Nosy butt Blake Simmons has the dirt on almost everyone in town. He knows about Nann's witchcraft, Zinnia's time of the month (full moon that is), and Tink's Spock ears. He's also wanting Founder's House, Nann's home place. So when he ends up dead, Nann is at the top of the suspect list.

Deputy Keith, Nann's almost main squeeze, doesn't think she's guilty, but most of the

Blake Simmons wants to get his hands on Founder's House, the home of Nancy Ann Szymanski (“Nann”), any way that he can. His latest attempt was through blackmail, threatening to report Nann for tax fraud since she was given tax breaks for her historic home which isn’t actually “historical”. The true Founder’s House is a tiny log cabin – still on the property as a garden shed -- but not the Victorian she lives in! She could be forced to pay all the deductions back at a cost of $180,000. He ...more

When Smarmy, manipulative, blackmailing Blake Simmons tries to force Nann to sell her house yet again, this was the last straw. Blake had managed to find some sort of loophole that will cost Nann enormous back taxes which will mean that she will no longer be able to afford to keep her house and when her friends Zinna and Tink come to Nann's aid, Blake threatens to tell the world that they were magical creatures. But this time, Blake had push someone too far and he got his comeuppance - and ended ...more

Evil Blake, who was behind a land grab scam with some buddies in the past, is back with new efforts- including blackmail.
He seems to have an uncanny amount of magical info and other skeletons on many town members.

Another money grab and anti-magic effort - you would think that area power mongers would tire of those sorts of assaults. Not so much.

Nann manages to eventually put together the clues to resolve the situation, save her house, pig and friends, and tee up the info on the murder for

Blake Simmons wants Nann's house and will do anything to get it, including blackmail. He ends up dead and all fingers point to Nann as the murderer. Her boyfriend Deputy Keith Schwenk doesn't believe she did it, but they can't date anymore until Nann is cleared. This was a fun book, lots of great characters, I especially loved the talking pig. These are my kind of books, mystery, murder, paranormal, romance all rolled into one. So many of these books start to sound the same, but this has some ...more

I absolutely loved Nann and her two friends. Nann is a druid. But she doesn’t use her magic to get ahead. She is smart, and won’t back down. When she is the main suspect in a murder she and her two friends solve it. Her friends are funny, and I especially like her talking pot belly pig. We really get to know more about the people in the town, both the good and the devious. Many plots have been put together to take away Nann‘s house, but hopefully no more.

Bored

I I my read halfway through because I was bored with the. Narrative portion of the story it was to long. Skipped right to eighteen and felt better about the ending, didn't feel like I missed much because I already figured it out as soon I I heard the one person. Description and attitude. Sorry, it's what happens when I read mysteries and it seems.all.these books are giving the same suspense and criminals obvious personalities. Good series though waited a long time for this one but a little

When Nann is accused of murder. you know a few things to be true. 1. She didn't do it. 2. Nann, Tink, and Zinnia will figure out who really murdered Blake Simmons. 3. This is gonna be fun! And you would be right on all points. Combine a Druid, a Fae, an alligator and a talking pig, and the result is a delightful adventure of the magical type that is hard to put down. This series is so much fun and keeps me wanting more!
ps. The author even solved a mystery from the first book! I didn't see that

This is such a fun series! A Druid, Fae, WereAlligator and talking pig familiar take on magical high crimes and misdemeanors in Calamity Corners and Port Argent, two very different towns right next to each other. This time Nann is again on the suspect list and she and her friends must solve a non-magical locked door murder to prove her innocence, but you know they're definitely up for it.

It’s not fair! Nann, with 2 n’s (I still love that), is accused of murder again! Sure, she has motive, but still, she’s innocent! Everyone should know that by now. Good thing she has such great friends and her talking pig to help her clear her name. I love this series. It’s always so much fun!

This book cleared up tied up some loose strings from the very first book through this newest edition. Before reading this book, it would help if the other books had been read in order to understand the plot lines and the characters.

Excellent Mystery – Cozy, Paranormal, Humorous
This fun story is part of the Calamity Corners Cozy Witch mystery Series. I think that it stands alone well, but I have read the whole series and may not be the best judge. It is funny with a great plot with perfect execution. The final reveal was a good surprise. I received this ARC book for free from Booksprouts and this is my honest review.

Another excellent story!

This was a really cool locked room mystery! I love how things work in Calamity Corners! Nann, Tink, and Zinnia are way to funny together and I really can't wait for Nann and Keith to take the next steps in their relationship. An excellent story!

A witchy story with a difference! An enemy gets murdered in a locked room.
A Druid stands accused. The murdered man spoke her name in a call to the police station.
Will her pig help her?
