Madam Tulip and the Knave of Hearts by David Ahern
"Madam Tulip! Actress, fortune-teller, psychic, sleuth!"
When out-of-work actress Derry O'Donnell moonlights as celebrity fortune-teller Madam Tulip in an English Stately home, she’s trying to make some cash.
Instead, she is drawn into an alien world of wealth, titled privilege and family secrets.
A countess once a chorus girl, a gambling earl and his daughters, a cultured and handsome art expert—all caught in a terrifying web of ghastly threats, murder and
abduction. As an aristocratic engagement party turns into a nightmare, Derry and her friend Bruce face the prospect of a gruesome and infamous death.
Madame Tulip and the Knave of Hearts is the second in a series of thrilling and hilarious Tulip adventures in which Derry O’Donnell, celebrity fortune-teller and
reluctant amateur detective, plays the most exciting and perilous roles of her acting life, drinks borage tea, and fails to understand her parents.
Madam Tulip is back and I couldn't be more excited! I loved the first book and, if possible, I think I loved this one even more! So much mystery and excitement, definitely a hit!
Davis Ahern has a way of writing that you can totally create the scenes in your mind. It makes me want it to be a movie or television show! Well, maybe not, the books are always better. I'll continue to let my imagination play in my head for now.
If you like funny, exciting murder mystery type books (maybe like the Janet Evanovich/Stephanie Plum books) you will definitely love these! I certainly adore Derry O'Donnell/Madam Tulip and all her antics and adventures! This book keeps you on your toes for sure!
Note: I received a copy of this book from the author in exchange for an honest review.
