The Fool Dies Last
by Carol Miller
The Bailey sisters may be the only ones able to interpret the meaning behind a bizarre series of murders in the first entry in the hilarious The Fortune Telling Mysteries series.
Sisters Hope and Summer Bailey run Bailey’s Boutique, a mystic shop in Asheville, North Carolina. While Hope’s performing a palm reading a local doctor, Dylan Henshaw, bursts in accusing them of trying to kill his patient with a tincture.
During the confrontation the sisters’ grandmother, Gram, interrupts: one of her friends has died suddenly. It looks like a simple allergic reaction . . . but why is there a solitary Tarot card – the Fool – with the body? When another of Gram’s friends dies in similar circumstances, and in possession of a Fool card, it’s surely no coincidence. What ties the victims together and could Gram be next?
Although Hope is hesitant to read the Tarot again following a recent tragedy, she might be the only one capable of deciphering the clues. Can she overcome her fear and uncover the card’s meaning before the killer strikes again?
