Описание

When a local woman begins searching for a couple she hasn't seen since the 1960s, Redwood Cove Bed and Breakfast manager Kelly Jackson and the crime-solving group, the "Silver Sentinels," are quick to help out. They're also quick to guess that they're in over their heads after the woman is found dead beside the body of a Greek fortune teller—and a fellow Sentinel gets attacked. As Kelly juggles work and her responsibilities at a food and wine festival in town, she and her sleuthing posse must confront a killer obsessed with old secrets . . . and solve a murder mystery more than fifty years in the making.

    Author Janet Finsilver sets the scene for a pleasant cozy mystery that is heartwarming in a wonderful setting with fantastic characters. I enjoyed the first two books in the Kelly Jackson series, and this one was just as good. The main cast of characters are intelligent, fun, and easy to imagine as real-life friends.

    Kelly Jackson is the new manager of Redwood Bed & Breakfast. She is still learning about the various festivals in the area. At the latest festival she meets Despina (better known as Auntie) who reads patterns in coffee grounds. When Summer, a close friend of Auntie, gets news from her, she approaches the Silver Sentinels for assistance finding a man and woman who are the biological parents of her son. She says that it's a life or death matter. The Sentinels start investigating, and it quickly becomes clear someone doesn't like their queries. When the murders start, Auntie and Summer found poisoned, Kelly is threatened and Mary is attacked, they know they are on the right track.

    I love the small town setting in this series, and we got an even better look into the bed-and-breakfast that Kelly manages in this installment. Her friends, the Silver Sentinels, as they call themselves, are a great group and their distinct personalities work well together. There is a bit of a side story going on involving homeless people and service dogs that add another realistic aspect to the story. I was surprised at the ending, yet when you look back, there were clues there and it all fit. Remember, most murders are for love or money. A great cozy mystery that I recommend to any mystery lover.

    I continue to enjoy Janet Finsilver's Kelly Jackson series. Like the others, Murder at the Fortune Teller's Table is light and fun, has an intriguing mystery and very likable characters that make you want to keep coming back for more. If it weren't for the dead bodies, Redwood Cove would be a little slice of paradise on the northern California coast. Kelly has a boss most of us would give our eye teeth for, and she proves over and over again that she is a smart and truly caring person. When she and the Silver Sentinels realize that they're over their heads in solving this mystery, they don't plow full steam ahead, they talk things over with Deputy Sheriff Stanton and arrive at a compromise that means they can continue to help the police with the type of investigative work that they do best. I like seeing fictional characters work with the police-- and having fictional police who are willing to work with ordinary citizens.One of the features that I enjoy most about Finsilver's series is the fact that service dogs appear in each book-- and it's amazing just what sort of services they're capable of performing. In this third book, we get acquainted with hearing assistance dogs and a dog who is a companion to a man with PTSD. I love this element of the author's books and think it adds a great deal to the entire series.Beautiful setting, intriguing mystery, light, fun, and with characters and canines you can't help but want to bring home with you... recommending Janet Finsilver's Kelly Jackson series is a piece of cake.

    Murder at the Fortune Teller’s Table by Janet Finsilver is third book in A Kelly Jackson Mystery series. Kelly Jackson is the manager of the Redwood Cove Bed-and-Breakfast in Redwood Cove, California. Kelly is attending the local school’s annual fundraiser (and get to know your school event). She notices a woman come away from the fortune teller’s booth very upset and leaning on the arm of her son. The woman Amy “Summer” Winter later approaches Kelly and asks for a meeting with the Silver Sentinels. At the meeting, Summer explains that she needs two people found that she has not seen since 1967. Summer is able provides the group with the names, Diane Morgan and Ken Nelsen, but no further usable information (not even why she is looking for them). With a little computer sleuthing, the group is able to give Summer current addresses of Diane and Ken. It turns out that Mark, Summer’s son, is not her biological child. Mark is ill and needs a donor. After Auntie, the Greek fortune teller, saw the evil eye and stated that someone will die, Summer felt the need to urgently contact Mark’s biological parents for assistance. Kelly arranges for Ken Nelsen, his family and Diane to get a free weekend at the B and B courtesy of an anonymous benefactor. Summer does not want them to know it is her until after they arrive. They just have to agree to a meeting with the benefactor. The next day Mary is attacked in her home, and it is blamed on the Lunch Thief that has been plaguing the area. But then Summer and Auntie (the fortune teller) are found dead in Auntie’s home. The Silver Sentinels do not agree with the police ruling on the cause of death and start seeking answers. The killer does not appreciate Kelly’s pursuit of answers and sets out to stop her. Murder at the Fortune Teller’s Table is an easy to read book that is nicely written. I like the characters, though, I wish there were not so many of them. I do admit that it is hard to keep track of all the various characters. There is Kelly, the Silver Sentinels, the staff of the Redwood Cove Bed and Breakfast, Helen’s son, the dog, plus others (from a sister B&B and townspeople). It was nice to see some growth in Kelly’s character at the end of the novel. I give Murder at the Fortune Teller’s Table 3.5 out of 5 stars. I thought the mystery was interesting, and I do not believe that all readers will be able to identify the perpetrator. I picked out the person I thought was the culprit and then read to see if I was right. The mystery has several suspects and any one of them could easily be the killer. Then there is the mystery of the Lunch Time thief. He only attacks homes during the week at lunch time. I did appreciate how everything was wrapped up in the end. There was one more storyline included in this book that I found captivating. It is how dogs are being trained to help veterans with PTSD. Michael Corrigan, owner of Resorts International, is setting up a facility to help veterans. It is amazing what dogs are capable of with a little training. There is also a dog (a Chihuahua) trained to help a hearing-impaired woman. While Murder at the Fortune Teller’s Table is the third book in the series, it can be read alone. All the necessary background information is provided. Each book in the series is better than the last (I liked this one better than the previous two). I will be reading the next book in A Kelly Jackson Mystery series.

    Just finished and I was delighted with the entire story!It's wonderful when characters that you meet in a series starter continue to be as heartwarming and engaging in subsequent adventures. I was happy that Kelly made the decision to stay at the Redwood Cove and it was wonderful to see the Silver Sentinels come together again and fight justice.Hope the next adventure is soon!
