Wanted: Missing Witches… Alive or Dead. Preferably alive.
The witches of Sweetland Cove are going missing at an alarming rate! And Ava Fortune has her hands full trying to find the kidnapper.
It began with the Snow Queen dance.
But … when Lucy Lockwood disappeared right in front of everyone’s eyes, rumors began to circulate fast.
This time, it’s not Ava on the receiving end of the Sweetland Cove gossip mill.
Not ‘Ava The Witch Trouble’. Not this time.
She’s safe and so is the Mystic Cupcake.
When a second witch goes missing and another person is dead,
Ava’s friend gets accused of the crime.
Well, a vampire friend, to be exact.
She needs to set things straight.
“Vampires are people too, after all.”
Hexes and curses can’t make people vanish out of nowhere.
Something else must be going on…
Ava has the feeling she knows what it is, but how can she make the people of Sweetland listen to her?
Can Ava stop the kidnappings before they turn to another murder… or is it already too late?
About the Author:
It was from reading Agatha Christie’s mystery books that inspired Zoe to write cozy mystery novels. Zoe liked the fact that cozy mysteries are able to offer readers a form of escapism that typical detective stories can’t.
Like what Marilyn Stasio, who has been the Crime columnist forThe New York TimesBook Review since the late 1980s, recently wrote: “The abiding appeal of the cozy mystery owes a lot to our collective memory, true or false, of simpler, sweeter times.” It is Zoe’s desire that her writings will evoke that nostalgic memory in all of us; those memories of the good old days.
What sets Zoe apart in her writings is her fusing of Mystery with Paranormal elements, a combination which will bring about fantasies that are intriguing and engaging. Her stories contain unexpected twists and sometimes light-hearted moments that will make one smile at Zoe’s quirkiness, fun and wittiness in her writings.
