Book Review-A Hiss-tory of Magic (A Wonder Cats Mystery Book #1)-Harper Lin

Monday, August 31, 2015

Modern witches have to be very careful and hide their magical abilities--remember the Salem Witch Trials? Better to hide then to start that up again even if you no longer live in Massachusetts! So this family of witches live a normal life-well mostly. Of course Cath can literally talk to cats through thought transference and the three cats have a lot to say-not to mention having to save their humans from themselves and others and literally solve mysteries for them!

This is a cute cozy mystery and I already have Book 2 so that should tell you how much I enjoyed it.

About the Book: (from Amazon)

From USA TODAY BESTSELLING AUTHOR Harper Lin ***New & Improved Version***Relaunch of the #1 Amazon Bestseller!

Cath Greenstone, her cousin Bea, and her hippie aunt Astrid live in Wonder Falls, a small town near the mystical Niagara Falls. They run the Brew-Ha-Ha café, and naturally, they’re witches hiding in plain sight along with their three magical cats, Treacle, Peanut Butter, and Marshmallow.

When Brew-Ha-Ha's baker is burnt to a crisp, along with their beloved café, Aunt Astrid lets out a big family secret: a powerful spell book, a Greenstone heirloom from the Salem days, has been stolen from its secret hiding spot in the café. If it’s fallen into the wrong hands, black magic could destroy not only Wonder Falls but the world.

A secret society… A new detective with a shady past… A once-bullied local returning to town as a multimillionaire.

Who in town could know Cath’s family secret? Cath, Bea, and Astrid must use their witch powers to uncover the deadly truth. Cath communicates with their cats, also magically inclined, and they help uncover more than one secret lurking in wonderful Wonder Falls.

The first novel in a new cozy mystery series featuring modern-day witches and their magic cats.

I love the mystical content of this book. It lets you get away from reality for a little while.

It's kinda fun that they have to keep their magic under wraps. I imagine that makes for some interesting happenings!

This sounds like the perfect book for me to gift to my aunt as she recovers from surgery. She's a huge cat lover, and I know she'd be thrilled to think of her own with magical powers.

That's a lovely cover! The synopsis sounds interesting, and I'm glad to see it's a new & improved version, as a lot of previous reviews mentioned a lot of spelling errors, which would really bug me. I may give this one a try...
