Burden of Poof (Bonnie & Clyde Mysteries)
by Julie Anne Lindsey
Burden of Poof is a charming Southern cozy mystery with a comforting cat, refashioned frocks, a determined detective, a rapid rumor mill, a caring community, and busybody Bonnie.
~The Avid Reader
I adore this new setting that Lindsey has created. Through her writing, you’ll feel like you’re right in the center of Bliss.
~Christy’s Cozy Corners
From the downhome Southern charm of protagonist, Bonnie Balfour, to her adorable rescue cat, Clyde, to the witty and humorous dialog, Ms. Lindsey pens an entertaining tale.
~Cinnamon, Sugar, and a Little Bit of Murder
Everything about Burden of Proof was charming. The town of ‘Bliss’ is welcoming and charming. The townsfolk and other shop owners that are introduced make you feel at home and want to visit. Bonnie and her sweet shop were just charming.
~My Reading Journeys
I loved Burden of Poof. The characters, setting, and plot are engaging. The murder isn’t the only theme in the book, giving the book a lot of realism. The book is also full of excellent imagery, character development, and a great story.
~Saph’s Cozy Corner
This series has so much promise and having read other books by this fantastic author I am excited! . . . While I am far from being a fashionista, I have a fondness for vintage clothing, so this setting captured my imagination from the start. I am also a sucker for second chances and fresh starts.
An idyllic town, charming characters, the spark of romance, and a fun mystery make BURDEN OF POOF a great start to a new cozy mystery series.
~Cozy Up With Kathy
. . . a fabulous start to a new cozy mystery series from author Julie Anne Lindsey. . . The mystery is deftly written and kept me on my toes. If you are looking for a cozy with heart, I highly recommend Burden of Poof. You won’t be disappointed!
A page-turner of a mystery, and just when you think you have everything figured out, well, I was surprised by the unexpected.
I loved how the author wrapped this story up, perfect!
Ms. Lindsey has crafted an intelligent mystery with plenty of twists and suspects . . . I loved the reveal. I was kept guessing right up to the very end.
~Escape With Dollycas Into A Good Book
Oh my goodness! What a fun start to a new series by one of my fave cozy authors! A quirky, small Southern town, a swoony new detective, an endearing heroine, a cleverly constructed plot and a bit of magical realism thrown in for good measure? Yes please!
~Reading Is My SuperPower
This book grabbed me from page one. It’s the first of a new series and it’s off to a great start.
~Socrates’ Book Reviews…
There are so many factors to this book that I adored – the characters, the town, the philanthropic endeavors of Bonnie when it came to the young ladies and prom, and Bonnie’s desire to succeed with this new shop, a black rescue cat named Clyde who has a bit of a thieving issue in the store (which works out on Bonnie’s behalf later in the book).
It was a well-written, fast-paced mystery that kept me turning pages. In this one . . . The mystery was well thought out and realistic making this a fun and fast read.

An amateur sleuth named Bonnie and her kitty companion Clyde, with names like those, what could possibly go wrong?
Life hasn’t sparkled too brightly for Bonnie Balfour over the past few years, but a heart-breaking divorce has brought her back to her small rural hometown of Bliss, Georgia, and things are starting to shape up.
The proud new owner of Bless Her Heart—a second chance dress shop and boutique on the town square—Bonnie thinks thirty-eight might not be too late for a fresh start in life after all.
Until a grouchy old widow turns up dead in a pile of donations meant for Bonnie’s shop, and the town’s new detective pins her to the top of his suspect list!
To save her shop, dream and reputation, Bonnie must coordinate clues and stitch together the truth about her innocence, but the unreasonably handsome detective and prying eyes of the local gossip mill are fast fraying her nerves.
When a series of anonymous attacks begin to hem her in, Bonnie fears the real killer is fixing to make her his next victim. Can this amateur sleuth measure up?
