True to form, she buys a rundown house in California wine country, to convert and sell for a huge profit. What she didn’t bank on was…

…meeting a handsome, sensitive watercolor artist who takes her breath away, and
…finding a body in the basement of her new property

The police are lackluster. She receives threatening notes. Rumors swirl about whether her new love interest is so kind and sensitive after all. Perhaps that’s all a front for his murderous intent.

What else can she do but investigate?  (Amazon)

Of Potions and Portents: Sister Witches of Raven Falls Cozy Mysteries Series, Book 1 (Sister Witches of Raven Falls Cozy Mystery Series) by [Halliwell, Nyx]Of Potions and Portents is the first book in the Sister Witches of Raven Falls Cozy Mystery Series. Join a set of magickal sisters as they solve paranormal mysteries that fans of Charmed, Hocus Pocus, and The Good Witch will love. ***Bonus recipes and craft instructions in every book!

I’ll be honest—I long for love and a “normal” social life, just like everyone else. Finding the time—not to mention the right guy—however, is a lost cause. My days are spent cooking up products for the Lotions, Potions, and Herbs line for Conjure, the metaphysical shop I run with my sisters, and my specialty blend—Sex Magick—is helping everyone else in Raven Falls find romance, while I’m working my broomstick off preparing for the upcoming Beltane celebration.

That is until Tristan McGregor, the sexy chief of police, threatens to shut down my kitchen and accuses me of murder. Two people have died, entangled in—ahem—a compromising position, and covered in Sex Magick.

On top of that, I discover an unsettling portent about the chief in his tea leaves, and when he steals a kiss after catching me at the crime scene, I try to convince myself it’s only because he’s under the influence of the Sex Magick enchantment.

But is he?

With my cursed mockingbird familiar, Hoax, my sassy sister witches, and a whole lot of peppermint tea, I have to solve the mystery before Tristan puts me behind bars. Even so, as the fires of Beltane nip at my heels, introducing the chief to the world of magick could send my chances at love up in smoke.

Eating Cupcakes in a Cemetery by [Siddall, Shelley Dawn]

Bev is short, loud and drunk most of the time. She woke up this morning next to a dead guy and does the most logical thing in the world; grabs some packages of dry noodles and drives for hours to surprise her sister. Her sober and shocked sister Belinda.
Together the sisters take sibling bickering to new heights as they try to determine what Bev did the preceding twenty-four hours. Bev would like to know what she did the previous month, as well as the current, but heah, at least she has a place to live.
And she has a place to be lonely. She goes to the cemetery and invents stories about the people buried there. She finds it oddly soothing. Bev also does her version of community service by stealing flowers from graves and re-planting them on random graves. It kind of freaks out the mourners who return the next day, but Bev is oblivious, because, you know, she’s probably drunk.
Her older sister Belinda has her own secret vices and needs to get the truth from Bev and her spotty memory. Like why are people shooting at Bev? Where did the money come from? Why is that FBI agent following her? Did Bev really kidnap the missing woman? And why does her twin sister have a gun and the dead man’s shoes in the trunk of her car?
Bev would like to know the answers to these questions too; but right now she could really use a drink.  (Amazon)
