  • I’m under Carmel’s spell!

    Courtney Kelly and her fairy Fiona are making fairy gardens for an upcoming charity fund raiser. All is calm and peaceful in the shop until they hear shouting outside and go to see what the problem is. They find two locals, Wanda, her BFF’s mother and art rep, and Lana, an art critic going at each other. Courtney hoses Lana down to get her to cool off and end the fight, but something is off in Carmel. At the charity event, Lana is found murdered with Wanda hovering over her body, setting Wanda up as the prime suspect in Lana’s murder. Courtney and Fiona don’t believe Wanda is the killer, as do many other locals, but the police need facts and evidence, not character references. Courtney and Fiona are on the case and vow to get the evidence the police need to clear Wanda and find Lana’s killer. If only they can do it without getting in a pickle and having the killer make Courtney the next target. I adore Carmel by the Sea and the enchanting cottages that are part of the fabric. This series is magical and feeds my soul when I am longing to travel and spend time there again. Daryl Wood Gerber is a master story teller and every single one of her books immerses me in her story telling, the setting and the mystery. With plenty of red herrings to keep you on your toes, you will never be disappointed with any of her series. If you have not yet read her work, be prepared to binge on all of her other series an entries as well…and be waiting with bated breath for her next entry.

  • A Glimmer Of A Clue!

    I absolutely loved this whimsical story. Courtney, the main character, is a kind and intelligent amateur sleuth/store owner who has a fairy to help her solve mysteries. The setting is very well described, I would love to visit there and wander through the courtyards and stores looking for a glimmer of a fairy. The plot is filled with unique characters, and red herrings that will make figuring out whodunit a real challenge. The ending surprised me. I recommend this book to anyone who loves a great light-hearted mystery. I received an advanced reader's copy from NetGalley in exchange for my honest review.

  • Cute and Cozy

    What's not to like! You have Fairies, you have a charming garden and tea shop....with more fairies, you have lots of cute animals, and you have a cozy mystery. I loved this book! What a great second chapter in the Fairy Garden Mysteries! I was happy to get more a more in depth background on the resident fairies and more information on the people around Courtney Kelly's shop. The fact that she keeps running into dead people just keeps you on your toes! AND...Is there a romance in the offing? I certainly hope so!! The mystery was quite well done and I wasn't sure 'who done it' until the murderer was revealed. A wonderful book for a few hours in your warm backyard with some lemonade or possibly a glass on wine. A satisfying read.

    Thanks for your feedback!

  • An enchanting cozy mystery!

    A Glimmer of a Clue by Daryl Wood Gerber is the 2nd book in A Fairy Garden Mystery series. It can be read as a standalone if you have not indulged in A Sprinkling of Murder. I thought A Glimmer of a Clue was well-written with developed, engaging characters. Courtney Kelly owns Open Your Imagination where people can create fairy gardens. The author’s vivid word imagery allows me to envision the shop, the charming fairy gardens, the town, and the characters. I especially enjoyed the various fairy gardens created. I loved the different themes and the gardens created in the teacups. It gave me some ideas for a fairy garden of my own that I am eager to try out. The mystery was entertaining. Wanda finds herself arrested for the murder of Lana Lamar. Wanda has been a second mother to Courtney and her daughter, Meaghan is Courtney’s best friend. Courtney is naturally going to investigate. She is observant and picks up on details. Courtney has help from her fairy, Fiona as well as Meaghan. Other residents plus gossip help fill in gaps. There are several good suspects since Lana was not liked (with good reason). I wish I had not been able to pinpoint the killer so early in the book (I like more of a challenge). It did not, though, detract from my enjoyment of this spellbinding cozy mystery. A Glimmer of a Clue is a fun and relaxing tale to read. There are delicious food items created throughout the book and the author kindly included recipes at the end. I like that Courtney creates her dishes with fresh herbs she grows in her kitchen. I loved the reference to one of my favorite cozy mystery series when Courtney mentions to Didi that she knows a bookbinder in San Francisco (Brooklyn Wainwright). Pickleball has become a popular sport and I thought the author provided clear explanations of the game. It is certainly a competitive game especially when Lana Lamar is playing. I am looking forward to reading A Hint of Mischief next summer. A Glimmer of a Clue is an enchanting cozy mystery with fairy garden fun, delectable delights, pickle ball play, aggressive arguments, and flitting fairies.

  • Loved it!

    fairies, small-business, small-town, family-dynamics, friendship, murder, murder-investigation, amateur-sleuth, situational-humor, verbal-humor***** If you like the idea of friendly fairies helping to solve a cozy mystery, you'll love this! No problem figuring out who the victim will be. The murderer not so much! The characters are fun, the investigation twisty, and the red herrings surprising. I enjoyed the afternoon I spent reading it. I requested and received a free temporary ebook copy from Kensington Books via NetGalley.

    Thanks for your feedback!
