Publisher's Summary

Zinnia Riddle doesn't use her witch powers much these days. She works as a clerk at the Wisteria Permits Department, where there hasn't been much need for spells and potions...until now.

When a beloved coworker is found dead next to her desk, the whole office gets paranoid. Is one of them a killer? Did the victim leave behind clues in the book she was writing? Is there a town-wide conspiracy, or is some lone serial predator on the loose?

The police are always two steps behind the evil that's threatening the peaceful town. Now it's up to Zinnia Riddle and the witches in her coven to uncover the secrets hiding in plain sight.

Will Zinnia's rusty magic hold up against a powerful enemy?

Wolves of Wisteria is the sixth book set in the Wisteria Witches Mysteries universe and the first book featuring Zinnia Riddle in her own thrilling mystery!

Shift in Tone and Pace but Still Solidly Wisteria

This book was given to me for free at my request and I provided this voluntary review.
This is the 6th book in the Wisteria Witch Mysteries by Angela Pepper and the first book about Zara’s aunt Zinnia.
The story takes place almost entirely before Zara and Zoey arrive in Wisteria. As such it has a different tone and cast than the first 5 books.
Zinnia is more responsible and less zany than Zara. She is more experienced with witchcraft so there is less joy of discovery and exploration of the world and wonders of this quirky, charming suburbia.
The format of the story is more about office life and the ole of your coworkers as a pseudo family as they discover that one of their co-workers was murdered. This down put a bit of a downer on the book. Although Zara deals with ghosts, more are completely unknown to her to here we have people grieving and dealing with how you carry on after losing an acquaintance.
In a meta twist, the co-worker in question was a writer in her spare time and fashioned a fantastic fan fic where each of her co-workers possessed magical powers or properties. How much did she know and how much was a fun story? There are also plenty of jokes about writing including how some series decide to split off with a side character.
Angela Pepper gets to flex some different muscles with this series but there are plenty of connections and call forwards to the main series – including relatives of and cameos from town residents we know and love.
This story had a few scenes that were more intense than I’ve come to expect from the author and frequent flashbacks made the real slightly more challenging than previous installments.
By the time you get to the end everything falls into place. I’m glad the next volume is already available and ready to launch into.
Rosemary Benson has the unenviable task of being the second narrator of the series after Tiffany Williams has narrated the first five. It makes sense that Zara and Zinnia have different voices and so while I did need to adjust my expectations, she did an excellent job managing the voices of the new cast of characters and making known characters recognizable while still giving her own performance rather than try to mimic Williams. She is a wonderful narrator in her own right.

Loved it!

After listening to Wisteria Witches I had to pick this one up. I love thats it is a backstory on Zinnia, which takes place before Zara arrives in town and finishes up in the same timeframe. It certainly helped me understand Zinnias thoughts and actions throughout the other book. This is an excellent companion with its own magical murder mystery! I cant wait to grab more in the series! Great cozy with great narration! I received a free review copy of this book at my request and have voluntarily left this review.

Slow beginning/better ending

I had to force myself to continue to read in the beginning. It was very slow moving and not really interesting. Maybe 2/4 of the way through it started to get good but not the greatest. The ending was way better and kind of put the rest of the books together. I will continue to read the series hopefully the next one will be better.

Wolves of Wisteria

Getting to step back and get Zinnia's story was such a delight. I really enjoyed her quirky character in book 1 and this book gives so much insight into her and how she became how she is. It was also so eye opening to the wonderful little town. My heart really went out to her as the story unfolded and the ending kinda broke my heart for her. Zinnia still has may mysteries to share that I hope will come out in future books and I so look forward to those. This series is turning out to be a blast! The narration was very nice as well.

BORING !

Don’t waste your time. I loved the first five books in this series, but this one is completely lack-luster.
The characters are mundane, there’s no fun and suspense, and the reader is monotone.
Are you sure Angela Pepper wrote this??
Suffered through three hours.

Great Read

Wolves of Wisteria (Wisteria Witches #6) was a good read by Angela Pepper. Zinnia Riddle now works as a clerk at the Wisteria Permits Department, where she doesn't practice her witch powers. One of her beloved coworkers is found dead at her desk and everyone starts getting paranoid in the office. Zinnia Riddle and the witches in her coven make it their mission to find out what happened to her coworker. I really enjoyed this book and can't wait to read more by the author.

Entertaining well read story

An entertaining well read story. Characterisation is well done. Some of the characters introduced in the earlier Wit he’s of Wisteria books are developed more and their back story is developed. Could be listened to as a stand alone book as well as part of the Witches of Wisteria books.

A good story, with great narration

An interesting magical murder mystery, I didn’t enjoy this book as much as some of the others by the same author. I think it didn’t have quite the same light hearted touch. Still a good read though.

Audiobook: it was strange having a different narrator this time around, but I think she did an excellent job of capturing the tone of the book, and bringing it to life.

Fantastic!!!

Picking up this book as the 'second' in the series, I was a bit sceptical before I started reading as I was afraid that I would be lost, however as others have mentioned, its easy to pick up as the events in this book occur before the first book. Looking forward to reading the original book in the series !

best so far

What a great book. Narrator was perfect and I enjoyed her better than the previous narrator for Zara's stories. This book has really provided much needed background and filled some of the Grand Canyon size plot holes in previous books. I wish all the books where this enjoyable. It feels like a different author wrote this it's much more mature in content and style. More Zinnia stories please.
