Today I'd like to shine a spotlight on a new release. I was so excited when I saw the cover and became even more so when I read the back cover. This book, the start of a new series, looks to be right up my alley. Sadly, I have other reading commitments, so the book, which I bought, will sit on my TBR pile for a while. So, what is this book? Daisies For Innocence by Bailey Cattrell, the first Enchanted Garden Mystery.
From the back cover:
The Enchanted Garden behind Elliana Allbright's perfume shop draws people of all ages with its fragrant flowers and lush greenery. But when the magical serenity is interrupted, it's up to Ellie to track down a killer.
Ellie's life has blossomed in Poppyville, California since she opened Scents and Nonsense, a custom-made-perfume store. Her skills with aromas and botanical essences-some from her very own garden-seem almost...supernatural. Her perfumes can evoke emotions, bring about a change, or simply make people happy. Customers are flocking to the store to buy her wares, or just to simply sit in her beautiful garden, sip yea, and enjoy homemade cookies.
But she smells trouble when she learns that her part-time assistant, Josie, is dating her ex. And before she can tell the young woman to beware his charms, she finds Josie dead in the Enchanted Garden. Now the prime suspect in Josie's murder, Ellie must search for the real culprit in Josie's past-because it'll take a miracle to nip this problem in the bud...
