TEMPEST IN THE TEA LEAVES
TEMPEST IN THE TEA LEAVES
A FORTUNE TELLER MYSTERY
BY KARI LEE TOWNSEND
ABOUT THE BOOK:
Using various fortune telling tools to interpret her visions, Sunny seeks to aid the residents of Divinity, New York. But when she uses tea leaves to read the frazzled town librarian, what lies at the bottom of the cup is anything but helpful.
FIRST IN A NEW SERIES!
In the fortune telling business there are a lot of pretenders, but Sunshine Meadows is the real deal--and her predictions can be lethally accurate...
Sunny is a big city psychic who moves to the quaint town of Divinity, NY to open her fortune telling business in an ancient Victorian house, inheriting the strange cat residing within. Sunny gives her first reading to the frazzled town librarian and discovers the woman is going to die.
When the woman flees in terror, Sunny calls the police, only she's too late. The ruggedly handsome, hard-nosed detective is a "non-believer." He finds the librarian dead, and Sunny becomes his number one suspect, forcing her to prove her innocence before the real killer can put an end to the psychic's future.
PRAISE FOR TEMPEST IN THE TEA LEAVES:

Great pacing, characters and a surprisingly good conclusion make this new series absolute fun!"

And soon the whole world will know it!"
