Reformed con artist-turned-tarot reader Alanis McLachlan gets paid for predicting the future—too bad she didn’t see all the trouble in hers. First a figure from her past tries to drag her back into the life of crime she thought she’d left behind. Then a new suitor tries to sweep Alanis off her feet, forcing her on-again, off-again romance with hunky teacher Victor Castellanos to hit the skids. And then there’s the little matter of the client who gets an ominous reading from Alanis . . . and is promptly murdered. Danger is in the cards for Alanis, and she’ll need all her skill at reading people and reading tarot if she’s going to survive.
Alanis who use to be a con-artist and now a tarot reader knows something is wrong.Biddle, her deceased mother’s former lover, just shows up out of the blue. Last time she saw him was about 25 years ago being carried by thugs into the desert. She thought he was dead.
With her friends help she is set to find out what is going on.
I did like the cards being explained and the illustrations. A great read and I did not feel lost as this is the first book in the series I have read. This is book 3.
I received an advanced copy from the author an voluntarily reviewed.
