Series: Book 2, Chintz n China
Summary: Tarot cards seldom lie. So when they predict chaos and bad luck for her last client of the day, Emerald gets more than a little worried. He leaves behind a charming jade statue of a dragon--but promptly dies in a hit-and-run accident outside of her shop. When other terrible things begin to plague Em and her family, the only explanation is the jade dragon. To thwart its evil spell, she'll have to follow a trail of heartache all the way back to China's Ming Dynasty--and its ancient--and sometimes harsh--mysteries. (Taken from Goodreads)
Thoughts: I've been reading a few heavy fantasy books lately so I was wanting to read something a little more light and fun so I decided it was time to pick up the second book in Yasmine Galenorn's Chintz n China mysteries series.
I went into this book expecting a light and fun mystery with a slight paranormal aspect and that's exactly what I got. The mystery in this one was quite interesting as it was more to do with bad things happening to Emerald and her family. I had my guesses about who was behind it all and I have to say that my guesses were correct which was awesome. In books like these I find guessing is half the fun.
I did find that some of the things Emerald did were a little annoying. Just the way that she treated some of her friends and stuff but that was just a minor thing.
Overall, I had a lot of fun reading Legend of the Jade Dragon and would love to read more in the series. Unfortunately, I think this could be a difficult task as the books don't appear to be in any of the bookstores I normally frequent. That being said I'll definitely be keeping an eye out for the rest of the series.
