Tempest in the Tea Leaves By Kari Lee Townsend Copyright August 2011 Publisher Berkeley Prime Crime Leaving the Big Apple for the quaint town of Divinity, New York, Sunny is determined to make it on her own as a psychic. With an ancient Victorian house as her place of business, Sunny uses various psychic methods to aid the town's residents. But when she uses tea leaves to give a reading for a frazzled librarian, what she finds at the bottom of the cup is anything but helpful. Sunny informs the police of her deadly vision, but her warning is too late. And with hard-nosed, ruggedly handsome Detective Mitch Stone denying her abilities and naming her prime suspect, the situation is dire. Now Sunny has to use her visions to clear her name, before the killer can put an end to the psychic's future... This book took me deeply into the storyline. We all have relatives who are quirky, but I recognized half my family in the first 100 pages. Kari has blended cozy, comedy, mystery and a bit of the supernatural (ghosts are supernatural, vamps and weres are paranormal) into a cohesive and extremely funny and wet undies from laughing masterpiece. It has wisps and hints of George and Gracie, Bud and Lou, and also Stan and Laurel built into the two main protagonists. I predict a long and very successful run for this new author and her characters.
