Enhance your purchase
Life hasn't sparkled too brightly for Bonnie Balfour over the past few years, but a heart-breaking divorce has brought her back to her small rural hometown of Bliss, Georgia, and things are starting to shape up.
The proud new owner of Bless Her Heart—a second chance dress shop and boutique on the town square—Bonnie thinks thirty-eight might not be too late for a fresh start in life after all.
Until a grouchy old widow turns up dead in a pile of donations meant for Bonnie’s shop, and the town’s new detective pins her to the top of his suspect list!
To save her shop, dream and reputation, Bonnie must coordinate clues and stitch together the truth about her innocence, but the unreasonably handsome detective and prying eyes of the local gossip mill are fast fraying her nerves.
When a series of anonymous attacks begin to hem her in, Bonnie fears the real killer is fixing to make her his next victim. Can this amateur sleuth measure up?

What I most appreciate with these books is how the author has created flawed and at times troubled
characters who become real. I feel like I know them, and go through the same emotions as they do as the H/h develop a relationship. While there isn’t explicit sex in the books (I don’t think!), there is comforting touch and kissing and a psychological explanation why it hasn’t gone further in Book 4. Again, it goes to the heroine’s past which makes her real.
The small town is quirky, as are the peripheral characters. You have family, best friends, community, small business owners, humor and love, and a cat! The mysteries are interesting and Bonnie insinuates herself into them much to the consternation of Sheriff Wright.
Book 5 is due out in May 2022 and I already pre-ordered it. This has become my favorite cozy mystery series and I will be sad when it’s over. Enjoy!
I LOVE this series!!! We're in book three and Julie Anne Lindsey still keeps it fresh and fun. Bonnie and Mason's relationship is progressing nicely after some heart to heart moments and the author is really good at giving Bonnie realistic reactions to all the life or death circumstances she finds herself in in this series. There's nothing I dislike more when reading a cozy series and the amateur sleuther is completely fine after getting attacked, or abducted, and almost killed. Any living person would have PTS and Julie Anne Lindsey doesn't forget this aspect and makes her characters seem more real.

I said it before and I’ll say it again, I LOVE THIS SERIES! It’s so good!! Five stars all around 🥰 I’m loving the added romance factor that ups the ante as the local amateur sleuth attempts to solve the murder before the Sheriff. Can’t wait for December 15, 2021 when the next installment, Eyelet Witness, comes out!
