About the Book:
While I like cozy mysteries, this one was not my favorite. It had too much of the aura and energy focus. I would have liked it better if it had been subtle but it seemed to be a constant feature. While I appreciate the twin energy connection, I did find the characters really hard to like, especially Sage. I didn't like their romance habits at all. The murder plot was suitable. It was just the emphasis on the energetics and the characters themselves that I did not like. This particular novel was not for me.
My rating: 3/5 stars.
