Unable to bake any better than she can magic, Harper Dade, in the aftermath of a divorce and the theft of her inheritance, returns to Willow Hollow, Tennessee, where she joins her aunt at the Taste of Magic Bakery.
Suffering a sudden surge of wishcraft that encourages her to become an amateur sleuth, Harper and her newfound familiar search for evidence surrounding the cupcake creation class gone wrong. Together they delve into the murder of an obnoxious ghost tour guide not quite ready to move on.
When the investigation goes awry and the local mechanic—who’s not just a wizard with car engines but an actual wizard—seems interested in her, she struggles to squelch her overwhelming urge to look for clues.
Yet, there’s no turning back when the potential killer targets her and the local shifter newshound, with the full moon on the horizon.
With the help of her black cat familiar Bub, her newly surfacing witchiness, and the quirky citizens of the magically imbued tourist town, Harper’s return to Willow Hollow turns into a recipe for disaster.
When a contest judge takes an eternal nap in the middle of the pie entries, fledgling witch Harper Dade discovers working at the Taste of Magic Bakery and living in Willow Hollow, Tennessee, can be murder.
With more than the success of the Springtime Magic Fair and the town’s businesses on the line, the local bear shifter sheriff considers her Aunt CeeCee a prime suspect in the pie contest judge’s murder.
As Harper delves into clues and stirs the ire of local witches, she unearths conspiracies better left buried. She’s left with a curse, a newfound friendship with a sasquatch and Bub, her familiar. Despite her attempt to play amateur sleuth and Bub’s helpful hints, Harper fears she doesn’t have a ghost of a chance to solve the mystery.
A defective witch, Harper struggles to face the truth about her heritage and deal with a possible romance with a wizard, but still can’t cast a successful spell or bake an edible pie.
Yet she must, for the sake of Willow Hollow, make sure a murderer gets their just desserts.
The local sheriff stands accused of murder. Since a not-so-witchy witch is forced to investigate, with the help of a familiar named Bub, trouble can’t be far behind.
With the local bear of a sheriff blamed for killing his former boss, Harper Dade sets out to solve the decades-old murder. Suspects abound, then a key suspect goes missing.
Under the watchful glare of the interim sheriff, Harper struggles to right the skewed magic suddenly invading East Tennessee.
Residual hauntings, ghosts, and conspiracies overtake the place where Harper had hoped to live a simple life. But she’s fast discovering there’s no such thing when it comes to the Witches of Taste of Magic Bakery.
Dollars to donuts, the odds are against her. And, like sprinkles on top, a bad case of wrong-way magic, murder and mystery await.
A long-awaited Taste of Magic Bakery catered wedding approaches. A happy event until a witchy amateur sleuth discovers the best man face-planted in the groom’s cake.
With Harper’s best friend’s fiancé a possible target as well, the wedding’s on hold as the local newspaperman goes on the run.
But the would-be groom holds on to his secrets like a dog—or a werewolf—guarding a bone. Thwarted at every turn, Harper struggles to come to terms with her past when her lowlife ex invades Willow Hollow, threatening her budding romance with the town’s mechanic slash wizard.
Bub eavesdrops, sneaks and creeps to find evidence, but since it’s the full moon, there’s a newcomer vampire added to the suspect list.
As the time for the ceremony fast closes in, and both the bride and groom go missing, unless Harper and Bub solve the murder before the wedding cake goes stale, there may never be a magical happily ever after.
Willow Hollow faces its greatest challenge as a semi-reluctant witch’s past and a murder victim return to haunt her.
Which isn’t surprising since a side effect of a lingering curse causes Harper Dade to manifest ghosts. But the current threat to the East Tennessee town’s existence brings a cauldron full of danger and is very much alive.
At the end of the trail of ganache-smeared footprints, the victim is not. As she readies to cater a holiday event, Harper discovers her ex-husband’s body and stands accused of his murder.
The house her ex-husband rented holds secrets even the local witches question. As the Hocus Pocus Holiday Gala approaches, a woman claiming to be involved with Harper’s ex-husband and a local ghost uprising cause confusion and mayhem.
If she can’t solve the mystery of her ex-husband’s murder soon, Harper may be forced to leave her familiar Bub, the Taste of Magic Bakery, those she cares about and her wizard almost-boyfriend behind.
