Read full description of the books:
As a lover of mysteries, magic, and old bookshops, I had to take a few deep breaths to calm my excitement when I found out about Crime and Poetry, the first book in the brand new Magical Bookshop cozy mystery series by Amanda Flowers. It combines those three things I love. But did it live up to my expectations? With the exception of a few cons, the answer is yes.
I'll get the cons out of the way first. Now, this is a cozy mystery, and with that you're going to get a few Hallmark Channel cliches. There's the 20-something female protagonist who returns to her small childhood town despite swearing never to return. There's the Native American police chief named Chief Rainwater who may or may not be a love interest. There's the protagonist's teenage sweetheart who is now mayor and is trying to win her back. And then there's the dead body in a town known for its lack of dead bodies. Also, the killer who's identity you can figure out within the first quarter of the book. These are all things that pop up frequently in cozy mysteries. But honestly, if you are picking up a book like this, odds are you already know all these things and it's just what you're in the mood for. Sometimes, a cute simple story is just what you need.
It was exactly what I needed. It's a charming read and took me no time at all to wade through it. Every time I was away from home, I found myself thinking about this book and wanting to get back so I could dive in again. It wasn't because I had to know who the killer was or anything -- I guessed that right off the bat. It was just the sheer comfort I felt while reading that kept me coming back. Amanda Flowers has a writing style that welcomed me into her comfy little world with open arms. Also, you can't beat an old magical bookshop called Charming Books. What a great setting!
With that being said, I did want a little more magic and a little more bookshop. But still, Crime and Poetry was an enjoyable read. I have already preordered the second book and can't wait to read it when it comes out in December.
