Enhance your purchase
To save her wedding date, Selena must prove her fiancé’s innocence…and find a murderer.
Wedding bells are ringing soon for Selena Marx and Calvin Standingbear, so with her plate already overloaded, a reality-show film crew tumbling into Globe, Arizona, barely registers on her radar, psychic or otherwise. The only thing Selena wishes she had is an extra hand to keep the show’s aggressively flirty host, Dillon James, at arm’s length.
Her bestie, Josie Woodrow, is over the full moon, sure that Monster Hunt will put sleepy little Globe on the map. But the show’s search for the legendary Mogollon Monster — this region’s version of Bigfoot — isn’t what makes headlines.
No, it’s the blood-spattered crime scene, starring Dillon James’ very dead body. The fact that something with huge claws ripped out his throat. And a strand of flimsy evidence that points a DNA finger squarely at Calvin.
Selena leaves no Tarot card unturned in her desperation to save her fiancé — and her wedding date. But all her cards and her pendulum can tell her is that the real murderer is close enough to breathe down her neck…and this monster won’t hesitate to kill again.

Book 6 Hedgewitch for Hire
Amid the activities of a Southern California, a filming crew recently based in Globe, is shooting scenes for made for TV production, Arizona’s answer to Big Foot. Selena is well into her “let’s get married mode,” although very concerned about her relationship with her future in-laws. Then the show’s host, Dillan, makes a rude about Calvin and then has the audacity to put his arm on Selena. Thus we have the foundation for this typically enchanting Pope witchy romance.
Dillion get murdered by what looks like the Mogollon Monster. Unfortunately, the gruesome crime scene just happens to contain a speck of evidence tat points directly to Calvin. Of course, Selena has to save her handsome fiancé and again become involved in solving a murder mystery. On top of that she still has not figured out how to remove the curse that made Archie feline!
A fast moving and fun read Pope ties up some of the loose ends, namely the issue of Calvin’s parents, as their response to their future daughter-in-law’s witchy involvement. You will love this second to the last installment of the Hedgewitch For Hire Series and likely find yourself as impatient as I am to read “Uninvited Ghosts” and the long awaited nuptials of our pretty witch to the glorious hunk of a man who also happens to be the Native American cop from the nearby tribe. We know all the new clothes Archie purchase have arrived, but will he be a man in time to wear them to Selena’s wedding? This book is definitely a cliff hanger, but typical of Pope she makes sure you are really ready for the next book.
What an adventure, I have to say that I really enjoyed Archie in this one. I mean who knew that he could be sensitive? Anyway, it was a nice read, with a quick pace to it. For sure it felt like I read through it faster than some other books. I think this is my favorite of the books in the series so far, but we'll have to see how I feel after the series is complete. I did receive an ARC to review but this in no way has any affect on my thoughts or opinions.
Have you heard of The Mogollon Monster, also known as the Arizona Bigfoot? That's the mystery in this book, the monster that the reality show "Monster Hunters" is investigating. The true monster is more mundane but more deadly as Selena works to exonerate her fiance from a frame-up.
