About The Book of Peril
As the custodian of the oracular bookstore Abernathy’s, Helena has faced any number of challenges in learning her new role. But when the store begins giving out false prophecies, Helena comes up against her greatest challenge yet: how can she fix Abernathy’s when she doesn’t truly know how it works?
Armed only with a few special talents and her desire to protect her magical charge, and with the assistance of her best friend Viv, her reluctant assistant Judy, and the enigmatic and handsome Malcolm Campbell, Helena must navigate the treacherous depths of the magical world, where secret enemies lurk behind illusions capable of fooling even the most powerful of magical entities. Helena is the only one who can see past those illusions, but will her abilities prove strong enough to save the oracle?

While Helena can see through the most [...]
Cozy mystery meets urban fantasy in this follow up tale about a clever magical bookshop.

But oh the ending broke my heart. I am definitely going to need more books in this series.
I enjoyed this book. It's quirky, fun and an easy read. I enjoyed the unusual storyline. Can't wait to read the next one. #TheBookOfPeril #NetGalley
