Psychic Sunshine Meadows makes a dark discovery in the woods… After clearing her name as the prime suspect in a murder, Sunny Meadows hopes she can finally enjoy some serenity in the idyllic town of Divinity in upstate New York. She’d also like a second chance with Detective Mitch Stone. But when Mitch’s gorgeous ex-girlfriend Isabel Gonzales shows up, Sunny’s not sure she can compete. Then Isabel mysteriously disappears. When the police turn to Sunny for help, her visions lead to the discovery of Isabel’s corpse in the woods. Before she died, Isabel scrawled a message in the dirt implicating Mitch in her murder. Now Sunny must help the man she’s falling in love with as she sets out to find the real killer. But this time Sunny’s clairvoyant abilities might not save her—as what she doesn’t see can hurt her…
I really enjoyed reading Corpse in the Crystal Ball, it is a very fun and fast read. It had me giggling at times and even made me laugh out loud a few times. 

Now Sunny has cleared her name and trying to settle into her new life in Divinity she gets a little surprise. Her parents send Granny Gert to her house to check up on her. But Granny Gert is not the only new person in Divinity.
