Review: Trouble in the Tarot by Kari Lee Townsend


Trouble in the Tarot by Kari Lee Townsend is the third book in the “Fortune Teller” mystery series. Publisher: Berkley Prime Crime, March 2013

 

Lately Sunny has been experiencing a period of big opportunity: her business in Divinity, New York, is thriving, and Detective Mitch Stone has finally agreed to take Sunny on a date. But thanks to her clairvoyant abilities, Sunny knows better than anyone that life deals out bad cards along with the good.

 

When Sunny agrees to read tarot cards at the annual Summer Solstice Carnival, she meets her Granny Gert‘s “arch nemesis” Fiona Atwater, and is overcome by a vision of Fiona in a violent argument. Sunny knows trouble is brewing when Granny and Fiona start having squabbles all over town. But the fighting comes to a head when a local baker gets run over by a big white Cadillac—and Granny and Fiona are found at the crime scene.

 

Sunny knows she should step aside and let Mitch handle the investigating, but she’s not about to ignore her visions and leave her granny’s life in fate’s hands.

 

Love, love, love this story. When Sunny’s Granny Gert and her nemesis Fiona are framed for murder, Sunny is on the case despite Grumpy Pant’s dictum that she stays away. This was a hilarious read as the Dynamic Duo wreck havoc where ever they went while Sunny tries to keep them out of jail. A good mystery that kept me guessing and I truly loved how the relationship between Sunny and Mitch continues to grow and I look forward to the next book in this delightfully charming series.
