Paige and her adventurous Aunt Glo inherit a country inn from eccentric GeeGee. They pack up and hit the road, arriving at the charming place they both loved since childhood. Finally!

But more than the room was a secret – it’s a magical place that houses enchanted books.

The club will need to work together to solve the case in order to get out of the book and back to their home.
About Elizabeth Pantley
Shifting and Shenanigans by Elizabeth Pantley is a cute cozy mystery. Page and her aunt, Gloria or “Glo” have inherited an inn from GeeGee. They move to the small town of Cascade Springs, Colorado. The place holds many fond memories for both ladies. They learn that there is a secret library under the inn. They are required to start up a cozy mystery book with eight members (they are included in the eight). The ladies soon find six people who wish to join and organize their first meeting. They begin the process of deciding which book shall be their first. Paige reads the first page of a book and . . . I am not going to spoil it for you.
I thought Shifting and Shenanigans had a unique premise. The author has an engaging writing style. It reminds me of chatting with old friends. There is a cast of offbeat, diverse characters. I find Zelda to be a hoot. Frank is another entertaining character. The characters antics (especially Zell and Frank) will have you laughing. The mystery was fun and different. Shifting and Shenanigans is an amusing story. I hope we get to know more about our characters in future stories. I feel they need fleshing out especially Paige and Glo. I like the length of the story. It can easily be finished in an afternoon (great way to spend a rainy afternoon). It will be interesting to see what adventure the group goes on in the second book in A Magical Mystery Book Club series (Vampires and Villains). If you like to read paranormal cozy mysteries, then you will enjoy reading Shifting and Shenanigans. Shifting and Shenanigans is a witty tale with a charming country inn, a magical library, a cozy mystery book club, a sociable cat, a curious crime, an unpredicted revelation, and a romantic twist.
