Such a great start to a new cozy series. Madness of Mercury by Connie di Marco is a fun, exciting, page turning adventure. All of the characters are well thought out and full of independent strong women.
Julia Bonatti is starting over and is living in San Francisco where the fog rolls in everyday and she loves it. She is an astrologer and to supplement her income, works for the local paper doing a column called Ask Zodia. She has a new client, Dorothy who is a nurse and caregiver to her ailing aunts Eunice and Evandra Gamble. She is looking for advice on her love life when one of the aunts come to her and say that they are in danger! Julia looks into the charts and realizes things are not looking good. Things are lining up that could cause major problems. Then she gets a call to come back to the Gamble house only to find out that Luis, the aunts handyman is found dead??? Why would anyone want to kill Luis?
On top of all of this she has some crazy followers of Reverend Roy and the Prophets Tabernacle picketing not only her and her house but her friend Cheryl who is the manager at the Mystic Eye.
How is she going to get rid of these crazy followers before they do more damage than just to her and Cheryl's business?
Great and fun start to a new series! Look forward to book two.
