Hi, all! I’m back…er, I mean, we’re back and boy do we have a tale to tell!
Now that Win is up and about, he’s been a very busy bee. He’s jumped in with both feet, getting involved in our community and living his best life now that he’s unencumbered by his spy past. He even joined the Ebenezer Falls garden club and made all the female member’s toes curl with his British charm.
On a flower scouting trip for the garden club’s annual spring planting in the town square, while Win is ogling lavender bushes and pansies, I fall head first into a pile of soil where a body’s buried.
Not just any body either. It’s the body of the husband of a close acquaintance of mine—a close acquaintance who just happens to own the nursery and the pile of dirt I fall into head first.
When he begs me to investigate, there’s no way I’m going to turn him down, but there are obstacles to overcome.
For instance, the love of my life. My International Man of Mystery, who keeps stepping on my investigative toes. It’s proving to be an adjustment solving a mystery with us working in the same space. Add in Dana, who’s gone ‘round the bend, my sudden and unexplained investigative (not to mention ridiculous) possessiveness and everything’s all topsy-turvy.
But there’s a vicious killer on the loose and as we unravel whodunnit, I’m hoping our relationship doesn’t unravel, too…
Witch Perfect by Dakota Cassidy begins right where Witch it Real Good Ends and hooked me as the gang sat around the kitchen table with Officer Dana. Surprises, murder and mischief await you…
A trip to the landscapers ends up to the discovery of a body and a friend asking for help in solving the murder of their spouse. But Stevie is struggling with dare I say jealousy? It seems now that Win is corporeal, Stevie is having a tough time dealing with her crime solving partner. Win is forming friendships and becoming active in their community.
I went back and forth between understanding Stevie and wanting to tell her to grow up and be happy. Drama aside, it was delightful to see Win and Stevie working side by side on a murder case. I just wish we saw a little more development in their romantic development.
The thread with Dana and the confession was a good one. Poor Dana.
An intriguing case, humor and friends added to the tale. While each audiobook deals with a fresh case, overall ARC development and character relationships demand that this series be read in the order of its release.
Spend time with Stevie and Win if you looking for a light, humorous paranormal cozy. Hollie Jackson is delightful as the narrator. She has created unique voices for each character, and her pacing and tone enhance the overall story.
Reading this book contributed to these challenges:

I’m glad to see this series is going strong so far into it. I think I have the first one as a Kindle freebie. Robin is a fan of this author.
Glad her personal crisis didn’t ruin it utterly and she figured it out. Dana’s situation sounds tough. Another series to start eventually.
I see the green eyed monster has taken charge of Stevie. This series sounds good. I am thinking of adding this to my reading list. Great review.

What a lovely review you have of this one here. I have been itching to read this author though. I really love those connecting character relationships that are built like this here.
