The clock is ticking, and it’s almost time for Sadie to hear those three little words… it wasn’t me.
Hell hath no fury like a woman scorned? Try getting on the wrong side of a witch from Hallow Haven.
Witch Hunt is the fourteenth book in the Hallow Haven Witch Mysteries series.
Zora Wick’s magic lessons can sometimes be more dangerous than the murderers she captures, and as she learns more about magic’s dark history, she starts to find missing puzzle pieces from her own mysterious past.
Where did her mother vanish to all those years ago? Why does it feel like she’s closer than ever before? Who is the strange and enigmatic wizard behind the Sisters of the Shade, the dark coalition of witches intent on recruiting Zora?
Compass Cove brews up more trouble as well when another body turns up, and with a murderer on the loose Zora has no choice but to spring into action again and solve the mystery. The only problem is that the police are already convinced they’ve caught the killer, a close friend of Zora’s who would never hurt a fly.
That would be enough, but with one of her guardians away dealing with pack politics, Zora is left with his strange and unusual replacement, Niles. She might be slightly less paranoid if someone wasn’t messing with the magical boundaries keeping dark witches out of the town—there seems to be a traitor among Zora’s ranks, but can she figure it out and survive before the enemy takes everything from her?
Zora’s yet to fail, but with enemies lurking in every corner this might just be the end. Will she live long enough to unearth the shocking secret from her past?
Zora Wick is at the end of her tether. After a lifetime of bad luck, it seems she’s ended up at rock bottom, saddled with debt from her cheating ex, a dead-end job with no prospects and a studio apartment that’s not even fit for a dog. It all seems a little hopeless until there’s a knock at the door…
It turns out Zora has long-lost family on the other side of the country, hidden away in a little town on an unknown island. After uprooting herself Zora arrives in town to find that not only has she inherited an estranged family, she’s also the sole heir of the town’s local bakery—there’s one other thing too, apparently she’s a witch.
With a whole world of magic to learn and a small business to run it seems like Zora’s hands are more than full, but when some new evidence comes to light and casts doubts on the nature of her aunt’s death, Zora is quickly drawn into solving a murder mystery.
At her side is a sarcastic cat, headstrong cousins, and a whole host of townsfolk who are nothing short of interesting. Can Zora learn to bake, catch a killer and settle into her new life without ending up on the chopping block herself?
Zora Wick is in trouble. Again.
Life in Compass Cove felt like it was heading in the right direction, but events beyond her control force her to hit the road. It’s only been a month since she inherited her aunt’s bakery and business has already slowed down. Turns out being the new witch in town only brings in the crowds for so long, and an infestation of magical creatures in her apartment means she needs to shut everything down for three days.
When disaster strikes, improvise. Zora ropes her sister, Zelda, into helping out and they use the mobile-baking van to keep the business alive delivering sweet treats to the hungry people around the cove. Zelda’s apartment vibrates with every passing train, but at least Zora has a roof over her head.
Things go South when police pull Zora in for questioning over the death of a local businessman. Poison in his system makes Zora the prime suspect as her food was the last thing he ate, oh and they were caught arguing on camera.
To top it off news of Zora’s rare powers begin to grow amongst the witching community, and an unusual faction of dark witches have set their sights on recruiting Zora. Unable to sugar coat her opinion of the witches, Zora soon finds herself with a new set of enemies. Fortunately for her a dashing new love interest comes to the rescue.
Now Zora finds herself stuck between two men. The mysterious Hudson, the undercover agent who helped save her life a month ago, and the equally mystifying Blake, a man that seems to be hiding secrets of his own under the surface.
Can she solve a murder, keep her business from going under, and keep her wits about her now there are two tall, dark, and handsome men in her life?
After a troublesome few weeks in Compass Cove things are finally starting to look up for Zora Wick… or are they? With her replacement wand on the fritz, it’s almost impossible to perform magic properly, and it results in a disastrous first lesson at her magical night school.
Things are looking up in the bakery, however. When a famous musician walks in and puts down a stack of cash for a personal commission, the job almost seems too good to be true. He’s rude, arrogant, and Zora is tempted to throw the money back in his face, but with the cash she can take on another new employee.
Thrust into the middle of another murder mystery, Zora finds herself motivated by the fact that one of her closest friends is top of the suspect list. Clear a name, find the real killer, all in a day’s work.
Missing ingredients with the potential to produce a dangerous brew must be tracked down by order of a strange old witch, Nana Bucktooth, who is demanding Zora take charge. To make matters worse her two guardians have been stuck together with a joining curse, meaning the alpha male rivals can go no further than ten feet from one another. Will they finally learn to get on, or just get straight to killing each other?
If her wand was working properly, it might all be a little easier, but there’s only one creature in the town that can help get Zora a new wand, and they won’t lift a twiggy finger until Zora manages to solve a riddle that makes no sense.
With so many plates spinning around her it’s enough to make a witch scream. Can Zora get through another week in the calamitous Compass Cove before she becomes its latest victim? Bad luck like this is enough to make a witch wonder if she’s cursed, but sometimes that’s just how the cookie crumbles…
After a troublesome first month in Compass Cove Zora Wick is finally getting into a groove when the town goes into frenzy mode. There’s a Bread Fair on the calendar, and the locals take their dough very seriously. There’s a competition on the cards and prize money at stake, and apparently, it’s worth killing over.
