Christmas Witch List: A Westwick Witches Cozy Mystery by Colleen Cross

A fun, paranormal mystery with witches!

Christmas witch list: a westwick witches cozy mystery

Eat, Drink, and Be Poisoned...

Cendrine West is looking forward to a cozy Christmas Eve dinner when a blizzard blows in, bringing with it a flurry of unexpected guests. But tipsy witches and mischievous magic spell a recipe for disaster, especially when a guest turns up dead. Cen’s sleuthing exposes a Santa-sized sack of trouble and everyone’s a suspect, even her hunky sheriff boyfriend.

Is it a deadly accident by a drunken witch…or something more sinister? Murder is on the menu and only magic can uncover the truth in this witchy, wacky, Yuletide thrill ride!

The Westwick Witches cozy mysteries are for fans of fun, cozy mystery books with a paranormal twist! If you haven’t already read the first 3 books in the series, Witch You Well, Rags to Witches, and Witch and Famous, get them now in a specially priced Westwick Witches Magical Mystery box set.

“Five stars for my favorite combo of magic, mistletoe, and murder!”

"...A bewitching, supernatural treat. If you love witch cozy mysteries you'll love Cendrine West and her wacky witch family!"

"...One of the best paranormal mystery books I've read in awhile. An imaginative detective mystery that combines the best mysteries of an Agatha Christie whodunit novel with a Harry Potter fantasy book, this is magic for grown-ups!"

Christmas Witch List
 

From the author:

Westwick Corners isn't your typical small town. Or even a normal ghost town. It's where people go not to be found, and witches go to work their magic without attracting too much attention. The combination makes from some interesting and humorous mysteries, and the witches are always at the center of the action!

Ruby's cooking, Cendrine's amateur sleuth and investigator activities, and Aunt Pearl's magic school are always looking for that one secret ingredient that will propel the witches to fame and fortune and put the small town of Westwick Corners back on the map again. The witches are forever cooking up new business opportunities like The Westwick Corners Inn, The Witching Post Bar and Grill, and of course, Pearl's Charm School, where witches go to unravel riddles, spin magic spells, and create their own witch mysteries. Too bad they are forever getting distracted because there are always strange things happening in Westwick Corners, from petty crime to murder.

The West family has always been in Westwick Corners and always will be. They descend from a long line of witches who have inhabited Westwick Corners from the beginning.

Witches who unlock mysteries, solve crime, and help those in need. They are collectively a kind of a witch of all trades, because pitching in--or is it witching in-- is what you do in a small town. Everyone helps out. Even Grandma Vi the ghost investigates and sleuths. But when everyone pulls together, it's not always in the same direction!  If you like a good puzzle, a good laugh, and a good witch mystery series, you'll love these cozy mystery books!  Available both as ebook cozy mystery books and cozy mystery paperbacks.

I am writing the next book in this series of paranormal cozy mysteries, a cozy paranormal that takes place on Christmas Eve. As long as people like these humorous cozy mysteries I will keep on writing them. Thanks for reading!

Sample text:

“See, Cen? That’s how you do a proper transport spell.” Aunt Pearl gazed adoringly at Merlinda, completely oblivious to my hypothermia and quite possibly, frostbite.

Merlinda beamed.

“I could have frozen to death.” My memory of the snow globe breakout was hazy. All I remembered was stampeding reindeer and shattered glass. My almost-frostbitten skin was very real, though.

My fingers burned as I gripped my wineglass. I had poured myself a generous glass of merlot before seating myself in the oversized armchair by the fireplace. I gulped it down as I slowly defrosted by the roaring fire. I still had no idea how I had escaped my snow globe prison. Or, for that matter, got back inside the house.

“Some people learn better by doing. Like you, Cendrine.” Aunt Pearl smiled sweetly at me.

Aunt Amber gave me a sympathetic look. “Pearl forgot the last sentence of the spell. I had to help her a little.”

Aunt Pearl rolled her eyes. “Oh, don’t be ridiculous, Amber. I never forget anything. I did it on purpose, to build suspense. All part of the experience.”

I downed the rest of my wine and set the glass down on the side table. I rubbed my hands together in front of the roaring fire. My fingers were still whitish blue, and they hurt like hell. “I think I have frostbite. How could you just leave me outside like that? I could have died.”

Aunt Pearl rolled her eyes. “Geesh, Cen! You’re like a hothouse flower. It’s high time I helped you toughen up a little.”

“You forgot all about me, didn’t you?” I didn’t know which was more alarming: that Aunt Pearl had forgotten me or that she had forgotten a spell. Maybe her age was catching up with her because she seemed a little foggy. A senile witch was no laughing matter.
