9,95 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Welcome to Perky's Books & Gifts, where gardening books blossom into bouquets, cookbooks sizzle with succulent juices, and military history books can be lethal. Don't mind the mutilated body behind the werewolf display, or the fact that the cafe manager is an egregore; Frankenstein was one, too. The story of Perky's Books & Gifts begins with murder and ends with true love. It is told by Madison, Perky's night manager. She must band with her quirky (maybe just plain crazy) staff to figure out just what is making the books spring to life and terrorize the store and its customers. Does it have something to do with the new café worker, the possible new tribe of owners, the no-nonsense Colonel, or the mysterious lady who just suddenly appears at a café table, only to disappear just as suddenly with only a feather remaining? Perky's Books & Gifts; a place where you can find murder, mystery, love, monsters, demons, and giant festive hats. All of that, and books too! 1. Language: English. Narrator: Holly Adams. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/acx0/064829/bk_acx0_064829_sample.mp3. Digital audiobook in aax.
