Publisher's Summary

Stormy Morgan left her hometown of Shadow Hills, Michigan, with one goal: To write the great American novel and strike it rich. She sold her novel not long after college, did relatively well, and then fell off a cliff into obscurity. Now, without a book contract, she’s back at her family restaurant in a one-stoplight town...and she’s convinced things couldn’t possibly get worse.

That feeling only lasts until her first shift, when on a trip to the storage building behind the restaurant, she literally trips over a body.

Roy Axe, Shadow Hills most hated “Axehole”, died a hard death only feet from the restaurant (and the second-floor apartment Stormy currently resides in). The detective on the case is none other than Hunter Ryan, Stormy’s high school boyfriend, and the man who occasionally still calls to her in dreams. Hunter only cares about solving a mystery - nothing else - so their reunion is tense.

In an attempt to distract herself from what’s happening, Stormy and her cousin Alice get drunk one night and pull out their great-grandmother’s old Ouija board, and it sets off a strange string of events, most of which seem magical...if you believe in that sort of thing, and Stormy isn’t sure she does.

Stormy has trouble deciding which problem to focus on, so she avoids them all until things start blowing up in her face.

Shadow Hills is a small town but the secrets that plague it run deep. Stormy is a woman - or maybe a witch - lost in a sea of magic and despair...but murder might just lead her out of it. That is if she can survive to solve the case, that is.

I give honest reviews

I don't say I liked a book I didn't and I don't automatically give 5 stars. Although this author I'd one of my most favorite, I must say, that in my opinion, she has had one or two not-so-great books lately.
That being said, in addition to that I also have to say that this is possibly her best book yet.
The mystery was good. It took a little bit of effort to solve, unlike many other cozy mysteries I have read. The characters were well-developed and the main couple didn't just jump into bed. Although it's probably a foregone conclusion that they will eventually, there is room for a bit of anticipation to see when.
I also like that it was set, not in, but near Hemlock Cove, a very familiar place to Midwest Witches fans like me.
Lastly, I want to say that I hope that we keep this narrator for the series duration. She sounds like very adult and doesn't try to put too much emphasis where there shouldn't be any. She also does fairly good male voices.

4 stars

Sinfully Delicious is an entertaining and enjoyable paranormal cozy mystery series with engaging characters and entertaining plot. Stormy and Hunter have romantic chemistry, but it doesn't dominate the story. I enjoyed the interactions between the characters and the witty dialogue. The resolution of the mystery was a surprise I didn't see coming. I look forward to the next book in this series.

What a Hoot

I almost stopped listening when the topic of politics came up, so glad I didn’t.

I haven’t laughed so much during one book since I don’t know when. Love Stormy, Sebastian, Grandpa, and Hunter.

Narration good, hope this series continues

I wanted to like it

I really hate that I didn’t like this book...at all. It lacked any depth and I found myself shaking my head through most of it because even the “everyday” stuff was not believable.

Favorite yet

I loved this story. If you enjoy the dynamic of Bay, Clove, and Thistle in Amanda M. Lee's "Witches of the Midwest," you will be a fan of this book. The characters are interesting. There is a grumpy elderly Grandpa, who would remind me of Tilly (not as crazy). I totally recommend this story. Great narrator too.

Even Jill Sounded Bored...

## Sinfully Delicious
I picked up this series eagerly, having been a fan of AML’s Mystic Caravan series a few years ago and expected this to hold that same light!

Unfortunately...I was wrong.

The book isn’t particularly bad. It has a lot of great qualities to it — the drama is television-worthy, the mystery itself was a fun puzzle to keep you cozy, and the characters were actually pretty interesting being family-centric, which is a nice change from the Only Child, Lonely Main Character.

But it stops there. The complaints I have about this book alone is vast. My first disappointment being that it’s not as foodie-themed as I expected. Everything about the first glance of this book (cover art, series and title name, the setting) suggested we would be met with some delicious food appreciations and baked treats that would make you wanna cook and eat while you read. With witchcraft and magic to top it off and make it even better. Talk about putting the fun in yum!

Turns out, the only real reference or appreciation for food was the fact that the family owned a diner. That’s about it. And I was met with disappointment. On top of that, the writing was incredibly lackluster, filled with the same two or three conversations the MC had with each character that would only involve her history with her ex boyfriend, how badly she wanted to leave that small town she grew up with, and how her writing career burnt up in fiery flames after only writing two books.

I’m not kidding. The same conversation, no matter who Stormy spoke to, was about how she was back in town and why, and about her history with her high school sweetheart. Honestly, for a small town to be that obsessed with a teenage couple that eventually burned out is really weird. It made me think this was a poor attempt at mimicking Stars Hollow in Gilmore Girls and turning it into a mystery. And witches, can’t forget about the fact that there’s supposed to be magic and witchcraft in this book. Which you will. It was akin to a basic “Who dunnit?” Episode of a TV show, and then the author went back and tried to fit some witchcraft elements wherever she could.

I didn’t even realize I was 30min away from finishing the book until the last second. That’s how much just...didn’t happen.

Overall, if youre expecting a fun, quirky mystery filled with any kind of steam and sugar, this is not what you’re looking for.

Unexpected delight

I thought this was going to be a run of the mill witchy cozy (which is what I wanted), but it was more complex, character driven, the story was unexpected, the supernatural aspect of the storyline was unconventional - everything was different from the tried and true (and loved by me) standard layout for these types of books. It was different, and I probably would r have read it if I k eq how different, but I read it, I LOVED it, I highly recommend it, and I’m just about to tuck into the next book in the series - here’s hoping the next book is half as good!

Magic yet everyday life.

I don't read many books on magic but this one was mostly everyday life , a romance yearning, and some magic. It was an easy read that showed what life can be like in a small town. The only issue was with the way the romantic- want- to- be kept themselves from the romance. Somewhat typical but not too bad. All in all a feel good book.

Nice but slow and silly

Nice small town detective story with added supernatural element which isn’t fully explored and feels peripheral. The ENDLESS meaning about a failed writer’s career gets pretty tedious too. We get it, you’re disappointed your second book was a flop - you’re also ONLY 28. Not exactly old for an author. The final reveal of the detective plot is just silly and also very gross story wise. Not for me. Good narration though.
