Fourth in the Chintz 'n China cozy mystical mystery series featuring Emerald O'Brien, a tarot reader and tea shop owner. This is one of those series that I was dubious about when I started reading them but have enjoyed each successive book more and am glad I took a chance on the first one. When Joe, Emerald's boyfriend, buys the lot next to Emerald's house and they begin clearing away decades' worth of brambles and undergrowth, they discover the foundation of an old house. Emerald immediately gets some bad vibes coming from the place and when their cat Samantha disappears, she wonders just what they've unearthed. Research reveals that the house burned down fifty years before but no one died in the incident--so where is the malevolent spirit coming from? Em is once again embroiled in a battle of not only bad spirits, but some not-to--nice living and breathing humans too. Enjoyable!

4th in the series and as well done as the third one was. The characters personal lives are developing nicley, the plot was well done and interesting without being too far out. The writing keeps on improving, which is great as I really like the paranormal influence of these books but wouldn't be able to deal with them if the writing was poor. There's still way too many typos and poor sentence structure, but that's the publisher's fault. I really wish these companies would use a better quality of proofreader!

This is the fourth in the Chintz and China series starring small town tea shop owner and paranormal magnet Emerald O'Brien. The series itself has been a bit uneven, but this entry is smooth, well plotted and advances the personal storyline nicely while presenting a well developed mystery. The peripheral characters in this series are excellent and the rather offbeat otherworldly story elements really work with the plot. Galenorn manages to make the completely out of the ordinary work itself in perfectly with the utterly ordinary, day-to-day and normal. An excellent cozy.

BORING.
I didn't even want to finish this story it was so yawning, dragged out, unevent-filled. I was skipping pages of eating dinner and endless blackberry bramble clearing to boring diary entries. This story needed an editor. Hated it.

This book was fun, but the plot was thinner than the others I've read in this series. It's all about what they find in the vacant lot next to Emerald's house; it used to have a very substantial house, but it's been vacant and overgrown for 50 years since the house burned down on Halloween night. Worth the read, but not the best of the series.

Great book, most sets that have more then two books to it kind of get redundent well this set dose not. It just gets better and better.
