Publisher Description

Enjoy this clean, paranormal cozy mystery by award winning and bestselling author, Lucinda Race.

In a small town like Pembroke Cove, Maine, everyone has something to hide. But when bookstore owner Lily Michaels takes a tumble and hits her head, and her cat Milo starts talking to her, she discovers she has something to hide, too. She’s a witch, and Milo is her familiar. And she’s not the only one in town. Lily has been hiding something else, too. Even though she’s always kept Gage Erikson in the friend zone, her feelings for the man Milo calls Detective Cutie go a lot deeper than she’s willing to admit.

Gage has a secret too. He’s always had a crush on Lily. But if he gives into his feelings, it might mess up the wonderful friendship they have. With his cowboy boots and cherry red pickup truck and knack for just letting folks talk, people might underestimate just how good a detective Gage actually is. But is he good enough to discover all of Lily’s secrets?

Somebody in Pembroke knows a lot about the secrets people are keeping, and isn’t above a little blackmail. While Lily struggles with learning how to be a witch, she works with Gage to uncover the truth, and a new kind of magic develops between them. Will they continue to be just friends, or will they finally admit to the secret love they’ve been hiding?

Books and Bribes is the first novel in A Book Store Cozy Mystery Series, although each book can be read as standalone. A sweet and clean cozy mystery with a guarantee the culprit is caught. Happy reading!

Purrfect Plot!

I loved the concept of this story and found this to be a cozy murder mystery. There was magic, animal familiars, two POV, and no cliff hanger! ☺️ However, there were a couple of typos and grammatical errors that took me out of the story. And while I loved Milo, I found Lilly frustrating. She owned a book store, came across a magical book (just for her!), and then spends the entire time complaining about having to read the book! I would devour it! Overall, I’m glad I read this book, but I’m not sure I’ll read the rest of the series.

A Climate of Health

This is a restoring conviction of a capable, pleasant story. The ending appears quickly. The reader is encouraged to keep reading from beginning to end with one evening sleep the only stopping before the story is completed.
It is a surprising tip that creates beginning to end within a 24 hour timeframe.
Enjoy this creative story!
