Publisher's Summary

Bubble...bubble...

June Heal has nothing to lose when she relocates her homeopathic cure shop, A Dose of Darla, from the flea market booth in her home town, to a quaint shop in the cozy but unusual little town of Whispering Falls, Kentucky. Or so it seems.

Cures and trouble...

Whispering Falls has a lot of secrets. From talking snow globes to whispering animals not to mention a few sprinkles of fairy dust, June realizes Whispering Falls is more magical than she thought...literally.

Magic stirs...

June discovers she was born into a family of psychics, and her homeopathic cures truly are magical. Unfortunately, they are not magical enough to save her from being the number-one murder suspect when a member of the community that she had just had a disagreement with shows up face down in the lake with June's lucky charm in the victim's grasp.

And troubles double...

Add to that an attraction to her high school best friend, Sheriff Oscar Park, and Mr. Prince Charming, her cat, is stealing charms from Belle's Baubles, June is forced to clear her name in more ways than murder. After all, they don't have cauldrons in jail.

    "Needs work"

    The idea of this book is really interesting but it needs more work to be in order to be complete. I read the entire book waiting to get to know the characters in this book but it never happened. The characters were introduced in a random and disorganized fashion. The romantic storyline with June and Oscar was also undeveloped. I couldn't tell if they were childhood friends or more than that. If I had to describe the book in one word, I would say it was anemic. It was more of an outline than a complete story. I can't recommend it in this condition but I will say that it was an interesting idea. I'm not sure I will buy the next book in this series.

    I like Fantasy & Science Fiction but not into Zombie. Due to Health issues, listen to Audiobooks/read ebooks where I can enlarge the print

    "Not worth the price - nice idea poorly implimented"

    A Charming Crime: A Magical Cures Mystery, Book 1 had great potential, sadly the book didn't live up to it.

    Sadly it is a poorly written, badly paced tale that is hard to get involved in. It's a shame really as the idea behind the series is good but it urgently needs a decent editor, because who ever in doing it at present is not up to the job and letting this author down by letting this getting published as it stands.

    And if anyone ate as many "Ding Dongs", which according to Wikipedia are some sort of chocolate cake about three inches in diameter and a little more than an inch high, they would be bloated before this short story finished. At first it was a nice little character trait but quickly it becomes over used.

    I wish now i had not wasted the money on this book and can only hope in future books in this series her publisher uses a decent editor

    Story
    "Narrated Almost Caused Me to Stop Listening!"

    The narrator's voice was very distracting. Her reading was choppy and at times flat and nasally. The story was interesting with fun characters and a good mystery to solve. I do not think I will try another audible in this series if it is by the same narrator.
