Since February is Black History Month, I thought it only fitting to spotlight a BIPOC cozy author.
The theme for February is Magical Mysteries and we will be reading A Spell for Trouble (2020) by Esme Addison.
Please feel free to bring your favorite tea to enjoy while we discuss some herbal magic. Tea bags will also be provided, just be sure to bring a mug!
The first book in the Enchanted Bay Mysteries begins with a trip to Bellamy Bay, which, as usual, is full of chatter about the apothecary owned by Alexandra Daniels’ aunt and cousins. She hasn’t seen them in over 20 years since her mother’s tragic death, but even she knows something is wrong when her aunt is suddenly accused of murder. After all, her aunt and her cousins are all herbal healers. Why would one of them suddenly poison someone? Or is this all rooted in mysterious affairs, rivalries, and rumors of mermaids and magic? Are these secrets really worth killing over?
