Summary of the Book:

Stella Wright loves creating candles at her Nantucket store—and she also has a burning passion for justice. Now, after visiting a perfume conference, she must solve a vial crime 

Stella and her globe-trotting mom, Millie, have come home from a perfume industry conference in Paris, where their trip was marred by witnessing the stabbing death of a young man. It’s a relief for Stella to be back on her picturesque island, with the comforting company of her cat, Tinker. But lingering danger may have followed them back across the ocean.

After someone breaks into her candle store, the Wick & Flame, Stella starts feeling spooked. And just as things threaten to ignite, Millie suffers a blow to the head. Stella receives an anonymous note claiming that her mother smuggled a secret formula out of France—and threatening her life if it isn’t returned. Now Stella’s picked up the scent of a cold-hearted criminal and an intriguing puzzle, and things are about to get wicked . . .

My Personal Review: I received a copy of this book for a fair and honest review. This is the second book in a series and Stella and her mother Millie has returned home from attending a perfumery conference in Paris. Now that they are back in Nantucket. There is another mystery to solve. Someone breaks into the Wick & Flame. There is a note that claims Millie smuggled a top secret formula from France back to the States. They know they are dealing with a scary criminal. I am enjoying this series.

My Rating of the Book: 4 Stars
