A witch cozy mystery.
Book ONE.
Pepper Jasper, an Australian witch who has long practiced traditional witchcraft, does not believe in the supernatural - such as Werewolves and Shifters, or Vampires.
Pepper moves from Sydney to the cozy town of Lighthouse Bay, answering a desperate plea from her aunts to help with their failing Bed and Breakfast business.
She discovers her aunts are more eccentric than she remembered, the Bed and Breakfast does not serve breakfast, and the cottages for lease have strange themes. And what’s more, within minutes of her arrival, she stumbles across a dead body.
Pepper soon has her hands full, contending with a murder mystery, irritating guests including the enigmatic Lucas O’Callaghan who is convinced every woman wants to fall into his arms, and her aunts, who are hiding more than one dark secret.
Who or what lurks in the forbidden room at the end of the dark corridor?
Why do the aunts insist she drink copious quantities of special label wine?

very crazy

by Ashley Magruder

I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review... This novel was very interesting to say the least about some of the books I've read... no the last Witch Cozy Mystery book that I read was kind of funny but this one was more serious and more scary... I guess they jumped from Series to Series... But the storyline was still great and the characters was still wonderful to say the least I mean there is nothing bad to say I enjoy them all wonderfully...

Cute Adventure !!

by Emily Pennington

Pepper Jasper was returning home to live (temporarily, she hoped) with her crazy aunts. She was broke and her aunts needed her help with their Bed & Breakfast business which was not doing too well. As the cab dropped her off, she could see that Mugwort Manor was run down. A fancy car drove up fast and splashed mud all over Pepper. Their first guest had arrived. He went inside to register, just as a body fell through the skylight!

Lucas O’Callaghan called the police and they all moved into the dark, dreary living room. Lucas told them he had just inherited the Ambrosia Winery nearby. Pepper’s aunts somehow looked strangely frightened? The body had marks on it as if an animal had attacked, and there were bruises on his throat. As they sat there, the aunts talked with Lucas about having purchased wine at a discount from Henry, the deceased owner. Lucas responded that business would continue as before and about there being a demand for that type of wine. Pepper felt like she was missing something and there was another meaning in the words.

After showing Lucas to his cabin, Pepper returned for lunch at the Manor. Her aunts handed her wine, which she refused -- but they insisted she drink. What was going on? Why was Lucas acting so strangely? What secrets were being kept from her?

This was a fun read, with all kinds of zany characters. What I enjoyed was that it wasn’t easy to figure out who killed the man on the roof. We have an assortment of suspects to choose from, but it just is not obvious. But don’t worry, the story line will guide you here and there until you are totally confounded – and then spring the solution on you! The reader will enjoy this book – don’t miss your strange visit to the Manor! You won’t forget it! I received a copy of this book from Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review; needless to say, I also bought my own copy to read it again!

Fun and quirky cozy

by John L

Morgana Best introduces the reader to a new fun and quirky cozy mystery read that involves not only witches, shifters, but also vampires, though not in a blood-sucking manner. Once again the use of magic and the paranormal is utilized to help the amateur sleuth's aid the detectives in solving the crime. I am definitely looking forward to adding the next books in this series to my TBR pile, which is growing so very fast, I might add.

Good book

by Anonymous

I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review. I'm glad there are more books to this otherwise you would wonder what else is going on. This has some weird characters and an oddly different story. That being said it's seems like the story is left unfinished. The characters are great but what is happening between the two main characters? I wanted more information about everything in this book
Maybe it will be in the next book.

A delightful cozy mystery

by SATReader

I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review.

Morgana Best has a vivid imagination and polished this fun and fast-paced story with delightful descriptions and an assortment of captivating characters. Her non-American spellings did not detract from the reading and offered the story another level of interest. I am very curious about the rest of the series and look forward to reading more from Ms. Best.

The interplay between Pepper and Lucas O’Callaghan makes one curious how they will manage to solve a mysterious murder with all their distractions. Add Pepper's crazy aunts, family secrets, and a fabulous mixture of cast members (felines included) to the muddle and the craziness becomes humorously epic.

A classic mystery novel I feel you will enjoy. I know I did.
