She eventually made her way to Peru where she learned that her husband had died in battle.

Friday, October 28, 2016

I’m always excited to find a new cozy mystery series and this one takes place in MICHIGAN!! Clyde, a female police officer in Ann Arbor, is originally from Crystal Haven on the west coast of Michigan. When something goes terribly wrong in Ann Arbor, she comes home to family--a family full of psychics and tarot readers. Clyde denies she has any talent in that arena but when a psychic is killed, can she deny it anymore? A fast paced book with some great secondary characters.
