A Glimmer of a Clue (A Fairy Garden Mystery)
by Daryl Wood Gerber
A Glimmer of a Clue is the perfect beach read! By the end of the book, you too will believe in fairies.
~Diane Reviews Books
I really enjoy this author’s writing voice and the way she crafts a plot, and A Glimmer of a Clue is no exception.
~Reading Is My SuperPower
The Fairy Garden Mysteries take place in a wonderfully chic California town where some people can see the fairies all around the gardens . . . The town is filled with charming shops, and the book has so much background on fairies and gardens that you’re completely immersed in a glimmering culture of fun and fantasy.
~This is My Truth Now
This is a very unique story with unique elements. I enjoyed the fairy garden shop setting, complete with a live fairy. The characters are fun and exciting.
Reading, A GLIMMER OF A CLUE in one sitting wasn’t my plan for the day. However, a couple of chapters in, I knew I wouldn’t put it down until the last page. It was a well-plotted mystery, within a magical tale.
~Lisa Ks Book Reviews
This book is exactly what I look for in a cozy mystery. Interesting and likable sleuths, plenty of suspects, a little humor to keep it from being too heavy, but still a great mystery.
~The Book’s the Thing
Just like a fairy garden A GLIMMER OF A CLUE is a joyful mixture of fun and whimsy with surprises that appear when you least expect them.
~Cozy Up With Kathy
The characters are well developed and quite diverse. The settings detailed and exceptionally creative. I felt an emotional attachment to many persons as the story unfolded. I even quite liked the detective. This is a great escape read and was a lot of fun.
I am a huge fan of Gerber’s work due to her skilled writing style but I especially enjoyed book one of this new series. This made me eager to get my hands on this second book which is just as good, if not better, than book one.
~Books a Plenty Book Reviews
A Glimmer of a Clue is a wonderful cozy mystery book full of charm and wit, friends and foes, murder and mayhem, clues and red herrings, and lots more! You’re not going to be able to put this enchanting book down, so be prepared to lose some sleep!
~Christy’s Cozy Corners
A Glimmer of a Clue is an enchanting cozy mystery with fairy garden fun, delectable delights, pickleball play, aggressive arguments, and flitting fairies.
~The Avid Reader
I love the magical element of the fairies in this series, they really add to the story and make it interesting. This series also makes me want to go out and make a fairy garden.

Courtney Kelly has a shop full of delights, a cat named Pixie, a green thumb—and a magical touch when it comes to garden design. But in Carmel-by-the-Sea, things aren’t all sweetness and fairy lights . . .
When Courtney’s friend Wanda gets into a ponytail-pulling wrestling match in public with a nasty local art critic, Courtney stops the fight with the help of a garden hose. But Lana Lamar has a talent for escalating things and creating tension, which she succeeds in doing by threatening a lawsuit, getting into yet another scuffle—in the midst of an elegant fundraiser, no less—and lobbing insults around like pickleballs.
Next thing Courtney knows, Lana is on the floor, stabbed with a decorative letter opener from one of Courtney’s fairy gardens, and Wanda is standing by asking “What have I done?” But the answer may not be as obvious as it seems, since Wanda is prone to sleepwalking and appears to be in a daze. Could she have risen from her nap and committed murder while unconscious? Or is the guilty party someone else Lana’s ticked off, like her long-suffering husband? To find out, Courtney will have to dig up some dirt . . .
