A Charming Crime was interesting and it has some potential.

This first book in the Magical Cures Mystery series was a crazy irritating mystery mess. I felt like I was being thrown all over the place with all the different information coming at me all at once.

Our heroine June was frustrating as a character and all she eats are Ding Dongs. All most every page the author has her picking up a Ding Dong to eat. She’s bothered, lets have her eat a Ding Dong. She’s feeling overwhelmed, lets have her eat a Ding Dong. Does this girl not eat anything else?

June also finds her mother, Darla’s Diary. Does June sit down and read it? Nope. This Diary has a tone of information in it about Whispering Falls, Junes magical abilities, and more. If she had read it, well she would have been better prepared for the weirdness of Whispering Falls.

Then we have the town, Whispering Falls, that is a magical community only for magical people to live in. Ok, so this town sounds cool, but they have all these weird ass laws. They where coming at me left and right and I couldn’t keep up with them. June was given a packet to read about the town and their laws, which she had to sign, and she never sat down and read it. By the end of the story the town is going to change some of the laws. Which is good and for the better, but it felt like the author wanted the storyline to go one way and for it to do that she had to change her laws. Didn't feel well thought out on the authors part.

Last, the murder mystery investigation. Why was her friend, Oscar, who is the police officer of Whispering Falls not investigating? Why was June running around doing the investigation? And, last I have to mention her plan to catch the killer was not thought out. I shook my head at her plan…

All I wanted was a fun paranormal cozy mystery to dive into and A Charming Crime left me feeling frustrated with everything. This book was not for me. If the blurb intrigues you, I urge you to give it a shot. Just because it did not work for me does not mean it won’t for you.

Rated: 2 Stars

I did like this one - more like a 3.5 rating. Light, cozy mystery with a bit of romance and a healthy dose of magic. 'A Charming Cure' is next in the series ( )

June is a young gifted herbalist who has taken over where her mother, Darla, left off...

After June's workshop burns down, she moves to a local magical village and takes over her mother's former shop & home.

Weird things happen, threats, murder, and June seems to be the main suspect.

I never warmed up to the main character, June.... I wanted more: the plot premise is very similar to Heather Blake's "Wishcraft" mysteries, but this is seriously lacking depth of character development, ambiance, & dialog.

I understand that this particular book is the first in a series, so I'm going to try reading another to see if there is any improvement..... ( )
