Publisher's Summary

Nineteen-year-old Mercy Habernackle is a witch gone off the rails. Causing problems with the law in her hometown, she's faced with two options. Go to a correctional institution or get shipped off to witch boarding school, or as her mother prefers to call it, finishing school. Choosing the latter, Mercy's mother, Linda, drives her daughter cross country to the Paranormal Institute for Witches, situated high in the beautiful Appalachian Mountains in cozy Aspen Falls, Pennsylvania.

Upon arrival, Mercy is faced with cheerful smiles, friendly people, and a sickly sweet roommate who has turned their dorm room into an advertisement for the Pottery Barn. Mercy had hoped her fellow witches would be more like her, dark, dreary, and a little bit self-destructive.

When the murder of a local teenager takes place on the first day of class, Sorceress Stone, headmistress of the college for wayward witches, takes the class on a consulting job to help the Aspen Falls Police Department solve the murder. Mercy and her mismatched classmates find themselves in the heart of the murder investigation and when the body of the murder victim suddenly goes missing and her roommate turns up abducted, Mercy must put aside her feelings of resentment about her gift and put her paranormal abilities to good use.

Throw in a smokin' hot cowboy wizard, a black cat that seems to be stalking her, and a Black Witch and you've got the first book in the new Witch Squad Cozy Mystery Series where the twists and turns just don't stop!

Witches, A murder, Evil, Mystery, Warlocks too!

The Witch Squad
A Witch Squad Cozy Mystery, Book 1
By: M.Z. Andrews
Narrated by: Lisa Cordileone
This was far better than I ever expected it would be. I expected it would be a teen book and really didn't think it would have the depth I wanted. I tried it and boy was I surprised! This was a true gem! A fun book with the paranormal side, great characters, wonderful plot, silliness, a mystery, side things to keep your mind going, a school of witches and warlocks learning their craft, evil lurking about, and a touch of romance. I truly enjoyed this book and will look for other books in this series.
This was an audible book and the narrator was perfect for this book! I loved her silliness when needed and the multiple voices she did so well!!! Great job!

Delightful light mystery and coming of age

The adventures of the Witch Squad entertain those of us who remember coming of age. Not quite fully formed witches replace our awkward adolescence, without the actual angst. I think those who just are coming of age will enjoy it too.

Wonderful!

This was such a great book! When I wasn’t listening to it, I wanted to be. Narrator was fantastic. She had to do several different voices and nailed it! I can’t wait to listen to the next one in the series. Highly recommend this fun read.

Cute

A bit rough around the edges, but good fun. Well paced, well told, imaginative. Not what I was expecting from the synopsis, but a good read.