If that wasn’t enough to handle a new bread shop has opened in town, a voodoo-inspired bakery operated by a mysterious witch who is dabbling in dark magic or just very good at pretending. Her shop is full of rotting food and disturbing symbols, but the humans of Compass Cove are lapping it up, and lines are forming around the block. Zora’s convinced there’s more there than meets the eye.
Zora also has to find a moment to wade through an awful morning of interviews for a bakery assistant, try and figure out why she saw her missing mother hiding in her bathroom mirror, and keep her boneheaded guardians from killing each other—if they don’t get killed by a troublesome magical pest first.
On top of that one of Zora’s friends has fallen into trouble with sirens, a dark and brooding group of creatures that inhabit Compass Cove lake. Can she give the merfolk what they want without losing her friend? There’s also a rather annoying wand insurance salesman that won’t stop following her around… Zora might be pushed to murder herself if he doesn’t let up.
Tensions and dough are rising, and it seems like everyone in town has something to prove. There’s no loafing around for Zora, she’ll have to go against the grain and catch a killer before her plans go a-rye.
The residents of Hallow Haven have gathered on the main island to enjoy the big day, but with feuding families in close proximity there are plenty disagreements to keep the peacekeeper busy. As if the recent vampire attack wasn’t taking up enough of her time…
Witches that indulge in revenge magic threaten to wreak havoc after they are summoned by someone bearing a grudge, but who wants vengeance badly enough that they’d contact this secret society? Who is the target? Why is there a VHS tape circulating that identifies Sadie as the prime suspect in a murder?
To clear her name she will have to do the impossible, get a group of people that hate each other to work together. Hunters threatening werewolves, vampires threatening witches, ghosts threatening each other, and vendettas a plenty. Sadie was hoping to spend the week planning her honeymoon, but now she’s just trying to make it to tomorrow.
At least her familiar, Fitz, isn’t making things worse… oh no, wait, of course he is.
Here Comes The Witch is the thirteenth book in the Hallow Haven Witch Mysteries series.
Chelsea Sponks is quickly settling into her new life on Pendle Island, and slowly getting used to being a witch. The annoying talking cat? Still getting used to that. The almost-empty bank account? Time to get a job. Fast.
When Chelsea uses the last of her inheritance to keep her friend Adam in employment, he rewards Chelsea and her cousin Lizzy with a free weekend stay at his family’s luxury ski resort, Chalet Roth, on the northern tip of the island.
The pair jump at the chance for a little relaxation. Things have been hectic on the island since Chelsea helped to solve her aunt’s murder, and she’s become something of a local celebrity. Getting away for a few days will be good.
Chelsea’s hopes of anonymity quickly crumble upon check-in. The chalet’s owner, Chester Roth, personally welcomes Chelsea to the chalet after recognizing her from the Pendle Island newspaper. The girls have barely sat down in the Chalet’s mountain-top bar when Chelsea trips over a body.
Now she’s trapped at the top of a mountain in a magical ski chalet, surrounded by a cast of wealthy and elite who all happen to have a connection to the deceased. Biggest of all is Chester, who becomes suspect number one when a key piece of evidence is tied to him.
With nowhere else to turn Chester hires Chelsea to clear his name. Now she has a murder to solve before the killer gets away, all while keeping her mischievous cousin and annoying cat in line. Proving Chester’s innocence won’t only keep him out of prison, it will give Chelsea a much-needed paycheck!
If that wasn’t enough there’s a vegetable thief on the prowl too, but murder and robbery aren’t the only puzzles afoot. Chalet Roth is a boiling pot of paranormal perplexity.
With their vacation plans up in the air it might be time to put down the hot chocolate and get down to some mystery solving, but with all that going on Chelsea can’t help focusing on the most important question of all…
Will she even have time to hit the slopes?
A Witch Before the storm is the second book in the Pendle Island Witches mystery series. It’s fast, funny, and may contain a sassy animal or two.
Now Chelsea’s boyfriend is under official magical investigation, and he’s took off running into the woods before she can sit down and explain anything. With a weekend of sulking ahead of her Chelsea finds her plans quickly turned on their head when Lizzy asks for her help at an art show.
The event? A world famous artist launching an international exhibit on Pendle Island. The attendees? Stuffy, rude, and seriously lacking manners. The showstopper art piece? A body in a box, and a new mystery, all for Chelsea to solve.
To top it all off she has a house guest that won’t stop stapling teabags to the walls, a sick cat with a penchant for drama, and a missing gardener, who seems to have made enemies with a local werewolf pack.
Things could only get worse if her mother called to announce a surprise visit…
Son of a Witch is the fourth book in the Pendle Island Witches mystery series. It’s light-hearted, clean, and may contain a sassy animal or two.
If that wasn’t enough Chelsea has to somehow entertain friends and family as they arrive at the hotel for the wedding, and of course her talkative familiar, Artemis, has snuck along for the ride too. With the big event coming the only ‘cold feet’ she’s concerned about are at the crime scene.
The local police however are delighted to find themselves in the midst of something exciting, and when the amiable sheriff brings a second mystery to Chelsea’s plate, she soon finds herself in over her head. A freight container full of exotic art has vanished into thin air, and the trail of clues left behind is simply baffling…
Maybe if she can figure it all out there will be time to ‘lei’ down and enjoy the Hawaiian sun before they have to fly back home… providing she gets out alive!
