Fortune Teller Mystery #7

Murder in the Meditation

Meditation leads to peace and tranquility—or deadly visions if you’re psychic Sunshine Meadows…

Sunny’s parents and Granny couldn’t be happier—or more overbearing—with the news of their first grandchild on the way, and Sunny’s new husband Detective Mitch Stone couldn’t be more terrified—or overprotective. Even her biggest ally Morty the cat has turned against her and partnered up with her husband, which is something she never thought she’d see in this lifetime. All because trouble has a way of seeking her out. When Sunny becomes over stressed, her doctor orders her to meditate. Not an easy task with a psychic convention in town. Sunny’s visions are not of pink and blue; she’s seeing red as meditation leads to murder and the head psychic winds up dead. With no prime suspects, Sunny has no choice but to seek out trouble and use her clairvoyant abilities to solve this case if she is ever going to be free to focus on being a mother. That is if the real killer doesn’t make her lose her mind first…

Meditation , it helps me when I'm under stress.
(Deb Pelletier 12:38pm December 6)

I like small town romances
(Joanne Pezzuti 4:57am December 6)

I like to meditate when I walk in the afternoon, and focus only on the beauty of
nature surrounding me, at my local park. Thank you for the opportunity to enter a
contest. Have a wonderful day and take care!
(Tracey Boehm 7:14am December 6)

I like meditation early in the morning when everything is
quiet and everyone is asleep.
(Tanja Dancy 8:35am December 6)

I meditate when I'm under stress.

I enjoy meditation - both when it works and when it doesn't. at least I'm
trying. Thanks for the chance to win. Happy holidays.
(Nancy Reynolds 3:02pm December 6)

Despite all the benefits to meditating, I have yet to try it yet....
(Tracy Urschler 4:41pm December 6)

It took me quite a few tries before I learned how to shut
down my brain to meditate.
(Tina Rucci 7:33pm December 6)

I don’t meditate formally that much, but I pray a lot! I have also found a lot of
breathing techniques, visualization and progressive relaxation helpful,
especially when in pain, as I am frequently. When I could work, I was an
obstetrical nurse and certified to teach childbirth classes.
(Kara Marks 10:42pm December 6)

I went on a retreat to Canada where we made life plaster face
masks, yoga, yoga breathing (it looked more like panting) and
meditation. It was relaxing except for the yoga breathing
which I had trouble getting the hang of. Meditation can be
mind clearing if you practice the art of meditation enough.
(Alyson Widen 11:36pm December 6)

I tried meditation and had no real luck. I was doing it following a DVD. The first
part is to clear your mind. Couldn't 't do it. All I had to do and plan kept intruding.
We did take yoga classes and I found I could clear my mind and meditate in that
type of a setting. Sadly, with COVID the classes were suspended. I can't wait until
they start them up again.
(Patricia Barraclough 1:26am December 7)

(Isika Patel 2:48am December 7)

After my husband passed away I found that just sitting still
and remember all that we had shared helped me relax
(L Folstad 7:21pm December 7)

Hi Kari! It's an absolute MUST to have laugh out loud moments
in my ideal story as well as being set in a small town.
Thanks for sharing! Happy Holidays!
(Elizabeth Haney 9:59pm December 7)

I don’t meditate as often as I want to. I really like the process and wish I had the
time to do it more. It seriously helps! Lessens stress, loosens your muscles, and
helps you breathe better. I read a lot so that relaxing, but I do want to meditate
(Andrea Drake 10:33pm December 7)

I need to meditate. A little quiet time would help relax me
(Phyllis Lamken 11:09pm December 7)

I meditate every morning since COVID started.
(Rebecca Shields 7:14am December 8)

I don't formally mediate, but after my son's death, I looked
at photos of him that dated back to his birth and thought
about the wonderful times we had together. Also, if I feel
stressful, I pick up an interesting book and start reading. It
takes me away from any problems I think I have.
(Anna Speed 2:45pm December 8)

Loved the description of your book. Looking forward to reading it. Thanks.
(Sharon Extine 5:41pm December 8)

I enjoy some quiet time to calm down and focus on things...
(Colleen Conklin 6:26pm December 8)

I've tried meditation before and it was very relaxing. I
stopped doing it but maybe I'll try it again.
(Meredith Winn 1:09pm December 9)

silence is pure bliss....
(Martin Bodnar 9:58pm December 9)
