Some Like it Hot

Corpse in the Crystal Ball by Kari Lee Townsend
Sunshine Meadows speaks out about the weather

Some like it hot...or so I've been told. I, however, am not one of them. We live in upstate New York, for crying out loud. We get lots of snow and plenty of lake effect. I like summer just as much as the rest of the folks in Divinity, but this latest heat wave is for the birds. The birds down south, that is.

Don't get me wrong. I love taking a nice little vacation down south in the middle of the winter, but I just can't take this intense heat. If I could, then I would have moved to Florida instead of Divinity.

I bet you're thinking someone like Detective Grumpy Pants Stone would be the one bothered by the heat, not someone like me with a name like Sunny.


He just wipes his brow, gives me a smirk, and carries on about his day, ignoring the sauna we're living in. Ugh. How, people? I don't get it. I am the one who's grumpy these days. Even Morty and Granny Gert have decided to stear clear of me. I can't say that I blame them.

So tell me...what do you do to cool off when the weather is anything but divine and hot enough to commit murder? Desperate minds want to know.

To find out more about Kari and all of her books go to


  1. I stay indoors with the a/c on. If I have to venture out, I make sure my destination is cooler than outside.

  2. This is off topic, but I just wanted to say I just finished reading Corpse in the Crystal Ball. Sunny is a wonderful character whose Granny Gert adds a wonderful comic touch. Hope there are many more books in the series.

  3. Ice cream! Incredible amounts of that wonderful stuff are being consumed!

  4. Great ideas, guys :-) And thanks, llk10! I love my Granny Gert who happens to be based off my author's "real life" Grandmother Gertrude.
