Publisher's Summary

In Cascade Springs, New York, Violet Waverly and her grandma, Daisy, are the proprietors of Charming Books, where the power of the written word is positively enchanting.
October in Cascade Springs means tourists are pouring in for the annual Food and Wine Festival, and Daisy hopes to draw those crowds to the store. She asks Violet and the local writing group, the Red Inkers, to give a reading of the works of Edgar Allan Poe on the shop's front porch to entertain the revelers. Everyone eagerly agrees.
Yet their enthusiasm is soon extinguished when Violet discovers one of the writers dead in the shop moments before the event. After the shop magically tells Violet she'll need to rely on Poe's works to solve the murder, she enlists the help of her trusty tuxedo cat, Emerson, and the shop's crow, Faulkner. But they must act fast before someone else's heart beats nevermore.

cute book with a nice plot

I don't usually like magic or fantasy to intrude in my mystery books. But Crime and Poetry and Prose and Cons are exceptions! With a creative plot and plenty of surprises, Prose and Cons actually bridges the gap between reality and fantasy really deftly, making it a lot of fun.

The narration also was well-done. I really enjoyed listening to this book and look forward to more!

Going downhill

The first book in the series is ok, though very uneven and uncertain of what it wants to be, it holds through. In this one, though, the protagonist loses at least half her intelligence but gains at least triple the arrogance. The marysuefication of her character became too much for me so I think I'm done with the series.

As for the narrator, she does a competent job. Some of the female friend voices are exaggerated and too similar to one another, but overall, I think she did a good job.
