Publisher's Summary

Dead billionaires are not good for business!

That's what Aunt Pearl complains to Cen when the dead body is found in the cozy family inn at Westwick Corners.

Still, it's not Cen's problem. She lives an ordinary life away from her witch-ful family for a reason. She got her ordinary fiancee, and her ordinary job as a journalist - using no magic whatsoever, and no inconvenient local murder is going to change her comfortable existence.

Even if the entire town is now accusing Aunt Pearl of murdering her guest. Even if her fiancee is acting weird and talking about seeing ghosts. Even if the town's sexy new sheriff, Tyler Gates, treats her like the most hexing of all the witches.

If you love funny cozy mysteries infused with a dose of humor and the supernatural, you'll love this paranormal witch cozy!

Witch You Well is the first audiobook in the Westwick Witches Cozy Mysteries series by Colleen Cross.

From the author:

Westwick Corners isn't your typical small town. Or even a normal ghost town. It's where people go not to be found, and witches go to work their magic without attracting too much attention. The combination makes from some interesting and humorous mysteries, and the witches are always at the center of the action!

Ruby's cooking, Cendrine's amateur sleuth and investigator activities, and Aunt Pearl's magic school are always looking for that one secret ingredient that will propel the witches to fame and fortune, and put the small town of Westwick Corners back on the map again. The witches are forever cooking up new business opportunities while they unravel riddles, spin magic spells, and create their own witch mysteries.

    "Fun story."

    Cendrine “Cen” West lives in a small town called Westwick Corners. She is descendant from a powerful line of witches, but she doesn't practice that much. She is in the process of marrying the mayor and having the grand reopening of her Inn. Life is good... until the day of her grand reopening sees a billionaire murdered and all clues pointing to her Aunt Pearl. It's up to Cen to try to figure out who the murderer is, while trying to keep her Aunt Pearl from antagonising the new Sheriff, Tyler, and getting thrown in jail for murder.

    This was a fun read. I liked the characters but thought the mystery left a lot to be desired!! I'm sorry, but who leaves the murder weapon in a bin, in their room?? There were a few elements like this that had me rolling my eyes and thinking, seriously, you couldn't find a better way to handle that!!! The mystery of who murdered him was also kind of glaringly obvious. I wanted a little more subtlety, a lot more mystery!! I also didn't particularly like the fact that Cen fell for Tyler so quick.

    Other than that, it's a fun read. The characters are all well written, I liked Aunt Pearl a lot!! We get the typical cozy mystery feel to the book and it was easy to read. It's a book that I call a mindless read, and I don't mean that in a bad way! By "mindless read" I mean a book that I can read and not have to concentrate on too much or put a lot of effort into to.

    In all, this was an easy read with some flaws.

    Petrea Burchard was ok. She was clear and has a pleasant tone suitable for this type of book, but I found she didn't have enough cadences or tones for the different characters to really bring the story to life. She could have portrayed Pearl a lot.... nuttier ;) Lol.

    I was voluntarily provided this audiobook for free from the author, narrator, or publisher. This in no way affected nor influenced my thoughts.

    Story
    "Urban Fantasy and Cozy Mystery"

    Cendrine belongs to a family of witches. It is not something publicly discussed in the little town of Westwick, but not entirely a secret either. Cendrine is attending her wedding rehearsal at her family’s inn, when they find a corpse at the gazebo where the wedding was going to take place. There is a new sheriff in town, but finding the murderer will be much easier by using some magic, so Cendrine will be doing some sleuthing with the help of some of her family members.

    I was looking forward to this book. Urban fantasy and cozy mystery together is something that we do not see everyday, and it is a great combination for a pick me up, at least for me. This story has great and charismatic characters, like aunt Pearl. I really liked this character and the situations she created. There were some hilarious moments that made my day.

    Although Cendrine is the main character in the book, there was something missing that made her distinguishable. I think it was a good idea to have aunt Pearl and other characters as sidekicks to make the story work in a better way.

    It is not a long book, just under six hours, and the story kept my attention from beginning to end. This makes it ideal for lazy days or when someone doesn’t feel like committing to a longer or deeper book. It was a light, easy, and relaxing listen.

    Petrea Burchard did a very good job narrating this book. Checking audible I only see this title narrated by her, and I have to say that she did extremely well. The audio production was good, and her voice range and interpretation skills were impressive. I just found Cendrine’s interpretation a bit on the dull side, but this matches my perception of Cendrine’s personality, so it could have been intended. I think some parts required a more lively narration, but this is just my personal opinion.

    I really enjoyed this book, and I think it would delight both urban fantasy and cozy mystery fans. I am looking forward to the sequel.

    I received a copy of this book in audio format from the narrator in exchange for an honest review.

    "Great Book!"

    This is a great book with a wonderful story and well developed characters. The story flowed very well and was very enjoyable. This book will keep you reading long into the night and you will not want to put this book down until you finish. This was such a great read and full of surprises. The narrator did a wonderful job with this book. She did a great job with the different voices of each character in this book. It was very easy to listen to and I didn’t want to stop listening until the end. If you are looking for a great book with well-developed characters then you need to listen to this book. I am looking forward to listening to the next book by this author and narrator.

    "Very entertaining and fun cozy mystery"

    3.5 stars
    Entertaining story with great narration.

