If you are looking for a nice cozy mystery, try Yasmine Galenorn’s Chintz’n China series. The characters are warm and entertaining, and the mystery has enough suspense to keep you interested. This series does have some paranormal aspects, but really just a touch here and there. If I am craving a mystery, this is always the series I turn to first. I love the homey feel that Galenorn creates in her stories as well as the mystery that takes me all around her small town, and at times Washington.
Legend of the Jade Dragon is the second book in the series. It seems like Emerald has had nothing but bad luck after she witnesses a hit-and-run that resulted in the death of a mysterious customer who gave her a jade dragon statue. In order to keep her family safe, Emerald must get to the bottom of the mystery and find out how the dragon plays into her bad luck streak.
