    WOW!

    WOW!! The Book Of Candlelight is the third book in the Secret, Book, and Scone Society by Ellery Adams. Nora and her friends are strong, flawed and relatable. They support each other. I would love to be part of their group, spend time in the town of Miracle Springs and be able to stroll through Miracle Books. A local artist is found dead and the diary found at the Inn Of Mist and Roses is needed to help Nora and her friends find the guilty person or persons. Love Sheldon and hope he continues to be part of Miracle Springs. A wonderful read that will not disappoint. I received an ARC prior to publication and decided to voluntarily review it. Opinions expressed are my own.

    A Fantastic Instalment!

    The Book of Candlelight is book three in the 'Secret, Book, and Scone Society' series by Ellery Adams. Each book of this series contains it’s own mystery so the instalments can be read as a standalone or in any order. However, some character development carries over from each book. In rainy Miracle Springs, North Carolina bookshop owner Nora Pennington meets a handsome and charming gentleman named Sheldon Silverstein Vega and later discovers the body of a local floating in the Miracle River, after if overflows its banks. There were secrets aplenty in this great cozy. With a unique mystery, an eclectic bunch of characters, a compelling plot and a few red herrings added to the mix, this was a fantastic read that kept me on my toes. While classified as a cozy mystery, this for me, was what I would describe as a more mature and sophisticated cozy than most, as it delves into some more serious topics than usual, though still retaining those traditional cozy qualities. I would like to read the other books in this series as I thoroughly enjoyed this one. Well done Ellery Adams! I received a complimentary digital copy of this novel at my request, from Kensington Books via NetGalley, and this review is my own unbiased opinion.

    Best in Series So Far

    This is the best book in the series so far. I love the way each character has developed throughout the series and that they embraced their own flaws and accepted one another. It is really nice to read about a group of women who accept one another for who they really are and not bring one another down. I really enjoyed the new secondary character, Sheldon. He is really a good fit to work in the book store for Nora. I thought Sheldon’s book display of banned books was wonderful. The storyline of this book will bring out a lot of emotions while you are reading the book you may feel anything from joy to sadness to anger. The mystery is well-plotted with several suspects and several twists and turns along the way. I recommend this book as well as the two previous books in the series. I voluntarily agreed to listen to a copy of this book. All thoughts and opinions are my own and in no way have been influenced by anyone.

    The best of the series, so far!

    This is the *best* book so far in this series! While I love the original characters of the Secret, Book, & Scone Society, I find the addition of Sheldon (think KFC's Colonel) to add an interesting element. Ellery's characters are so real, with their real-life problems. Day after day of rain makes this story even more real to me, living in an area where it can rain for days on end. The genealogical / history element and how it all converges at the end is really intriguing to me. I'm forgetting more than I remember to write here - but I must say, this book had me captivated, one that I couldn't wait to read every night. I cannot WAIT for the next book to see how the new characters all play out. I think you will love this book as much as I did!

    Touches on many societal topics

    Nora Pennington owns the local book store, Miracle Books, and also has a small book club of close friends that call themselves the Secret Book & Scone Society. The society members know each other’s darkest secrets and they also secretly help people in their community who need some support…oh and they help solve local murders. So it’s not any surprise that Nora asks the group to help a young widow who has lost her husband and is newly pregnant. Little did the society know that it would turn into a murder investigation as well. I won’t recap the story as you can read what the publisher has shared. What really made an impression on me is that the author touched on several topics that we don’t often want to address, or at least not in politely company. One was a racial slur word painted on one of the women’s house. The way the author had the characters address it showed the hurt not only for the victim, but her friends and local law enforcement as well. None of them was going to just paint it over and let it go. But the one that really warmed my heart was how she addressed the chronic illness of Sheldon, a new character who has Rheumatoid Arthritis and Fibromyalgia. Having both of these condition myself, I know just how painful they can be and the characters not only showed empathy, but strove to understand how it impacts Sheldon’s day to day life. Bravo! Ellery Adams is one of my go to authors and I never miss a new release from her. As with Sheldon, I read a few books as well, “Books push my pain into the background.” I hope Sheldon is here to stay because he gives me hope and a voice.
