Trouble in Charming Book Review

Book Review

Over the past year I have really enjoyed getting back into reading and thought I would start sharing some of my favorites with you in the form of mini book reviews. To kick off this new feature on the Sea.lestial.shel blog I decided to share my friends latest venture in her writing career. Many of you know Jennie Blonde as the 'ComfyCozyWitch' on Instagram and she has just announced a new series of Witchy Cozy Mysteries that are sure to transport us all away to the fictional seaside town of Charming, Connecticut. 

A welcome change from the books I've been reading to teach myself something new, Trouble in Charming was a relaxing read with my evening cup of tea. If you like The Good Witch, Practical Magic and talking cats then you will love following along with Primrose (Prim) Thorne on her new life in Charming - which the book refers to as The Salem of Connecticut. Because this is prequel and I'd say no more than a 30 minute read, I don't want to give too much away. Let's just say there is a quaint café where kitchen witchery and magic happens, two aunts that are hiding something, a gift of knowing just what each visitor to the café needs, and a few naysayers in the town that I can't wait to learn more about. 

From a girl who seemed to have lost everything in Virginia to "I'm a witch who has inherited my mother's green and kitchen witch powers. Charming is a town where my family's magic may be known." ... and "It's my destiny to take over my mother's café." It took me about 5 minutes to fall in love with Prim and I know you will too. 

The Cakes and Cauldrons Café Mysteries series will launch in January 2022, but you can get your FREE copy of this delightful prequel now by signing up for Jennie's Cozy Witch Readers Club here. After signing up, you will receive an email with the link to download the prequel to your computer, kindle, or other reading device.
