This is a wonderful new series by Amanda Flower and this book will be on my list of most favorite books. Amanda Flower has created a magical world that draws you in and captivates with each turn of the page. The characters are vibrant and full of life, the reader is given a sense of who they really are.
This story begins when Violet rushes home to Cascade Springs to be with her ailing grandmother, Daisy. Much to Violet’s shock, Grandma Daisy is fine and not sick at all. Grandma Daisy explains it was the only way she knew to get Violet to come home, something Violet swore she would never do when she left.
Violet isn’t home for long when the gentleman Grandma Daisy has been seeing shows up in front of the house dead. The police suspect Grandma Daisy of murder bringing back horrible memories for Violet. Violet sets out to solve the murder before Grandma Daisy is found guilty.
There is plenty of mystery, suspense and magical moments. The animals in the book are quite entertaining, especially Faulkner, the crow and Emerson, the tuxedo cat who helps in the sleuthing. There are plenty of secrets and several twists in the story that will keep the reader guessing. This is terrific new series and I can’t wait to read the more!
I received an advanced reader’s copy from the publisher, via NetGalley in exchange for an honest reveiw.
