A Glimmer of a Clue (A Fairy Garden Mystery) by Daryl Wood Gerber

Synopsis: 

Courtney Kelly has a shop full of delights, a cat named Pixie, a green thumb—and a magical touch when it comes to garden design. But in Carmel-by-the-Sea, things aren’t all sweetness and fairy lights . . .

When Courtney’s friend Wanda gets into a ponytail-pulling wrestling match in public with a nasty local art critic, Courtney stops the fight with the help of a garden hose. But Lana Lamar has a talent for escalating things and creating tension, which she succeeds in doing by threatening a lawsuit, getting into yet another scuffle—in the midst of an elegant fundraiser, no less—and lobbing insults around like pickleballs.

Next thing Courtney knows, Lana is on the floor, stabbed with a decorative letter opener from one of Courtney’s fairy gardens, and Wanda is standing by asking “What have I done?” But the answer may not be as obvious as it seems, since Wanda is prone to sleepwalking and appears to be in a daze. Could she have risen from her nap and committed murder while unconscious? Or is the guilty party someone else Lana’s ticked off, like her long-suffering husband? To find out, Courtney will have to dig up some dirt . . .

I’m a fan of all of Daryl Wood Gerber’s cozy series, but this one is quickly becoming one of my favorites. I would so love to visit the tea and fairy garden shop – it sounds enchanting. In this installment, Courtney must prove that her friend Wanda is no killer.

This book is exactly what I look for in a cozy mystery. Interesting and likable sleuths, plenty of syspects, a little humor to keep it from being too heavy, but still a great mystery.

This is the secong book in the Fairy Garden Mystery series, and a perfect time to jump on board if you haven’t already. You can always go back adn read book one while you wait for the next one to be released! 🙂
