This was just too many stories shoved into one book. I will say I didn't see the end coming and so that is why this got 2 instead of 1 star. It was quite shocking and probably the best part of the book. I have never ever been a fan of spiders though and I am even less of one now.
I am done with this series - it just isn't for me. ...more

Ellery Adams does such a wonderful, once again, of telling a great story and writes in a manner that, for this reader, makes me feel that I am right there, every step of the way.

Excuse me while I gush a minute... I love the world of Havenwood that Ellery Adams has created and every single one of her characters is fantastic. She fills each book with warmth and humor, and still manages to ground the magical elements within satisfying human conflicts. The "Charmed Pie Shoppe Mysteries" do follow traditional cozy mysteries standards, but Ellery has also written a world-building treatment that is more likely to be f ...more
