Publisher's Summary

An escape - that's exactly what Birdie Devaine needs when witches around the world publicly announce their existence.

Instead of performing for the sold-out crowd at her world-famous magic show in Vegas, Birdie runs away from the dazzling lights to her hometown in Mississippi. Back to the town she swore off over a century ago.

She thinks she has it all planned out - keeping busy with renovating an old beautiful house and eventually fading away from the spotlight. But the house has its secrets, including the haunted cemetery that Birdie is now responsible for. It doesn't help when her nosy neighbor catches on to Birdie's big secret - that she's a true witch with real magical powers.

But when the busybody turns up dead on Birdie's new property, the former southern debutante becomes the prime suspect in the case. Cue the ladies of Witch Hazel Lane - a group of women who've stuck together for 40 years. With their help, Birdie is on the hunt for the real killer. Will they help get her off the hook? Will Birdie's true nature stay secret? And what is she supposed to do with the stray dog that refuses to leave her house?

Not bad for a first in the series.

J.L. Collins has crafted a story that’s not bad for a first in the series. I’m hoping for more in the second book. Tiffany Morgan, as always, gave an above average performance as she brought it all to life. I’m about to start the next in the series.

A Fun Beginning to A New Series

I really liked this quick, fun beginning to a new series. I have been looking for a new series to start while I wait for my favorite authors to put out new books and, being an exceptionally picky reader/listener, it has proved to be challenging. First and foremost, a book has to keep my attention from the beginning. This book did that! Fun, clean and entertaining, and for once, the main character isn't poking her nose into a police investigation, thinking she knows better than everyone else! I recommend you check it out.
