About The Book:
The 5th book in the Smithwell Fairies Cozy Mystery Series!
When Angie Palmer asks Kate to find out who’s been stealing from her home, Kate accepts the challenge. After all, it’s a simple matter of theft, nothing she can’t handle, and Angie has conveniently assembled the suspects for tea and pastries in her greenhouse. But Kate’s cut-and-dried investigation takes a deadly turn when one of the suspects is murdered during that tea.
To complicate matters, Kate has agreed to help Minette rid her precious woods of the cruel Hacquetia and her fairy minions, and her best friend’s husband is beginning to suspect that something extraordinary is happening in those Maine woods. Can he be trusted with a secret that will turn his world upside down?
This light, cozy mystery offers a clean read with a female amateur sleuth in a small-town setting. No foul language, sex, gore, or graphic scenes of any kind. It can be read as a standalone, but it will be enjoyed more as part of the series.

My Rating: 4 Stars!
‘I dislike people who consider rudeness a virtue.’
I love Karin Kaufman’s writing. She writes some very, very nice cozy mysteries. Her Juniper Grove Mysteries are amazing as are her Smithwell Fairies mysteries. Kate Brewer, widowed at 40, solves mysteries with the help of a four inch fairy named Minette. So cute! I never guess the culprit, either. She’s very good at what she does. Both Kaufman and Kate. Recommended.
