Publisher's Summary

Caitlyn Le Fey is enjoying her first autumn in England, nut picking in the forest, creating delicious treats in her grandmother’s enchanted chocolate shop, and dreaming of cozy evenings with the handsome Lord James Fitzroy. But the peace is shattered when a mysterious woman claiming to be a witch arrives in the village. Some love her, others fear her...and one person is driven to murder.

Soon Caitlyn finds herself drawn into a mystery with links to ancient witch trials, and - with the help of her toothless vampire uncle and a few magical spells of her own - she sets out to do some sleuthing. But strange things are happening, and Caitlyn is worried and confused. Why isn’t her kitten, Nibs, growing any larger? What does the new guest at Huntingdon Manor really want? And what is the jewel that seems to be exerting a sinister influence over her cousin Pomona?

There are dark forces gathering in the village of Tillyhenge, and Caitlyn is about to discover that the savage tradition of witch hunting is still very much alive....

A story of wit and imagination

I have listened to the entire series of the Bewitched by Chocolate books, and this one is one of my favorites. Although it is primarily a cozy mystery with humor and whimsical magic, there was a timeliness to the plot line that appealed to my sense of justice. It dealt with the dynamics of bigotry and fear of what is perceived as "other" and the idea of witch hunters as people who spread superstition and provoke persecution. In our current time, where we see fear and hatred on the rise, it's a reminder of an earlier brand of bigotry and ignorance. Double, Double, Toil and Truffle has some funny scenes that I look forward to in a book by H.Y. Hanna. There are also a couple of subplot story lines that promise to become more evolved and interesting in books to come. Together the characters, plot and humor work for me to make for a very enjoyable read.

Magical combination

I’m enjoying all these HY Hanna/Pearl Hewitt productions. The stories are fun and light and also well written and Pearl captures the spirit and tone perfectly. They are like chocolate for the listening. And both author and narrator “get” animals. I love the side plot of Bran and Nibs.

PARANORMAL WITH A TWIST

I DO ENJOY THIS SERIES WITH IT'S MODERN LORD OF THE MANOR, TRANSPLANTED BRITISH AMERICAN PROTAGONIST, CRANKY AND MYSTERIOUS WIDOW MAGS, AND ALL THE OTHERS. AMIDST THE MURDER AND MAYHEM, THIS BOOK BRINGS US CLOSER TO RESOLUTIONS OF RELATIONSHIPS, FAMILIAL AND OTHERWISE, NOT TO MENTION A GROWING CONCERN OVER A MYSTERIOUS NECKLACE. LOTS OF THINGS GOING ON IN THIS ONE. DO NOT MISS IT!

Love love love

People in the village are getting ugly (with their actions, not their actual appearance). I wish they'd all just turn into frogs! Or toads. Even better! Sometimes I just wanna smack Evie for not doing the sensible thing. But I feel so bad for her. The teenage girls in the town are horrible to her! Rotten little turds! Pomona is even stranger in this book. I don't like her character much right now, but I'm sure someone's bewitching her or something and making her act the way she's acting.

Enchanting 6th book in comedic cozy mystery series

Double, Double, Toil and Truffle is an enchanting 6th book in the Bewitched by Chocolate series by H.Y. Hanna. American Caitlyn Le Fey is beginning to feel at home living with her maternal grandmother in England and learning the family secret to making mouth-watering chocolates. However, Caitlyn can’t help but get involved in investigating murders that occur in the small village she now calls home. In this installment, the murder victim is newcomer Minerva Chattox who prior to her murder put on a big production posing as a witch and pretending to heal the villagers — for money of course. Caitlyn stumbles upon Minerva’s dead body, which is posed like they did in the old witch trials. Then Caitlyn learns that Lord Fitzroy’s current houseguest is a self proclaimed witch hunter. A few villagers also seem to be glomming onto the witch hunter and they have Caitlyn and her grandmother in their sights. There is also a side story of Caitlyn’s teenaged-cousin Evie turning a group of mean girls into chickens. The ensuing chaos lasts over several chapters and is quite funny. Sadly the romance between Caitlyn and James doesn’t progress at all in this book and the few scenes they were in together felt frustrating to say the least. I was so disappointed how Caitlyn treated James during their date - all because she felt her hair smelled bad (I never thought she was this petty). Pearl Hewitt did a wonderful job narrating this audiobook. She provides varying voices for all male and female characters, as well as animals. Pearl shows enthusiasm and excitement in her narrations, which is perfect for a comedic cozy mystery like this one. While this was not my favorite book in this series, I look forward to listening to other books in the series, especially to see if Caitlyn and James ever get together!

The witch hunter

I love this series, it has a lovable cast, a touch of English charm, and a well written mystery. In this installment a witch hunter comes to town just as a con artist (pretending to be a witch) gets murdered. Coincidence?

Brilliant

This is one of my favourite series by H.Y. Hanna. It has the perfect blend of mystery, romance, and humour. I love the comedy elements that Uncle Viktor brings to the story. He always makes me laugh. Each book has its own mystery but there are also threads of subplots that carry over to the next book and it is these mysteries that really have me enthralled with the series and keeps me coming back for more. Caitlyn is still trying to find her biological parents. There is a mysterious, ominous presence and the drama with her cousin Pomona continues. Following Caitlin and James' cute relationship also has me entertained. I'm hoping there will be plenty more books in this series. I voluntarily reviewed an advance reading audio copy.
