who did it and why. What was the motive?

When Ruby begins to suspect that she knows more than she's meant to know about the murder, she has to decide how to use this dangerous knowledge—and what to do when she realizes that she is dead wrong—again. Now, she must learn to listen to music that only she can hear.

Ruby Wilcox has a rare gift for seeing things that others can't, but it's unreliable. Her gift failed her once, when she lost her friend Sarah. Can she trust her talent to be there when she needs it—and to lead her in the right direction?

l thoroughly enjoyed this book. Ruby is a great character and reading about her as the star of the story was a real treat. Even though I am quite skeptical, I enjoyed reading about Ruby's gift.

This book was far too predictable for my taste and the plot is still a bit on the tedious side. I see little improvement over the first book. I really wanted to like this book, but I just can't see much here. I much prefer China Bayle and even the Darling Dahlias over this. Stephanie Clanahan

Firstly, the story was too occult/mystical babble, not my cup of tea...I prefer Chin Bayles' theme books...I'm also disappointed that it had so few pages...unlike M's. Albert's other books...I will check how many pgs in the future, if it's not in the 300+ range, I won't bother buying it. I'm not a happy camper!
