One handsome-yet-gruff policeman who has her heart racing faster than a boiling kettle.

Between juggling her mother's café, her magical training, and the eccentric residents of the village, Evelyn's got her hands full.

Sample text:

It started with a murder, as you would expect.

But before that, some magic. Pick a card, any card…

Senior witch Marilyn Eldritch sat at her favourite table in Magic Cakes Café, and drew a tarot card from her ancient deck. She laid down Death.

Oh no! Someone was going to die tonight! An ominous thunderclap rumbled overhead. Trying to still her nerves, Marilyn poured her favourite tipple into her coffee. As her mother Joanie always said: For a long life and a body frisky, forget the milk and add the whisky.

Marilyn sipped her Irish coffee, steeled herself, then laid down the next two tarot cards. 

The Empress and the Page of Cups. Motherhood and children…

And Death?

She stared at the tarot cards. Perhaps this was an oblique reference to Leia, her young apprentice. Leia had left Marilyn’s sacred spell book lying around on the counter in front of a human customer earlier, and Marilyn planned to have a word with her about it tomorrow. But obviously she didn’t plan to kill her over it.

She added another dash of whisky to her coffee and took a gulp.
