Publisher's Summary

A New Age conference comes to Estes Park, Colorado, bringing a cacophony of tie-dye, crystals, and murder....

As summer draws to a close, the Spirit, Health, and Heart Conference arrives, just in time for Winifred's sisters to open their store next to the Cozy Corgi Bookshop. To Fred's surprise, chakras turns out to be a beautiful addition to the delightful mountain town. The shop even has a room so pleasing in its crystal tranquility that Fred's corgi, Watson, approves - and hardly anything impresses him.  

But not everyone is charmed by the crystals, tarot readings, and messages of personal enlightenment. When a famous spiritualist is found dead, Chakras and the entire town are plunged into a conflict that touches the lives of those closest to Fred.  

Although she is hesitant to become involved, it is simply not in the cards for Fred to sit out the investigation. As she and Watson embark on a journey that forces them to take a look into the darker shadows of Estes Park, Fred soon finds herself digging into the secrets of those she loves....

Mysterious rocks

Fred really does have a knack for finding dead bodies. Estes Park has never seen so much death as since she’s come to town. Under the idyllic and tranquil setting, there are undercurrents, some of which came to the surface in the last book. They’re all but forgotten in this one as Fred embraces the late summer tourist season. She’s settled into her bookstore with her trusty corgi Watson by her side and her best friend Katie upstairs with her bakery. They’ve got the twin teenage boys helping so they’re able to enjoy all Estes Park has to offer. Especially the new-age conference that has come to town.

Fred’s step-sisters Zelda and Verona are actively involved in the conference, especially since it fits beautifully with their new shop. Fred had worried about feeling hemmed in with family owning stores on either side of her, but she’s settled into a comfortable routine and has actually come to enjoy having her sisters and brothers-in-law so close. When a dead body shows up in the women’s shop, it’s Fred to the rescue. She makes her way through a number of suspects before discovering all is not as it seems with her sisters. In fact there are secrets being held close to the vest and it’s up to Fred to discover the truth before an innocent person goes to jail for the murder.

I love these books. There are times when I relate to Fred and this was definitely one of them. “I tend to be fairly black and white in my thinking as far as how the world works. Things can be explained if you dig deep enough. Find the right clues. Unlike most members of my family, I like to think a pretty rock is just a pretty rock. But there are times lately when I’m not so sure.”

I can relate.

On a side note, there were passing references to Native Americans and I would have loved to see that examined more. Perhaps in a future book?

Angie Hickman again helmed the narration for this book and I’m just thrilled. She’s consistent with each character and just the perfect Fred. Another great listen.
