Publisher's Summary

Just when it seems like Meg Walton can get back to business as usual running the family's donut shop, another murder occurs in the once-sleepy town of Enchanted Bay.

This time, a double-crossing carpet salesman turned theater owner is the victim. As a witch, Meg has unique abilities to investigate the case, but she'd prefer to leave the sleuthing to the cops.

All that changes when the police suspect one of Meg's friends as the possible killer. Meg knows she can't stand idly by. In order to prove her friend's innocence, she decides to find the real killer herself.

Can she crack this case and save her friend without the town finding out her secret that she's a witch?

FUN & QUICK PARANORMAL WITCH COZY

AX TO GRIND is the second book in the Witches of Enchanted Bay series. These are best read in the order of release.

This is a fun and quick read/ listen that is perfect for road-trips with the family. You don’t have to worry about foul language or over-taxing who-dunnits… just fun clues from a non-fat donut (sic) making witch and her detective boyfriend.

Could I please have the recipe – or secret power – to make the no-calorie treats?

I love reading everything from Dr. Seuss to Mr. Grey. I enjoy books like this when I want to just relax. Suspend reality – after all how is one play written decades ago going to support the playwright, a theater, and all of the actors for all of those years in a small town – and enjoy this cozy witch mystery.

Narration: Lainie Pahos is a sweet narrator. Her name on a book is a reason to pick it up.

Note: While I received this book as a gifted audiobook copy, my opinions are my own and are given freely.

Good story but very similar to book 1

I really like the Witches of Enchanted Bay, but Ax to Grind was a little too similar to the first book. It repeated several bits so that I had to check to make sure that I as reading book 2.

Who dunnit?

Sort of a run of the mill mystery, mainly made-up of questioning suspects. Narrator is pretty good.

Then a few hours later her mother comes in the work telling her about all the police cars in front of the home of the man who bought the playhouse and cancelled the play.

Lainie Pahos is a narrator that will draw you into the story with her vocalization of each character.
Fantastic audio and story.
