Publisher's Summary

The International Butter Festival has come to town! When Harlow Torrent, part-time journalist and full-time Slip witch stumbles upon a dead body, frozen and drained of blood, she's pulled into a murder mystery.
Someone has murdered one of the Butter Festival competitors. Was it Zero Bend, punk sculptor extraordinaire with a history of violence? Perhaps Fusion Swan, a sleazy agent playing the publicity game when his clients meet their untimely end?
Between trying to run her struggling online newspaper, dealing with her highly caffeinated cousins Molly and Luce, fending off three meddling witch mothers who will do anything to get their daughters married off (including drugging food with magic potions) and great Aunt Cass who appears to be running an underground laboratory of some kind, Harlow barely has time to breathe, let alone solve a murder.
Romance certainly isn't on the cards either but the hot scruffy guy new to town seems to have other ideas....

this was a cute, fun story. It reminds me of a cross between Molly Harpers Halfmoon Hollow stories and Kristen Painters Nocturne Falls. i look forward to reading more of these. I receive this audio book free for an honest review.

Fun story

I enjoyed listening to this audiobook. The story drew me in and kept me interested. This a new series with some suspense, mystery, a bit of romance, and some humor.

The narrator did a good job bringing the story to life.

The conclusion was unexpected and some things were left hanging but they did solve the mystery.

**This audiobook was provided free of charge in exchange for my honest unbiased opinion**

A fun mystery

Any additional comments?

I loved the humour in this novel. the magical element to the story was the catalyst to many funny incidents and gave the story an overall light feel.
The murder mystery itself was very interesting and I liked the supernatural aspect to the murder. Perfect for October reading!
This was my first murder mystery involving a family of witches and I found the whole story very entertaining. I would certainly be happy to read the rest of the series and find out what other zany adventures they get up to.

I received a copy in return for my honest review.

Not for me

What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

I thought the story lingered too long on boring details and didn't get to the good paranormal stuff quick enough. For example, the long description/explanation of Harlot Bay was dull to listen to, I stopped paying attention to it. The story seemed more catered towards a young audience (early teens), the reaction to a good looking guy from the female characters was overdone and irritating - they sounded like they were thirteen. Otherwise, it was an okay story, I loved Adams the talking cat and his preference for sleeping in a pizza oven. The narrator did a great job, I liked listening to her but she couldn't make the tedious descriptions sound interesting either.

What will your next listen be?

Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix narrated by Stephen Fry
