"Miracle Springs, North Carolina, is a place of healing. Strangers flock here hoping the natural hot springs, five-star cuisine, and renowned spa can cure their ills. If none of that works, they often find their way to Miracle Books, where, over a fresh-baked 'comfort' scone from the Gingerbread House bakery, they exchange their stories with owner Nora Pennington in return for a carefully chosen book. That's Nora's special talent -- prescribing the perfect novel to ease a person's deepest pain and lighten their heaviest burden. When a visiting businessman reaches out to Nora for guidance, she knows exactly which novels will help. But before he can keep their appointment at Miracle Books, he's found dead on the train tracks. Stunned, Nora forms the Secret, Book, and Scone Society, a group of damaged souls yearning to gain trust and earn redemption by helping others. To join the society, members must divulge their darkest secret -- the terrible truth that brought each of them to Miracle Springs in the first place. Determined to uncover the truth behind the businessman's demise, the women meet in Nora's cramped and cozy bookstore to share stories and trade support. And as they untangle a web of corruption, they also discover their own courage, purpose, and a sisterhood that will carry them through every challenge -- proving it's never too late to turn the page and start over..." --… (mais)

A nice blend of two of my favorite genres: cozy mystery and books about books. This also has just a touch of magical realism to it, with a bibliotherapist who prescribes books to help people with their emotional and mental challenges and a baker who intuits just the right ingredients to make the perfect comfort scone for them too. The four friends who join forces to become the Secret, Book, and Scone Society, sharing their deepest secrets as they unravel a murder coverup, are an engaging mix of personalities to spend time with. I'm putting the next in the series on my TBR list.. ( )

Miracle Springs is a place people visit for healing, but the four main protagonists of this story have moved there for new beginnings. Each has a secret hidden deep within herself, and it takes a murder for them to reveal their secrets to each other. They form a society, and the bond that unites them is their shared shameful secrets. Each of the four women are able to help visitors on their paths to healing, with books, scones, spa visits, and more. When a man is murdered, they resolve to avenge his death, especially when the sherif says it was suicide. The novel is many layered, with the back stories of the women, the current death, and a real estate development that may not be on the up and up. The book is a bit vague and slow moving at first, but it doesn’t take long to be fully engrossed in the mystery. The characters are complex, and it will be interesting to see how their lives evolve in future books. This audio version was nicely narrated by Cris Dukehart. Background music played throughout all of the narration, and while at times it did enhance the tale, at other times it seemed more of a distraction. ( )

To be honest I wasn’t expecting to really like this book much since I haven’t read a mystery novel since ‘The Boxcar Children’ in elementary school. But, I greatly enjoyed it. There were a few leaps of logic that didn’t seem fluid and some times we find out later that even though a scene didn’t mention something happening, it supposedly did. However, on the whole it held together and made sense.

I personally liked the constant book references - being a book lover myself I really connected with this aspect of the book. And I did like how we slowly learned more about the backstory of each of the leading 4 female characters. On the whole they felt well developed and each was of course different from the others. There was some clique things throughout the book, but, I don’t feel they ruined it or overwhelmed it either.

If you’re not sure if mystery is your thing or not, this might be a light way to try it out. ( )

The Secret, Book and Scone Society by Ellery Adams
This is the first book of A Secret, Book and Scone Society series and it was wonderful. I found it very hard to put down.
Nora, Hester, June and Estella all have secrets and have never spoken about what had broken them until they became friends. One by one, they grew to trust each other and slowly opened up about what was buried deep within them.
This is a cozy mystery but with a little dark side to it. I enjoyed reading how Nora is starting to feel a little something towards the handsome Jedediah as he does for her. I’m hoping that he will tell his story in the next book so their friendship takes the next step.
There is a lot of corruption with the Sheriff, Bank Manager and realtor to keep things going not to mention the investors.
This story has everything a cozy should have and more. The plot was well planned and written.

The Secret, Book & Scone Society is an entertaining mystery that has a lot of my favorite things books, food, mineral springs and a edgy hairdresser. When four ladies with secret backgrounds combine forces to solve a murder then look out. The main character Nora is physically scarred from a fire and her secret pulls the story together. Empathy and healing are the women’s secret powers. I have only one complaint; there are two loose ends which bothered me and I wondered if anyone else caught them. Anyway I have to read the next book in the series cause I’m hooked. Read on Kindle. ( )
