Monday, September 24, 2018

This is the first book by H.Y. Hanna I have read. It will not be the last. I will certainly be getting the rest of this series. What a delightful story!

Caitlyn decides to try and learn about her birth parents and ventures off to a tiny English village to hopefully discover her background, against the advice of her best friend. Upon arriving she finds there is no room at the only inn. She is sent to inquire at and takes a room above a chocolate shop. This shop is owned and operated by a local witch!

She meets all sorts of unusual characters-including a toothless vampire who insists he is there to protect her. Meanwhile a murder has been committed and Caitlyn is bound and determined to figure out who did it.

Does she find her lost relatives? What else does she find out? Be sure to pick up this fast reading book--and drool over the descriptions of the chocolate!!

"A cozy mystery with the perfect blend of magic and mayhem. This series has me completely bewitched!"

Caitlyn's world changes when she learns that she was found as an abandoned baby and adopted by her American family.

Soon Caitlyn finds herself fending off a toothless old vampire, rescuing an adorable kitten and meeting handsome aristocrat Lord James Fitzroy... not to mention discovering that she herself might have magical blood in her veins!

When she's dragged into the murder investigation and realizes that dark magic is involved, Caitlyn is forced to choose. Can she embrace her witchy powers in time to solve the mystery and save those she loves?
