Mystery Cozy | Mystery Paranormal | Mystery Book Lover

Two best-selling authors, one magical universe.

In the Book Magic Mystery Series, best-selling authors Melissa Bourbon and Wendy Lyn Watson bring you the story of cousins Pippin Lane Hawthorne and Cora Lane.  The cousins live on opposite coasts (Pippin in Devil’s Cove, North Carolina, and Cora in Laurel Point, Oregon), but they share the family gift of bibliomancy:  the ability to foresee the future and unravel the past with the help of the books we love. Join Pippin and Cora as they use their otherworldly power to solve mysteries in their respective worlds.

Every book tells two stories – one written on the pages with pen and ink, and one woven into the paper, a story of the soul. The Lane women have the gift of bibliomancy. They can read them both.

The Lane family “gift” has always been Cora Lane’s curse. As a bibliomancer, she delved into the lives of the people around her, culling through their secrets and revealing the lies they preferred to keep hidden. As a child, the habit left her on the outside of life looking in. When Cora was 17 years old, her twin sister Lily disappeared from their home town on Oregon’s coast. Cora should have known what had been going on with her sister, but she had been so lost in the pages of other people’s stories that she had failed to notice Lily’s troubles. Her neighbors didn’t trust her claim of ignorance. They thought the girl who knew everyone’s secrets was keeping one of her own.

When Cora turned eighteen, she escaped the whispers and sidelong glances, leaving behind her beloved Aunt Rose, the family business, Books by Bequest, and the books that haunted her.

Now, fifteen years later, Aunt Rose has summoned her home. Lily’s high school boyfriend, now a best-selling author, has returned to write an exposé on Lily’s disappearance, churning up the past like a storm-ravaged ocean. On top of that, developers are trying to force Rose to sell the family’s lighthouse on Cape Misery. Cora is prepared to do anything to defend her family’s past, but nothing can prepare her for the danger lurking in the sleepy coastal town of Laurel Point. Only the family gift—Cora’s book magic—can save her and unmask a killer.
