Publisher's Summary

The weekend before her coffee shop's Grand Opening in the small Wisconsin town of Horizon, former Chicago marketing exec and hereditary Wiccan, Ellie Gooden, opens the back door to her new business...and finds murder. 

The former owner is dead in the middle of her kitchen, tied to a chair, covered in syrup and feathers, with a butcher knife sticking out of his chest. A stranger in a new town, Ellie climbs immediately to the top of a suspect list of one. To make matters worse, someone is vandalizing both her new shop and her new home, and the shade of the murdered man keeps urging her to solve the crime. 

As she struggles to launch her new business and salvage her reputation, she digs into the dead man's past, unearthing long-buried, small town secrets - secrets that have driven someone to kill. And by exposing the past, Ellie could be next.

Very Enjoyable Paranormal Cozy Mystery!

I loved this cozy mystery! The mystery was interesting. I absolutely love the small town setting.

I enjoyed listening to the narrator. I think that she did an excellent job expressing the characters' voices and accents.

I hope that the rest of the series is also released on Audible. If so, I will definitely purchase them.

Annoying lead character

This might be an ok book if the lead character weren't so annoying and hostile. The pacing of the story is also frustratingly slow. There are several times that characters begin to say something but then decide to stay mum. The narrator doesn't help either. Her cadence while reading only adds to the slow and frustrating pace. I forced myself to finish this book. I won't get the next one.