    This was just a fun, humorous, entertaining and very enjoyable cozy mystery. Bonus it's the first in a series so there are more fun filled adventures to come. Perfect book for the times you a light-hearted mystery with a little magic.

    Interesting and fun cast of characters. Cendrine is immediately likable but Aunt Pearl was like that one pesky relative we all have that is annoying and lovable at the same time. She almost stole the show. Tyler was also immediately likable. The relationship between them reminded me of Sally & the Sherriff in Practical Magic. Things are bound to get interesting in the future.

    This is the first book by Colleen Cross that I have read but it won't be the last. I'm looking forward to the rest of the series.

    Petra Burchard did a fantastic job with the narration. Her narration pulled me into the story from the start. Pleasant voice that is easy to listen to for long periods of time. Great character voices. Both male and female. She brought the characters and story to life. She is the perfect narrator for this series. Hopefully she will be narrating the rest of the series. Very enjoyable

    "Cozy Witches, Who Knew"

    This was a fun book to "read". There is the requisite crazy aunt, a possible new love interest, and a dastardly fiancé. The book is a good way to spend a lazy afternoon.

    "Witchy Little Cozy Mystery Romance! "

    Witchy Little Cozy Mystery Romance!

    Excellent narration with a little romance in the mix. This doesn’t quite make it as a romance, but there is enough there, so I’m going to count it!

    This is #1 in the Westwick Witches Series, and the only one in audio format.

    The witchcraft of this story has a very Bewitched style to it, especially with crazy relatives popping to and throw causing mischief all the time.

    ♥ Story ♥
    Cendrine is a witch who has recently acquired the somewhat defunct local newspaper of her small little town that sounds like it is on the outskirts of the Seattle, Wa area, or at least on that end of Washington state. The town is trying to rebrand itself in an effort to attract tourist. Her family owns the local inn/restaurant/bar and it’s days away from its grand opening. So when the famous travel writer they were counting on to help promote the place ends up dead, things take a detour on the hot mess train!

    Cen’s problems get even worse because her infuriating Aunt Pearl keeps setting things on fire and taunting the new sexy sheriff Tyler Gates who is completely oblivious to fact that magic exists. Oh, and did I mention Cen is engaged to the town’s Mayor and due to get married in less than a month.

    Cen has to use her amateur sleuthing skills to prove her family’s innocence without letting it slip to the world that they are witches. While doing this she also has to juggle helping her mom keep the grand opening on track, keep her aunt out of trouble, and decide if marrying her high school sweet heart is what she really wants. So, easy, right?

    ♥ Author ♥
    This is my first read-listen by Colleen Cross. It’s a Cozy Mystery, and very true to the sub-genre. No excessive cursing, sex, or violence. There were a lot of nice twists to the story for a very pleasant mystery read.

    ♥ Narrator(s) ♥
    Petrea Burchard did the narration, and this is the only title listed under her name @ Audible. Given how expressive the narration was, I would wonder if this is the author herself with a pen name for audio. The level of detail the narrator has is as if the they wrote it, if not, you could of fooled me. I mean that in the bests of ways!



    Overall it was a good read but sometimes I felt like I was missing some pages, or a book. It did not read like book one of a series. There were references to curses and grudges as if they were from a past book or series. I could not find any other titles that this could be a spin off from, or any short works that could have been the precursor works.
    Besides that, it was crafty, witchy read.

    "Fun Cozy Mystery"

    Although it was pretty easy to guess who the guilty parties were, it was great fun to watch Cen puzzle it out while trying to control her quirky relatives and keep the witches of Westwick a secret. The audiobook left some loose ends, particularly regarding Cen's romantic prospects, so I am hoping there are more books to come. The cast of characters was entertaining, and I would like to see more of them.

    The narration was fantastic! Ms. Burchard did a wonderful job of giving different voices to different characters and capturing the sweetness of Cen, the curmudgeonly nature of Aunt Pearl and the ghostly presence of Grandma V, among others.

    "Hooked from the beginning thanks to narration!"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Witch You Well to be better than the print version?

    Yes! Audio adds extra! A performance that you dont get when reading.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Not sure which character was my favorite but the narrator gave an amazing performance for so many characters I loved everybody


    What about Petrea Burchard’s performance did you like?

    See above answer! ^^^ I listen to a lot of cozy murder mysteries and she narrates them just right. There are so many good stories that become duds with the wrong narration when it comes to this genre.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Absolutely, yes!


    Any additional comments?

    I wasn't a big fan of cozy murder mysteries until I heard one with the right narration after that I was hooked. If the narration is doesn't fit then its wrong it changes the whole story. When its done right and so thankful its a part of a series so I can keep going. *I was provided this audio book by narrator for an honest review*

    Story
    "A Light and Entertaining Murder Mystery"
    If you could sum up Witch You Well in three words, what would they be?

    Really good fun.


    What other book might you compare Witch You Well to and why?

    It somewhat resembles Dose Vidanya by Sam Cheever and Whiskey Witches by S.M. Blooding. All three involve apparent elements of the paranormal and all are murder mysteries with kickass heroines with a sense of humor.


    What does Petrea Burchard bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    She reads very well and has a very expressive voice.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Aunt Pearl and Grandma's ghost consistently made me laugh. In general, it's a very funny mystery.
