"A Karma Crime mystery debuts with Body of Intuition from Claire Daniels, best known as Jaqueline Girdner. This wonderful debut introduces recovering attorney and alternative healer Cally Lazar reading murderous auras at a New Age seminar with the help of her keen sensory skills and her cane. Always enjoyable and ever-fresh characterizations make entertaining mystery reading from a pro."
-Mary Alice Goldman and Richard Goldman, Mystery Scene

"Body of Intuition is an excellent first outing for Cally Lazar. The mystery is tough to solve, the characters refreshing, and the setting is unique. With humor leading the way, as well as Cally's grit and unusual method of swearing, I am glad I got to meet her. Claire Daniels starts off her new series with a bang, and I look forward to the next in the series!"
-Tracy Farnsworth, Mysterious Corner, The Romance Reader's Connection

"Hilarious and outrageous are words that come to mind in trying to describe this tale. Alternative medicine could have taken a real beating as a form of therapy, but it holds up quite well as a credible modality. It is the denizens of the story that provide the fodder for laughter. Their interactions with each other add fuel to a smoldering fire bursting with the colors Cally sees emanating from each body.

"This is the first Claire Daniels novel, but not the first book produced by the owner of this pseudonym. Her wry wit shines through with entertaining clarity. The tone is conversational, almost as if Cally were sitting at my dinner table telling a grand story.

"Murder is no laughing matter, but in Claire Daniels' capable hands, catching a murderer has never been so amusing."
-Sandie Herron, I Love A Mystery Newsletter
