Review: Magick and Mayhem by Sharon Pape

Magick and Mayhem was the fantastic first book in a new paranormal cozy mystery. It features Kailyn Wilde as a witch in a small town who is running her family’s magic shop, Abracadabra, after the sudden deaths of her mother and grandmother. When she and her psychic aunt Tilly head over to the local lawyers office to finalize some papers they are surprised to find he’d been murdered and from there the plot unfolds.

Review: The Breakdown

The Breakdown is a twisting psychological thriller that will keep you on your toes and guessing until the very last page. Even the tagline “If you can’t trust yourself, who can you trust?” draws you in straight away. The story follows Cass as she attempts to deal with the death of a woman she feels she may have been able to help.

Review: Kale to the Queen

Kale to the Queen, by Nell Hampton, is the debut to a new cozy mystery series that follows Chef Carrie Ann Cole along as she begins her new job as a chef as Kensington Palace. She starts off at the job well and has just begun to settle into her rather grueling new position when she stumbles across a dead body.
