Every book tells two stories—one written on the pages with pen and ink, and one woven into the paper, a story of the soul. The Lane women have the gift of bibliomancy. They can read both.
But Cassie Lane doesn’t see this as a gift. For her, it is a curse because the book magic comes with a price--the Lane women die young and the men are lost to the sea. As soon as she’s able, she leaves Laurel Point, Oregon, running from her past and her fate, ending up on the Outer Banks of North Carolina. There she meets Leo Hawthorne and lives a perfect life with him in an old Sea Captain’s house.
Perfect, that is, until an old book foretells the future, and the curse that has plagued the Lane women comes true for Cassie.
Twenty years later, Cassie and Leo's children, twins Pippin and Grey, are back in Devil's Cove. Long forgotten secrets surface and an old crime comes to light. Now Pippin must learn how to be a bibliomancer if she is to discover the truth about her father and continue his effort to stop the curse.
Two best-selling authors, one magical universe.
In the Book Magic Mystery Series, best-selling authors Melissa Bourbon and Wendy Lyn Watson bring you the story of cousins Pippin Lane Hawthorne and Cora Lane. The cousins live on opposite coasts (Pippin in Devil’s Cove, North Carolina, and Cora in Laurel Point, Oregon), but they share the family gift of bibliomancy: the ability to foresee the future and unravel the past with the help of the books we love. Join Pippin and Cora as they use their otherworldly power to solve mysteries in their respective worlds.
Murder in Devil’s Cove by Melissa Bourbon is a book I have been eagerly anticipating every since I saw the title and read the blurb. The storyline is eerie and unique and I love how I felt like I didn’t know how it was going to play out. Once I sat down and started reading this one, I was hooked. I really appreciated the family tree as well as the map of the town at the beginning of the book. Those little details really help bring the story alive. Magic plus an entertaining mystery pulled me in and wouldn’t let me go. I want to visit Devil’s Cove and get wrapped up in the magic and mystery. This is a five-star read for me, and I’m really excited to read more in this series. And I think it’s going to be really fun reading books written by another author as well but in the same world.
