Publisher's Summary

After moving to the magical world of Pinecroft Cove, will Tamsyn’s life ever be normal again?

Tamsyn Bassett is having a bad week. Like the "losing your job and getting dumped by your boyfriend" kind of bad. So, when her great-aunt invites her to spend the summer at her inn on a remote island in Maine, Tamsyn jumps at the chance. But instead of the peaceful getaway she expected, she's immediately confronted with the preposterous revelation that she's descended from a long line of kitchen witches and is the last hope of her generation to keep magic alive in Pinecroft Cove. That she's the world's worst cook could be an issue.

As if navigating a strange new world of spells, magic, and exploding blueberry pies isn't enough to handle, that awkward boy who had a crush on her when they were kids seems to turn up everywhere she looks. Only, now that he's a super-dreamy doctor, it's Tamsyn's turn to be the awkward one. If she didn't know better, she'd swear someone put a hex on her.

One more thing. Tamsyn's pretty sure she's being haunted, and not by just any ghost but by Doctor Dreamy's dead uncle. If she can't harness her powers in time to figure out the truth behind his mysterious death, she may never have a moment of peace again.

When death strikes the island’s controversial real estate mogul, will Tamsyn’s newly discovered powers be any match for murder?

Don’t miss the new Witches of Pinecroft Cove series of paranormal cozy mysteries!

Enjoyable story - annoying narration

The narrator does a pretty good job, but she tends to life her voice just before every pause/end of sentence. Reminds me of Allison Hannigan's character in American Pie - "This one time, at band camp..." Gave me a headache.

With that said, It was a wonderful, cozy mystery. I liked the characters and the story itself.

Fun paranormal cozy mystery

This is a fun paranormal cozy mystery. I can't even imagine losing my job, and boyfriend in the same week. Then getting a letter from a Great Aunt asking me to come live with her. To find out I am a witch on top of it all would be too much for my brain and heart to handle. This is just the beginning of what Tamsyn goes through in this book. It was fun to listen too during my commute to work.

good mystery

I had no clue who the perpetrator was. What a twisted path to the villainy. I enjoyed the journey. The teaser at the end is intriguing. I voluntarily listened to a free copy of this and am giving an honest review. The narrator did a good job bringing it to life.

Fun Read

This is a fun book. I enjoyed that Tamsyn doesn't just accept what she is being told. She has to learn things about herself for herself. The other characters are interesting and have great chemistry with Tamsyn. The mystery is entertaining with its twists and turns along the journey to the big reveal. The narrator has a nice voice and seems to be a natural storyteller. I look forward to the next in the series.

All thoughts and opinions are my own, and in no way, I have been influenced by anyone.

Very Entertaining Paranormal Cozy

I received this book for free. I am voluntarily posting this review and any opinions expressed herein are my own.

This is the first book in The Witches of Pinecroft Cove series. It starts in a similar vein to a lot of cozies in that the MC loses her job, her boyfriend, and her home which then allows her to, in essence, return back home. In this case, the MC Tamsyn moves in with her great aunt to help with the bed & breakfast and while living there, learns that her family and Tamsyn herself are all witches. Besides being a witch, there's also fun paranormal elements to this story. Tamsyn is a very likeable character - adorable even. I especially liked her conversations with her great aunt - which often brought a chuckle. I really liked that the awkward boy who had a childhood crush on her was now a very handsome doctor and that there was no insta-love between the characters. The mystery was interesting and entertaining.

The narrator, Stephanie Murphy, made you almost feel as if a friend were telling you a story - her voice was warm and inviting with just the right amount of tongue in cheek whimsy.

Spell catching mystery

I enjoyed this book. This is the first book by this author I have read or listened to but it won't be the last, especially as I have already downloaded book two. I like the characters and the whole quirky magic scene, where the magic doesn't always work.making the book funny. The mystery was good and even though I had guessed the reason with the twist in the tale I wasn't quite right. The story also had the slightly embarrassing start of a romance. Making the story over all a good listen that while listening to the hours will just fly by, like magic.
Tamsyn have just lost her job, her boyfriend and her home receives a latter from an elderly aunt asking her to come and help out at her bed and breakfast. Which is just what Tamsyn needs a fresh start, despite it being the place her mother died so goes. Alone to find out her life hasn't finished being turned upside, the truth is her aunt doesn't really need help Tamsyn is the one that needs the help, help to learn magic because she is a witch. Getting over that fact or trying to come to turns with the strange things going on, Tamsyn agrees to meet her fellow witch's at a party. Only for the hosts uncle to die on the way there in a plane crash. Was it suicide? Something wrong with the plane? An accident or was it murder? The police decide suicide and close the investigation. Tamsyn knows better the ghost and crow that seem to be following her tell her others wise and she sets out to solve the case on her own, with a little bit on help from a grumpy cat, a cute guy that had a crush on her when she was growing up and magic.
I liked the narrator, you could tell which character was speaking as they had there own voices, which is a plus when listening to an audio book.
