From the national bestselling author of the Amish Quilt Shop Mysteries comes the first charming caper in the 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...

    This first in a new series is simply magical and charming. The characters are enchanting and keep the reader captivated until the very end. There are several different layers to the story, not just one mystery, but a love triangle, life altering decisions to be made, a scam, and a long ago crime that still needs resolving. I'm quite anxious to read more installments of this new series, as Violet Waverly is going to be a force to be reckoned with, especially for the town mayor, Nathan and Chief of Police, David...not to mention as her abilities continue to evolve as she takes over from her Grandmother Daisy as the Caretaker of Charming Books. This book was provided by Netgalley for my honest review.
