In the first in New York Times bestselling author Lynn Cahoon’s Kitchen Witch series, Mia Malone is starting over in Magic Springs, Idaho—where murder is on the menu . . .
What’s a kitchen witch to do when her almost-fiancé leaves her suddenly single and unemployed? For Mia Malone, the answer’s simple: move to her grandmother’s quirky Idaho hometown, where magic is an open secret and witches and warlocks are (mostly) welcome. With a new gourmet dinner delivery business—and a touch of magic in her recipes—Mia’s hopes are high. Even when her ex’s little sister, Christina, arrives looking for a place to stay, Mia takes it in stride.
But her first catering job takes a distasteful turn when her client’s body is found, stabbed and stuffed under the head table. Mia’s shocked to learn that she’s a suspect—and even more so when she realizes she’s next on a killer’s list. With Christina, along with Mia’s meddling grandma, in the mix, she’ll have to find out which of the town’s eccentric residents has an appetite for murder…before this fresh start comes to a sticky end. . . .
This is the first book in the Kitchen Witch mysteries series by Lynn Cahoon.
I knew when I picked this up and saw it was Lynn Cahoon that I would love this. This is a new area for Cahoon. Now she is delving into a witchy cozy with culinary themes. What a great combo!
This story really captivated me. I had read the teaser novella that came before this story. Definitely check it out for some much needed back story. It’s called Chili Cauldron Curse.
The mystery was great and it totally holds your attention. Plus, I love a good witchy story with cozy themes. I am definitely hooked on Mia Malone and her Kitchen Witch series. Magic Springs might be my new favorite place to be.
If you like cozy mysteries, definitely check this one out. You won’t be disappointed.
