Abigail and Hyperion uncork a murder…
Tea and Tarot room owner Abigail Beanblossom is used to running interference for her socially-awkward former boss, tech billionaire Razzzor. So when he invites her on a stakeout to investigate the sale of counterfeit wine from his latest venture – an upscale winery – she barrels on in. But the two stumble across the corpse of a wine merchant, and new wine in old bottles is now the least of their problems.
Good thing amateur detectives Abigail and her partner, tarot reader Hyperion Night, have a nose for murder. Their investigation takes them from elegant wine cellars to chic tea parties on the California coast. But just as the investigation starts to get its legs, Abigail discovers there’s more than wine at the bottom of this crime…
Hostage to Fortune is book 2 in the Tea and Tarot cozy mystery series. Start reading this hilariously cozy caper today!

*I received a free copy of this book which I voluntarily chose to write an honest review for.

I am new to this series but as a fan of the author I had to check it out. I was not disappointed and now I need to go back to read the others in the series. Abigail owns a tea shop and her partner Hyperion (great name huh?) does the tarot half of the business. Abigail gets pulled into a stake out by her friend Razzzor (these names have me dying laughing) who links someone is tampering with his wine brand. After two people go and out quick they go in to check only to find the owner dead. Abi tries to stay out of it but Razzzor gets arrested making that impossible. The investigating duo is a hoot and when you Add in a few more eclectic chats stars it just gets even better. Makes for a humorous good time as the clues play out leading one doozy of an ending. I really liked it so I give it 4/5 stars.
