A murder, a mystery, and a shocking family secret

Eccentric heiress Maida Westabrook spends hours alone studying nature and reading books. She’s settled into a quiet, simple, “ordinary” life in California, where she is free to explore tidepools, devour folklore and tend to her garden. 

Arthur Hart, a prickly solicitor recruited by the Society for the Protection of Natural Magic,  needs Maida’s help to solve a murder.  She’s the only one who can get the bookstore to reappear and restore balance to the magical community of Primrose Court.  

Maida thinks she knows the difference between fact and fiction until a magical bookshop mysteriously vanishes in Boston, and she abruptly learns the truth about her family, herself, and her undeniable connection to the extraordinary establishment.

But to claim her inheritance, she must leave her safe, comfortable, mundane existence behind.

As Maida learns more about her legacy and connects with the magical community of Primrose Court, she discovers the parts of herself that have always been missing. To save the bookshop, Maida must face her fears, embrace her true identity, and join the fight against the dark forces that threaten the supernatural ecosystem.
