About the Book

The Good Pharmacist’s Deadly Secrets uses the fae lore from Gordon’s The King’s Jewel Series in a fun new series that combines a cozy who-done-it with humor and a lovable Cocker Spaniel.

“Our lovable protagonist, Sloan, is a fairy-like creature living in magical camouflage among humans in the Poconos. Her life is turned upside down when she finds herself at the wrong place at the wrong time, landing her in hot water as a suspect in a murder case. With a little help from some of her magical friends, Sloan must find the real killer before it’s too late.” Reedsy Discovery
