Publisher's Summary

All Kelly Winters wanted was a quiet, simple life in the small coastal town of Haven, and for a time, she got that, until dead bodies began piling up, and she discovered she was a witch. Now, it’s all magic and mayhem.

Fortunately, Kelly isn't alone, and she's on the fast track to mastering these spells.

So when a YouTube convention set to take place in Haven is ruined when one of the main speakers is mysteriously found murdered, and police have her brother pinned as the primary suspect, she has no other choice than to investigate.

But dark forces are at work, the clocks ticking, and not everyone is telling the truth. Now, Kelly must expose the killer and unravel the secrets before the darkness takes hold.

This time the battle is personal, and she won't back down.

Excellent series with fun and quirky characters

I am really enjoying this series! This is the second book in the series, but it can be read as a stand-alone. Emma Watts did an excellent job bringing the reader up to speed at the very beginning of the book. This story was just as great as the first, complete with all the murder, mystery, magic, mayhem, and of course, the lovable and quirky characters. I loved it and, in fact, finished it in one sitting! And to make it even better, it’s narrated by Natalie Naudus! Counting the first book in the series, this is the 3rd book I’ve listened to that was narrated by Naudus. I am now a huge fan! She does an amazing job narrating and keeping all the characters consistent with unique voices without sounding forced or strange. She brings the book to life. Natalie Naudus has been added to my list of favorite narrators, and I will definitely be on the lookout for more of her work.
Overall, great addition to the series! I look forward to listening to the next in the series. I received a review copy at my request and voluntarily reviewed.

Cozy mystery

I liked the mystery in this book more then the first, however, book one was a lot more funnier then book 2.
The romance doesn't really go any where and I thought the guy she likes is a immature and she is wasting her time on him. I prefered the detective way more. I found him to be more mature but the other guy has secrets which I hope we found out what it is soon.

Would recommend to all since it is a clean book

An excellent read!

So enjoyable and interesting! I fell in love with this series all over again! The sequel is so much better than the first book - I thoroughly enjoyed myself.

The narrator does a fantastic job of giving these characters life! I had such a fun, great time listening to it! Excited for more.

Good, relaxing cozy mystery...

My second meeting with Kelly Winters has been even better than the first one. The second book in the series takes us back to the not so average town of Haven, where magic is an investigatory tool and witches work against an ancient curse...

This time the case Kelly gets involved in is personal; it's her brother who is the primary suspect so she has to find out really quickly who did it. The plot develops fast, there are a few possible and probable suspects besides Jamie, and the solution is logical, though maybe not so unexpected:) There is also some interesting development in the secondary plotline, that is Kelly's involvement in the world of magic; a mysterious man appears and there are some yet unexplained events taking place... I suppose we just have to wait and see what's going to happen next when it comes to Kelly's fight against the dark forces...

There are two particular things that I think make the book slightly better than the first in the series (I gave the first one a 4-star rating:)). The plot is more concise and doesn't waver so much from the murder case; all the additional information or events are strongly connected to the subplot of the curse Kelly is supposed to overcome and nicely fill in the story started in book one. I also like the fact that Kelly, while coming to terms with being a witch and trying to master her witchy skills, remains a rather rational human being, believing more in the power of facts and logic than the mystic mumbo-jumbo (though she uses her witchcraft quite willingly in her investigations:)) and as such cooperates with the police and doesn't shy away from the consequences of her actions...

The interpretation by Ms Naudus is very good; the pace is quite fast but the narration itself is clear and the characters easily distinguishable. There's also quite a bit of good acting, which nicely conveys the characters' emotions.

Generally, it's a very nicely interpreted,well-written, relaxing cozy mystery. I can honestly recommend it to every fan of the genre.

Magical Cozy Mystery

Book 2 continues Kelly's journey into coming into her powers and finding out who she is. I enjoy reading about the townspeople of Haven and all of the crazy unusual happenings there. The author has done a great job at world building in this series. The clues to the mystery were paced out perfectly so I was guessing until the end. The narrator does a fabulous job bringing the story and characters to life. Her distinct and easy to understand voices make this a great listen! I look forward to more in this series.

Another great witchy murder mystery!

Haven Witches: A Social Death
Haven Witches Mystery, Book 2
By: Emma Watts
Narrated by: Natalie Naudus
This is an audible book I requested and the review is voluntary.
I love this series! It is a fun series of witches, power, and mysteries. Great characters, touch of romance, and intrigue. In this book, our witch's brother gets charges with murder and she is determined to prove him innocent. Great plot and twists. Can't wait to read the next one!
The narrator is perfect for this book. She has the voices perfect for the personalities, and keeps the emotions right for the scene. Great job.

Doing what is right

This book was as equally as good as book 1 with the mystery still shrouding her mother. Doing what's right goes against the rules but some rules are meant to be broken, right? Nothing says family like getting your brother cleared of murder charges. The killer, while not surprising makes you wonder how could you have done this; I mean it's only going to separate you from the one you love. At this point in the story I really want to know more about Kelly's mother. Even more suspicion is pointed towards Ivy, wonder where that will lead... Kelly's brother and friend River may have to rethink the festival since they couldn't sponsor one of their own. Love this narrators work with the characters. I look forward to the new book.
