Corpse in the Crystal Ball

Book Description: After clearing her name as the prime suspect in a murder, Sunny Meadows hopes she can finally enjoy some serenity in the idyllic town of Divinity in upstate New York. She’d also like a second chance with Detective Mitch Stone. But when Mitch’s gorgeous ex-girlfriend Isabel Gonzales shows up, Sunny’s not sure she can compete. Then Isabel mysteriously disappears.
When the police turn to Sunny for help, her visions lead to the discovery of Isabel’s corpse in the woods. Before she died, Isabel scrawled a message in the dirt implicating Mitch in her murder. Now Sunny must help the man she’s falling in love with as she sets out to find the real killer. But this time Sunny’s clairvoyant abilities might not save her—as what she doesn’t see can hurt her…

My Review: Can I adopt Granny Gert? Riding along on her driving lessons had me in stitches! And I loved her interactions with Morty (bow ties, night nights, and herbal have to read the book to find out how cute they are together!) I'm so happy she's decided to stay in Divinity - she is one of the best new characters in mystery fiction.

This mystery is light and breezy - the perfect summer read. Halfway through I was suspicious of one character, and I was proven right, although the motive pleasantly took me by surprise, and I liked how Mitch's sad past was tied up, hopefully paving the path to a future with Sunny. Delightful!

Tara's Thoughts: Morty and I are both such lucky kitties. We both have grandmas that love us to pieces and take care of us when Mommy isn’t around. And hopefully Sunny learned her lesson – pay better attention to Morty! He was trying to alert her to some very important clues!
