    A Good Start to a New Cozy Mystery Series!

    After her father’s fatal car accident and her fiancé’s murder, Addie Greyborne decides to move and open up a bookshop in a small New England town. Addie’s great aunt has left her a mansion and an inheritance to help her renew her life. But, then a car tries to run Addie down, a copy of Alice in Wonderland is stolen from her store and a local merchant is murdered. Addie’s new friend, Serena, is arrested for the murder and Addie decides to investigate and find the secret behind all of the strange occurrences. This was a good start to a cozy mystery series. I genuinely liked the characters, especially Addie. She gave me hope, personally, because she had so much pain and loss in her life, and she was able to change and find renewal. I loved that there were people around her that had her back. The mystery plot felt a little muddled to me because it seemed as if too much was going on. On top of that, the copious amount of suspects confused me even more. Still, I would love to read the next installment in the series. I received an Advanced Reader Copy of this book from NetGalley and am voluntarily reviewing it.

    Fabulous from beginning to end

    The first book in a series and it literally sucked me in from beginning to end!! I can't believe how well-developed everything was and how realistic the characters were. The way the events that led to Addie's moving were intertwined in the story were unexpected and fabulous. There were no draggy bits while you caught back up with something or were prepared for something else; this was so seamlessly integrated that you were along for the ride and never got kicked out of the story over the little things. I think I still have a bit of a book hangover from this and I'm well into another story. I cannot wait to stalk the very next book in this series. Grab this as soon as you can and be prepared to enjoy a lovely adventure. Thank you to Kensington Books, Lauren Elliott, and NetGalley for allowing met the chance to read this story and share my honest thoughts and opinions with others.

    A fantastic debut in a new series!

    Addie Greyborne has inherited the estate of a great aunt she does not remember. The timing is good for Addie as she has suffered quite a few losses in a short time and the prospect of starting over in a new town was timely. Realizing she's not cut out for a life of leisure, Addie decides to open her own shop and become part of the town. She quickly finds out that she is the last in the line of the town's founding family, though not everyone is welcoming her with open arms. When strange things begin to happen and bodies begin piling up, Addie is cast as being a poor addition to the community. While a few locals and business owners are bend on running her out of town, others welcome her with both arms open. While she wants to settle in, she will first have to figure out what her aunt left behind that is causing the body count to rise. New England is always a beautiful setting for a series and the characters in this story are a perfect fit for it. There is a lot of hurt that must be overcome on the parts of several characters, but it shows their human side and is relatable as we have all been hurt at one time or another. I'm looking forward to future installments in this series! I have read a few reviews that are extremely negative. While I respect everyone's opinion, I have to wonder if they were reading the same book because some of the flaws that were pointed out weren't even in the book. Perhaps they read an earlier copy that has since been edited.
