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....

A fun magical cozy

I have read my fair share of cozy mysteries with a "mystical" or paranormal twist, and this book did it right! Much better than most I've read. For one, the witchy paranormal stuff is not overdone. Secondly there is a lot of comedy mixed in and I found myself laughing a lot. The characters are all dynamic, and play off of each other. You have the meddling mothers, the aunt who is the queen of the house& the 3 cousins who are practically sisters. It's fun to watch them all interact. Also, the talking pet cat Adams was the BEST! His dry sassy attitude portrayed a cat perfectly. The magic portion was lighthearted and doesn't go dark and twisty like some other mysteries I've read. Overall it's an enjoyable read & I hope there is more in the series!
This book was gifted to me in exchange for my honest review.

Never heard of a slip witch before, but it sounds like pain to be one. As far as the butter carving contest, while I'm used to them here in northern climes, it seems more than odd for the mid-Atlantic states. Beyond that stuff, it was a hilarious romp of mystery and a dysfunctional family of witches. The publisher's blurb gives some clues without spoilers.
I was fortunate to get the audio edition, and Natalie Duke was great as the audio performer, with a pleasant voice and ease of characterization.
