Book Description

***2013 eFestival of Words Fantasy Novel Winner from USA Today Bestseller Tonya Kappes***

Bubble... Bubble...

June Heal has nothing to lose when she relocates her homeopathic cure shop, A Dose of Darla, from the flea market booth in her home town, to a quaint shop in the cozy but unusual little town of Whispering Falls, Kentucky. Or so it seems.

Cures and trouble...

Whispering Falls has a lot of secrets. From talking snow globes to whispering animals not to mention a few sprinkles of fairy dust, June realizes Whispering Falls is more magical than she thought. . .literally.

Magic stirs...

June discovers she was born into a family of psychics, and her homeopathic cures truly are magical. Unfortunately, they are not magical enough to save her from being the number one murder suspect when a member of the community that she had just had a disagreement with shows up face down in the lake with June’s lucky charm in the victim’s grasp.

And troubles double...

Add to that an attraction to her high school best friend, Sheriff Oscar Park and Mr. Prince Charming, her cat, is stealing charms from Belle’s Baubles, June is forced to clear her name in more ways than murder. After all, they don’t have cauldrons in jail.

A Charming Crime is book one of the bestselling Magical Cures Mystery series. Come walk around Whispering Falls for a fun, fantasy mystery with magic and romance. You won't want to leave.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great for all ages!!!! July 31, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
First thoughts after
More please! Do Oscar and June end up together???? Cliff hanger galore! I want more!!! Please Tonya?? LOL
How Distracted Did I Get?
June is smart and sarcastic with an addiction to Ding Dongs! (I'm not sure I've ever had one. Note to self, look in the grocery store for Ding Dongs and find out how good they are.) She is the only suspect in a murder investigation that her bff is running. With no one to trust or turn to, she starts her own investigation to clear herself. With laugh out loud scenes and can't put it down suspense A Charming Crime is the perfect read for summer you get a little bit of everything but romance. (Crossing fingers for the next book)

A Charming Crime is a wonderful book for men, women and teens! A MUST for your TBR pile!

5.0 out of 5 stars Too Cute! September 6, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Despite some grammatical errors and strangely ending sentences (not too many though so it wasn't terribly distracting), this book was a really fun read. I loved the story with all it's magical elements and especially loved the cat! I wish I could live in the town "Whispering Pines" or at least visit it. So anyway, even though it could maybe use a little editing, I still give it 5 stars for the clever and magical story line. Can't wait for the next book in the series.

My only problem with this book, is we didnt get enough of the other characters. They sort of showe up for a few paragraphs or chapters but didnt really click. That said, I really did enjoy the book and the story line.

I am looking forward to reading more about this village.

5.0 out of 5 stars What a charming book May 18, 2013
By NJM
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
One more of the really good books that came to me via Book Bub. This was an easy read, charming story, I really enjoyed it very much and will read more by the author. The author probably won't like the comparison but it was on the line of the first Harry Potter books, fanciful and fun to read.

What a great first book!!! You never knew who was good and who was evil. It took me most *ok, all* of the book to figure out who the villan was. It was such an easy read I couldn't put it down. Now it's on to the next one in the series.
