A Sprinkling of Murder

 This cozy is definitely not in my normal repertoire.  I have read other cozies by Daryl Wood Gerber and I know I like her style so I decided to give the Fairy mystery a try.   I was very pleasantly surprised at how much I enjoyed A Sprinkling of Murder.   The added bonus was the setting in Carmel, CA.   A town I spent time in during my childhood and one that is closely associated with my love of books.  Near Carmel is a shopping center that is set up like it's in the trees.  there was a fabulous bookstore there that my mother took me to for author signings and such.  I met Beverly Cleary and Hank Ketchum among others at this store.

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

A refreshing cozy that inspires one’s creative side and encourages opening one’s imagination to accept that which is generally not considered real. I have enjoyed other mysteries by Daryl Wood Gerber but generally would not have gravitated toward a mystical one such as this. I tried it in order to meet a challenge prompt about fairies. I’m glad I did it’s a clever mystery made that much more enjoyable as it’s set in Carmel, CA. I spent time near there when I was young so that adds to the charm and appeal of the book for me. Anyone looking for a mystery that has some mystical qualities that make you smile should try this book
