A Charming Crime

Magical Cures Mystery, #1

June Heal had her father die when she was young, her quirky mother pass away recently and now the building when she creates homeopathic remedies to sell at the local flea market has blown up. When June is invited to set up shop in neighboring Whispering Falls, she feels it's a great step. But quickly June becomes enmeshed in not only the mystery of her past, but also a magically perplexing murder. Can June, her hunky best friend turned cop, and her enigmatic cat Prince Charming figure out what's going on, and keep June alive long enough to see it through to the end?

I have to say I wasn't completely enthralled with this book. The plot and character development didn't flow smoothly, with the novel containing huge leaps that kept me from becoming engrossed in the story. As a fast read, it wasn't bad, I just wouldn't have wanted to invest more time into the book.

Book Blurb for A Charming Crime

Bubble... Bubble...

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.

Magic stirs...

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.
