This was definitely a fun book. I loved that all her spells were nice spells and that she refused to do hexes. I am curious about Jason and his predicament. I like him and think he could be good for Maddie. I will most likely read the next book in the series because I want to know more about Jason.

Barely a 3

I had been rather enjoying this one but then I had two big issues with the ending. First, the sleuth didn't figure it out. The killer revealed themselves. I despise that technique because usually it's a cheat to keep from providing sufficient clues in the story. On top of that, it ended with a hook for the next book. So I'm thoroughly frustrated and aargh over it. Cheap tricks don't make readers want to come back.

All Wrap Into One!

What an awesome book! Jannie Nell is a new author to me, and I'm so happy that my book club chose this book to read! I can't tell you how much I enjoyed it! It was full of mystery, excitement, and possibly, a little bit of love? I can't wait to begin book 2, and I hope that Jason can be set free! Here is a quote that I really feel sums up my feeling of a romance blossoming, "The Equinox was less than two weeks away. My spirits soared with the hope that one day very soon I’d be

Secrets, witches, revenge, and potions. The mayor of this little town and his followers are trying to get the witches potion shop shut down, because they all believe she is dabbling in some type of crazy curses, but she isn't. The only thing she did was she accidentally stuck a man in a tree, but she is working on a potion to get him out. It makes for a good first cozy book by the author. I felt the book slow down in a couple of areas but I did enjoy this cozy overall.

Secrets, Spells & Murder

Awesome read with awesome characters and storyline. Witch does good spells and has a shop, of course some people are totally against the “witchcraft”. Two murders happen after receiving “bad spells”. Totally must read to figure this one out! Definitely a must read!!

I chose this book at random as I sometimes do. I was pleasantly surprised. I found the story and characters to intriguing and engaging. It leaves the reader guessing as to whom the killer was. The story was a good reminder of how ugly people can be when scared. This book is definitely worth reading.

This is a free book on kobo and I really enjoyed this read. It was fast paced, fun, and kept me guessing with who did it! The only thing that kept me from rating it 4.5 stars was the few pop culture references that were in the story, which is an element I personally dont enjoy. Otherwise a great and cozy read

Very charming!!

One of the best witchy cozy mysteries I’ve read in ages. This was very well written, with fun characters and a good mystery that kept me guessing. The details of the town and witches were very fun and interesting. Absolutely enjoyed this one!

After reading so many supernatural cozy mysteries, a lot of them end up seeming pretty similar. This definitely wasn't one of them! There were a lot of classic witchy elements, but so many original ideas, too.

Spells and mystery

Sweet cozy with witches and murder. It was a typical cozy, but with a surprise twist. Interesting characters and a great murder mystery, but the back story makes this so worth reading and is going to keep me reading the series.

Secrets, spell & Murder

I thoroughly enjoyed this mystery. Lots of action, twists and turns, a spunky witch and family who cares for one another. I had to read the book in one sitting, just couldn't put it down until the last word was read. Thank you for a lovely book.

I really enjoyed this mystery novel. I loved Maddie, the town dynamic, and the fact that witches are out in the open running their business like everyone else.

This was just a great story and I couldn't put it down.

An enjoyable mystery with 2 murders- almost 3 and a group of witches with a lot of twists and turns and a host of unusual characters. And a nice person who wake monthly from a tree! No spoilers!
