LET'S GET COZY! PROSE AND CONS: A PREVIEW AND GIVEAWAY

GIVEAWAY ENDED
PROSE AND CONS
A Magical Bookshop Mystery
BY AMANDA FLOWER

ABOUT THE BOOK:
Magic, books, and cats collide in a village near Niagara Falls in the latest mystery from the author of Crime and Poetry
 
In Cascade Springs, New York, Violet Waverly and her grandma, Daisy, are the proprietors of Charming Books, where the power of the written word is positively enchanting…

October in Cascade Springs means tourists are pouring in for the annual Food and Wine Festival, and Daisy hopes to draw those crowds to the store. She asks Violet and the local writing group, the Red Inkers, to give a reading of the works of Edgar Allan Poe in the shop’s back garden to entertain the revelers. Everyone eagerly agrees.

Yet their enthusiasm is soon extinguished when Violet discovers one of the writers dead during the event. After the shop magically tells Violet she’ll need to rely on Poe’s works to solve the murder, she enlists the help of her trusty tuxedo cat, Emerson, and the shop’s crow, Faulkner. But they must act fast before someone else’s heart beats nevermore…

I had heard about her giveback program with orders of this new book. She relates that they raised over $5000 for a food pantry in Ohio. How wonderful.

Any cozy that has a cat in it is one that I want to try. I love crows and ravens so that big black bird on the cover just makes it more interesting for me.

The title makes me laugh. I'd love to see how Poe's works help solve this murder. Interesting.
