Funny how getting mixed up with a few murders can give people second thoughts about inviting you into their house.

Good things about this book: It’s sadly hilarious that there are so many murders involving our Tom!

I love this series to pieces. I love the mystery yet I NEVER get the murderer right. I guess I’m not really a detective, not good at understanding who is a suspect.
Loved Tom, as usual, and with all the mixed feelings he makes ne have, I’m warming a lot to Phil! I just want them to be happy! As much as I’m tolerating Phil a little bit more, I still find his sudden bursts of anger to be annoying and unnecessary. Tom doesn’t deserve this. They need to understand each other and trust each other more; they’re getting married for goodness sake!
I reeled away from the gazebo feeling in dire need of a bit of moral support, possibly of the liquid variety. No, scratch that. This was serious. I needed moral support of the tall, blond, and broody variety.
Tom is famous now and everyone wants a piece of his psychic butt. Unfortunately nobody seems to understand what his talent entails. He is bothered and he doesn’t need to add that to his many sufferings. A posh lady asks him to find her missing valuable necklace and, not surprising me in the slightest, she ends up dead. Again, Tom is badly hurt, Phil wants to protect him at all cost, and they end up in trouble. Their life is not boring, that’s for sure.
“Stop judging my taste in food,” I told Merlin. “I saw you eat a moth last week. And it was still flapping at the time. You haven’t got a paw to stand on.”
I need a spin off of the adventures of Arthur and Merlin, the cats. I want a short story of Tom and Phil through their eyes. That’ll be wonderful!
It’s been too long since I read it and I don’t remember every detail so I’m leaving this review as is. Nothing to add. I read the series so fast that in my mind they’re one huge book. I think about Tom all the time. Just give me more books about him!
