Publisher's summary

Runway rivalries. An arcane arachnid. Can she unravel this designer death?

Pet psychic Jolene needs some excitement to keep her mind off her downward spiral. So, when her dreamy police crush asks her to interview a massive eight-legged murder witness, the former shifter signs on, despite the risks. With an enchanted sweatshop owner and a testy trendsetter both dying from the same venom, Jolene fears their crafty assassin has spun a complex web.

Following the officer and his lie-sniffing German shepherd into a labyrinth of clues, she cuts through a suspect list full of jealous rivals and bitter enemies. But when their investigation shines a light on the frayed corners of the black market, Jolene worries she’s pulled the wrong thread.

Can she stitch up the case before she gets sewn into a body bag?

Friday Night Bites is the second book in the charming Magic Market paranormal cozy mystery series. If you like clever wit, supernatural settings, and lighthearted whodunits, then you’ll love Erin Johnson’s enchanting tale.

A peak behind sweatshops and creative espianage

I love this series. Erin weaves a very compelling story as a fallen from grace lawyer now in a magical slum becomes a police consultant. It has the best parts of murder mysteries mixed with the best parts of a magical world. As a recent law grad, I also love the legal references. This mystery has a good hook and keeps you guessing along the way as interesting people are introduced. The story even gets around the gritty downside of audio mysteries by having its own local sets of curses so that profanity isn't off putting or even horrible. There is no traditional profanity and even my kids love to hear the story about Joleen :)

This captures the depth of sweatshops and indentured servitude and expands it into a gripping mystery.

What a Wicked Web We Weave

Favorite pet psychic Jolene is called in on a case involving death by spider venom in the fashion industry. But was the victim actually bitten by her familiar, a spider? Trust Jolene to crack the case in this web of deceit! A fun, breezy listen, just perfect for a summer afternoon!

downward spiral

I like Ms. Johnson’s descriptive writing style. You feel as if you are there. The narrator only enhances the story.

If you’ve read any of the Spells & Caramel Series, we return to a seedier side of Bijou Mer. More of the underbelly of the island, the Darkmoon Market District is where the poor live and criminals conduct business on a day-to-day basis. Also, it is the base of operations for the head mob shifter. Shifter’s still are feared in this community.

There are a few deaths, descriptions of the have and have nots, and what drove the murders. Without giving too much away, Jolene and crew investigate the death of a sweatshop owner and the death of a designer. Are they related? Possibly.

Fantastic

Another fantastic book by Erin Johnson. This time Jolene has to help Peter with another murder. A sweatshop owner is poisoned. It appear by her on familiar, a spider. Jolene has to speak to the spider to find out what happened. It turns out is was a murder by someone else and not the familiar. Because the spider is dying because the witch died. This series is full of suspense and humor. This book kept me laughing all the way through. I look forward to the next book in this series. I received this book free of charge in exchange for an honest review.

The narrator, Hannah Somerville, does a fantastic job.

Another hit

Another great book in the Magic Market Mysteries. This time Peter asks Jolene to interview a giant spider that is a familiar to a witch. A witch that's dead from spider venom. It looks like an open and shut case at first but the spider reminds Jolene, if her witch dies, so does the spider. These books are great fun and Jolene and Peter are getting a little closer. Too bad she holding back some pretty big secrets. Off to the next book in this series. Hearing the voices the narrator makes for animals and insects is hilarious too.

Lots of Fun

I received this book for free. I am voluntarily posting this review and any opinion expressed herein is my own.

This is the second book in the Magic Market Series [which is set in the same world as the Spells and Caramels series but no overlapping characters - yet]. It is a standalone book with no cliffhanger ending.

This series is fun, light-hearted, and humorous. The main character, Jolene, has no magical powers in a magical world and spends a lot of time trying to disguise her lack of abilities to humorous effect. I love the interactions between Jolene, possible love interest Peter and his dog Daisy - some of the zingers between Daisy and Jolene are just magical.

The narrator, Hannah Sommerville, is the same narrator for the Spells and Caramels series. She is a lot of fun to listen to and her joy in narrating the series is infectious.

Fun, unique story

The author has created a fun unique world; a magical paranormal world. The heroine, whp has lost her magical abilities, but can still talk to animals, helps the police solve the murder.
