Overview

Darcy Sweet would like to think that she is just an ordinary woman, happy in her life running the Sweet Read bookstore. But she isn't ordinary. She has a connection to the other side that seems to draw her into mysterious situations more often than not. Add to the mix the antics of a rather naughty, slightly psychic cat and the eccentric ghost of her great-aunt Millie, and you have a recipe for anything but the ordinary.

When Darcy's neighbor is murdered she is drawn into the mystery against her will when she finds the body. She tries to leave the investigation to the police, one of which is her sister, but an overheard conversation and a small nudge from the other side has her investigating the murder. The stakes are raised when the murderer strikes again. Who was killing the people in her life?

Things are complicated even more by her building attraction to her sister's new cop partner, who makes it clear he does not appreciate Darcy's interference in the investigation. Sparks fly between the two of them as they get further into the mystery surrounding the deaths.

With a town full of suspects how will Darcy work out who the murderer is? None of the pieces to the puzzle fit. Things become more complicated and dangerous as Darcy's own life is threatened. Will she survive to see justice served?

    Good story!

    I liked this book but I'll call it a story due to the length. It was only 101 pages on my nook (and my font is kinda big). That said- it was enjoyable. The characters were likeable and the storyline was interesting. I would purchase more in this series.

    If you want a good fast book to read I would recommend this book.

    This is a good short story, it's about 101 pages. Darcy is a fun, quirky woman who owns a bookstore and is set on finding the murderer of a friend on her own.

    Nancy Drewish

    Very child-like. The police are on the job, but "She knew she had to solve it herself." Darcy thinks her friend's boss is mean for making her friend work nights and Saturdays, Darcy has teenagers work her shop so she can attend the big festival.

    Well, is 'mehh' a word?

    I don't know what I was expecting. Maybe a humorous, simple little mystery to pass the time and get my mind off a different series? Well, I guess the kindest thing to say is that I was left pretty underwhelmed and unimpressed.

    I can justify this opinion. I'm not a hater. As a writer myself, I completely understand and respect the effort other authors put into their work. But I do feel the need to be honest in this case.

    The writing was simplistic and underdeveloped. This really read like a fan fiction about a book I'd never read before. Granted, a fairly good fan fiction, but fanfic all the same.

    Let's not forget Darcy, our shining protagonist. The only thing that reminded me that she was an adult- and not a 16 year old- was the fact that she had an ex-husband. And that's about it. She came off as not overly bright, very impulsive, and immature. Her oh-so-secretive medium powers were pretty much unexplained and left on the back burner until she needed a clue, because everything else she tried was useless. Not to mention she had the emotional capacity of a TV remote. Really, her friend is shot to death and life goes on the next day without a hitch. Except, all of a sudden, she wants to solve her murder. Was she sad? Devastated? Noo. Her ex gets killed, and she hardly bats an eye. Good grief, I'd think she was some kind of narcissistic sociopath were it not for the fact that she's basically just a one-dimensional, fourteen year old heroine in the body of a twenty-something year old. Seriously, 'It's so bad that these other people are committing crimes, but I can break into everybody and their brother's house cuz it's in the name of justice!' Really? Breaking and entering is a crime too. Her cop crush technically should have arrested her as well.

    Speaking of the romance, mehhhh. It felt like a crush between teenagers, but that really wasn't a surprise. Jon was bland and the typical mysterious, hot love interest. The romance wasn't deep at all, and, aside from the "butterflies" and tingly hand touching crap *eye roll*, there was no reason for them to even like each other.

    *sigh* This review is coming off so mean. I'll just bring it to a close with this. It. Was. Not. Horrible. It was very fan fictiony, but not the absolute worst and the storyline wasn't bad. A little predictable, but there were enough suspects to keep it from becoming too dull. The characters all came off as one-dimensional, sadly. I had no emotional attachment to any of them. They didn't feel alive to me. Most of them were so easy to forget, I could hardly remember who she was talking about when they came back on scene. Overall, the book was like a rough draft that needs some tender love and care to be truly enjoyable.

    So so

    The characters and setting are pleasant and it is a light murder mystery. But the things that Darcy does is a bit unbelievable and the arrests make no sense. Towards the end it really like she just wanted to end it and quickly finished it. Plus the romance relationship feels off. Needed to spend more time writing this novel.
