A Charming Crime by Tonya Kappes is the first book in the new “Magical Cures” mystery series. June 2012

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.

June thought she knew her life, that is until she discovers Whispering Falls. In this magical delightful tale, June becomes the primary suspect in the death of a woman she recently met. In order to prove her innocence, June uncovers a mysterious past that exposes a killer and open the doors to an enchanting future. This fast-pace and finely crafted whodunit was a fun read that I enjoyed immensely. A good page-turner that kept me guessing throughout most of the story features a quirky cast of characters that are lovable from June to Eliose to Mr. Prince Charming. I love the village of Whispering Falls and I look forward to more mystical adventures with June and her friends in this charming series.
