My Review: 5 Stars

Jade Blackwell finds herself entertaining an old professor who turns her peaceful daily life upside down. Gwendolyn, a professor turned psychic medium, schedules a seance and as a group of characters assembles, secrets begin to be revealed and a murder occurs. I really liked the tension between Jade and Gwendolyn. Gwendolyn is the houseguest from Hell. Even Gwendolyn’s cat attacks Jade! There were many layers to this mystery and I found it riveting all the way through. This one is a good read.

Murder Over Medium: Jade Blackwell Mystery Series
3rd in Series
Misterio Press (December 31, 2017)

Former English professor turned blogger, Jade Blackwell, is enjoying her predictable routine when trouble comes knocking in the form of an old friend and colleague. Unbeknownst to Jade, Gwendolyn Hexby is no longer the successful academic she once knew and trusted—she is now following a new calling as a psychic medium, a contentious career that flies in the face of the logic and deductive reasoning Jade values.

At first, Jade welcomes the visit, but things soon turn bizarre as Gwendolyn brings only disorder danger and disruption. When a murder is prophesied, and a beloved pillar of the Aspen Falls’ community winds up dead, Gwendolyn becomes Sheriff Ross Lawson’s prime suspect.

To get Gwendolyn out of hot water, and more importantly, out of her house, Jade attempts to prove her friend’s innocence. Jade believes she’s finally discovered the truth, but is soon brought back to reality when she learns all is not as it seems in the realm of the metaphysical. Not even murder.

Return to the Jade Blackwell Cozy Mystery Series in Murder Over Medium, as Jade jumps into the fray of a territory not governed by logic or reason—in either this world or the next.
