There's a new witch in town...
Jealousy is rearing its ugly head in Beechwood Harbor as Holly contends with her new roommate, and popular paranormal soap star, Evangeline Loren. Especially when the new witch in town turns her flirtatious smile towards Adam St. James, Holly's newly minted boyfriend.

But before she can wrench Adam from Evangeline's clutches, she has an amnesiac ghost begging for her help and finds herself smack dab in the middle of another murder investigation in the small town.

Holly has to track down the murderer and save her relationship ... all without landing herself in a witch’s duel.

Are you looking for a cozy mystery series with real paranormal elements like witches, ghosts, shifters, magic, and more? Then you need to snuggle up with the Beechwood Harbor Magic Mystery series.

Twice the Witch by Danielle Garrett is the second novel in the Beechwood Harbor Magic Mystery series. Guys, this cozy mystery has so many elements I love.

  • An old manor owned by a ghost and home to supernatural boarders.
  • A small seaside town.
  • Protagonist and witch, Holly, works full-time in a coffee shop. Bonus they serve pastries!
  • A local private investigator named Nick, works the cases, alongside the police. And of course, Holly meddles. Thanks to things she knows that a human PI can’t.
  • Amanda Ronconi has fast become a favorite narrator. I enjoy the voices she creates and her pacing. She takes the story to the next level while keeping me engaged.  Her voices are animated giving depth to these characters.
  • Snark, friendship, and MURDER!

In Twice the Witch, one of the barista girl’s cousin goes missing. Thanks to Holly, Nick the PI is hired to investigate. A simple walk on the beach soon has Holly involved. We get to know Holly more, and finally get her backstory as to why she was banished from her coven. A new boarder, Evangeline, a lovely actress, and witch. She causes some tension with Holly’s budding relationship with a certain, laid back and sexy shifter. Not to mention the tension caused by her spending time with Nick, the local investigator.

Garrett offered up an interesting murder mystery that threw our heroine some unexpected twists. I enjoyed time spent in Beechwood Manor, hearing about spells and enjoyed the local happens. While each book has its own case, I recommend reading these in order of release because of the characters and their relationships.

At just under six hours, Twice the Witch is perfect on audio and as I said, Ronconi really brings the story to life. I cannot wait to dive into, Witch Slapped, the next audio in this series.

Paranormal cozy, Twice the Witch written by Danielle Garrett and narrated by Amanda Ronconi offered up a great murder mystery with humor, twists and snark. #audiobook Click To Tweet

    I haven’t listened to this one yet, but I’m excited to get to it. Maybe, I’ll start this when I finish my current listen.

    First off, I love the name Twice the Witch – Love it and I haven’t read a good cozy mystery in a long time. Since I have audible I should pick this one up. Sounds like a good book. Great review!

    You know I love a mix of mystery and supernatural! I’ve got a copy of The Broken Girls by Simone St. James that I’m eager to read soon.

  5. Heidi

    It’s been awhile since I read a cozy with a paranormal twist. I love a good cozy and this one seems like one I would enjoy I am going to see if I can get it at my library. Thanks for the recommendation.

    I’m going to have to add this one to by list to check out, it sounds awesome. Thank you for introducing me to this title!

    Looking at this cover, my mind immediately thinks, “Oh, Halloween…” I’m not usually a fan of Halloween-esque books, but I do love a good paranormal mystery. This actually sounds like something I would enjoy, and I love a good audiobook! Thank you for reviewing this! I wouldn’t have known about it otherwise. (I also love that the next book is called “Witch Slapped,” hahaha.

      The cover is cute, but the story takes place in a seaside setting. This book was set in early summer.

      • Lindsi

        I think the cover is adorable, but it makes me think of Halloween. I love that it’s a seaside setting in summer!

    It has all the ingredients I look for in a fun cozy series, Kim! I’m going to add this to my list. I think I’ll go with audible too. I like it now and then when they aren’t 12 or more hours long.

  9. Angela @ Angel's Guilty Pleasures

    Wonderful review. I really enjoyed book one and picked up book 2 when it was on sale. I need to read it. The audio sounds lovely. The prequel to the series tells us about Holly and why she ended up banished. It’s the event. It was offered up in her newsletter a while back, don’t think it’s published…
