It's that simple.






I'm also joining in Book Beginnings on Friday. It's hosted by Rose City Reader


This is a novella I have on my Kindle.  It looks really good for a weekend read and perfect for this time of year.





First Chapter

"I think blondie bumped off the old hag," Poe Landry muttered between bites of the muffin that her neighbor, Mischa, had brought over to her.  It was apple, still warm, and completely delicious in that just-out-of-the-oven way.

From 56% on my Kindle...

"How?  People generally don't keep lists of their valuables at their bank," Mischa protested.  

Synopsis from Goodreads:

Meet the witches of Country Acres Coven, Kensleigh Landing East, where the suburbs and the supernatural just happen to overlap.

Mischa, Ellie, and Poe are more than just best friends and neighbors—they also form a coven of witches living right in the middle of a sleepy suburban town in North Carolina. They make the perfect neighborhood watch and always have an eye on what’s going on in their town. So, when a blonde bombshell with a mysterious past moves in, they’re understandably curious. Especially when, hours later, another neighbor drops dead.

Did their new neighbor murder their old one? Or did someone else want grumpy Edith Whitlow dead?

It’s up to the witches to solve Edith’s murder, but with PTA meetings, full-time jobs, and two talking cats underfoot, can they catch the culprit in time for their annual Christmas party?

If you're a fan of funny witches and (sometimes) desperate housewives, you'll love this!

This is a short, fun read that introduces the characters in the Suburban Witch series. This short origin story originally appeared in the anthology, 'Spells and Jinglebells'.

  1. Sounds good. This is the perfect time of the year for reading novellas since reading time can be hard to find. I'm spotlighting The Shadowy Horses by Susanna Kearsley which was a read/listen combo for me. Happy reading!
