Psychic Sunshine Meadows makes a dark discovery in the woods… After clearing her name as the prime suspect in a murder, Sunny Meadows hopes she can finally enjoy some serenity in the idyllic town of Divinity in upstate New York. She’d also like a second chance with Detective Mitch Stone. But when Mitch’s gorgeous ex-girlfriend Isabel Gonzales shows up, Sunny’s not sure she can compete. Then Isabel mysteriously disappears. When the police turn to Sunny for help, her visions lead to the discovery of Isabel’s corpse in the woods. Before she died, Isabel scrawled a message in the dirt implicating Mitch in her murder. Now Sunny must help the man she’s falling in love with as she sets out to find the real killer. But this time Sunny’s clairvoyant abilities might not save her—as what she doesn’t see can hurt her…
I really enjoyed reading Corpse in the Crystal Ball, it is a very fun and fast read. It had me giggling at times and even made me laugh out loud a few times. 

Now Sunny has cleared her name and trying to settle into her new life in Divinity she gets a little surprise. Her parents send Granny Gert to her house to check up on her. But Granny Gert is not the only new person in Divinity. 
Sunny would like a second chance with Detective Stone, but when his gorgeuos looking ex Isabel stops by this gets a little difficult. And then there the hot new mailman, who seems to take an interest in Sunny. Ofcourse everything gets worse when Isabel is found dead and left a message which implicates Detective Stone. Now it is up to Sunny to clear his name and find the real killer.

Sunny is such a vibrant character you can't help but love her, she might be a bit stubborn and doesn't listen to anyone and always gets herself into trouble, but everything is always done with nothing but good at mind. But Granny Gert is also a very nice edition to the family. They make for a nice combination. And let's not forget Morty, the cat, who is still one of my favorite characters in this series. And Sunny has a new love interest.
Kari Lee Townsend really puts some efford into explaining Sunny's clairvoyent abilities without overdoing it. No the explenations are nice and simple and easy to understand.

Yet again the second book in this series is very fun, I love Sunny's adventures and I can't wait to see what life brings her next.

My rating: 4/5
