The Goodbye Witch...Oh The Feels!

I have waited months for The Goodbye Witch by Heather Blake to come out and I just reluctantly finished it last night. Reluctantly because I was not ready to leave the Enchanted Village and all it's Residents.
Truth be told I only started this book Thursday and on Saturday night I closed the book, tears and tissues were required...
I put the kids to bed and tried to get a few quiet minutes of reading to myself on Thursday night and my cat Squirrel was snoring so loud I could barely concentrate, I should have video taped it instead of doing the selfie of us!
I have read all of four of the books in the Wishcraft Mystery series and this one had me crying, sobbing and laughing out loud. There is part of me that wants to travel to the Enchanted Village and open my own tea shop and serve Dacry, her family and friends daily just so I can keep up on the town gossip and news. I know that if you pick up this series many of you are going to want to join me and I will save you a table and put the kettle on. Thank you Heather Blake for this wonderful series and for making me fall in love with this magical little town.

A Killing Notion~ "Sew" Worth The Wait!

Well I have drank countless pots of tea since I have last posted here and finished two cozy mysteries in the last week. Today I want to share with you my review of A Killing Notion by Melisa Bourbon. 
I first found this series on a "spin the rack" moment at my local library and quickly fell in love with the series. Hooked on the first chapter, Harlow Jane Cassidy is a fabulous main character, self deprecating at times but really grows through out the series, surrounded by her wonderful and eclectic family members, she begins to put back down her roots in her home town of Bliss and starts Buttons and Bow's a Magical Dress Shop in her Me-maw's home.
This is the 5th book in the Magical Dressmaking Mystery series and one of my favorites. I loved the plot, characters and premiss of this book. I learned about the fascinating custom  of  home coming  "Mums", I found myself Google-ing to see images of these fun handmade accessories.

I loved how the story unfolded and the introduction of a few characters I hope will stick around and return in upcoming books!

 If you are someone who loves cozy mysteries, sewing and appreciate a strong and un conventional family you should pick up this series and enjoy each and every stitch  of these cleverly crafted mysteries. A Killing Notion is a fun book and The Magical Dressmaking Mystery series is one you are sure to enjoy.
