There are happy endings, and then there are over the top, unrealistic, "murderer confesses double homicide to arresting officer" while "arch-rival buys several hundred dollars' worth of china from Heroine in a gesture of appreciation" and "Ecstatic Boyfriend buys lot next door and promises to propose on her next birthday" endings. Taken individually, any one of these unbelievable outcomes would spoil a good mystery, but when all occur in the same novel within the final two chapters, the result i ...more

Emerald O’Brien is not amused when journalist Cathy Sutton from KLIK T.V. wants to interview her again. They had a few not so nice run-ins before. And now she wants her to let her intern George, a wannabe-psychic, observe her in action? There is such a thing as client confidentiality. So when George doesn’t get what he wants, and has to pay for some expensive china he destroys, he tries to destroy Emerald’s reputation by questioning her abilities as a psychic in public, or rather, on public t.v. ...more

Emerald finds Scar all right, but not alive like Jimbo hoped. He is dead, and Emerald is leaning toward murdered an ...more
I very much enjoyed this 3rd book in Galenorn's Chintz 'n' China Mystery series. On the personal front, Emerald's relationship with Joe is beginning to get a bit more serious. And now Autumn is in full swing and the town is getting ready for it's annual Early Autumn Breeze Celebration.

Emerald has also become good friends with Jimbo the biker, who featured in the previous book. And now, Jimbo's friend Scar has gone missing, and tales point to the legendary Klakatat monster, supposedly living in
This book was given to me to read during a weekend camping trip and I fell in love with the characters and now I must go back and start the series at the beginning. You can really connect to the characters and you find yourself cheering or jeering depending on good guy or villan.

Magic and Mayham Mixed Together

Emerald's life continues to be mixed with both danger and wonder. The reader will find it heartwarming and also scary. It is a great addition to the Chintz 'm China Series.
Easy read...good story.

Ugh it really dragged. I'm hoping the next one is better!
I really love the way Yasmine pulls together a mystery. The pacing and flow of word choice and plot make her stories easy to read. The relationships she's creating in this series are a discovery on each page. And the way she drops hints here and there and misdirection to keep me guessing makes it easy to want to read another in this cozy mystery series.
girl writing
This is an entertaining series. Neat spin on witch, second sight, folklore knowledge about how to deal with the supernatural. Just your average divorced mom trying to make things work while having to kick some ghost butt. The interactions between the mom and her children seems a little forced and unnatural at times...but that's my only complaint.
This one had some good character development, for a lot of other characters besides Emerald, which I liked. It also pulled characters and issues from previous books into play for increased complexity that's interwoven with the mystery without bogging the story down. I like how everything flows together well.

Interesting amateur sleuth mystery; nice twist to have the protagonist be a mystic who can communicate on the astral plane. But boy oh boy, what a "Scooby Doo" ending! You know the kind, where the gang of pesky kids catches the bad guy who then conveniently confesses his crimes.
I give things three stars when they're not particularly good, but not terrible. Usually things I'm reading when I don't have anything really good to read. Those fluffy books. This is one of those. Not bad enough to give only two stars, but nothing redeeming.
This was the best of the first three. Galenorn seems to have found a rythm now & Emerald's character is developing well, as are all the secondary characters. I've reached a point where I'll really be looking forward to the next installment.

I love this long ago mystery s !
Parts of this book were really good. At times, I felt like I was re-reading the same section and the plot was moving very slowly. It was good but not really what I was expecting.
Second time I've read one of this series and I liked it much better than the last. Stayed fast paced and had a good story line. Was a great brain candy pick.
This is probably the one I like best of this series, so I give it 3.5 stars. What can I say, Emerald is growing on me...and Murray...and Harlow...etc. ;)
There is the magic and mystery with a turn or two. I stayed up too late reading this book too many nights! Always a sign of a good book for me!
The was my favorite of this series so far. The ancient mystical power in the mountain and its guardian warriors really caught my imagination.

Oh another joyful read. I figured out who the murderer was about 3/4 the way through. Poor Em having to deal with Cathy Sutton too much in this one.

I love the plot and the settings but some of the characters were a little flat... still, I'd give the other books in the series a chance.
Linda Wisdom
I truly enjoy Yasmine Galenorn's mysteries and love re reading them. She gives us a fun setting.
A fun and quirky mystery. This tale was fun and enjoyable. Not for me, but definitely well written.
I love the Chintz n China series and wish Yasmine would write more of them.

A fun quick read. A little far fetched but I definitely enjoyed it.
I don't know why I keep reading this series...
