This is the first in a new series of cozy mystery with a healthy dose of magic thrown in. Even if the name does not give it away, the characters and the not-so-subtle conversations fill in that required information.
We have our leading lady called back to her aunt’s bed-and-breakfast after an accident occurs on-site. From that point on, she is surrounded by people who know more than her, none of whom are providing her with information. This basically also means that I cannot elaborate on either the plot or the characters, without giving away anything important.
The writing was good, the plot was something I could get emotionally invested in, but it took too long to get to the point where the information was relevant. It is a testament to how well I got along with the writing that I actually read the whole thing in the time that I did.
I would recommend this as a good book to pick up if you are interested in magically oriented cozy mysteries.
I received an ARC thanks to NetGalley and the publishers, but the review is entirely based on my own reading experience.
