Constance Campbell has made a few questionable decisions in the run-up to her fortieth birthday. So in a way, moving two thousand miles away from everything she’s ever known makes perfect sense.

Creel Creek, Virginia is the last place either of her ex-husbands would ever think to look for her. What better place to hide from her humiliations than a town too small to warrant a mention on a map?

Laid off, and recently divorced from husband number two, this former workaholic moves in with her estranged—and very strange—grandmother.

A grandmother who informs Constance that she comes from a long line of powerful witches. And on the day she hits the big 4-0, she’ll come into her powers.

It turns out that she’s not the only paranormal person in town. Under the sleepy surface, the small town is teeming with supernatural beings.

When Constance finds the town’s resident vampire dead, things go from surreal to scary. The local sheriff is convinced that a killer is lurking in the shadows, hunting anyone with supernatural abilities…including witches like her.

He’s not wrong.

Can Constance learn enough magic to save herself and Creel Creek from this unknown foe?

Pink Is The New Black: Paranormal Cozy Mystery (A Witch's Cove Mystery Book 1) by [Day, Vella]An inept witch. A talking pink iguana. A town trying to solve a lawman’s murder.

Hi, I’m Glinda Goodall–the Good Witch of the South–and I want to welcome you to Witch’s Cove, Florida, a delightful beach town where witches and humans reside in peace and harmony. Sounds perfect, right? Yeah, that’s what it says on the billboard, but here’s the real scoop.

My aunt, who runs the Tiki Hut Grill where I work, sees ghosts–or rather sees one of them–namely her dead husband. My mom, a funeral director, is addicted to all things that have to do with The Wizard of Oz. She even has a terrier named Toto. And then there’s my familiar, Iggy, who is a very disgruntled pink iguana who fancies himself a detective.

As for me, I’m a problem solver. My flaws are that I’m way too nosy for my own good, and I rarely say the right thing at the right time.

This week’s exciting news? Our not-so-beloved law enforcement officer was murdered, and my best friend’s brother was accused of the crime. I have to help find the real killer, right? How could I not?

Stop in to Witch’s Cove and grab a meal at the Tiki Hut Grill. You just might see me and my familiar in action.  (Amazon)

Editions Available:  Kindle, Paperback












A Pink Potion Gone Wrong: A Paranormal Cozy Mystery (A Witch's Cove Mystery Book 2) by [Day, Vella]An unlucky witch. A talking pink iguana. A frustrated ghost needing to know who killed him.

Welcome back to Witch’s Cove where the people–with the exception of a few random law breakers–are friendly and the sun always shines. If you want to talk to a dead relative, learn about your future, or need a spell created just for you, you’ve come to the right place.

Hi, I’m Glinda Goodall, and after fourteen years of hearing my iguana complain about how my spell turned his green skin pink, I finally have a chance to help him. The problem? I’m either the worst witch in Florida or the unluckiest. At the store where I buy my potions, the owner happened to be out of town. No worries. Why shouldn’t I trust the ancient substitute who is hard of hearing and doesn’t see well?

Long story short, she mixed in the wrong ingredient, and instead of turning Iggy back to green, I ended up seeing ghosts! Just my luck, the first semi-translucent figure I ran into was recently murdered and wants my help to figure out who did it. Never one to turn down a soul in need, I agree.

If you want to tag along, please do. You’ll find me at the Tiki Hut Grill most days serving breakfast and smiles. Oh, yeah. I found a talking cat too!  (Amazon)

Hi, I’m Glinda Goodall, the amateur sleuth who works at the Tiki Hut Grill. The sheriff works hard and deserves good help, but is the new deputy, Nash Solano, really who he says he is? The day after he arrives, chaos descends on the town–as in, two contestants in a regional dog show go missing shortly after a psychic sees a mysterious pink aura around them.

The sheriff has been good to me and my talking pink iguana. So naturally, I have to investigate–both the deputy and the missing competitors. As is always the case, things never go as planned.
