When a woman goes missing, and a neighbor turns up dead, Cassie turns to the books she’s always avoided to help her find the truth.

Meet the Author

Melissa Bourbon is the national bestselling author of nineteen mystery books, including the brand-new collaborative Book Magic mysteries, the Lola Cruz Mysteries, A Magical Dressmaking Mystery series, and the Bread Shop Mysteries, written as Winnie Archer. She is a former middle school English teacher who gave up the classroom in order to live in her imagination full time.

Melissa, a California native who has lived in Texas and Colorado, now calls the southeast home. She hikes, practices yoga, cooks, and is slowly but surely discovering all the great restaurants in the Carolinas. Since four of her five amazing kids are living their lives, scattered throughout the country, her dogs, Bean, the pug, Dobby, the chug, and Jasper, a cattle dog/lab keep her company while she writes.

Melissa lives in North Carolina with her educator husband, Carlos, and their youngest son. She is beyond fortunate to be living the life of her dreams.

  1. Longtime Melissa Bourbon fan--love "Lola Cruz"! "Book Magic" sounds like another great series : )

    1. How awesome to hear, Virginia! I think you'll love this series, and the mini mystery is a great way to get to know Devil's Cove and the Lane women.

  2. There is most definitely something special about a story which involves books. And more books.
    Thanks for the introduction.

    1. I hope you'll give The Secret on Rum Runner's Lane a read. I love this series so much! ~Melissa

  3. That is a mini - just a hundred pages.

    1. Yep, it's a novella. An 'in between the novels' book to tell the stories of those not in the main series. ~Melissa

  4. I always like a book that features... books. And this one sounds like an interesting mix of books, family history and a murder plot. Thanks for sharing, Mason!

    1. I do, too, Margot! I hope you'll give this series a read :) ~Melissa
