Coriander the fairy runs the fortune teller's tent in a cursed renaissance faire where the traveling performers are all magical beings who are under a curse that does not allow them to ever leave. On the day this story takes place, the body of another member of the faire falls out of her caravan when she goes to set up her tent. Calling her friend Fraxi for help, it is at this point that the lazy and incompetent sheriff comes by and sees Fraxi touching the body as she tries to see who it is and immediately arrests her for the murder. Now it is up to Coriander to figure out who actually killed Winston, why, and how they did it so that Fraxi won't be the one punished for the crime.
Like the first three books in this series, this was a very fun read that held my interest from the beginning through to the end, where there were a few very big surprises. It was well written and very entertaining. I would recommend this book to anyone who enjoys fantasy, cozy mysteries, and renaissance faires. I don't think you'll be disappointed with this or any of the previous books in the series. I know I’m looking forward to seeing what happens in the next book in this series.
