Faberge in the Frappuccino: Coffee House Clairvoyant: Book 2 by [Kelty Kells]

A girl’s best friend isn’t diamonds—it’s Faberge.

Very few people know about my talent for psycometry, and those who do tend not to take it seriously. After all, being able to touch an object and see its memories is pretty far-fetched, right?


Dead wrong, actually.

I’m still coming to terms with the fact that this talent helped me solve Brit Fuller’s murder. Unfortunately, she’s not the only one who’s been killed recently, and now, thanks to a glitzy Faberge egg in my frap, I might have the key to solving Mooring Cove’s latest crime. I just have to keep my cop ex-boyfriend off my tail long enough to do it and not end up dead myself along the way.

RIP me, huh?

My biggest question, though, is who’s putting things in my coffee and why? I mean, c’mon. Talk about a choking hazard.

Well, whoever it is, they’re messing with the wrong Karen. I’m gonna find out, and when I do, I’m not above throwing hands—and other things. (Amazon)

Opals in the Oolong: Coffee House Clairvoyant: Book 3 by [Kelty Kells]

Glitz, glam, bam, bam, bam. Opals have never been so deadly.

Okay, so maybe I’m psychic. Not the sort of psychic you’re thinking of, though. I can’t read fortunes or palms, and I have no idea what tarot cards are for. That’s because I’m not your run-of-the-mill psychic. I’m something else. I can touch objects and collect their history, and someone in Mooring Cove definitely knows my secret.

So far, they’ve spiked my coffee with an emerald necklace and a Faberge egg, and now they’ve done it again. This time, though, I’ve found raw opals in my tea.

Oh, yum.

Now it’s up to me to narrow down who’s been killed, what these opals have to do with the murder, and who in town knows about my talents. Sure, that might seem easy, but trust me, with my cop ex-boyfriend going through a divorce, things just got a whole lot more difficult.

Plus, I’m pretty sure he still thinks I’m involved in the murders.

Doesn’t matter. One way or another, I’m gonna solve this one, nail down whoever’s been spiking my drinks, and walk away from an explosion in slow-motion.

Okay, so probably not that last one, but a girl can dream, right? (Amazon)
