Book Review: A Charming Misfortune

  • Title: A Charming Misfortune
  • Author: Tonya Kappes
  • Genre: Paranormal Cozy Mystery, Southern Cozy Mystery
  • Where to buy: Amazon (affiliate link)
  • Would I recommend: If you like a delightful cozy mystery with just a touch of magic, absolutely!

There’s mystery afoot in Whispering Falls. A group of Audubon Society birdwatchers has descended after learning of a sighting of the elusive Spangled Smoky Momoko. The rare bird sighting also attracts Adam Vedder, a zoologist with a zoo specializing in exotic animals, hoping to capture the Spangled and breed it in captivity. June is sensing something about misfortune. Madam Torres, her crystal ball, keeps chirping, and Mr. Prince Charming, her godcat, has brought her a bird charm. And what is this about a crow flying at midnight?

While the birdwatchers are camping out, looking for the Spangled, Adam Vedder is found dead. All of the birdwatchers, plus a beloved Whispering Falls resident, fall under suspicion. Oscar has 24 hours to solve the crime or else the mortal police will have to be called in. He and June are up against a deadline as they try to figure out who is responsible for Adam’s death. Luckily, they’ve got some help from the other residents of Whispering Falls.

I really enjoy the Magical Cures Mystery series, and this book was no exception. Ms. Kappes spins a lively yarn that hooked my interest and made this a very quick read. June and Oscar are adorable, and the other residents of the town are so quirky, it’s just delightful. I wish I could visit Whispering Falls for real!
