Don't Worry Be Witchy

The Witches of Holiday Hills Cozy Mystery Series


Welcome to Holiday Hills, the quirkiest small town you'll ever visit, where magical beings and mystery collide! It’s fall, my favorite season — then again, it’s probably every witch’s favorite season, and I was excited for the fantastic fall festival, but boy, did things take a supernatural turn.

Picture this: the Enchanted Bookstore and Café, the heart of our town, filled with cozy corners and magical tales. Just when I thought the only excitement would be sipping my pumpkin spice latte, in waltzes Patrick Murphy, the local psychic. Well, hold on to your broomsticks, because chaos erupted faster than you can say abracadabra.
But here's the real kicker: my trusty cat familiar, Cooper, had a psychic vision. Apparently, Patrick was destined for a one-way trip to the great beyond, and it was up to us to solve the case. Oh, the joys of being a magical sleuth with a talking feline sidekick!

Suddenly, nearly everyone becomes a possible suspect in Patrick's future murder — yeah, you heard that right. Patrick wasn’t dead yet, but his time here on earth was short. The divine collective, those supernatural bigwigs who pull the strings, set up a lineup of potential culprits before any actual crime occurred. I mean, seriously, this town runs on its own unique brand of logic.

Just when the festival kicks off, BAM! Patrick meets his untimely demise, courtesy of a good old-fashioned crystal ball to the noggin. His crystal ball. And guess what? My bestie, Stella, a human with no knack for finding herself in the middle of trouble, becomes a prime suspect. I am not pleased.

So now, in between sipping on endless cups of enchanted tea, I'm on a mission to unmask the real killer and keep my innocent friend out of the slammer. But wait, Cooper drops the bombshell that another murder is on the horizon. Seriously, can't a witch catch a break?

As if I wasn't busy enough writing fictional cozy mystery murders, now I have to play detective. But hey, who needs a social life when there's a murderer on the loose? Join me on this magical roller coaster ride as I juggle spells, suspects, and a sexy police chief who just happens to be my boyfriend. If I don't solve this mystery soon, my love life might be the next thing to disappear!
