Alanis McLachlands travels to a small town in Arizona after finding out that her estranged mother has died under mysterious circumstances. When she gets there she finds out she has inherited a shop called The White Magic Five & Dime. She decides to stay in town and run the shop while she attempts to figure out who killed her mother. She meets a handful of suspicious characters and one hunky cop who waffles between telling her to stop and helping her out with her investigation, all the while seemingly showing more interest in building a relationship with her.
I found this book to be enjoyable and can see the possibility of it becoming a series. It kept my interest and the killer actually turned out to be a surprise I didn’t see coming. If you enjoy light series mysteries, give this new series a try.
