This sixth episode in the series brings back some of our favorite characters. Camilla is, as usual, on the brink of financial disaster when a trio of wacky women enter her life and the questions (and bodies) start piling up.
Why does everyone think Camilla has the lost Portuguese crown jewels? Will homicidal Mack Rattlebag discover Camilla's boyfriend Ronzo only faked his own death? And what has turned polite little Buckingham into an attack cat?
It's one surprise after another in this warp-speed comedy-mystery. Ronzo helps Camilla keep her struggling Morro Bay bookstore afloat with his unexpected tarot reading skills...until the lover of one of his tarot clients turns up dead on the beach. It's up to Camilla and Ronzo-and the tarot cards-to solve the mystery.
Meanwhile, Camilla's ex-husband Jonathan Kahn resurfaces, sparking old feelings, and Ronzo has a new rival: a too-perfect doctor who may or may not be in cahoots with a gang of murderous New-Agers.
