In Parkland, North Carolina, the two house mates, private investigator David Randall and psychic Camden, come home when the latter goes over to say hello to their neighbor Jared Hunter.  Camden finds him stabbed to death while David calls the cops.  The police suspect David’s client Boyd Taylor killed Jared.


Soon after discovering the body Camden has flashbacks to the murder, but Boyd is not included in what he envisions.  David learns that Jared and Bert Galvan the son of the Parkland Herald editor, were involved in a break-in at the Parkland Museum of History.  Meanwhile the Parkland Avenger is a failing fool in which the Super Hero Society of Parkland insists this bumbler is not one of them. 


The latest entertaining Grace Street investigation (see Stolen Hearts) is an engaging cozy that has too many eccentric characters making it difficult to keep track of the several subplots.  The narrator Randall is a fascinating protagonist as he works the whodunit and sees Kary while fearing his mom’s interrogation over the death of his daughter.  Fans will enjoy this zany regional cozy as Christmas arrives in Parkland.
