Murder, cupcakes, and witches… it’s just your average day in Sweetland Cove.
Things are always going wrong for Ava Fortune.
Ever since she discovered she was a witch, it seems like people are trying to kill her.
And… New Year’s is no exception.
When a woman is found murdered in her aunts’ bakery, a terrible curse is uncovered, with Ava at the center of it.
This time, at least, she’s not a suspect.
Everyone in town knows who the killer is. Even Detective Colt Hudson thinks Ava’s innocent.
Polly Peacock broke out of prison for one reason only:
to kill Ava Fortune. Not just kill–sacrifice.
That’s the only way that Polly can get her witchy powers back.
Except it’s not just Ava she has to kill.
There are five names on her list.
Ava and Colt used to be enemies; she never thought they’d be friends.
With things between her and her boyfriend, Damon, as rocky as ever, Ava starts to think that Colt is interested in more than just paranormal security.
But does she feel the same?
Can Ava stop Polly from committing her terrible crimes before it’s too late or will the curse shared by Ava and her ancestors come back to stop her?
There’s never a dull day in Sweetland Cove.
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.
