Description:

Poisons, prophecies—and a peculiar past . . .

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 attackeds. 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 . . .

My Thoughts:

This book follows Kelly Jackson at the Redwood Cove Bed and Breakfast. This story starts out with Kelly at a school benefit Kelly also goes and have her coffee grinds read.  To see what her future holds, while there a young girl implores the Silver Sentinels to help her with something by meeting together after the benefit to help her unable to find out anymore the Sentinels agree to meet with the young girl.  What could she possibly need from the Sentinels and could it be a matter of life or death?

The Silver Sentinels are givin a mission to locate two people that Summer wants found, the history behind it Summer won't say.  Which makes it all the more curious as to why these people and why?

When Auntie and Summer wind up dead Kelly and the Silver Sentinels start investigating to figure what had Summer so upset and why someone would kill Auntie the fortune teller and Summer.  Will they figure it out or will their good fortune come to a drastic end?

I love this series especially Kelly and the Senior Sentinels they are a fun group who love to investigate mysteries, especially and this one where Kelly and the seniors have to investigate people who have a big secret and determine if they want to help out or not.  I love going back to this series when a new book is written to see where Kelly and the Sentinels are up to now.  Can't wait to see what is next for Kelly and her friends and of course the Silver Sentinels are involved in next!
