It also could have used more editing to correct spelling and grammatical errors. “Shee”, “sac” instead of “sack”, “you’d never knew”, “I grabbed of couple of ingredients”, etc. (To be fair, many correct usages of “blonde” and “its” vs. “it’s” and “déjà vu”.) There are a few problems with continuity, too. E.g., June sits on the couch, and then jumps out of bed.
The book was easy to read except for the above issues; they kept jerking me out of the story. (And I do not LOOK FOR errors – they jump out and are distracting.)
The good part: It was an amusing light story with magic and mystery, and didn’t contain graphic gore like some mysteries do. However, the character portrayals were a bit light and fluffy. And the main character, June Heal, keeps doing things that are really stupid and being rude or cruel. We all occasionally speak or act without thinking, but she does that too much. But, on the whole, I liked this book for times when I want something light rather than deep and meaningful literature. Cute book cover design.
Seriously... what did I just read? Does the author own ding dong stock shares? If so, fail. After reading the word 'ding dong' 36 times in one book, I hope I never see one again.
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.
In A Charming Crime, June Heal, thanks to her mother's journal, develops and sells homeopathic cures at the local flea market. The business, known as A Dose of Darla, is a tradition that she learned from her mother. What she doesn't learn from her mom is a love of Ding Dongs. (Ummm...didn't Hostess just go out of business? This does not bode well for June!)
Now that her mom is gone, she's left with a house, a cat known as Mr. Prince Charming, a qrumpy neighbor named Mac McGurtle, and her best friend, Oscar Park, the local police officer. Little did she know, her life if about to change...and in a really big way.
When a mysterious woman drops by her house after a fire burns down her shed, she gets an offer that she can't refuse and heads towards Whispering Falls to check it out. Upon her arrival she meets a cast of characters that will eventually become her new family. Oscar joins her on this little adventure and becomes the new policeman for the charming little town.
June is not quite sure what to make of this whole thing and before she knows it, everything just seems to magically come together for her to move to this quirky tourist town. All seems to be going pretty well until she finds herself smack dab in the middle of a crime...where she's the primary suspect.
With this in mind, I'll leave the rest of the story for my readers to discover. For someone like myself who has a difficult time going outside her normal reading genres, A Charming Crime by Tonya Kappes is a fun read to get into. The story was not too overwhelmingly complicated and the characters were just quirky enough to keep me interested.
A few things to note: The overuse of the "Ding Dongs" theme (it does get a little old), June's unstoppable nature which makes her a very strong character in my eyes, and of course, the formatting and editing issues (which, by the way, I have yet to see any Kindle book escape from this problem). Overall, this story makes for a great weekend escape, especially if you have the opportunity to read the other books in the series.
