A PSYCHIC CRYSTAL MYSTERY, BOOK THREE, published by The Wild Rose Press
The psychic detective team of Crystal & Hale, former Atlanta police detective Jack Hale and his bride “Crystal Ball Kate,” is on a two-week transatlantic cruise. They are called in to investigate the threat to a high-profile European Union banking conference aboard ship and to calm the fears of the superstitious crew, who think the ship is cursed. Before long they realize they also need to catch an art thief and find a murderer.
Assisting them, posing as husband and wife at Kate and Jack’s insistence, are Juliette Spencer, Kate’s mother, and Graysville Police Chief Will Bradley, a debonair widower. Juliette just wants to enjoy the cruise and her daughter’s company, but given Chief Bradley’s unrelenting amorous advances in close quarters she may have to either jump ship or throw him overboard.

She tried to fight her feelings,but, she had to admit, the Chief was making her feel something.
Something monumental. Some couples walking by clapped. The men gave Will a thumbs-up.
Finally, he let her go.
“Don’t do that again,” Juliette hissed, straightening the sleeve of her dress from where it had slipped off her shoulder.
“It felt good, didn’t it, sugar?” Will challenged.
“Maybe to you, but not to me.” Juliette colored, and she made a show of smoothing the wrinkles out of her wrinkle-free dress. She wondered if the Chief knew she was lying.
“Just let go, Juliette. You’re so uptight. You know you felt something. Let’s see where it takes us.”
“I know where it’s going to take us. Nowhere. And if you kiss me like that again, you’ll be sorry.”
“Now don’t go getting your feathers all ruffled. What are you going to do, turn me into a frog?”
Juliette mustered up her most malevolent glare and fixed him with her cold-as-steel violet eyes.
“Don’t tempt me, Will Bradley. You don’t want to mess with me. I killed a man, remember?”
“A man who deserved to die,” Will said. “Someday, I’d like to hear the story, from you.”
“Instead of the tabloids? Well, I killed him, and I’d do it again. Just mull that over, next time you decide to paw me in public,” Juliette threatened.
