Product Description

Crime and Poetry #1, in the Magical Bookshop Mystery series, by Amanda Flower

There’s something simply magical about Charming Books.  More than the magical charm of the village where it’s nestled – Cascade Springs, NY.  More than the charm of its slightly eccentric owner – Daisy Waverly.  Or of the granddaughter she tricked into returning home – Violet.  No, at Charming Books, the books choose their buyers…and even have the ability - with help - to predict death and identify murderers.  It’s a good thing…because there’s a murder to be solved!

Publisher's Description

From Amanda Flower—who writes the national bestselling Amish Quilt Shop Mysteries as Isabella Alan—comes the first in the new Magical Bookshop Mystery series.

Rushing home to sit by her ailing grandmother’s bedside, Violet Waverly is shocked to find Grandma Daisy the picture of perfect health. Violet doesn’t need to read between the lines: her grandma wants Violet back home and working in her magical store, Charming Books. It’s where the perfect book tends to fly off the shelf and pick you...

Violet has every intention to hightail it back to Chicago, but then a dead man is discovered clutching a volume of Emily Dickinson’s poems from Grandma Daisy’s shop. The victim is Benedict Raisin, who recently put Grandma Daisy in his will, making her a prime suspect. 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...

    The reason I am writing this is to let others know that this is not a Christian book in that there is no reference to the Lord. There is one reference to praying and that was over a dead person. There is nothing about relying on your faith except a reference to faith in magic which is against all the teaching in the Bible.

    Also the main character lies through most of the book as one of her main character qualities. She does not act as a Christian since she disobeys authority constantly.

    The book is entertaining and interesting, but it is sad the author had to write it devoid of Christian principles.

    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.

    This is a very enjoyable book from the beginning to the end. Whimsical and witty characters, 'magic' bookstore with a tree in the center. It's just a fun read even though it is a murder/mystery, it has a lot of laugh out loud moments. Can't wait for book #2!!

    What a great little book (little because of its smaller size). I was drawn into the story from the first page and had a hard time putting it down until it was finished. You thought you could figure out where the story was headed, but aha you were wrong. I loved this book. It took me somewhere different and included a cast of animal characters along with a wonderful variety of people. This book will be kept for another read in future years.
