Different Kind of Witch/Vampire

Read this interesting book about witches, vampires and werewolves of a sort. In this story you will meet Pepper/ Valkyrie who goes to stay with some Aunts to help them with their bed and breakfast business. You will meet some interesting people and right off there is a murder. As Pepper is greeting her aunts and Lucas O’Callaghan is standing in the foyer a body comes crashing through the stain glass ceiling. Right off you have murder and the action is beginning.
There are secrets the aunts are hiding and you will find there is a burglar running around. The plot twists will keep you busy and the biggest is finding out that Pepper is a vampire and not the usual cut of the mill vampire. You have a new kind of wine which the vampires really like and even a black cat.
I think you will enjoy this book as much as I did.

Witches' Brew

💗😻Loved it! Very entertaining! Read it all in one sitting! Loved the characters and plot. It's well-written, easy-flowing, an enjoyable read.

Pepper is the perfect main persona, and the aunts are my kind of people! (I'm don't mean I'm a witch-friends and relatives might disagree-but I love them!)

Lucas seems to be a good match for Pepper and I can hardly wait to find out the cat's 🙀name-if she 😼 ever tells them what it is!
