Publisher's Summary

Romance is in the air on Harrington Street, Oxford. Detective Inspector Ian Chisholm is finally showing interest in Lucy, though the members of the vampire knitting club aren't too thrilled to have the police hanging around so close to Cardinal Woolsey's yarn shop. Up the street at Frogg Books, shop assistant Alice is in love with her bookish boss, Charlie, who doesn't seem to notice.  

Lucy's trying to become more proficient as a witch and when her cousin Violet talks her into brewing up a love potion to bring Alice and Charlie together, it seems like a harmless way to improve her craft.   

Until someone dies. Is Lucy's love potion more deadly than cupid's arrow? Or is there a killer on the loose?

BEST IN THE SERIES SO FAR

I LOVED THIS BOOK, SIMPLE AS THAT. NOT ONLY WAS THE STORY INTERESTING, WITH SEVERAL TWISTS, BUT THE IMAGERY IN THE DESCRIPTIONS WAS JUST AMAZING. I AM ONE WHO OFTEN TUNES OUT THE DESCRIPTIONS OF SURROUNDINGS, BUT IT WAS JUST SPECTACULAR IN THAT CLOSING SCENE. NANCY WARREN IS A WRITER EXTRAORDINAIRE, AND SARAH ZIMMERMAN ABSOLUTELY BRINGS THESE BOOKS TO LIFE.

Good narration

While the narration was very good I did not enjoy this book in the series as much as the previous ones. I’m hoping the next one will be better.

Light Romance, Magic, & Knitting

Cute, light, funny whodunit series listen. Much like other hobby themed mystery books. Moments that made me laugh, trying to guess whodunit & which potential love interest the protagonist will choose.

Love Potion Problems & Midsummer Night's Murder

Emma is back with her friends we've come to know and enjoy. This time testing out her magic helping a desperate next door business neighbor with a love potion. But in typical story fashion the love potion goes a little awry and in the middle of helping with a theater department of Oxford who is putting on a performance of Midsummer Night's Dream. While hi-jinks abound the fun and games dissolve when a missing person and murder are found. There are twists and turns as well as mixed up love angles in this fifth edition in the series. Narration continues to be wonderful and the developing interactions of Emma with Rafe and Ian are enjoyable, especially the aspects of the special bond between Emma and Rafe. The pacing and story line are fun and engaging and I was amused that this one had kind of an Agatha Christie bring all the suspects together to reveal the killer moment at the end. For fans of the series you are sure to enjoy this episode.
