About this ebook

“The perfect romance or beach read, with a difference: its enthusiasm and beautiful descriptions offer an unexpected attention to the complexity of not just evolving love, but evolving psyches. It's a delightful recommendation for romance readers looking for a touch more complexity from their romance reads.”

--Midwest Book Review (For Now and Forever)

THE WITCHING PLACE: A PERILOUS PAGE is book #3 in a charming new cozy mystery series by bestselling author Sophie Love, author of The Inn at Sunset Harbor series, a #1 Bestseller with over 200 five-star reviews.


When Alexis Blair, 29, is fired from her book publishing job and breaks up with her boyfriend on the same day, she wonders if life is urging her to make a fresh start. She decides it’s time to pursue her lifelong dream of opening a bookstore of her own—even if that means leaving Boston and accepting a job in a curious bookstore in a small seaside town an hour away.


A cryptic visitor comes into town, looking for a rare book, and willing to pay anything.


But when he ends up dead, Alexis wonders: was the price too high?


And did Alexis’s mysterious store owner have anything to do with it?


A page-turning cozy, rife with the supernatural, mystery, secrets and love—and centered around a small town as odd and endearing as its shop—A PERILOUS PAGE will make you fall in love and keep you laughing out loud as you turn pages late into the night.

Books #4-#5 are also available!

“The romance is there, but not overdosed. Kudos to the author for this amazing start of a series that promises to be very entertaining.”

Alexis Blair is having a bad day and it just might be time to start over in a new place. She had just been fired from her book publishing job and broke up with her boyfriend, so there is nothing to keep her in Boston. She has always wanted to open a bookstore of her own, and the lovely small seaside town will be perfect. When a man comes in to find a rare book and offers $50,000, it is strange. Yet Montgomery turns the offer down. Alexis remained silent, though, until she had a chance to ask him why. And it was even stranger, when the man ends up dead! What was so important about that book? Who killed Mr. Sloane and why? The author kept me busy guessing about the murderer all the way through as I waited for the big reveal! The story moved along at the perfect pace and I enjoyed the characters we meet. I am definitely looking forward to the next adventure!
