Publisher's Summary

Welcome to Nocturne Falls, the town that celebrates Halloween 365 days a year. The tourists think it's all a show: the vampires, the werewolves, the witches, the occasional gargoyle flying through the sky. But the supernaturals populating the town know better. 

Living in Nocturne Falls means being yourself. Fangs, fur, and all.

Private investigator Wyatt West finds his job a little tedious most days, but that changes when he meets a bewitching blonde florist who needs a favor in the way of a wedding date. There's definitely something magical about her, but little does he know just how correct that first impression is.

Single mom Marigold Williams finds herself instantly attracted to Wyatt but doesn't dare tell this handsome human that she's a witch and things in Nocturne Falls are a little spookier than he suspects. He’s just a nice guy who’s offered to be her plus one. She doesn’t need to turn his world upside down with the truth over one date.

Despite that agreement, their feelings deepen, and both agree to try a relationship beyond their current temporary arrangement. Now Marigold must tell him about her witchy side. After all, he has a right to know whom he’s dating.

But when Wyatt unwittingly frees some dangerous magic, Marigold knows a life-changing sacrifice is the only way to set things right. Will her magic save him? And will he be able to handle the truth that comes with it?

Another great Nocturne Falls Book

Man.... this book was to short! I’m already waiting for the next one! If you’re like me and love these books you might also want to try The Ghost-in-Law and Miss Fortune Mysteries by Jana Deleon. They have the same funness to them.

Cute! Light heated romance

I always enjoy stories written by Kristen Painter and especially her Nocturne series. I found the “Detective wins the Witch” a light hearted, enjoyable read!
My only criticism is the narrators mis-pronunciation of the word “peony”! Grrrr...how can anybody mis-pronounce “peony”?! The narrator deserves a rating better than a two! Otherwise he was very good.

So cute!

I’m so glad I came across this series! Every story is so perfect and leaves you with a happy smile on your face! I like that the characters are further along in their lives and have lived real life experiences but are still open to finding love and happiness!

The worst book in an incredible series

This was an arduous listen and only the skill of the delightful BJ Harrison kept me listening. I love this series but this book should have been a third of the length and it would have been amazing.

I don’t know how you do it, but I love your stories , the romances, the sweetness of the growing affections, and the tense humor of people falling in love. I have LOVED all of your books. Also the Nocturne Falls Universe stories as well THANKS SO MUCH. Dave Worsham

Another winner!!!!!!

Another great story in Nocturne Falls. I can't get enough of these books. This time Marigold meets her love, Wyatt who was human but now has magical powers. Each time i listen to these books i feel like i am in the story with them. BJ Harrison does such a wonderful job at bringing the characters to life. If you have not read this series then you are missing a fantastic ride.

Another good edition to the series

I was hoping Marigold got her own story. I enjoyed this one just as much as the others. The author delivered a well written story with a good narrator to bring the characters to life.

Such an amazing story!

I am a huge fan of Kristen Painters Nocturne Falls series and I was seriously excited to get this book. I am so very glad I did because it is now one of my favorite stories in this series. I always feel like I am a part of the story when I read these books. Kristen Painter paints such a vivid picture of Nocturne Falls & the characters that you feel like you know them and you can see Nocturne Falls so clearly you never want to leave. I highly recommend this book to anyone and everyone. You won't be disappointed!

Another great installment

Kristen Painter has crafted another great installment in the Nocturne Falls series. As always her characters continue to grow. B.J. Harrison gives a wonderful performance as he brings it all to life.
