4.8 out of 5 stars on Amazon
Paranormal Cozy Mystery
June Heal has nothing to lose when she relocates her homeopathic cure shop, A Dose of Darla, from the flea market booth in her home town, to a quaint shop in the cozy but unusual little town of Whispering Falls, Kentucky. Or so it seems.
Cures and trouble...
Whispering Falls has a lot of secrets. From talking snow globes to whispering animals not to mention a few sprinkles of fairy dust, June realizes Whispering Falls is more magical than she thought. . .literally.
June discovers she was born into a family of psychics, and her homeopathic cures truly are magical. Unfortunately, they are not magical enough to save her from being the number one murder suspect when a member of the community that she had just had a disagreement with shows up face down in the lake with June’s lucky charm in the victim’s grasp.
And troubles double...
Add to that an attraction to her high school best friend, Sheriff Oscar Park and Mr. Prince Charming, her cat, is stealing charms from Belle’s Baubles, June is forced to clear her name in more ways than murder. After all, they don’t have cauldrons in jail.
Quotes from Reviews:
Looking for a fun and fresh summer read? Look no further than the first Magical Cures mystery, A Charming Crime.
How does one have fun, excitement, mystery, and read at the same time? They read anything by Tonya Kappes. A Charming Crime is a great mystery, a super fun book with characters that will have you chuckling your heart out, and is hard to put down until you have devoured the entire book. Warning - do not read the end first. It's a winner. This should be your first book to read on the beach, but I encourage you to buy all her other books, since you won't be able to put them down.
She had me smiling from page to page. Truly magical, fun, and I can't wait until the next on in the series!
Tonya Kappes is one of my favorite authors and she did not let me down with her latest book. June Heal is a fun and feisty character that I hope we will see again. Whispering Falls is a place you dream of actually visiting and feel like you left old friends when you finish the book. If you are looking for great summer read, this book is a must! A great "who done it " with an end I never saw coming.
GREAT PARANORMAL MYSTERY!!
Absolutely adored this light paranormal mystery! Tonya Kappes really does have a great time with her characters and their quirky sides. I love the fact that June Heal is addicted to old school Ding Dongs in the foil wrapper. She is a charming character that discovers her past is nothing she thought it was. The magical city of Whispering Falls is cozy, magical, and fun. I love how the fireflies are the "teenagers" of the community that stay up all night and sleep all day.
This is different than any other novel she has written and I can't WAIT until the next one in the series!!!
I absolutely loved "A Charming Crime". This is definitely a must read especially if you are a fan of cozy mysteries.
