Just in time for Halloween, this is the perfect story to get you in the mood for the witching hour and some crystal ball reading! Author Bethany Blake debuts a para-cozy series I believe will immediately bewitch cozy mystery fans. Heroes come in all sorts of forms and disguises and this new paranormal/witch mystery showcases several of them, and was one of the reasons I enjoyed the story so much. The ending is spellbinding!

Artist Willow Bellamy’s ancestors are witches. She can “read”

What a fun, light read. The characters were a riot! There were enough twists and turns to keep my interest. I enjoyed her take on paranormal events and talents. For a fun afternoon getting lost in a new world, visit with Willow and her friends.

Thoroughly enjoyed this book. It's fun, with plenty of mystery, interesting animals and wit. I highly recommend it, and the other series by this author.

Cute cozy mystery. I must admit I would not of entered the contest for this book if I realized it was about witchcraft (not a fan) although it was not overwhelming in the story.

I didn't really like the way it ended though, the guilty person being wisked off for trial by the witches, what about the rest of people in town - wouldn't they want justice or wonder what happened to the person taken.
