Publisher Description

Welcome to Everlasting, Maine, where there's no such thing as normal.

Anna Crawford is well aware her town is filled with supernaturals, but she isn't exactly willing to embrace her paranormal gifts. Her aunt says she's a witch-in-denial. All Anna wants is to live a quiet "normal" life and run her business, Witch's Brew Coffee Shop and Bakery. But everything is about to be turned upside down the moment Jackson Argent walks into her life.

Jackson isn't sure why he agreed to come back to his boyhood home of Everlasting. It's like a spell was cast and he couldn't say no. Covering the Cranberry Festival isn't exactly the hard-hitting news this reporter is used to. But when a local death is ruled an accident, and the police aren't interested in investigating, he takes it upon himself to get to the bottom of the mystery. To do that, he'll need to enlist the help of the beautiful coffee shop owner.

It soon becomes apparent things are not what they seem and more than coffee is brewing in Everlasting.

Goddess of Chaos ,

“People revealed so much when they thought no one was looking.”

Jackson is a reporter who has been sent to cover the strange happenings in a small town. What his editor doesn't realize is Jackson is pretty sure no one would believe the truth if he reported it.

Anna is a busy woman, she runs her own business, has a hilarious Aunt -- who happens to be a witch, that keeps her on her toes, and can't resist doing what her heart assures her is right.

This done in one stand alone book is a page turner whodunit as Jackson tries to find a story he can publish, and Anna learns to accept a part of herself she has long denied. Each of them has fears, and concerns, born of childhood experiences, that they discover I just a portion of the truth, and themselves.

Good addition to this series

I've enjoyed this series so far, and this book is no exception. This is the third book in the Happily Everlasting series, a set of cozy paranormal mysteries, each written by a different author with the same town and many of the same characters in common. The town is full of supernaturals who try to shield who they are from the outside world. This book centers around Anna Crawford; 'witch-in-denial', owner of a coffee shop and bakery called the Witch's Brew, her Aunt Polly (loved Polly!) and an investigative reporter, Jackson Argent. mysteriously assigned to cover the towns annual, month-long cranberry festival. The story is good, the characters are likeable, and now I really want a cup of coffee and some cranberry orange scones! If you like stories with paranormal themes, humor, well-done characters and a good mystery, you'll enjoy this book.

Magic, Mischief and Murder?

Another fun book in Everlasting, Maine! Jackson Argent is a journalist that is in Everlasting to cover the annual Cranberry Festival for his boss. He was told to hire a photographer named Anna Crawford to take pictures for him.

Anna Crawford is a witch in denial that owns and runs the Witche’s Brew Coffee and Bakery Shop. The annual cranberry festival is her busiest time of the year and she counts on the income to get her through the lean months. The last thing she has time to do is take photographs for some journalist. All that changes when her friend George is murdered, although the local police detective declares it a natural death five seconds into his investigation. Jackson is convinced George was murdered and Anna is just the person to help him figure it out. With a little help from her crazy Aunt Poly, what could possibly go wrong??

A great book, you will laugh your way through this one!
