The Witch is in the Details (Calamity Corners Witch Cozy Mystery Series Book 2) by [Barker, Constance]Murder by Voodoo Dolls?

Nann calls them poppets, but the rest of the town calls them voodoo dolls and they keep popping up around dead people.

The mill’s board has come together to address whether they will accept the town’s buy out program and reopen the mill. Lakeshore Properties continues to seethe, wanting the property for their own gain. And Magic seems to swirl around the entire town.

Zinna has worked hard to create a program to show the board members how reopening the plant via a worker buy out would benefit the company and the town. But a board member drops dead before revealing a decision and his notes mysteriously go missing.

Deputy Keith turns up at Nann’s bookstore asking questions regarding the voodoo dolls. Since Nann has an occult section in her bookstore and Aunt Nancy was either bonkers or a witch, maybe Nann has the goods on what’s going on. Of course, Nann must remain unassuming. No need to let the handsome deputy in on her secrets. That is, until Tink is framed when a slew of poppets are found in her garage.

When more people end up dead with voodoo dolls attached, Nann and Pokey, her pig familiar, must figure out if Aunt Nancy has any documents that may lead to a killer.

Sweet Tea and Secrets: A Tea and a Read Mystery (A Tea and Read Mystery) by [Joy Avon]Sleuth Callie Aspen wants to light up the Fourth of July tea party by solving a celebrity’s decades-old disappearance, but her digging results in more fireworks than she expects.

Last Christmas, Callie Aspen left her tour guide job and settled in Heart’s Harbor, Maine. Now, she helps out at Book Tea, her great aunt’s vintage tearoom, where each treat has a bookish clue. Though she’s excited to start her new life, Callie worries she may regret having burned her bridges behind her. Fortunately, she finds immediate distraction in the preparations for a spectacular Fourth of July tea party, which will recreate key moments from the town’s rich history.

Intrigued to learn that 1980s TV star Monica Walker was last seen in Heart’s Harbor before she vanished—allegedly to elope—Callie probes the townsfolk for information. She’s stunned when several locals share contradictory stories about the last day before Monica’s disappearance. Did she intend to leave her hit TV series? Was she being stalked by her ex? And why is the newspaper editor who investigated the story at the time so anxious about the cold case heating up?

When one of the talkative townspeople turns up dead, Callie aims to catch the killer. But it’s no picnic: Deputy Falk doesn’t want her meddling, and the locals suddenly know more about the past than they’d been at liberty to admit. If Callie and the Book Tea crew can’t crack the case, they’ll pay a very steep price in Joy Avon’s explosive second Tea and a Read mystery.  (Amazon)

Death and Doubloons (A Cumberpatch Cove Mystery Book 1) by [Robertson, Nola]


Rylee Spencer has never believed in anything paranormal. Not the reported hauntings of the less than notorious pirate Cumberpatch Cove is named after, and certainly not her grandmother’s predictions regarding the reincarnation of a great-great uncle on her father’s side of the family.

When she is zapped by a not so awesome birthday present and ends up being haunted by the ghost of a recently murdered Founders Day committee member, Rylee finds herself sleuthing for the supernatural—whether she wants to or not.

Of course, when she adds a muffin stealing mouse, the mystery of a museum coin heist, and a hot detective who thinks she’s a suspect, things get a whole lot worse.  (Amazon)

Pumpkin Pie Parting (MURDER IN THE MIX Book 15) by [Moore, Addison]A baker who sees the dead. One too many suitors.
And a killer. Living in Honey Hollow can be murder.

*A laugh out loud standalone cozy mystery by New York Times Bestseller Addison Moore* All books in the series can be read individually but are best enjoyed in order.

My name is Lottie Lemon, and I see dead people. Okay, so I rarely see dead people, mostly I see furry creatures of the dearly departed variety, aka dead pets, who have come back from the other side to warn me of their previous owner’s impending doom. 

The unthinkable has happened and I’m left to reel with a profound level of grief that I haven’t known since my father has died. Throw in a dizzy llama, a snow lodge and a murder, and you’ll have a recipe you never want to share at the Thanksgiving table. One thing is for sure, Noah and I will never be the same again.

Lottie Lemon has a brand new bakery to tend to, a budding romance with perhaps one too many suitors, and she has the supernatural ability to see dead pets—which are always harbingers for ominous things to come. Throw in the occasional ghost of the human variety, a string of murders, and her insatiable thirst for justice, and you’ll have more chaos than you know what to do with.

Living in the small town of Honey Hollow can be murder.  (Amazon)

What was the eccentric doctor really up to? And what is it that everyone keeps searching for?
