"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."

This is the third book in the series about a reformed grifter and her quest to make good on her family's long term arc through the shadowy world of cons. She has settled in the small town of Berdach, AZ where her other owned and operated a Fortune Telling/Occult business fleecing the unsuspecting. By this book Alanis has settled in, gained a half sister and a fairly normal life except that murder and mayhem follow her and people from her past reappear again. Interspersed are a cast of characters that range from slightly normal to off the wall odd and unusual.

While the story is a bit implausible, I was drawn in by the reluctance of the main character to actually believe what she is seeing and feeling and her attempts to keep grounded while the world spins around her. She keeps looking in the fish tank where her mother's ashes are holding down the fort just to be sure she isn't pulling strings from the grave. Quirky, fun, a bit mysterious, a cast of oddballs and some love disguised and hidden make this one a quick and enjoyable read. I look forward to book #4.

What a BORING story. Padded out and predictable. I am so very disappointed after the last two were so very GOOD!
