Andrea’s Pick of the Week: The Secret, Book and Scone Society by Ellery Adams | Shelf Life

The Secret, Book and Scone Society fits that bill perfectly. In the small mountain town of Miracle Springs, North Carolina, people come from near and far to visit the local healing springs, stay at the luxury resort, and shop in the unique stores downtown. At Miracle Books, owner Nora Pennington specializes in finding just the right books for whatever her customers are going through. Then the murder of a visitor from nearby Asheville brings together Nora, Hester, and two other local women, all of whom are holding back secrets from their past, and they form the Secret, Book and Scone Society. As they get pulled deeper into solving the murder mystery, they develop a friendship that helps them to let go of their secrets and begin to trust again.

Added by 15 of our members. As the owner of Miracle Books, Nora Pennington figures all the wet weather this spring is at least good for business. The local inns are packed with stranded travelers, and among them Nora finds both new customers and a new friend, the sixtysomething Sheldon, who starts helping out at the store. Since a little rain never hurt anyone, Nora rides her bike over to the flea market one sodden day and buys a bowl from Danny, a Cherokee potter. It'll make a great present for Nora's EMT boyfriend, but the next day, a little rain turns into a lot of rain, and the Miracle River overflows its banks.

Thank you! The ladies of Miracle Springs work in mysterious ways. Former librarian Nora Pennington, owner of Miracle Books, helps people deal with their troubles by recommending specific reading material. Estella Sadler, owner of Magnolia Salon and Spa, is a high-maintenance gal with a bad reputation with men. Quiet June Dixon works at the Miracle Springs thermal pools. All are haunted by terrible events that continue to cast long shadows. Parrish was one of the partners in Pine Ridge Properties, a new housing development going up near Mineral Springs, and June, who talked to him at the pools, said he seemed to have regrets about the project.

As usual, raving reviews rarely correspond to reality when reading a book - at least in my experience. I found this book very average and rather boring. The characters - all strong and scarred women, true - are overall very predictable and stereotyped. And predictable is the key word here: there is absolutely no suspense, no mystery, no thrill. I and probably the majority of the readers understood pretty soon what was going on, so there was no surprise at all. We are far, far away from Agatha Christie. I appreciate the effort to show the support and the understanding that these women are giving each other, but I found better insights into female friendship in Theodora Goss' The Extraordinary Adventures of the Athena Club series.
