Harrison Black, owner of At Wick¿s End, decides to have a table at the Founder¿s Day celebration in New Conover, NC, to try to increase his business in the face of possibly being run out of business. Gretel Barnett has recently opened Flickering Lights and had vowed to put At Wick¿s End out of business. At the Founder¿s Day celebration, Harrison doesn¿t hear the shot that kills Gretel, but he is soon the prime suspect of the shooting. Although Harrison would rather leave the investigating to the police, he is soon pulled in to help clear his name. In the process he gets pulled in deeper and deeper. Can he uncover the killer and save At Wick¿s End? I thought was a great installment in the candlemaking series. I really like Harrison Black. I don¿t know anything about candlemaking, so I always feel like I learn something when I read the books in this series. This cozy series is wonderfully set in a small town. The author has captured the feel of a southern small town. The interaction between Harrison and Eve, his employee who was thrust upon him when he inherited At Wick¿s End, is progressing at a very believable pace. I look forward to reading more in this series. I highly recommend this book.

In New Conover, North Carolina is the home of Harrison Black the owner of the candle making store At Wick¿s End and the business complex it is located in River¿s Edge. He is finally starting to show a profit when Gretel Barnett opened Flickering Lights in Micah¿s Ridge only two miles way. To drum up new business, Harrison decides to have a booth at the New Conover Founder¿s Day Fair. --- He sees Gretel there and the two get into an argument before retiring to their respective booths. When Harrison takes a lunch break, he walks near Gretel¿s booth at the same time someone shoots her. When the wife of the town¿s newspaper editor accuses of him of killing Gretel going so far as to say she saw him get rid of the gun, Harrison becomes the police¿s number one suspect. Besides the damage to his reputation, business at the store drops forcing Harrison to conduct his own investigation to clear his name and win back his customers. --- This regional cozy is a brilliantly constructed who-done-it as the killer hides in plain sight while Harrison tries to clear his name and that of the police¿s other suspect. Besides excellent storytelling that makes for a good reading experience, readers learn a lot about candle making and life in a small southern town. Tim Myers, nominated for an Agatha award, is a talented writer who deserves to hit the bestseller lists. --- Harriet Klausner
