great escape tour banner PALL IN THE FAMILY large640



The aptly named Crystal Haven is the destination for tourists seeking psychics, séances, and the promise of contacting the spirit world. In this small western Michigan town, everyone knows the Fortune family. Rose is gifted with Tarot card readings. Her sister Vi is a self-proclaimed pet psychic.  And her daughter Clyde is…

A cop. A cop on leave from Ann Arbor, more specifically, who’s come home to kooky Crystal Haven to re-evaluate her life. Mom and Aunt Vi can’t wait for Clyde to finally embrace her own psychic gifts and join the family business. Clyde would prefer the low-stress lifestyle of a dog walker.

But when a local psychic is killed, leaving behind a traumatized Shih Tzu, it seems to be in the cards for Clyde to get involved.  With her old flame Mac leading the investigation, that may prove awkward. Whether she uses her skills as a cop or her long-denied psychic abilities, it’s up to Clyde to divine a killer’s identity before someone else suffers more misfortune.

My Review:

Pall in the Family was a great book.  I really loved the town of Crystal Haven.  Clyde moved back for the summer to take a break from her job.  She was staying with her family who were know for their Psychic abilities.   Clyde’s mom read cards, her aunt was a pet Psychic and Clyde was the one with the most abilities but she does not use them.  Clyde dog walking to give her something to do and earn a bit of spending money.  She is stopping to walk one dog when she finds a surprise – a dead body.  The investigating sheriff happens to be an old boyfriend that maybe she wasn’t over yet.  Here is were the story gets interesting.  You need to read Pall in the Family.  I am sure you will love it as much as I did.

The author has offered to send one of my readers a  Paperback of The Pall in the Family.  You must be 18+ and have a US shipping address.  Leave a comment on your favorite type of books.  Extra entries for each way you follow Kaisy Daisy’s Corner.  Giveaway ends on Aug 27, 2013.

  1. Love all types of mysteries.

  2. i like mysteries to read

  3. Truly, mysteries are my favorite genre. I’ve just learned the term ‘cozy mystery’ in the last few months, but I have to say, I knew immediately what that meant. So under the bigger heading of mystery/suspense I do have to include ‘cozy’ AND ‘romantic’ (even just a hint). Because I also like romance novels – and when romance and mystery can ‘marry-up’ that is all to the better!
