The International Butter Festival has come to town! When Harlow Torrent, part-time journalist and full-time Slip witch stumbles upon a dead body, frozen and drained of blood, she's pulled into a murder mystery.
Someone has murdered one of the Butter Festival competitors. Was it Zero Bend, punk sculptor extraordinaire with a history of violence? Perhaps Fusion Swan, a sleazy agent playing the publicity game when his clients meet their untimely end?
Between trying to run her struggling online newspaper, dealing with her highly caffeinated cousins Molly and Luce, fending off three meddling witch mothers who will do anything to get their daughters married off (including drugging food with magic potions) and great Aunt Cass who appears to be running an underground laboratory of some kind, Harlow barely has time to breathe, let alone solve a murder.
Romance certainly isn't on the cards either but the hot scruffy guy new to town seems to have other ideas....
I love Natalie Duke’s narration. She made each and every character have a distinct voice that never overpowered anyone else. I’ll listen to any other audiobook with her voice!
The book itself was rxactly what I had been craving.
I wanted a cozy murder mystery about witches, and that’s exactly what I got. Very thankful that I found this, and I will continue to read the next few books and hopefully each one is better than the last thank you Tess Lake you just gained a fan!
