About the Author
Carol E. Ayer has wanted to be a writer since she first taught herself to read at age four. She memorized the typewriter keyboard at age eight, knowing that writers had to learn how to type. Her first rejection slips came in around the same time, when she submitted short stories and a novel to various publications. Rather than dampen her enthusiasm, the rejections fueled her desire to continue writing. She's had better luck as an adult. (Even though she still gets rejected!) Some of her successes include short stories published by Woman's World, I Love Cats, and True Story, among others. The Princess and the Poison is her first published full-length novel. Carol is a lifelong fan of storybook parks, a love that originated when she visited Children's Fairyland in Oakland, California countless times as a child. She worked at Fairyland in the 1980s and is proud to say that the park later inspired several works of fiction, including The Princess and the Poison. Carol currently lives in Northern California with her cat, Sammie.

I guess if you can believe anyone would face a murder without weapon or back-up, you might enjoy this book. I found it quite unbelievable, which was too bad, as some of the plot was interesting.
This gets a two stars on a mystery evaluation, two on writing style, but three for a clever idea.
even so looking forward to reading the next one!
I struggled a bit to get through this book, but the ending was very exciting. It was fast paced and I couldn’t stop reading.
I liked Ashling, but she seemed a little depressing, but I still rooted for her. Her love interest Scott seemed nice but I would like a bit more of him in the next book since he wasn’t around much. It made it hard to gage him very well.
I love the idea of StoryWorld. The amusement park that Ashling runs. It sounds fun. I love fairy tales so it would be my fantasy to work at a place like that. I can picture it in my head very clearly.
The mystery was good. It kept me guessing the whole time. I did have a suspicion of who the killer could be, but I wasn't sure. Turns out I was right, but funnily enough I thought of that person for the wrong reasons. It was gut instinct I guess lol
If you like fairy tales and cozy mysteries then this is the book for you.
I really enjoyed The Princess and the Poison. It was a fun mystery to read. There are many twists, turns, hurdles and obstacles that take place. This is a fast moving mystery and really worth it to read.

This mystery is a little unique in the fact that it uses a storybook theme park as the setting.Read more
