Publisher's Summary

Caitlyn Le Fey is enjoying her first autumn in England, nut picking in the forest, creating delicious treats in her grandmother’s enchanted chocolate shop, and dreaming of cozy evenings with the handsome Lord James Fitzroy. But the peace is shattered when a mysterious woman claiming to be a witch arrives in the village. Some love her, others fear her...and one person is driven to murder.

Soon Caitlyn finds herself drawn into a mystery with links to ancient witch trials, and - with the help of her toothless vampire uncle and a few magical spells of her own - she sets out to do some sleuthing. But strange things are happening, and Caitlyn is worried and confused. Why isn’t her kitten, Nibs, growing any larger? What does the new guest at Huntingdon Manor really want? And what is the jewel that seems to be exerting a sinister influence over her cousin Pomona?

There are dark forces gathering in the village of Tillyhenge, and Caitlyn is about to discover that the savage tradition of witch hunting is still very much alive....

A story of wit and imagination

I have listened to the entire series of the Bewitched by Chocolate books, and this one is one of my favorites. Although it is primarily a cozy mystery with humor and whimsical magic, there was a timeliness to the plot line that appealed to my sense of justice. It dealt with the dynamics of bigotry and fear of what is perceived as "other" and the idea of witch hunters as people who spread superstition and provoke persecution. In our current time, where we see fear and hatred on the rise, it's a reminder of an earlier brand of bigotry and ignorance.

Double, Double, Toil and Truffle has some funny scenes that I look forward to in a book by H.Y. Hanna. There are also a couple of subplot story lines that promise to become more evolved and interesting in books to come. Together the characters, plot and humor work for me to make for a very enjoyable read.

Magical combination

I’m enjoying all these HY Hanna/Pearl Hewitt productions. The stories are fun and light and also well written and Pearl captures the spirit and tone perfectly. They are like chocolate for the listening.

And both author and narrator “get” animals. I love the side plot of Bran and Nibs.

Earns 5+/5 Hazelnut Truffles...Deliciously Engaging!

The sixth book in H.Y. Hanna’s Bewitched by Chocolate series is a delicious gem with a compelling mystery, rich characters, old-fashion witch hunting, and with the audiobook, the talented narration by voice artist Pearl Hewitt. Caitlyn’s magical family has dealt with resistance by local villagers, but reactions are different to the new visitor Minerva Chattox, a self-proclaimed witch offering “custom spells and charms” and who professes to be descended from the Pendle witches (fascinating history). Aunt Bertha knows she is not a witch, but villagers interest turns deadly when one of her theatrical incantations causes a protestor to be struck by lightening. However, later Minerva is found dead in a manner reminiscent of witch trial torture. Enter Pearl Hewitt who takes H.Y. Hanna’s well-written narrative, delightful humor, and engaging banter, and using her artistry and various British dialects, illustrates well the tone, emotions, varied personalities, gender, and age. Excellent series with compelling witch and vampire lore, mystery behind Caitlyn’s birth, budding romance, and lots of chocolate!

PARANORMAL WITH A TWIST

I DO ENJOY THIS SERIES WITH IT'S MODERN LORD OF THE MANOR, TRANSPLANTED BRITISH AMERICAN PROTAGONIST, CRANKY AND MYSTERIOUS WIDOW MAGS, AND ALL THE OTHERS. AMIDST THE MURDER AND MAYHEM, THIS BOOK BRINGS US CLOSER TO RESOLUTIONS OF RELATIONSHIPS, FAMILIAL AND OTHERWISE, NOT TO MENTION A GROWING CONCERN OVER A MYSTERIOUS NECKLACE. LOTS OF THINGS GOING ON IN THIS ONE. DO NOT MISS IT!

Love love love

People in the village are getting ugly (with their actions, not their actual appearance). I wish they'd all just turn into frogs! Or toads. Even better! Sometimes I just wanna smack Evie for not doing the sensible thing. But I feel so bad for her. The teenage girls in the town are horrible to her! Rotten little turds! Pomona is even stranger in this book. I don't like her character much right now, but I'm sure someone's bewitching her or something and making her act the way she's acting.

Brilliant

This is one of my favourite series by H.Y. Hanna.
It has the perfect blend of mystery, romance, and humour. I love the comedy elements that Uncle Viktor brings to the story. He always makes me laugh.
Each book has its own mystery but there are also threads of subplots that carry over to the next book and it is these mysteries that really have me enthralled with the series and keeps me coming back for more. Caitlyn is still trying to find her biological parents. There is a mysterious, ominous presence and the drama with her cousin Pomona continues. Following Caitlin and James' cute relationship also has me entertained.
I'm hoping there will be plenty more books in this series.

I voluntarily reviewed an advance reading audio copy.

interesting and Delightful.

This review is for all six books. I have listened to them all and can't wait for book 7. I absolutely loved the antics of Nibs the little black cat. Pearl Hewitt does an excellent job of narrating given that there are so many characters to deal with. I would like to see Katlin and James romance move along a bit faster though. Poor Evie, doing spells that always go wrong. I got a giggle out of the one where she changes the girls into chooks, and Victor, always loosing his fangs, how embarrassing, but I enjoyed some of the predicaments he got himself into. overall, for all six books; 10 out of 10.
