IT DOES NOT NEED TO BE READ FIRST TO MAXIMIZE THE SERIES. ENJOY

How in the name of the goddess’s favorite sports bra am I going to do this Magical Librarian job? I have no idea what I’m doing. And the woman who’s supposed to be training me is…well, let’s just say she’s distracted and leave it at that. I guess I’ll bumble through. It’s become something of a trademark move for me.



My name is Naida Griffith and I’m a sorceress. I actually found that out not too long ago. I’ve lived with an undefined something burning in my belly for a while, feeling as if something wasn’t quite right under my skin. Then, on my eighteenth birthday I started getting headaches. Bad ones. And random stuff started following me around.

Recently I was approached by a group called the Société of Dire Magic to become Keeper of the Artifacts. A magical librarian. Given that magical artifacts have taken to following me around, I decided I might have an aptitude for the job. So I said yes.
But in the first few days, I’ve been flogged by flip flops, bludgeoned by gnomes, and discovered a corpse in a suitcase. Then there’s the woman who’s supposed to be training me. She’s…interesting.

Will I survive the training long enough to get the job as an artifact librarian? You might as well ask me if a caterpillar gets manis or pedis. Who knows? But I know one thing for sure. This gig is hard.

I’m going to do my best to succeed. Or die trying.  (Amazon)

Murder Ahoy!: A laugh out loud cozy mystery. (The Bella Tyson Mysteries Book 2) by [Fiona Leitch]Famous crime writer Bella Tyson is hired to co-host a Murder Mystery cruise, on a luxury liner sailing from Southampton to New York. She’s expecting an easy ride; fun and games, surrounded by amateur sleuths and fans of her books, all the while staying in a deluxe cabin and enjoying the spa and the amazing restaurants on board, culminating in a visit to one of her favourite cities in the world – the Big Apple.

She’s NOT expecting to be stuck on a boat in the middle of the Atlantic with her two least favourite people in the world, her hot but unfaithful bastard ex-husband Joel Quigley and fellow crime writer, bitch goddess and Twitter frenemy, Louise Meyers. And when real live dead bodies start turning up – as well as fake not-really-dead bodies – Bella’s dreams of being pampered on the high seas turn sour.

Accused of a murder she would have liked to commit but didn’t, and helped (or hindered) by a gang of unlikely detectives, can Bella find out who the real murderer is before the ship reaches its destination and New York’s finest drag her off?

A Wild Ghost Chase (A Reaper Witch Mystery Book 1) by [Elle Adams]Welcome to Hawkwood Hollow, where the dead outnumber the living.

Maura left her paranormal life behind years ago. Her ghost-hunting gift has given her nothing but trouble, and she’s decided she’s better off living outside of the magical world with her trusty sidekick, Mart.

But after she gets fired from her job at the morgue — turns out the living don’t generally appreciate it when the dead try to micromanage their own funerals — she receives a message from a teen blogger in need of her assistance in getting rid of a troublesome spirit. Broke enough to give ghost-hunting one last shot, she decides to take on the case.

The slight problem? Hawkwood Hollow contains more ghosts than living people, and they know something isn’t quite right about their visitor. Determined to leave as soon as the ghost is dealt with, Maura lands herself in hot water when she clashes with a local paranormal detective and finds herself suspecting the trouble-making spirit was murdered.

Maura’s not one to give up without a fight, but it’ll take all her skills to outwit the detective and send the ghost packing — preferably without anyone realising the source of her unique skills.

She’ll show them a ghost-hunting witch like her might be just what Hawkwood Hollow needs.  (Amazon)

Bound by Fate: Celestial Academy: The Witch Book 2 by [Tegan Maher]My name’s Shelby Flynn, witch, college student, and hot-tempered redhead, and I’m in way over my head.

I never set out to save the world, but it seems that’s the course Destiny set for me when an angel gifted me with magical powers beyond anything I could have ever imagined. Not that I mind being able to control the elements or blow things up with my mind, but a heads up about my future would have been fantastic. Instead, I fell through a magical doorway straight into the library of a secret academy ran by a fae and guarded by a three-headed hellhound and a talking, fire-breathing monkey named Stu. I realize how far out it sounds, but trust me – I couldn’t make it up if I tried.

Now, a coven of dark witches bent on destroying the source of white magic has stolen the Scepter of Life, and I only have six days to recover the remaining components or else they’ll succeed. I’m not one to walk away from a fight, but this time, it’s not about saving myself or even my family – the fate of the entire world lies squarely on my shoulders.

My task comes with a heavy price tag. Not only do I have to save the people I care about, I have to lie to them while I do it because secrecy is the Celestial Academy’s biggest advantage. My long-term boyfriend suspects I’m cheating, and my best friend is stuck in the middle, trying to keep my “real” life from falling apart while I’m off fighting demons, evil witches, and whatever else goes bump in the night.

Am I up for it? I’m not sure, but I have no choice. The elements are mine to control, and I have an ancient Fae and a powerful – and hot – wizard by my side. That will have to be enough.

After all, I’m a Flynn witch, and nobody messes with me or mine.  (Amazon)
