    Enchanting, Magic

    This is the first book in a new series by Ellery Adams. It was just as enchanting to read as is looking at the cover of the book. We get to meet four powerful, and damaged women living in Miracle Springs, North Carolina. A town known where people travel cot for healing. When a man is found dead these four women decide cot search for answers and the truth. I have read Ellery Adams other series and love them, but this to me is her best. A story how very different individuals can form friendships. I voluntarily reviewed an Advanced Reader Copy of this book.

    Great characters!

    The Secret, Book and Scone Society by Ellery Adams is the first book in Miracle Springs, North Carolina series. Nora Pennington owns Miracle Books in Miracle Springs, North Carolina. The town is known to be a place of healing and Nora is known locally as a bibliotherapist. A man in the park wishes Nora‘s help, so she suggests that he pick up a comfort scone from Gingerbread House and come to her shop. Before he can get to Nora for assistance, Neil Parrish is found dead on the train tracks. When the police rule it a suicide, Nora along with Estella, June and Hester form The Secret, Book and Scone Society. Their purpose is get the truth about the man’s demise. They delve into Neil’s life to uncover what could have gotten him killed. They knew he came to town ahead of his partner’s and he was wrestling with a problem. When the four ladies meet to discuss what they have uncovered, each member of the group reveals the secret that brought them to Miracle Springs. These four women band together to get justice for one man and find themselves embroiled in a corruption scandal. The best thing to come out of this is four lone woman find friendship, love and acceptance. The Secret, Book and Scone Society is well-written and engaging. My attention was captured right away with Nora’s description. I found the four main characters to be personable yet flawed from life’s tragedy. They were fleshed out and given life—very realistic. Each one is unique. There are also some characters (namely Sheriff Todd Hendricks) that readers will really dislike and wish to maim. I did not like how the police treated women in this book (I know it was part of the story, but it was offensive). I liked the description of the town, the Gingerbread House, Nora’s home (it is in a red train caboose) and, most especially, Miracle Books. My rating for The Secret, Book and Scone Society is 4 out of 5 stars (I liked it). The book contained more cozy elements than mystery. I was hoping for a more complex whodunit (like is Ms. Adams Murder in the Mystery Suite). I did like the authors use of misdirection in this book.

    A lovely surprise

    I got this book as a freebie so I really had little expectation. But I was delighted to be so wrong. I thoroughy enjoyed this book which is charmingly written, has believable characters and is not ruined by contrived sentimentality. Adams clearly has a passion and conviction in her work which injects a refreshing perspective into the purpose of storytelling.
