He doesn’t think life could get any better when his wife, Nina, tells him he’s going to be the unexpected father of twin girls.

When his newborns are stolen, he turns to Slade Kelly, an unorthodox private investigator, to find them. It’s a race against time to find the girls before they’re sold to the highest bidder.

Glamour Ghoul: A Lady of the Lake School for Girls Cozy Mystery (The Vega Bloodmire Wicked Witch Mystery Series Book 11) by [Sarina Dorie]

Wicked witches. Murder. Mystery.

When a serial killer of werewolves is on the loose, who are you going to call?

Not only is Vega Bloodmire a teacher at the most prestigious magical boarding school for witches, and a powerful witch, but she also has a curse for getting herself into situations where she has to solve mysteries—even when she should be minding her own business. She thrives when she is able to use skilled and powerful magic, crush her enemies, and destroy those who would harm her students and those she loves.

She is less comfortable being a good role model, consoling with hugs and kind words, and being “nice.” As is often the case, Vega has found herself in a most uncomfortable situation, putting her skills to the test. She is now guardian to a fifteen-year-old girl with cancer. When her charge insists on taking care of an injured puppy, it is only one of many problems Vega faces at the close of a school year.

When a connection is made between a victim who died after being shot with silver bullets and the puppy’s wound, Vega suspects someone is on the hunt for werewolves and shifters. As a shifter herself, Vega understands the stigma of being unable to control magical transformations and the way society shuns those who are different.

In order to pay for her charge’s medical treatment, Vega decides to hunt a poacher and acquire all his silver bullets. If she happens to do something “nice” for the betterment of Witchkin society and gets rid of a werewolf serial killer in the process, she isn’t opposed to the idea—so long as no one tries to thank her for being selfless and good.

Can Vega discover who has been killing werewolves before another victim dies?

This book starts with Vega Bloodmire’s life before working at Womby’s School for Wayward Witches when she was a new and inexperienced teacher at Lady of the Lake School for Girls. GLAMOUR GHOUL is the 11th book in the series of mysteries taking place at a magical academy, but these whodunnits are fine to be read in any order.

Clean, cozy, no sex or swearing, PG 13—perfectly fine for teens or grandmas who like mysteries with magic. (Amazon)

Murder. It’s a doggone shame.

When Amy moved back home and opened a cute little pet salon, she never expected her work to be interrupted by death. It’s especially odd when the victim is a nurse…

Not surprisingly, it’s not long before Amy uncovers evidence that suggests the death of the nurse was murder — and she and Granny set off to catch the killer before there’s another murder in town. 

But this killer was smart, they covered their tracks, and Amy suspects the key evidence is in a briefcase that’s under lock and key. 

Is she right?

The closer Amy and Granny get to catching the killer, the more danger they find, and the angrier the local cops become.

With threats mounting, and more secrets than the ladies can count, Amy knows this case has to be solved before another victim turns up.
