The Deadly Jellybean Affair by Carrie Marsh
(Morhollow Sweet Tooth Murder Mysteries Series Book 1)
I was introduced to Carrie Marsh’s writing when I joined her review team and have read a few of the books from her Millerfield Village Cozy Murder Mystery series. I have to say this new book is the best one yet! I absolutely love the story of an older gal that has hidden her witchy abilities for years, other than continuing to tap into her ability to speak with her cat familiar Alabaster. Only her husband knew she was a witch and she decided to not use her powers in order to lead a normal life.
It’s a time of endings and beginnings, and after her husband dies she decides to follow a dream that she’d never followed and opens a bead store. She ends up tapping back into her powers which helps her in searching for a murderer and trying to solve the mystery. It’s proof that it’s never too late in life to be true to yourself and accept who you are. And when that includes having special powers, who wouldn’t be interested?
This story was filled with humor, murder and mystery and was the perfect example of what a cozy mystery should look like. I highly recommend this book to all who love cozy mysteries.
My Rating: 5/5 Stars
