Join Charlii as she settles back into her magically protected hometown of Honeysuckle Hollow, where a glass of sweet tea can cure almost anything non-magical. She is drawn into another murder investigation, assisting the intellectually appealing detective. But fate also keeps her out of the path of a wolf-shifter, Dash Channing, that captivates the attention of her wild side. It doesn't keep her from missing him.

Someone is determined to steal the town's secrets, including Charli 's tracking

Really happy with this. Better than the last. Full review to come.

Picking up with the residents of Honeysuckle Hollow about two months after the conclusion of the previous book, Sweet Tea & Spells opens with Clementine’s bridal shower. Although protagonist Charli doesn’t see eye-to-eye with Clementine’s mother, Aunt Nora, and Clementine is marrying Charli’s ex, Tucker, Charli feels she should make an attempt to connect with her only family. Unfortunately, things go wrong with cake and Aunt Nora blames Charli. This is where we first meet bad guy Duke, a man ...more

Charli has to deal with many changes both personally and beyond and Dash is gone without any form of communication with anyone. This story is really giving it's audience something to look forward to. The characters are expanding, the story lines a just wonderful and of course then there is the murder that needs solved. Can Honeysuckle go back to before Mason's declaration? If not even more changes are in store for Charli. Can't wait to see where this goes from here! I voluntarily reviewed this ...more

I loved it!

I really like Charli, she’s a great character that I enjoy reading about. She’s up to her eyeballs in murder and mysteries this time again and it was fun to read. Her and Mason make a great team and I loved reading about the, solving the case.
Charli is back and more than murder is about to strike the town. Her cousin, Clementine, is preparing for her upcoming nuptials. The town doesn’t really expect Charli to be in attendance because of who Clementine is marrying…Charli’s ex-fiancée. Turns out that there is a serious troublemaker in town by the name of Duke Aikens. There is something off about him, and it’s rubbing more than a few people the wrong way. It all starts with a cake, and escalates from there to…murder. Duke has more ...more

I found this book on Booksprout while I was making a review for someone else. This is my first book of Bella Falls,though this is book 3! (I will be purchasing the others:).
I have not read any books of this genre before, so was not sure what to expect. Well I was hooked from page one, but I know I need to read the first two, so I know what is happening/happened. But, you can read this as a standalone if you wish.I found the characters worked well together and the plot was very good.I did feel

The upcoming wedding of Charli’s ex-fiance Tucker to her cousin is right around the corner and Charli is trying to be at her best. When the death of the caterer/soon to be local restaurateur happens just before the nuptials all chaos unwinds.

Charli finds herself on the case when Tucker is acting suspiciously and seems to be prime suspect number one. Can she put her feelings aside and work once again with Warden Mason to solve the case?

This is a delightful cozy that is filled with mystery,

Selling information or worse?

Great read. Attending her cousin's engagement party has left her with mixed feelings. At one stage she had been the one in her cousin's place. The feelings intensified with the arrival of the chef in charge of the catering. Obnoxious, rude and arrogant. Is it any surprise that just hours later his dead body was found? Who killed him and why? Was it due to the book he had? Suspects galore, the town is in meltdown as another town tries to take over, evidence being

Honeysuckle, a small town full with paranormals, is where Charli lives. She is a tracker, a witch, whose specialty is to find things, and that includes clues for solving a murder. Together with the wardens, her brother and one of her best friends, she tackles another murder and this time one of the main suspects is her ex-fiance.
Intriguing small town life, funny, quirky characters and an interesting plot keep you reading until the end - if possible without any interruption.

Cozy Paranormal Mystery
What a great story! It is laugh-out-loud funny and cozy. The plot is tight and very well done. This book is third in the series and stands alone fairly well. I do think it best to read the series in order as it's good for the reader to have all of the inside information. This is a brand new series for me as well as a brand new author. I generally don't care for paranormal stories. But this one is about as realistic as a paranormal can be. I want to read the entire series

I miss Dash but Mason is a nice distraction for now. This story had me on edge the entire time I just could not stop reading it even though I was preparing myself for a nurses visit. Though I was hoping for more info about Charlie's background it was still satisfying to see who was most important to her present life. The author achieved everything she set out to do to satisfy our curious nature's for justice and karma in some ways yet keep us still wanting more. I really hope Dash is still

The third book in this series and every book just gets better than the last one, there is so much going on in this story. The Poems and spells that are added to the book have just the right touches to make the story, I am going back to read this book again. There is suspense, murder, drama and I found myself smiling at some of the things that happen in the book. I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review.

Wonderful southern paranormal mystery

Bella Falls is an excellent author that weaves mysteries with unexpected twist. Each character is created with just enough complexity. The most important aspect to her book for myself is that she actually gets the small town southern culture without being over the top. She's also imaginative in an almost realistic way. This is a series that I highly recommend.
A delightful read; I devoured it in an afternoon as my treat for finishing a grueling summer slate of classes for grad school. Full of southern charm with a cast of relatable characters. Having read all the offerings in the series, I am looking forward to the next episode of adventures in Honeysuckle Hollow...and still conflicted over how I want the potential love triangle to turn out. (Every time I think I am leaning one way, the author gives me a reason to lean the other way.)

Great Series

The mystery gets very personal for the heroine in this book. Dash has taken off so Mason has the limelight as the romantic interest. But he is complex, and takes his own brief respite. I really liked this mystery. It also is a little on the complex side, which made for a great read. I hated to come to the end of the story but I want to see what happens in Charli's life.

At first the reading was interesting and I started to get into the characters, not a format I’m used to reading, meaning that no-ones hiding that they are a witch or vampire. So that was something that was intriguing and as the more I read the more interesting the characters became, I hope to read more of this series and can’t wait to read about the rest of the town. I definitely recommend this book.

A fun read on a hot afternoon. I really enjoyed this book, and love Charli’s character. You’ll find yourself chuckling at parts of the story, while being intrigued with trying to figure out who is behind the prank war.
Charli’s Nana manages to rope her into teaching a class, and Charli takes a rather unconventional approach to teaching her young students. Get ready for laugh out loud moments.
I look forward to seeing what happens in future books.

A great read! The characters are well formed and presented, and continue to grow and evolve. Charli is a force to be reconned with and her witchy powers are growing and evolving as well.
I find the spells/poems to be completely delightful!
And come on! "Bless Your Heart and Hex Your Hiney"? Beyond cute!!

Another awesome book from Bella Falls. These books keep getting better and better what can I say I am hooked. One question why did they put her in the lost and found section if not for kicks and giggles right and that is exactly what I did and I laughed out loud as the book continued.

I received an ARC of this book so I missed the first two. I am going to fix that oversight immediately! After reading this, I realize that this is a tragedy of the highest magnitude and can not be left alone. This is one of the best paranormal cozies I've read in a while. The characters, mystery, romantic element, and magic kept me up past my bedtime, but I couldn't put it down. I loved it!
