Every town has its secrets, but no one has a secret like hers.

Amber Blackwood, lifelong resident of Edgehill, Oregon, has earned a reputation for being a semi-reclusive odd duck. Her store, The Quirky Whisker, is full of curiosities, from extremely potent sleepy teas and ever-burning candles to kids’ toys that seem to run endlessly without the aid of batteries. The people of Edgehill think of the Quirky Whisker as an integral part of their feline-obsessed town, but most give Amber herself a wide berth. Amber prefers it that way; it keeps her secret safe. But that secret is thrown into jeopardy when Amber’s friend Melanie is found dead, a vial of headache tonic from Amber’s store clutched in her hand.

Edgehill’s newest police chief has had it out for Amber since he arrived three years before. He can’t possibly know she’s a witch, but his suspicions about her odd store and even odder behavior have shot her to the top of his suspect list. When the Edgehill rumor mill finds out Melanie was poisoned, it’s not only the police chief who looks at Amber differently. Determined to both find justice for her friend and to clear her own name, Amber must use her unique gifts to help track down Melanie’s real killer.

A quest that threatens much more than her secret …

I enjoyed this book by a new author for me. It was refreshing & well written w/enjoyable characters who didn't fall into the predictable tropes. This first book was free. I'm now going to purchase the second book in the series. Always any author"s hope, but not always the result. I highly recommend this cozy mystery. Read & enjoy.

A good read. Names of shops and streets very clever. Has an excellent proofreader. Looking forward to the rest of the series and also The forgotten child, which I'm starting next.
