Harrison Black¿s great-aunt Belle has died and left him her candle shop, At Wick¿s End. He knows nothing about candlemaking. She also left him River¿s Edge, the building that At Wick¿s End and other shops and businesses reside in, as well as her apartment on the 2nd floor. Harrison has held many dead-end jobs and is happy to stop selling computers to begin a new chapter in his life. It appears that Belle accidentally fell off a ladder. Eve, Belle¿s assistant and friend, does not know why Belle would have been on a ladder. She says that Belle was afraid of heights. So, Harrison begins to wonder if foul play could be involved. Then her apartment is broken into before he can even move in. Eve begins teaching Harrison all about candlemaking and running the shop. Good thing because he has a very important client come in wanting classes who will only work with the proprietor. Harrison starts looking into why someone would have wanted a harmless old lady dead. Everyone becomes a suspect until he can get to know them and find out if they have an alibi or motive. And believe me, there are some real characters to investigate. Many things begin to happen. Some of them are good, but many of them are upsetting and or bad. To attempt to prove his theory, he has to put himself in danger. The characters are well written and the plot is very well developed with plenty of red herrings to keep you guessing. This is a great new series by Mr. Myers. I have always enjoyed his lighthouse series. This is a great new addition to the cozy mystery genre. I highly recommend this book and can¿t wait to read about more escaped into candlemaking and sleuthing with Harrison!

I have to say, that Tim Myers is now on my 'Favorite Author' list!! I loved this book from page one to the very end. The story line, & wonderful characters, reach out & grab you by the collar & don't let go until you've read the very last page!!! Tim Myers makes you feel like you are living inside the mystery story, feeling & thinking the thoughts of the characters. I actually wanted to sit down on the steps with Harrison, the main character, & eat one of Millies sandwiches. I also enjoyed all the info on candle making, which is truly an art. This series, is a 'MUST READ'!! My only regret is, that Tim Myers can't write FASTER!!! Hey buddy, SPEED IT UP!! Hehe!! You won't want to miss reading his books, he's a great author who makes you feel like you've come home in his stories. :)

Harrison's great-aunt has died, and she left Harrison her candle shop. Harrison knows nothing about the business, but while trying to figure it out, he also figures out that his great-aunt was murdered. I like the character but the plot could have been better.

Bell Black knows who robbed the jewelry store and murdered the owner. She confronts him with his crime after she hides the jewel he dropped. She asks him to give himself up before she turns him in, but he kills her after she refused to give him the diamond with his fingerprint on it. The culprit makes it seem as if she had an accident while climbing up a ladder to get inventory.................................. Harrison Black is shocked to learn his Great Aunt Belle has died and that she left her candle making shop At Wick¿s End to him along with River¿s Edge, the shopping complex where the store is located. Almost from the very beginning he doesn¿t think Belle¿s death is an accident and since the police can¿t be bothered, Harrison sets up a trap that almost makes him the killer¿s next victim....................................... Before Harrison got his inheritance he was a drifter going from job to job living to find a career that satisfied him. When he inherits AT WICKS END he learns the business and finds for the first time in his life he¿s contented. He¿s motivated to learn the ins and outs of the business and the audience sees a maturity in him that wasn¿t there at the beginning of the story. Tim Myers¿ new amateur sleuth series is a smashing successful debut............................... Harriet Klausner
