be my banshee
by Joyce and Jim Lavene

I loved, loved this book, the story, the characters. I couldn’t out it down once I started reading. This is a great start to a new series.
~Tea and A Book

I think this is going to be an interesting series! It is more on the fantasy side with witches, werewolves, shape shifters and the like.
~Storeybook Reviews

The best way to describe this book is paranormal meets cozy mystery. You get the best of both worlds with this one.
~Socrates’ Book Reviews…

I love this book. The cast of characters are incredible and the story line so well written you will be instantly caught up in what is going on and you won’t be able to take your eyes of the pages.
~Shelley’s Book Case​

I fell completely under the spell of Sunshine Merryweather. She is a breath of fresh air! So sassy! She reminded me of myself, to be perfectly honest.
~Bubby at Bubble Bath Books

I was intrigued right away by the title and then the description. I love cozies with a paranormal element, and this fit the bill.
~Brooke Blogs

And once again, these authors kept me hostage as their characters came to life on the pages.
~fuonlyknew – Laura’s Ramblins and Reviews

Another 5 plus star read from the Lavene team.
~Laura’s Interests

Be My Banshee is a delightful cozy mystery with a fun cast of characters that are sure to entertain.

Sunshine Merryweather is a young witch with a passion for colorful clothes and good food. She is the owner/operator of the Purple Door Detective Agency. Her partner, John, was brutally murdered three days ago, and she won’t stop until she finds his killer.

Aine is only interested in one thing when she walks into the building with the purple door–locating the last man alive in the branch of the O’Neill family she haunts as a beane sidhe. She has been asleep for 200 years in a ruined Irish castle and realizes that the world has moved on without her. She needs to find the O’Neill heir and encourage him to start a family or she will pass from existence when he dies.

Sunshine sees a potential partner when she looks at the powerful beane sidhe – they could be the next Dynamic Duo! But Aine isn’t interested in Sunshine’s schemes – until the witch agrees to help her locate O’Neill. Even then, it will be a short-term association at best from Aine’s point of view. She has no need of witchcraft.

Neither woman is aware of the danger they face as an ancient assassin stalks the old port city of Norfolk, Virginia. It will take more than simple witchcraft or beane sidhe magic to stop the killer. They will have to work together and combine their talents.

But can Sunshine and Aine put aside their differences to stop the murders without tearing each other apart?
