Now that Win is up and about, he’s been a very busy bee. He’s jumped in with both feet, getting involved in our community and living his best life now that he’s unencumbered by his spy past. He even joined the Ebenezer Falls garden club and made all the female member’s toes curl with his British charm.

On a flower scouting trip for the garden club’s annual spring planting in the town square, while Win is ogling lavender bushes and pansies, I fall head first into a pile of soil where a body’s buried.

Not just any body either. It’s the body of the husband of a close acquaintance of mine—a close acquaintance who just happens to own the nursery and the pile of dirt I fall into head first.

When he begs me to investigate, there’s no way I’m going to turn him down, but there are obstacles to overcome.

For instance, the love of my life. My International Man of Mystery, who keeps stepping on my investigative toes. It’s proving to be an adjustment solving a mystery with us working in the same space. Add in Dana, who’s gone ‘round the bend, my sudden and unexplained investigative (not to mention ridiculous) possessiveness and everything’s all topsy-turvy.

But there’s a vicious killer on the loose and as we unravel whodunnit, I’m hoping our relationship doesn’t unravel, too…


Wow, that was one messed up murder mystery! Crazy bigoted parents, gay son, daughter that inherits the family business, add in a little witch detective and you have one interesting story that’s a page turner.

Witch Perfect starts where Witch It Real Good left off. Loved seeing the human emotions come out in Win and Stevie during the murder investigation and their everyday life. They are both dealing with different issues and trying to mesh their lives together as a couple while also trying to fit into the community. Their difficulties made them seem more real, and I enjoyed their communication efforts.

Great story and the ending left room for a new beginning. Look forward to seeing where the series will go from here.

I received an ARC for an honest review.
