On her fiftieth birthday, Grace uttered a plea to the universe. As the saying goes, ‘be careful what you wish for’...
For the first time in years, traveling nurse Grace Littleton is out of work.
Her on-again off-again boyfriend is with a younger woman, and her only son has just jetted off to Europe.
Alone, unemployed, and unsatisfied, Grace is on a search for something more.
A magical village in the Vermont countryside seems to hold some answers… and a few major problems to boot.
Hypnotized squirrels attacked an elderly gentleman in town.
Who brainwashed the critters?
Then there’s the devilishly handsome bookstore owner who won’t give Grace the time of day.
With her pit bull Lucky at her side, Grace tackles the problems one by one -- not because she wants to, but because she really has no other options.
For Grace, the end of the line is in Covenstead, Vermont.
This is the first book in the Midlife Medicine series by Amorette Anderson.
This was definitely a cover buy. (I didn’t actually buy it since I subscribed to Kindle Unlimited last week.) But I am so glad I picked it up. This was a fun read. Grace loses her current nursing job and gets a mysterious note to come for a job interview in Covenstead. Turns out everyone is magical in this town and some sort of witch. There are a quite a number of covens here. Grace is given the job of nurse to a doctor who does magical surgery. And her secondary job is that of a sleuth, or the town detective.
This is a 3-book series so far and I hope the author continues with it because I am totally hooked.
Basic premise: Someone is hypnotizing the animals and one of these animals has killed a person. So, as the new town sleuth, Grace must find out who is bewitching the animals and discover who the true killer is.
I love the community here and I enjoy all the magic stuff. The mystery is nice and keeps my attention but it is really the people here who will keep me coming back for more.
Loved so much about it. If you like magical cozy mysteries, definitely check this one out. You won’t be disappointed.
