Cookies and Curses

Cookies and Curses

Matchmaking, baking and ghosts... a recipe for disaster or a spell for success?

I've never been wrong with cookies or love, and it's made my bakery popular in my small town. Rumors claim my matchmaking skills come from a dash of magic in my treats, but I can ignore the gossip about me being a witch.

But ghosts only I can see suddenly needing my help? That was never a part of my business plan, and solving their problems might be more than I can handle.

If I can’t figure out the mystery of why they’re coming between the couples I've connected, then not only will my matches not get their happily ever afters but failing could conjure the end of my livelihood too. I can't let the cookie crumble on my career.

Ghosts, it's time to meet your baker.

Cookies and Curses is the first novel in the witchy Mixing Up Magic series, set in the fictional cozy town of Heartwood Hollow, Maine. It’s a delicious read with tasty treats, quirky characters, one sassy calico cat, and a smorgasbord of supernatural secrets to uncover.

Pets & Parolees

Pets & Parolees

It’s a sad day when I’m the Magical Corrections System’s best shot at bringing down a corrupt magic user who’s determined to sell his power to the highest bidder.

Yeah, my former con-man ways are turning into quite the asset for MCS, not that I ever get any thanks around here. They are, however, letting up on my leash a little to aid me in going undercover. Of course, as a tradeoff they’ve saddled me with a slobbery new chaperone.

I’ve only just gotten used to working with the girls, and now they stick me with a mangy dog shifter, who—like me—is stuck in his fur for the moment.

But you already knew I wasn’t a real cat, right?

I just look and act… and yeah, I smell like one, too. Not for much longer, though. Because if I can crack this case in record time, they just might reward me with my freedom. All I can say to that is FINALLY!

Secrets of the Specter

Secrets of the Specter

I’m Mags McAllister, and I am an honest-to-goodness modern-day candlestick maker. I work in my family’s shop in the historic district of Larkhaven, Georgia, and also make a pretty penny from sharing videos of my process online.

My life is simple, quiet, and all mine… until a white cat with mismatched eyes shows up outside my shop and refuses to leave. When I take him home, things get really weird. As in, I can now see things and people that were never there before.

It gets even freakier when a voiceless spirit introduces herself to me via a handwritten letter. This specter claims that I share her name and will also share her fate if we can’t solve the mystery that’s haunted our town since 1781… and quickly, because she won’t be able to maintain her strength for much longer.

Talk about a cold case! Can I actually find a way to free my eighteenth-century counterpart? Or has my new feline companion just signed my death warrant by opening my eyes to the secret supernatural plane in our otherwise sleepy small town?

Purebreds & Purrjury

Purebreds & Purrjury

Do a good job, and they give you even more work.

I’m not sure why I expected anything different from the goody two-shoes jerks at the Magical Corrections System. So here I am, a once-thief trying to keep these two-leggers on the straight and narrow. Have I mentioned I’m a shifter who’s been sentenced to remain in my cat form until my time is up?

Yeah, I’m a big fluffy cat with zero of my usual magic, but that doesn’t stop me from being the best temp agent the MCS has ever seen. And right now, my partners and I are tailing a mage bent on exposing magic to the world.

The stakes are high. The payout will be next-to-nothing.

If I play my cards right, I just might be able to earn my parole… and the heart of the woman I love, the woman who’s only ever known me as a sweet, little kitty cat. Right now they’ve got me busier than a one-eyed cat watching two mouse holes, but that can’t last forever. Right? RIGHT?!

My Colorful Conundrum

My Colorful Conundrum

Hi, I’m Lisa, and I’m pretty sure I’m losing my grasp on reality.

After getting struck by strange purple lightning, everything I paint now comes to life. I’m the only one who can see or talk to them, though… which begs the question: are they really there?

When my art school mentor turns up dead, everyone is quick to point the finger at me.

But what if I’m not the only one who emerged from that storm with strange new powers? Whether or not I like it, I’ll need to rely on these living “pigments” of my imagination to help crack the case.

The clock is ticking. Can I prove not only my innocence, but also my sanity?

The Merry Messy Mummy

The Merry Messy Mummy

Every time my best friend Hazel and I try to transition out of cleaning other people's homes and into anything else, we end up cleaning up a crime scene in our sleepy hometown of Cooper's Cove, Maine.

Our latest job sounds perfect—preparing the inside of an old lighthouse for the town's Festival of Lights. Before we can scrub the place spic and span, we're face-to-face with a mummified murder victim in the lighthouse's basement!

When a local paranormal investigation group jumps at the chance to connect with the dearly departed, a member of their team goes missing, leaving no shortages of suspects. Adding insult to injury, all clues suggest that her disappearance is tied to the mummy. Go figure.

As the clock strikes down to the festival's opening day, Hazel and I dust off our sleuthing skills and race against her law enforcement brother in a mad dash to see who can solve the mysteries first.

Can we find the person—or persons—behind these crimes before it's lights out for us?

Paws & Probable Cause

Paws & Probable Cause

My name is Moss O’Malley, and I’ve just been sentenced to three years in the magical corrections system. Thanks to my thieving ways—or rather the fact I got caught—I have to live the next three years as a cat, unable to shift back to my human form or use magic of any kind.

Just when I think I’m about to lose my mind for good, an agent breaks me free on the condition I’ll help with one of her cases. So now I must serve and protect, using my criminal wiles to catch others doing the same kinds of things that got me locked up in the first place.

It beats languishing at the cat rescue—sure—but will I be able to catch the super-powered bad guys without having any powers of my own to call on?

Hexed Hair Day

Hexed Hair Day

This beauty witch has to rescue herself when her hometown gets a close shave with a Scrooge of a thief.

When it comes to hair, my long, silky mane of fairytale renown is the envy of every woman in town. These lovely locks aren't only for looks—they're also the source of my beauty magick!

Unlike another long-haired princess trapped in a turret, the only tower I'm hiding in is one of my own makings. An unprincely royal broke my heart during a Christmas Eve past and left my emotions in a tangled mess.

When a thief steals the angel topper from our town’s Christmas wishing tree, I'm forced out of my holiday funk to ferret out the bandit. Soon I get an unwanted fringe benefit—the return of the pompous prince, and he's determined to help.

No potion or spell will heal my heart, (believe me, I’ve tried), but perhaps working side-by-side with him will. Can I leave my comfort zone and comb the town for the tree's lost topper and the person who took it? Or will my hair tie me—and my prince—up in a fatal end?

Merlin Kills a Zombie

Merlin Kills a Zombie

When my cat brought me a dead bird as a present, I cringed.

When that dead bird suddenly flitted back to life, I screamed.

At first, I shrugged it off as one of the random things that happens when your roommate is a magical cat, but then it kept happening.

Turns out a familiar foe is creating an army of undead creatures with the goal of forcing us to surrender. But Merlin and I refuse to let dark magic prevail—not when the entire existence of magic is now at stake.

And if magic dies, so too will all who wield it.

Oh no, my cat will NOT become a casualty in this unholy war. I’m ready to fight my way through a million zombies and then take out the big bad, too. Nothing can come between this witchy cat and his familiar—and I’m ready to prove it.
