A Charming Deception: :A Cozy Paranormal Mystery (A Magical Cures Mystery Series book 13) by [Tonya Kappes]Synopsis:

Welcome to Whispering Fall where magic and mystery collide!

Bubble… Bubble…

June Heal and Oscar Park are beyond thrilled with the upcoming arrival of their baby.

Cures and Trouble…

June’s pregnancy is turning out to more at risk than anticipated and she has to go to a specialist doctor outside of Whispering Falls where patients are nosey and hormones are raging, leaving the nurses and receptionist at their wits ends and bickering at each other.

Magic Stirs…

Poor June is put on limited activity. The baby is proving to a little mischievous and magic before it’s even born and leaving the doctors a little miffed with all the different ultrasound shenanigans.

Trouble Doubles…

June’s hormones have messed with her intuition and spiritual gifts, leaving her unsure of things going on around her.On one of her many doctor appointments, June arrives a little early and find the receptionist strangled to death.June can’t help herself and decides to put her amateur and magical sleuthing skills to the test to try to bring the killer to justice… or are her hormones deceiving her? (Goodreads)


The characters are well developed and well rounded. June is about to give birth and everyone is very excited. Her friends are arguing about who is going to babysit the infant, Her husband wants her protected inside a bubble, and June just wants to meet the child. When someone is found murdered, she knows she needs to help find the killer before the big day arrives.

The author is very talented in her descriptive writing and these descriptions pulled me into the story from the very beginning. The writing style flows smoothly and the book is a quick easy read. The mystery was well plotted and there were enough suspects to consider and clues to sift through and not easily solved.

I would recommend this book to anyone who enjoys a well crafted cozy mystery. The magical moments in this book add another layer to this book, and I greatly enjoyed it.

I voluntarily reviewed an ARC of this book and provided my honest review.
