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 . . . Praise for Murder’s No Votive Confidence “A charming mystery with believable, likeable characters. Check it out.” —Suspense Magazine
About the Author
Christin Brecher was born and raised in New York City. The idea to write the Nantucket Candle Maker series sprang from her life-long connection to the small island off the coast of Massachusetts. Spending summers there as a child, Christin read from her family’s library of mystery novels, after which she began to imagine stories inspired by the island’s whaling heyday, its notoriously foggy nights, and during long bike rides to the beach. After many years in marketing for the publishing industry, followed by years raising her children, The Nantucket Candle Maker Mysteries are Christin’s debut series.

"Murder Makes Scents is a fun, action-packed read. The story line is a bit more internationally based than many cozy mysteries, but Christin Brecher delivers a solid and very entertaining story line. I look forward to future visits with the characters, the town, and the Wick & Flame shop!" —Fresh Fiction
