Special Guest Post – Kari Lee Townsend author of Trouble in the Tarot

I’m taking another day off and turning the blog over to a friend and neighbor (we live in the same state) Award Winning Author Kari Lee Townsend.

TROUBLE IN THE TAROT (book 3 of the Fortune Teller Mysteries – March 5, 2013)

Trouble in the TarotFor psychic Sunshine Meadows, sometimes fortunes can be deceiving…

Lately Sunny has been experiencing a period of big opportunity: her business in Divinity, New York, is thriving, and Detective Mitch Stone has finally agreed to take Sunny on a date. But thanks to her clairvoyant abilities, Sunny knows better than anyone that life deals out bad cards along with the good.

When Sunny agrees to read tarot cards at the annual summer Solstice Carnival, she meets her Granny Gert’s “arch nemesis” Fiona Atwater, and is overcome by a vision of Fiona in a violent argument. Sunny knows trouble is brewing when Granny and Fiona start having squabbles all over town. But the fighting comes to a head when a local baker gets run over by a big white Cadillac—and Granny and Fiona are found at the crime scene.

Sunny knows she should step aside and let Mitch handle the investigating, but she’s not about to ignore her visions and leave her granny’s life in fate’s hands…

I grew up on Special K Bars and proceeded to make them for my family and pass on the tradition. They were the first cookies I ever made. So easy, yet they look like they took a lot of time. I usually don’t share my cookie recipes, but since you all are just so darn nice, I decided to share the deliciousness J Enjoy!


Special K Bars


1 cup light Karol syrup

1 cup sugar

1 ½ cups peanut butter

6 cups Special K Cereal

1 bag Hershey’s Semi-Sweet Chocolate Chips


Melt chocolate chips (double boiler style) on the stove. While chips are melting, bring 1 cup Karol syrup and 1 cup sugar just to a boil and then remove from heat. Stir in 1 ½ cups of peanut butter until melted. Stir in 6 cups Special K Cereal until mixed well. Press mixture into 9×13 inch pan. Pour melted chocolate chips over the top and refrigerate until hardened. Cut into bars and enjoy!
