Now, with the help of a tuxedo cat named Emerson, Violet will have to find a killer to keep Grandma from getting booked for good...
I do believe Amanda Flower could be called the queen of cozy mysteries and I am so excited about this new series!!! A bookstore with 'tude, an opinionated cat, a talking crow and a mystery to be solved! Does it get any better than that? Love the town and its eclectic citizens and the history Violet has with them all. Not to mention the Native American police chief. His gentle concern is lost on bulldozer Violet when it comes to mystery solving. David foolishly thinks the detective work should be left to the professional. Poor guy better get used to feeling exasperated at every turn...at least for a few more books because my spidey senses are telling me romance is afoot. A tricky mystery kept me stymied for most of the read. I pretty much suspected everyone by the end! Poor Violet wouldn't have a single friend if she listened to me. I laughed and cringed and gasped out loud. Woot! An amazing debut to the Magical Bookshop Mystery series.
Please note: This isn't a Christian fiction selection. It is a clean read though and a stupendous one!
