Stella Wright loves creating candles at her Nantucket store—and she also has a burning passion for justice. Now, after visiting a perfume conference, she must solve a vial crime . . .
Stella and her globe-trotting mom, Millie, have come home from a perfume industry conference in Paris, where their trip was marred by witnessing the stabbing death of a young man. It’s a relief for Stella to be back on her picturesque island, with the comforting company of her cat, Tinker. But lingering danger may have followed them back across the ocean.
After someone breaks into her candle store, the Wick & Flame, Stella starts feeling spooked. And just as things threaten to ignite, Millie suffers a blow to the head. Stella receives an anonymous note claiming that her mother smuggled a secret formula out of France—and threatening her life if it isn’t returned. Now Stella’s picked up the scent of a cold-hearted criminal and an intriguing puzzle, and things are about to get wicked . . .
While at a perfume industry conference in Paris with her mother, Stella is witness to a murder. After making it home to her candle shop in Nantucket however, someone tries to break in and she’s worried that it may have something to do with the murder.
Stella is a great character, and as crazy as everything got she managed to keep it all together. There was a lot going on in this story, and I found it hard to put down because I really needed to see how everything was going to turn out. There were interesting characters, fun locations, and lots of suspects – pretty much everything a good cozy needs.
Murder Makes Scents is the second book in the Nantucket Candle Shop series. I hadn’t read the first book but had no trouble keeping up with who was who or what was what, so you can easily jump in here.
About the Author
was born and raised in NYC, where her family and many childhood friends still reside. As such, she feels she is as much of a small-town girl as any. The idea to write the Nantucket Candle Maker series sprang from her life-long connection to the small island off the coast of Massachusetts. Spending summers there as a child, Christin read from her family’s library of mystery novels, after which she began to imagine stories inspired by the island’s whaling heyday, its notoriously foggy nights, and during long bike rides to the beach. After many years in marketing for the publishing industry, followed by years raising her children, Murder’s No Votive Confidence
is Christin’s debut novel. Visit her at www.christinbrecher.com
