Kaleidoscope by Dorothy Gilman

4 stars
sequel to The Clairvoyant Countess

Another enjoyable set of anecdotes... though this one got kind of preachy at the end.  I don't love preachy.

Once again Madame Karitska is helping those seeking her out-- especially Lieutenant Pruden-- and this time she ends up telling fortunes at a carnival, helping investigate a cult, and getting another artist started.

Many characters are back from the first book, naturally.  And many new characters are introduced.

The jump in time is kind of funny.  Both books were written with current events mentioned, and the books take place a year or so apart.  Except that the current events in one are about the Cold War and in this one it's Y2K. lol  (Her Mrs. Pollifax books do the same thing, though.)

Anyway, overall I liked it.  :)
