Nobody knows the power of three like a Fairfield witch…

Youngest sister Grace Fairfield is the family rebel. Fun-loving, clever, and creative, Grace elevates rebelliousness to an art form, often resulting in chaos in Dark Hollow.
When Grace is assigned her first Hex Support case at a haunted amusement park, she’s thrilled to revisit her beloved stomping grounds from college. Unfortunately, the case involves an employee found dead on an expensive new rollercoaster that’s supposed to bring in enough revenue to avoid the park’s closure. Grace needs to act fast. If she can solve the case by Halloween, there’s still a chance the new rollercoaster can open in time to save the park from bankruptcy.
There is, however, one teensy complication in the form of Luke Brookstone, an old flame who worked at the park with her during college breaks. Even more distracting, he’s human and knows nothing about the magical world. Despite their chemistry, Grace knows that a relationship with a human would be met with disapproval by her witchy ancestors. Then again, when was Grace Fairfield ever one to fall in line?
The clock is ticking on the fate of the amusement park, as well as Grace’s reunion with Luke. Can she stop the killer in time to save her beloved park, or will it all go downhill from here?

Hunter’s Moon is the third and final book in the Hex Support Mystery series. (Amazon)

Everyone knows a Juniper Holiday Halloween party is to die for.

To get an invite is the most talked about topic in Crescent Cove. To experience the Holiday mansion in all its (supposedly) haunted glory is the stuff of legend. Of course, no one has actually seen a ghost in residence—but how could they when they’re having the time of their life?

As an eccentric with too much money and time on her hands, Juniper Holiday loves any excuse to throw a party, and with Halloween just around the corner, she’s in go mode. Everything is going splendidly—until her fake corpse prop ends up being a real body.

With her reputation hanging in the balance, can Juniper unmask the murderer before stuffy Detective Desmond Mallard cuffs the wrong perp, or will her next block party be in a prison block? (Amazon)
