A Charming Blend: A Magical Cures Mystery and A Killer Coffee Mystery Crossover Mystery by Tonya Kappes
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
A Charming Blend by Tonya Kappes features a blend between Roxy and Patrick from the Killer Coffee Series and June Heal from the Magical Cures Series. If you aren’t familiar with the two series, I’m sure this book will have your interest peaking. If you are familiar with them, you might want to catch up a bit with the Killer Coffee series. This blend has a spoiler if you are not caught up.
Roxy and Patrick have left Honey Springs to visit the town of Whispering Falls. Love is in the air and mixing with magic. Sassy and Pepper are with them and Mr Prince Charming can be found at A Charming Cure. They add some furry shenanigans to the fun. Of course, some favorites from the Magical Cures Series make appearances as well as a dead body.
The story is told from alternate viewpoints, first Roxy then June. The name of the narrator is listed at the beginning of each chapter so you can easily check if you need to. The setting is at Christmas, which is one of my favorite times. The story is a fun, quick and easy read. It is a light but complete mystery. I really enjoyed the blending of the series. I am looking forward to seeing June and Roxy together again so I am truly hoping there is more crossing over to be done.
I first read this story as part of Cozy Christmas Crimes - A Cozy Christmas Box Set. I am pleased to see the story offered individually. I voluntarily reviewed this book after enjoying it a second time.
