Nice story

I hate to give a two, as the author went to so much effort, but it's a 2.5 for me.

Interesting premise, ok characters, ok plot. Maybe not enough back-plot masterfully woven in to the story, or maybe the next in the series would help seed the characters for me - who knows. I'd probably read the next one.. some day.

A bright beginning to a new fun series about a witch, Sam, who owns a smoothie shop. She always seems to know exactly what to put into the blender to make the perfect drink. The fact that she is an earth witch and grows fabulous fruits and vegetables to use in her shop certainly gives her an advantage. However, the biggest advantage that benefits the entire town, is she is a member of a small coven that protects the town and insure its good fortune. When the water witch in their coven is found ...more

So a Water Witch drowns? It should never have been able to happen!, Amelia Windemere wasn't the most popular Witch in Goodsprings, Georgia, now she is dead and, as a Water Witch the last cause of death should have been drowning, who could have done it? Was it another Witch from the Coven, or was it Witch Hunters? And is it just a coincidence that the town have hired new detectives (twins at that!) just as there is a murder?

I really enjoyed this book, it was an interesting read, there is a good

A full on witchy race to find the truth

A wonderful start to a new series. Lively characters, great imagery, wonderful dialogue, humour, witches, murder and so much more. Full pell mell action that leaves you gasping for breath as the story moves at breakneck speed.
They have kept the secret coven hidden, as had their ancestors before them. Just the four make up the coven but they have had run ins with their water witch. She has been abusing her powers and this latest meeting has her going off in

This was an interesting twist to how a coven works, and it was a really good cozy too! I’ve never encountered a coven that relied on having only 4 members at a time and that each member had one element to their witchcraft. As they found out, losing one of the members and their element, makes for big problems. Plus there was the murder of that witch to solve! I loved how they each used their element to help solve the murder. It was really a fun book.

A great start to a new series. Fast paced, quirky characters set in a town that I would love to live in and lots of laugh-out-loud moments. 4 witches, earth, wind, fire and water have made their homes there and form a secret coven, as their ancestors had before them. Which should mean a happily ever after but not so. The water witch starts abusing her powers and this manages to get her drowned.

I enjoyed this book very much and am looking forward to the next one in this wonderful new series.

I love this new paranormal cozy mystery and I really enjoy the antics of the characters. Tessa, Sam, Mara, and Amelia are the coven witches until a death occurs. A mysteriously suspicious death. I cannot wait for the next book.

Fascinating coven!

Diverse characters created a riveting read. The witches are realistic but still magical and interesting. It’s a great start to a new series, but theres only the first book out at the moment. Most of the book is written well but it is a little bland in some parts with no real romance.

This is the beginning of another wonderful series written by Ms. Barker. This coven of witches seems to be great friends and powerful witches in their own element. The writing is superb along with a quick pace that begs the reader to read until the end. I believe that this series is going to be a hit.

Things are never dull in small towns

This is number one in what I hope will be a larger collection. In this writer's imagination witches are just regular people with magic inside. I was delighted by the solution to the mystery. I have hope that a romance will blossom between Det. Gallagher and Tessa. Can't wait to read the next installment!

Goodsprings has a coven and they keep their doings under the radar.
Understandably as no one wants to be exposed to a witch hunt.
But then their waterwitch drowning!
Innocent people get accused so detective work is in order.
Good story line

I received an advanced copy of this book for an honest review. I really like this new series. it is what I call a light read. It's about friends and witches but so far nothing dark. Can't wait for the next one.

A Great Beginning to a New Series!

I really like the main characters, the fact that the witches have new non-witch friends who know that they're witches and they have to trust them. I can identify with the non-witches and wish to BE one of the witches.

Fun read, quick and easy, great pace

Well written, great storyline, wonderful characters are a delight to read. This story has all that and more. I loved that each elemental witch had her own personality, magical gifts, and separate personalities. Read and enjoy!
