This was a cute cozy mystery. The Crypt family is comical and I enjoyed the overall story. There were enough potential suspects to keep me guessing until the end. I was a little annoyed that the heroine kind of stumbled on the answer of 'who dun it' rather than truly piecing everything together, but hey, it was still a cute story.

I thought this was a fun book. I loved the characters. I definitely enjoyed Tempest's family. Her family has some kick ass women in it. Frank is an interesting demon and seems to like to cause trouble. Wiggles just doesn't seem like an appropriate name for a hellhound, though. However, it does make me smile ; )

Sugar and Hellhounds

Creative and cute. Light fare for easy distraction. Enjoyed the constant use of sweets and the appearance of a hellhound. Looking forward to the next Crypt family adventure, especially if Aunt Queenie comes along for the ride.

When the going gets tough, Tempest steps in,

Her family stay at home to make sure demons don't break through but she tracks escaped ones for the angel police force as she can't be around her sister for long. When they were children a demon tried to kill her sister but she managed to trap him. Inside of her. Sometimes he breaks free and to stop him she limits the time at home and her business.

It's Better To Be Lucky...

...than good, they say. In this case, it's better to be good and this book is. The first in a new series by this author, it's a delight!

A cool cast of characters, including witches, angels, a hellhound and a demon with a sweet tooth, leads us along the trail of cookie crumbs left by the killer of a mayoral candidate. A wonderfully twisty plot keeps you hooked right through to its clever end.

I voluntarily read an Advance Reader Copy and loved it so much that I bought it

So, a new series from KE O'Connor.
Luck of the Witch is the first book of her new 'Crypt Witch Cozy Mystery Series'.
I really enjoyed reading this book. The main characters (Tempest Crypt, her sister Aurora and the rest of their family and friends - and not so friends) already seem familiar and well rounded. All in all, without giving any plot spoilers, I reckon that this could be her best series yet. So give it a read and get to meet the people of Willow Tree Falls.
Loved it!

What a great start to a new series. Tempest and her family are one of a kind. Looking forward to learning more about her unusual abilities. Wiggles is very funny. Loved the part with the sunglasses. Sounds like a fun place to live.

What a fun book!

Magic, demon-catching, a dog becoming a hellhound, a family tradition of demon-fighting, all in a fascinating little town where non-magical tourists miss seeing the magic right in front of fhem!

An amusing and exciting story. Kept me interested enough to buy the second book in the series. K E O’Connor is an ingenious writer with a enchant for creating fascinating characters.

This is a cozy witch-oriented mystery story. Tempest Crypt lives in Willow Tree Falls and her family, witches, keep order over an underground prison for demons. Tempest has her own problem, though, a demon kept within her that she has to keep in control. It had tried to get at her sister, Aurora, and Tempest was able to save her.

Since it's a cozy mystery there is a murder, of course, and her sister is arrested by the quite incompetent group of Angels that serves as a police force. (More like the

Different Twist on a Mystery

The world for this mystery series seems dominated by angels and demons with one family of witches helping to keep the demons in check. Our protagonist, Tempest Crypt, has a few extra powers that include being able to hold a demon inside herself. Of course, the demon doesn’t like the situation.

The stage is set when Aurora, Tempest’s sister, is accused of murder. Tempest is determined to clear her sister’s name by finding the murder.

Demons inside!

Tempest Crypt is a demon fighting witch. And has a demon inside her, not that it makes a difference in her demon fighting capabilities.
When her sister is accused of murder, and then arrested, Tempest will stop at nothing to clear her name.

This cozy paranormal mystery features a family of demon fighting witches, and the residents of a small, magical town.
Romance is very slow burn, there are a couple of interested men, but nothing happens with either, and Tempest is only really inter

I liked that this is a little bit dark, because that's my jam, but I never entirely bought into the premise. Maybe there just wasn't enough context for the relationship between the angels and the demons and the environment of the town. The thread of the encroaching tourists was something that could have really paid off, since it got increasingly difficult for the protagonist to keep her situation under wraps, but that was all but dropped early on. I also found her investigative technique way too ...more
Witches, Angels, and a demon called Frank

A fun way to pass a few hours. Tempest is a tough, sassy and independent woman who struggles with the burden of Frank, a demon, who possessed Tempest and is difficult to control when she is near her sister, Aurora.

However, now that Aurora is under suspicion of murdering mayoral candidate Deacon (who just so happened to be dating her), Tempest must stay strong and find the killer before Frank can finish off Aurora.

Too cutesy for my taste!

This is a definite cozy mystery! The murderer caught me by surprise but the story was too cutesy for my taste. The names for the stores and the characters were as sweet as Frank’s taste for sugar. I am also getting tired of stories where the family expects one of them, in this case, Tempest to solve the mystery and prove her sister didn’t commit the murder. Why can’t they all work together? Why is Tempest her sister’s keeper and what makes her special so that only she can

A ok I really enjoyed

It’s hard to read something new and interesting in a genre that has a ton of books. Well, this author did just that. Tempest is such a different character in a different kind of town that was so much fun to read. There was a lot of thought and detail put into this story and it shows. I loved every word.

Demon hunter

Tempest is a demon hunting witch. Her family guards the demon prison, it is their inheritance. Tempest also has a gift, though she uses it only when absolutely necessary. She can swallow the demon, then eject him once inside the prison cell. Except Frank, the body sharing demon who won't leave. Great read!

Intriguing Witch Cozy

Wonderful characters enhance this cozy witch mystery. The author makes Willow Tree Falls sound like your neighbor with magic! Enjoyable story with strong female characters, handsome men and the irrepressible dog, Wiggles. Have a fun adventure, five into this story of magic and intrigue.

I've read two books now about a witch and I think I need to give up on them.. I can't seem to get into them. Tempest Crypt is the name of the witch in this one and she has a demon she calls Frank living inside of her. I didn't much like Tempest but got a kick out of her grandma and her aunt Queenie and her bloodhound the talking Wiggles.

I thoroughly enjoyed this book, it was well written with a little humour and lots of twists and turns.
Can recommend as a great read for those that like the Witchy cosy mystery books that are a little light hearted and easy to read.

A good mystery.

Tempest must find the murderer of a mayoral candidate to clear her sister's name. I like Tempest , her family and Hellhound. There are plenty of suspects and motives. I like the plot and humor.

An interesting concept. A mixture of intermarriages produced exotic creatures. Tempest Crypt is a witch with a demon, whom she captured while saving her sister, imprisoned inside her. Now she has to save her sister from jail.
