Equi Knocks of Karma (Carr — Maah Consulting Agency Book 2)
Jada Ryker, author
In the second stand-alone adventure in the Carr-Maah Consulting Agency paranormal mystery series, Celeste Carr and Ericka Maah, business partners and friends, face a powerful and ruthless adversary. Celeste and Ericka are held hostage by Toni Rae Yelton, a self-centered party girl. Toni Rae is desperate. She orders the mysterious Ericka to use her alleged supernatural powers to call off the police and the reporters, who are all convinced Toni Rae is the sinister force behind her little girl's disappearance. Adding to Celeste's angst, Hobart has vanished. The mysterious drifter was forced off the streets some months ago, when Ericka used a combination of her unusual talents and blackmail to coerce Hobart into working for her firm. He reluctantly agreed. More enthusiastically, at least until his disappearance, he was also Celeste's boyfriend. Now Celeste believes he's back on the streets. Celeste is forced to not only investigate but also navigate the landmines in her life, while Ericka duels with her archenemy and business rival, handsome and charismatic Christoph Metre. An odd little dog, curiously attuned to Celeste and using his teeth, claws, and smell for protection, attaches himself to her. When she's in danger, a devilishly handsome stranger materializes to save her . . . and makes her less eager to find her missing boyfriend. As the sinister cords of the mystery tighten around Celeste's throat, she must find the person behind the mask in time to save not only herself but others. With the fine Machiavellian hand leaving few clues but many deadly traps, Celeste will have to solve the mystery before it's too late. SPECIAL BONUS: As a reader appreciation gift, the short story "Winner Takes All" is included FREE at the end of the book.
