Welcome to Whispering Falls, where magic and mystery collide.

Bubble... Bubble...

Summer in Whispering Falls is in full swing.

Cures and trouble...

When a local Audubon Society hears a very rare and nearly extinct bird species is seen in Whispering Falls, in Petunia Shrubwood's head of hair of all places, the society comes to Whispering Falls bound and determined to find the rare bird.
Petunia will go to any lengths to keep her animals safe...after all, they are the lost souls of those who have passed.

Magic stirs...

The Karima sisters are haunted by a ghost that demands they help him cross to the other side, only the ghost's human form is not dead...yet.

And troubles double...
After one of the Audubon Society members is found dead, Petunia Shrubwood becomes the number one suspect.

June Heal is going to have to use some very special magic if she's going to get Petunia off the hook before another person in the Audubon Society becomes extinct...like the bird they are hunting.

A Charming Misfortune is a paranormal cozy mystery and the 12th book in the series. I recommend reading the books in order of publication as it features the same heroine throughout the series. Plus, this is such a good series and you’ll be missing out if you don’t read them all! 

That being said, I found A Charming Misfortune to be an exciting read. I love how all the characters come together in order to solve the mystery. Not only that, they are so much fun to read about as they are have their own unique quirks. These characters, much like all the characters Tonya writes, could easily become a best friend if they were real. That is among the many reasons I am always excited when the author writes a new book. Her characters and the sense of community that each bring as phenomenal. 

If you enjoy longer series with light and fun books I recommend trying the Magical Cures series. While you CAN enjoy the book on it’s own I feel it’s better to read them all.
