Feisty Fortune Teller Extraordinaire Nana Vianu says the answer is in the cards. How right she is!
Nana’s granddaughter, Mallory Vianu, is busy hosting a blogging conference at Caravan Manor when she hears back from a local historian who’s translated the fifty-five-year-old diary Mallory found in the manor’s attic; the translation uncovers information about a set of original tarot cards Mallory’s great-grandmother, a Roma witch-wife, used to divine the future. Unfortunately, unlike her powerful relative, Mallory doesn’t see what’s coming next.
With two lethal murders connected to the manor, the Vianu girls must put their paranormal skills to the test. While hosting breakout sessions and parties for writers, digital creatives, and influencers, they mus
take clues from a ghost and
search for their greatest treasure yet.
But the closer they get to the truth, the closer they get to a killer, someone who looks a lot more like one of them than they realized.

Confessions of a Red Herring (A Red Herring Mystery) by Dana Dratch
About the Book
Confessions of a Red Herring (A Red Herring Mystery) Cozy Mystery 1st in Series Kensington (May 29, 2018) Mass Market Paperback: 336 pages ISBN-13: 978-1496716569 Digital ASIN: B075C8FDT5
As a reporter, she’s used to covering the news. Now she’s the headline.Alex Vlodnachek has been a reporter for 12 years, a P.R. rep for three months, and a murder suspect for all of 24 hours. When her agency's double-dealing CEO is stabbed, scheming co-workers cast the new redhead as a compelling red herring. The story is media catnip—especially her salacious nickname: Vlod the Impaler.Even Alex has to admit she looks guilty.Out of a job and under suspicion, Alex is running low on cash, when she’s visited by a second disaster: her family. Soon her tiny bungalow is bursting with her nearest and not-so-dearest. To keep herself out of jail—and save what’s left of her sanity—Alex returns to her reporting roots. She goes undercover to reclaim her life, break the story, and unmask a murderer. Pretty much in that order.What she doesn’t know: The killer also has a to-do list. And Alex is on it.
Confessions of a Red Herring by Dana Dratch is the first book in the new cozy A Red Herring Mystery series where ex-reporter Alex Vlodnachek gets framed for murder when the CEO turns up dead. All eyes land on Alex as the one who's done the deed which I didn't find was really explained up front. This gets her fired from her job (unfairly in my opinion) and so out of a job and under suspicion, Alex is running low on cash, when she’s visited by a second disaster: her family. Soon her tiny bungalow is bursting with her nearest and not-so-dearest. To keep herself out of jail—and save what’s left of her sanity—Alex returns to her reporting roots. She goes undercover to reclaim her life (cleaning toilets, no less), breaks the story, and unmasks the murderer. So what did I think? Excellent question. When I started the book, I though it suffered Fred Flintstone syndrome which basically means everything was going wrong for this poor girl and it was frustrating me beyond belief. It definitely sagged in the middle too but if you hang in there, the book redeems itself with the help of the main character's brother (Nick), friend (Trip), and grandmother (Baba). You can’t beat a spunky old lady with frying pans. I'm looking for the next book in the series.
