USA Today best-selling author Carolyn Ridder Aspenson returns to Holiday Hills where cozy mystery author Abby Odell writes books and casts spells with the help of her hilarious familiar, Cooper, the cat.
My name is Abby Odell, and I’m a witch. Some call me a newbie because I didn’t know I was one until my mother died and her spell that bound my powers died along with her.
My mother…always full of surprises.
Fifteen years ago, my mother planned, funded, and managed Holiday Hills’ first annual Mum Festival to raise money for the Holiday Hills Library. The wonderful volunteers working with her took charge when she passed a few years ago, but I made sure things went off without a hitch.
I didn’t expect that would include hunting down a murderer.
It won’t be easy. My significant other, the town sheriff, is MIA on a secret magical assignment, I’ve got to tread carefully. His replacement, the deputy chief, isn’t my biggest fan and will so whatever’s necessary to keep himself the boss in town.
But the entire town is on edge, and he wants to cancel the festival altogether. I can’t let that happen, not after my mother worked so hard for all those years. Besides, the library depends on the donation. And I know if I can find the killer, I can ease the fear growing in town.
It you like southern cozies with a paranormal element and a fun cat, you’ll love the witches of Holiday Hills.
