Publisher Description

In the new Secret, Book, and Scone Society novel from New York Times bestselling author Ellery Adams, the rain in Miracle Springs, North Carolina, has been relentless—and a flood of trouble is about to be unleashed . . .
 
Nora Pennington figures all the wet weather this spring is at least good for business. The local inns are packed with stranded travelers, and among them Nora finds new customers for her store, Miracle Books. Since a little rain never hurt anyone, Nora rides her bike over to the flea market one sodden day and buys a bowl from Danny, a Cherokee potter. But the next day, after Miracle River overflows its banks, and Danny’s body is found floating within the churning waters, Nora decides it’s time for the Secret, Book, and Scone Society to spring into action. A crucial clue may lie within the stone walls of the Inn of Mist and Roses: a diary, over a century old and spattered with candle wax, that leads Nora and her friends through a maze of intrigue—and onto the trail of a
murderer . . .
 
“A love letter to reading, with sharp characterizations and a smart central mystery.”

The Book of Candlelight

Nora runs a small town bookstore and prides herself on being able to pick the right books for each customer who steps within her doors. During a scouting mission at the flea market, she picks up a lovely bowl by a Native American artist. His love for his wife touches her. Thus she feels invested when she finds his body floating in the swollen river. Soon her amateur sleuthing leads her to secrets and mysterious volumes. At the same time, Nora and her closest friends become targets of vandalism and threats. Does this have anything to do with her search for answers?
Parts of this novel proved exceptionally cheesy. While I enjoy pop culture references and learning new things, it felt like the writer tried to squeeze in more than the story could support. I did enjoy the colorful characters and how they interacted with each other.
