Book Review by Bree Herron
Janet Finsilver, why haven’t I read your work before? I was so enthralled with Murder at the the Fortune Teller’s Table that I read it twice in one weekend. I appreciated the depth of the characters, and I loved the Greek culture.
This book instantly had me spellbound, I loved the charming town Redwood Cove, and the charming B&B. Kelly was the perfect main character, with her brilliance and sleuthing ability. I was drawn to her inquisitive mind, that led this reader through a fabulous death and murder investigation. I really enjoyed that this was a mystery years in the making with past mixing with the present.
I felt that Janet gave such depth into honoring the Greek heritage to Auntie. Auntie was brief but loved in this book. I really loved the mystic side of the fortune teller story, giving it a realistic vibe. I was humbled when reading in the final chapters the mourning and love that even as a reader I could sense the characters really had for Auntie.
Kelly charmed the socks right off of this reader, and if I had a crystal ball I would predict she would to you as well. Now go get the book and have the fortunate chance to experience the adventure!
