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.
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.
Loved this book. Love how Anna and Jackson teamed up with the camera to solve the mystery of George’s death. Love how Jackson was honest with Anna about his past and what he could do. Love Aunt Polly as usual.
Fun Paranormal Cozy
Reluctant witch Anna meets investigative journalist Jackson who has supernatural abilities of his own. When Anna’s friend George mysteriously dies during a party and an incompetent deputy declares it an accidental death, Anna and Jackson work together to uncover the truth. A lot of unexpected twists and turns made this a fun read. And Aunt Polly! I love her!
