Publisher Description

An amateur sleuth named Bonnie and her kitty companion Clyde, with names like those, what could possibly go wrong?

Life hasn't sparkled too brightly for Bonnie Balfour over the past few years, but a heart-breaking divorce has brought her back to her small rural hometown of Bliss, Georgia, and things are starting to shape up.

The proud new owner of Bless Her Heart—a second chance dress shop and boutique on the town square—Bonnie thinks thirty-eight might not be too late for a fresh start in life after all.

Until a grouchy old widow turns up dead in a pile of donations meant for Bonnie's shop, and the town's new detective pins her to the top of his suspect list!

To save her shop, dream and reputation, Bonnie must coordinate clues and stitch together the truth about her innocence, but the unreasonably handsome detective and prying eyes of the local gossip mill are fast fraying her nerves.

When a series of anonymous attacks begin to hem her in, Bonnie fears the real killer is fixing to make her his next victim. Can this amateur sleuth measure up?

Epic Start to a Fantastic Series!

“Burden of Poof” is the debut novel under Julie Anne Lindsey’s new publishing company, Cozy Queen Publishing, and boy does she start off with a bang!

After Bonnie Balfour’s marriage unravels, she returns to her hometown, Bliss, GA, where she opens a second chance dress shop, “Bless Her Heart.” But not long after the doors open, a member of the community is murdered among a donation meant for Bonnie’s shop and she finds herself at the center of the new Detective’s investigation. With all the evidence piling up against her, Bonnie and her kitty, Clyde, work to clear her name, hopefully before she becomes the murderers next victim.

I. LOVED. THIS. BOOK. In my opinion, Julie Anne Lindsey can do no wrong. Like her other cozy series, I just want to crawl into the book and live in the world she created. To meet and befriend the characters. To hang out with Clyde and eat all the treats on the refreshment table at Bless Her Heart. I can’t wait for Seven Deadly Sequins because That Ending! I need answers!!

Please be advised that I received an advance readers copy for an honest review. In all seriousness, do yourself a favor and buy this book! It’s the perfect blend of cozy mystery with a side of supernatural and a dash of romance.

I re-read the book by listening to the audiobook and it was just as wonderful the second time around. The audiobook narrator was fantastic and really brought the characters to life!
