This book, and possibly the series follows The Sweet Tea Witches series, book 16 by Amy Boyles. I haven't finished this book as I keep getting drawn back to other characters as this book(series) brings together characters from a couple of different series' by Amy Boyles.

In this first book, Axel and Pepper have just gotten married and instead of a honeymoon they are searching for pieces of the heart fire from Magnolia Cove. They end up in Haunted Hollow, which is the home of Blissful and Roan, of

This is actually a crossover series where Pepper and Axel travel to Haunted Hollow to try to find a part of the town heart that was torn into four pieces. It seems some guy in Haunted Hollow has suddenly developed the ability to turn things into gold. The second main problem is that an evil guy is also after the heart pieces so it's a question of who gets to it first and can the problems the Midas-touch guy created be solved.

The problem I had with this book is that I am not familiar with the Hau

Innovative fun!

This is a good co-mingling of two enjoyable series. Pepper, Axel, and Grandma Betty from the "Sweet Tea Witches" have chased part of the heart fire to Haunted Hollow, Alabama. Luckily for them, this is where Blissful, Roan, and the gang from "Southern Ghost Wranglers" can be found. I liked that the teams worked together to solve the catastrophes in both series, and the multiple viewpoints setup works (for this special crossover series ONLY!). Betty is an even bigger pain than usua

Too many references to other stories

For the first time I’m writing a 1 star reference. In order to follow most of this story it’s obvious that I needed to have read the books in another series that came before this series. I don’t mind the fact that there were books written by this author before but to base and constantly refer back is confusing and takes away from the current story. I just didn’t enjoy not knowing whatever was being referred to. Readers need to be warned that to totally follow

Exciting read!

Axel and Pepper are married! All should be right with their world. But, of course, it’s never a dull moment and when the Heartstone is broken in pieces the town of Magnolia Cove is losing its magic. Can Pepper, Alex and Betty find the pieces and bring the magic back? Well, with the held of Blissful, Roan and the Ghost Wranglers it should be a piece of...shortbread!

Great beginning to this storyline.

I loved it!

What Amy has done here is brilliant! There are crossovers in a lot of series but this is the mother of all crossovers and it’s a genius idea. Pepper and Axel star in a new series that connects all of the author’s other series together. I love each one and this was an excellent book with some of my favorite characters.

Witches, ghosts, vampires and more.

Another great series by Amy Boyles. Pepper, Axel, and Betty get help from Blissful, Roan and the gang on their quest to save Magnolia Cove.
I love that this new series will be visiting old friends.

Great read! One of the best things about this book is that it's the beginning of a new series, but there is already a whole series of books about a couple of the "guest star" characters.

Laugh out Loud

As a combo of a couple other of her series, Amy Boyles once again bring both suspense and humor. If you enjoy a good mystery and lime to laugh. Her books are perfect.
The writing in this book is worthy of a higher rating, but there were some issues that made me rate it lower. First, apparently this is a cross-over, but that isn't clear, and it makes the story confusing, because readers unfamiliar with the other series don't have the information needed to make certain elements make sense. A little prologue or such would be helpful.

Also, the mystery is not fully resolved. In order to know if the characters' quest is successful (and which characters will continu
