The second book of the Tarot Mysteries (first was the White Magic Five and Dime) is as engaging as the first. Alanis continues to right the wrongs her deceased mother put upon past clients of the store, but finds that sometimes when she thinks she’s helping, she’s only making things worse. Her belief in the tarot cards wavers a bit, straying a bit from her initial feelings that they are a complete scam. There are even new romance possibilities, which if you love Alanis, you’ll be rooting for a positive outcome. The last word of the book is a huge cliffhanger, and will leave you dying for the next one.
