Welcome to the Beautiful Carolina Coast, Home of Magnolia Mysteries
& Author Ellen Elizabeth Hunter


In Wilmington, the azaleas are blooming, the dogwoods are flowering, and the bodies are dropping faster than cherry blossoms on a windy day. But it's spring, and Ashley Wilkes, historic preservationist, is much too distracted by love to give a thought to recent homicides, until one occurs at a garden party where she's a guest. When her client is arrested for murder, Ashley tries her darnedest not to get involved. But she knows the actress is innocent. And just who are her most promising suspects? Why, the entire cast of a hot, new locally-produced television series.

“Surprising and exciting read.” –Wendy O. Willett

“This is the third book in the Magnolia Mystery Series. The series is excellent; very well written and thoroughly enjoyable. The characters are believable and likeable. The descriptions of the refurbishing of old southern homes are interesting and the mystery is interwoven with the relationships of Ashley, Jon, Nick and Melanie. A very exciting cozy!” – Ali 5

“Hunter has an easy-to-read style and a great storyline with Murder at the Azalea Festival. I loved her characters. Hunter did a superb job of imprinting each one in my mind. I'm pretty sure that I've met each of them, except the killer of course. I have to admit that the killer's identity was an explosive surprise. Hunter has a genuine talent for writing. I look forward to her other books in the Magnolia Mystery Series. In truth, I'd buy any book she authors because a talent like hers would easily cross all genre in which she has an interest.” –Kindle Customer
