Bookshop mystery. Fans of Sofie Kelly and Heather Blake,

Niagara region booksellers Violet Waverly and Grandma
Daisy sleuth the slaying of a sommelier whose book signing
turned into her sayonara.
January means ice wine season in the Niagara Falls region,
but the festivities leave Charming Books owner Violet
Waverly cold, still reeling from a past heartbreak. A past
heartbreak who will be present at the annual midnight
grape-harvest festival, and no magic in the world or
incantation powerful enough could get Violet to attend. But
Grandma Daisy, an omniscient force all on her own, informs
Violet that sheâ€™s already arranged for the mystical Charming
Books to host celebrity sommelier Belinda Perkinsâ€™s book
signing at the party. Little do either Waverly women know,
the ice wine festival will turn colder still when Violet
finds Belinda in the middle of the frozen vineyardâ€”with a
grape harvest knife protruding from her chest.
Belinda grew up in Cascade Springs, but she left town years
ago after a huge falling-out with her three sisters. One of
those sisters, Violetâ€™s high school friend Lacey Dupont,
attends the book signing in the hope of making amends with
her sister, but Belinda and Lacey end up disrupting the
signing with a very public shouting match and Lacey quickly
becomes the prime suspect in the sommelierâ€™s murder.
Violet is sure Lacey is innocent, and to keep her friend out
of prison, Violet asks for guidance from her magical
bookshop. The shopâ€™s ethereal essence points her to Louisa
May Alcottâ€™s Little Women, but what have the four
March sisters to do with the four Perkins sisters? If she
canâ€™t figure it out, Violet, herself, may turn as cold as
ice. Violet, Grandma Daisy, Emerson the tuxedo cat, and
resident crow Faulkner are back on the case in Murders
and Metaphors, USA Today bestselling author
Amanda Flowerâ€™s enchanting third Magical Bookshop mystery.
