Book 2 in the Magical Bookshop Mysteries
by Amanda Flower

Magic, books, and cats collide in a village near Niagara Falls in the latest mystery from the author of Crime and Poetry...
In Cascade Springs, New York, Violet Waverly and her grandma, Daisy, are the proprietors of Charming Books, where the power of the written word is positively enchanting...
October in Cascade Springs means tourists are pouring in for the annual Food and Wine Festival, and Daisy hopes to draw those crowds to the store. She asks Violet and the local writing group, the Red Inkers, to give a reading of the works of Edgar Allan Poe in the shop’s back garden to entertain the revelers. Everyone eagerly agrees.
Yet their enthusiasm is soon extinguished when Violet discovers one of the writers dead during the event. After the shop magically tells Violet she’ll need to rely on Poe’s works to solve the murder, she enlists the help of her trusty tuxedo cat, Emerson, and the shop’s crow, Faulkner. But they must act fast before someone else’s heart beats nevermore...


Another charming story in the Magical Bookshop Mystery series.

A master at her craft, author Amanda Flower aka Isabella Alan has proven she can pen an outstanding mystery no matter the main topic. Be it a magical bookstore, the Amish, history, quilting, or middle school, it’s plain to see that this author does her research.

Amanda Flower consistently brings readers a well written story that they’ll take with them long after they’ve read the last page. That certainly is true with PROSE AND CONS. This mysterious para-cozy had me under its spell from the beginning. I was so enthralled in the story that I lost all track of time.

Eclectic characters, delightful pets, and a wonderful setting (both bookshop and town), PROSE AND CONS is an extremely entertaining tale that will leave readers satisfied yet anxiously awaiting the next installment.

If you haven’t read a book by Amanda Flower/Isabella Alan, it is certainly time that you do!
