Publisher's Summary

Since arriving in the tiny English village of Tillyhenge, Caitlyn is discovering that there are lots of perks to being a witch (although sadly, magic still can't make your thighs thinner or stop you acting like an idiot every time you meet handsome Lord James Fitzroy),

But when the nasty housekeeper at Huntingdon Manor is murdered and Caitlyn becomes the main suspect, she finds herself surrounded by suspicious villagers. With the help of her sassy American cousin and a mischievous black kitten - not to mention the old village witch and her shop of enchanted chocolates - Caitlyn sets out to clear her name.

She soon realises that this is no simple murder. Her sleuthing leads her to an ancient ring with mythical powers - a ring worth killing for. But with a few clever spells and some chocolate magic, Caitlyn just might solve the mystery - and find her real family too!

Another great book!

This is the second in the series and I loved it as I did the first.
The plot is well developed as well as the characters and I find myself excited as I'm listening to the audiobook.
I wish I could reach in and taste the magical chocolates.
I'm definitely going to purchase the physical copies of this series as I really enjoy them so far.
Off to the next in the series!

Charming Cozy Will Enchant Your Chocolate Cravings

Witch Chocolate Fudge is the second enchanting and charming book in the Bewitched by Chocolate series by H.Y. Hanna. It is fun, lighthearted, and thoroughly entertaining, with several laugh-out-loud moments. The story begins soon after the first book ends (Dark, Witch & Creamy), with American Caitlyn Le Fey renting an attic room in a chocolate shop in the Cotswolds village of Tillyhenge (yes, the town has a stone circle just like Stonehenge).

In this story, Caitlyn gets involved in uncovering the murder of a longterm housekeeper at the Huntington Estate (James Fitzroy’s manor house) after it is uncovered that she was the last person to see the housekeeper alive. Thus, she is the #1 suspect on the police’s short list. Before the housekeeper was killed, however, Caitlyn overheard her threaten one of the maids with blackmail for attempting to steal a family heirloom. It turns out the maid was only one of several people the housekeeper were blackmailing, and soon the number of suspects are many.

Besides the murder mystery, we also find out a little more about Caitlyn’s parentage. The cranky chocolatier she lives with, the Widow Mags, is definitely her grandmother, although she won’t talk about it and we are no closer to finding out what happened to Caitlyn’s mother (still no mention of who her father might be). Nevertheless, the Widow Mags did teach Caitlyn a few new tricks with chocolate, such as getting lace butterflies made out of chocolate to fly.

Pearl Hewitt was simply sublime in narrating this audiobook. Her enthusiasm and excitement are much appreciated and her interpretation of Uncle Viktor is especially endearing with his Eastern-Europe accent. Pearl provides varying voices for all characters and she demonstrates sophistication and innocence in all the right places. For example, there is a little girl in this story who loves chocolate and Pearl narrates her voice with wonder and awe, as well as a bit of hesitation as the girl doesn’t know if the Widow Mags is a good witch or a bad witch.

In summary, I highly recommend Witch Chocolate Fudge for all who appreciate cozy mysteries with a dash of the supernatural. I can’t wait to listen to the next audiobook in this series!

Charming cozy with a twist of magic

If you love HY Hanna’s other work you will love this series too. It’s set in a charming English village with a cast of characters full of personality. The narrator does a fantastic job of bringing all the charm to life. This book is not too mystical & out there what so ever. It’s only a sprinkle of supernatural and 90% cozy mystery

Very light

I guess I should have expected this story to be very light reading, and it is...however, I don't think the story is as strong as others, that H. Y. Hanna has written, although the narrator somewhat makes up for it.

Witch Chocolate Fudge

Love these “Bewitching “ stories. The second one is great. Love Pearl’s narrative as Caitlyn is a suspect in the murder of the Fitzroy housekeeper! So many twists. Caitlyn gets “help?” from Angela and her grandmother. Enjoying this series so much!

Earns 5/5 Magical Chocolate Butterflies…Brilliant!

It’s H.Y. Hanna’s story that has “bewitched” me. To start Caitlyn overhears the curmudgeon housekeeper accuse one of the maids of stealing a Fitzroy family heirloom. But when the housekeeper is found murdered, investigators still suspect Caitlyn. She was near the crime scene, and when her alibi flakes, it’s easier to focus on her opportunity and means. Not again! The ‘cozy’ murder mystery is clever with interesting suspects, plausible motives, secrets, mythology behind the heirloom, and more than murder at the Huntingdon Estate. But threading through this is the continuing mystery of Caitlyn’s parentage and the culture of witchcraft. The paranormal theme is realistic, not hocus pocus, just some incantations to enhance the delicious confections and to get out of a few predicaments. Her relationship with Widow Mags is improving, and Caitlyn is beginning to show some aptitude for witchcraft, and of course, creating delicious chocolate delights. But there seems to be some hidden secrets that could lead to more magic, more ritual, more witchcraft. Her snooping uncovers more about her elusive family, a photo album, an old picture, and more questions. And her newly discovered inner strength comes in handy when gossip turns to anger.

It is always delightful to revisit the magic H.Y. Hanna brings to this series by listening to the audio version once again expertly narrated by Pearl Hewitt. Her voice artistry has always greatly enriched my experience with a her marvelous British dialects bringing to life each of residents and visitors of Tillyhenge. The story is a third-person narrative, so her natural British style dialect was pleasant and enjoyable. With the dialogue I enjoyed Caitlyn’s voice that showed a reticence or self-conscience manner, and with minute changes to her tone, she illustrated well a mature age for Widow Mags and the housekeeper, the education or status of Lord Fitzroy, and millennial youth like Pomona, and an Irish brogue for the gardener. Its been an education to hear so many different ways to speak “British.” I really enjoyed her East European dialect for multi-centuries-old Viktor, the sometime vegetarian vampire. The “male voice challenge”? Pearl did a very good job of that gender issue. I love Pearl’s voice and narration skill that I wish she could read to me 24/7!
