ACCIDENTAL MAGIC


The Book

Accidental Magic by Iris Beaglehole
Book 1 in the Myrtlewood Mysteries series
Genre: urban fantasy
Format: ebook


Welcome to Myrtlewood, a quirky town, steeped in magic, tea and mystery…

Life’s a struggle for Rosemary Thorn and her teen daughter, Athena. But their regular troubles are turned upside down after Granny Thorn’s mysterious death.

Despite her cousin's sinister manoeuvrings, Rosemary returns to Myrtlewood and the sprawling, dilapidated Thorn Manor. But there's more to the old house than meets the eye, as Rosemary and Athena soon find out — in a whirlwind of magic, adventure, mystical creatures and endless cups of tea.

Life in Myrtlewood would be bliss if Rosemary could only clear her name in a certain murder investigation, solve the mystery and stay out of mortal peril — for at least a little while!

A small town with endless secrets, strange activities and a house with a mind of its own.

My Thoughts:
I like the premise and the cover art of this book and that is why it got bought. However, I had a little bit of a hard time getting into this book. It most probably me that was at fault at that time. I was coping with a lot of life's drama then.

I totally like the mother-daughter dynamics. That is not how my relationship with my mother goes, but it is totally believable that such a thing could happen.
