Tonya Kappes ... Magical Cure Mysteries . Paranormal Subjects

 Who doesn’t love driving through a small town where everyone waves at you when you drive by, take their time crossing the street, or belly up to the local watering hole for an ice tea or cold beer to catch up on the latest gossip? I admit it. I grew up in a very small town in Kentucky. I knew everyone by name and if I didn’t … I asked. By the end of the conversation I could tell you where they came from, what they were doing in town, and their entire life history.

Just like any teenager … I couldn’t wait to get out of that small town. After all, before I got home, my parents already knew who I was with and what I had been doing before I could even tell them. 

Word got around fast. I moved away to a city and loved that everyone didn’t care what I was doing or who I was doing it with. Not many years after I had left my small town, I found myself dreaming about my hometown. I wondered what everyone was doing. If they were stopping by the local drug store for a fountain drink or if they were just being lazy on a porch swing talking to the neighbors (gossiping of course) or what the crazy cat lady was up to.

As a writer I tapped into those feelings and started to make up my own town with characters that had problems and gossip would swirl around about them. You might even find a dash or two of paranormal in most of my series.

A Charming Crime . Book 1

Magical Cures Mystery Series . A Romp

by Tonya Kappes

Review by Sandy Penny,

This is my first read of Tonya Kappes, and I totally enjoyed the book. I am a fan of psychic mysteries, and this one took it further than most. 

June Heal is just getting over her mother's death, the shock of finding out her nightmares are actually premonitions of murders, and that her homeopathic concoctions actually have magical powers. After a fire at her home, she moves to a town full of psychics with all kinds of magical powers and becomes the number one suspect in a murder. With a whole town full of psychics and people with paranormal abilities, how can a killer stay hidden? Why don't they see that it's not her? It's only a matter of time before the murderer is caught, but it may be too late for June by then as it becomes clear that, in her nightmare of death, she is the victim. And to make it all worse, her best childhood friend and possibly the man she loves, and the local policeman, could be the murderer. 

It's all a little freaky and has great characters with some funny moments and enough suspense to keep you reading. It's lighthearted and I would classify it as a supernatural cozy mystery. I read it with only a few breaks for food and coffee and then back to the story. It's Bewitched meets Sedona told in a style like Janet Evanovich. I give it five stars, but did notice a few typos. 

Beyond the Best Selling Magical Cure Series, Tonya Kappes has written a number of other paranormal novels for you to explore.
