Robin was adopted and never wanted to know her birth parents--her adoptive parents were that good! After they died she was at odds--a job she hated--internet dating was not working for her. Then she thought somrone had broken in to her small apartment. Turns out it was a raccoon--but there was also a letter on her table. It seems her birth mother had died and left a bakery to her. With nothing to lose--off she went to meet this family she never knew she had and to attempt to operate a bakery.

She now has a cat who talks and reads--2 wonderful cousins, an Aunt who is wonderful--a grandmother who is a bit unusual and powers she never knew she had--but she is learning!

A miserable man tried to pick her up in the diner where she was eating--and he suddenly dropped dead. Half the people in the town thought she did it--she had to try to exonerate herself and find the killer with her cousins help of course so her bakery would be a success.

About the Book: (from Amazon)

Welcome to Spellford Cove, where the baking is sweet and the witches are wild.

Robin Carter's life is less than stellar. All she has going for her are a minimum-wage job she hates, an uncanny ability to attract the biggest losers on her dating app, and a raccoon sitting in her kitchen sink eating her chips. So, when she finds out she's inherited a bakery in a small Washington town, Robin thinks this might just be the fresh start she desperately needs. Upon her arrival, however, Robin finds out she's inherited more than just a small business: she's also got her mother's magical powers.

However, things start going south for Robin when a man dies at the local diner just after her arrival in town and she's fingered as the prime suspect. With half the town thinking she's a killer, Robin decides to take matters into her own hands. But between a ghost who desperately needs therapy, a snarky familiar who loves to quote literature, and a grandmother who walks to the beat of her own drum, Robin really has her hands full.

Will she be able to navigate this new reality and find the killer, or will she crumble like an overcooked brownie?

This is the first book in the Spellford Cove paranormal cozy mystery series.
