Courtney is the owner of a fairy-gardening/tea shop in picturesque Carmel-by-the-Sea. She also can see fairies around her. One fairy in particular, Fiona, is tasked with helping Courtney with any issues in her life. In A Flicker of a Doubt, Fiona’s story is told, and it is fascinating! But more than just the fairy world is within the book’s covers. Courtney’s best friend, Meaghan, is having issues with two ex-boyfriends, who are also local artists. When one is killed, Courtney, with Fiona’s help, steps in to help.
I really enjoyed the expansion of the fairy world’s rules and relationships that are explored in this book. Fiona is the most intriguing character and many of her secrets are revealed here. The mystery and the human relationships also kept my interest. Plus, I really appreciate all the gluten free sweet treats in the back of the book! Overall, A Flicker of a Doubt is an enchantingly whimsical cozy mystery perfect for fantasy fans. 4 stars!
Thanks to Kensington Books, Great Escapes Book Tours and NetGalley for a digital review copy of the book.

Fairies are trending hard, especially when it comes to fairy garden décor in Walmart and Target and on Amazon. The latest installment in the nationally bestselling Daryl Wood Gerber’s Fairy Garden mysteries is a perfect read for Laura Childs readers and all fans of whimsy and charm.
With a theater foundation tea and an art show planned at Violet Vickers’s estate, Courtney is hired to create charming fairy gardens for the event. It’s not so charming, however, when her best friend Meaghan’s ex-boyfriend turns out to be Violet’s latest artistic protégé. Even worse, not long after Meaghan locks horns with him, his body is found in her yard, bludgeoned with an objet d’murder.
There’s a gallery of suspects, from an unstable former flame to an arts and crafts teacher with a sketchy past. But when the cops focus on Meaghan’s business partner, who’s like a protective older brother to her, and discover he also has a secret financial motive, Courtney decides to draw her own conclusions. Fearing they’re missing the forest for the trees, and with some help from Fiona the sleuthing fairy, she hopes to make them see the light . . .
