COZY MYSTERY REVIEW – The Book of Candlelight by Ellery Adams

{Available January 28, 2020} This book was so much more than I expected! It’s incredibly atmospheric at the beginning – with rainy, early spring days, offset by Nora’s cozy, warm bookshop, Miracle Books.

I loved Nora’s friend group, the Secret, Book and Scone Society. This is a great novel about friendship – the importance of having people who support you, and the joy of meeting new friends. This is also a book for book lovers! It’s filled with literary references and each chapter starts with a quote from a famous author.

The Book of Candlelight is a lot grittier and more adult than your standard cozy mystery (I’d even classify it as a contemporary novel with touches of magical realism and mystery, with just a dash of coziness). The characters are real and there are some very serious issues and events that they face.

Thank you Kensington Books for the ARC!
