"It's nice to meet you, Mr…er, stage, screen, and Japanese film star, but party…and thirty-two years, actually almost thirty-three now. And um, stuff…to do… So, talk later. I mean, you and me. M'kay? Gotta go."

Ebenezer Falls, sleepy fishing village or murder central? The game's afoot in Dewitched from USA Today bestselling cozy mystery author Dakota Cassidy as Stevie, the powerless witch (or is she?), her bat familiar Belfry, and resident British ghost spy Winterbottom, hunt for a killer. Book 3 of the Witchless In Seattle Mysteries is a thrilling whodunit, and this time, it's personal!

I, ex-witch Stevie Cartwright, do hereby solemnly swear to avoid future murder-mystery shenanigans, nosiness, tomfoolery, and any further crazy killer inflicted pain to my person, so help me goddess…

Hah! Like I could help myself? But after busting my butt (literally!) on the last murder case in my beloved hometown of Ebenezer Falls, WA, I could use a nice long break. I was determined to take the time to enjoy the company of my bat familiar, Belfry; my British ex-spy ghost, Win; our adorable St. Bernard rescue, Whiskey; and of course our gorgeous home, Mayhem Manor, freshly and lovingly renovated.

Until shazam—a dead man invites himself to our fancy housewarming party! When my mother's husband number five ends up deep-sixed in my parlor, it's not like I can't NOT try to solve this mystery, right? Especially if I ever want Mom to leave so I can get back to my semi-peaceful existence.

But our work is definitely cut out for us this time. With Belfry's rascally bat family visiting and the two hundred or so guests, acrobats, mimes, cooks, catering staff, orchestra members—and a surprise guest who throws me for a loop in the house—suspects sure aren't a problem.

Looks like it's time for another spirit-filled, witchless adventure in Ebenezer Falls!

This cozy mystery has a complete cast of oddball characters from witches to ghosts and bats to psychics. Witchless In Seattle Mysteries is a spin-off of Dakota Cassidy's bestselling paranormal romance series, A Paris, Texas Romance.


Dewitched is a smashing good read!  It starts out with a bang and the fireworks just continue throughout the book.  There was non-stop action and sleuthing on Stevie’s part.  She is accompanied by her ghost spy, Win, as she tries to solve the murder before another innocent is sent to jail.  The reader is treated to plenty of surprises in this third book of the series.  

Readers finally get to meet Stevie’s mom the illustrious and illusive Dita Cartwright.  Dita’s part in this plot adds spark and controversy galore.  Belfry’s family drops in for a visit and adds to the chaos that is Mayhem Manor. 

This is a not to be missed addition to the Witchless in Seattle series.  The story can be read as a standalone, but you will get more out of the adventure if you have read the previous books.  Dewitched also adds to the series and builds up to the next book.    

Dakota Cassidy does a wonderful job of creating fun characters in a story tied together with humor and adventure that will have you glued to the pages.
