A Glimmer of a Clue (A Fairy Garden Mystery)

We rated this book:


Courtney Kelly has it made––she has a booming business, her family, and even her fairy friend Fiona. It isn’t all light and sparkles in the town, though. Lana Lamar, ruling pickleball champion, has been ruffling lots of feathers. One day, she gets in a wrestling match with Courtney’s friend Wanda, which escalates into them fighting again at a professional fundraiser. Then, Courtney finds Lana stabbed with an artwork letter opener, and Wanda is immediately at the top of the suspect list. Courtney knows Wanda’s innocent, but how can she prove it? And if it wasn’t Wanda, who stabbed Lana? Could it have been her husband? The psychologist, Tamara, who has a shady alibi? Kenny Chu, who has been acting weird since Lana’s death? Or could it have been the very person Courtney’s working to defend, Wanda herself?

This was an entertaining mystery with plenty of magic! I liked the inclusion of fairies without them being the focus of the story, and I liked the colorful personalities of the people in Carmel. The murder itself was nicely plotted and had an interesting conclusion. I recommend this to anyone who loves books with charming towns with a sprinkling of mystery!
