REVIEW: Tempest in the Tea Leaves by Kari Lee Townsend

This is the first in a new cozy mystery series, A Fortune Teller Mystery series.

I really enjoyed this book. The characters are fun. The location was great. It was well written and kept me interested throughout.

Sunny has decided to make it on her own as a psychic. She buys an ancient Victorian house in Divinity, New York. She soon finds out the old house comes with a cat who just appears at the strangest times.

Sunny reads tea leaves and gives a reading to the librarian, seeing her death. She informs the police. Too late. She becomes the prime suspect.

Soon the chief pairs her up with Detective Mitch Stone to solve the murder. While they investigate the murder, sparks begin to fly between them. Can they find the killer and keep Sunny save? Can an unbeliever and a believer find love together?

I'm not into paranormal books unless they are on the light side. This is and it is a fun cozy to read. If you're looking for a serious mystery, this might not be for you. On the other hand, if you like to laugh when reading a mystery and want something light but that will hold your interest, I highly recommend this book. I look forward to reading the next one.
