Thought it was cute - though have to wonder what he looks like since he has all these women all over him! He inherited a candle making shop from his great aunt and loves his new life. Things left a little up in the air with some of the characters but overall liked it!

Finished this one almost at midnight, couldn't leave it, had to stay up. I think Mr. Myers saved the most exciting one to the last, it was a great read! I didn't figure this one out...there were new characters involved, but really, for me it's not important to guess who did it, I just enjoy a good book, and this definitely was that! I liked the character of Harrison Black from the get-go, the first book, and have to say that I am sorry to see the end of this series...Mr. Myers if you feel like w ...more

I've been reading this cozy series since I first saw it at the library. LOVE IT! sure, it is a typical theme cozy (in this case, candlemaking, complete with tips.) But there is something about Micah Ridge, the small town our hero Harrison Black lives in now that his great aunt has died and left him not only a candleshop, but an entire artisan mall full of wonderful characters with cool shops. Harrison sticks his nose in where it is not wanted, which gets him into trouble, of course, but just bei ...more

A quick kayak trip down the river behind his shop leads to Harrison finding the body of his ex-girlfriend. With the sheriff determined it was suicide, Harrison sets out to prove it was murder. As much as I love Harrison, the sub-plots took over the story and slowed the book down overall.

Read my full review at Carstairs Considers.

The fourth book in the Candlemaking series starts with Harrison enjoying a relaxing trip in his kayak on the Gunpowder River, only what he things is a tree stump he bumps in the water turns out to be his former girlfriend.

While the police are sure it was a suicide, Harrison is sure it wasn't, and with the help of his good friend Markum, he sets out to figure out what happened.

This is another good read in this series, introducing us to some new people, letting us learn more about some of the peop
The beginning sentence drew me right in: "As my kayak brushed against the woman's body, I thought I'd hit another half-submerged log." Thus begins a very bad day for poor Harrison Black, owner of a quaint little candle shop, who soon discovers that the body belongs to his ex-girlfriend.

I picked up this book because (1) it's a cozy mystery, which I like, and (2) I have a book coming out in June 2009 that is centered around a candle factory, and I wanted to see how much candle lore the author rel

I enjoyed the final entry in the candleshop series by Tim Myers. I'm disappointed he ended the series after only four novels (and that he ended the soap series after only three novels).
Last novel in the series so far. Might not be another one since this one was published in 2006. Harrison finds Becka's dead in the water while kayaking on the river. Markum helps his friend try to find the murdered since the police says suicide. Both friends investigate and end up mixed up in local politics and mayhem. Oh and there's some trouble with the tenant's leases. It's surprisingly good. The best parts are the Markum Harrison sleuthing together to find the bad guys.
