In this spellbinding continuation of the Kitchen Witch Mystery series by New York Times bestselling author Lynn Cahoon, witchcraft trainee Mia Malone summons tasty dishes and unearthly murder suspects . . .
Before Mia Malone can sip tea at Time for a Cuppa, the charming new shop in Magic Springs, Idaho, her life changes course in downright supernatural ways. First, her blossoming catering business and cooking school get a boost with the addition of an enchanting cake decorator. Then she catches the attention of the tea shop owner herself, local coven member Mahogany Medford, who’s set on immersing Mia in a twisted mystery that appears all but unsolvable without a special kind of help . . .
Still reeling from the recent loss of her mother and believing there was more to the abrupt death, Mahogany urges Mia to cast light on the truth. But old secrets might come back to haunt her in an investigation that demands conjuring up phantoms from the past on the property of Mia’s Morsels. Now, wearing Gran’s protective stone and empowered by a circle of trusted confidants, Mia must reveal who—or what—killed Ms. Medford as another deadly surprise brews!
In this fourth full-length Kitchen Witch Mystery, the business at Mia’s Morsels is booming. More than Mia and Christine can handle so Mia has hired Trent and Levi’s mom Abigail to handle cakes and deserts and hires Hailey Berger to help with an upcoming wedding to see how she fits in with everyone. Gran usually helps too but she has some problems of her own she is trying to handle.
In addition to her business, Mia is approached by the owner of Magic Spring’s new tea shop, Time for a Cuppa’s owner Mahogany Medford. A member of the local coven, who has some questions about her mother’s death and some other strange happenings. There are also some more strange happenings at the school where Mia lives and has her business. Happenings that need to be addressed before the big wedding she was pressed to hold at the school.
Mia is going to need all the protections available and everyone’s help as she tries to get answers for Mahogany and handle everything else going on in her life. Who knew catering a wake for a witch would conjure up so much trouble?
The characters Ms. Cahoon created for this series get stronger in every book. Mia still has a lot to learn but she is surrounded by a great group of witches and mortals. The ease she has with Christina is just wonderful. Both she and Christina’s relationship with the Majors brothers are in a good place. Gran has some craziness going on that had me laughing out loud. Dorian/Mr. Darcy are still working through their issues but we learn some new things in this story. The addition of Abigail and her husband Thomas is a perfect fit with some comical moments as he adjusts to having a wife who works outside the home. All of these characters are so cleverly drawn and engaging. They are some of my favorites.
The author has put forth a complex mystery with a lot of moving parts along with some real-life drama for Mia. All the plots entwine together effortlessly giving the book a really nice flow. With several twists and connections revealed I was totally into the story when we learned who was behind everything but then the story abruptly ended with something to set up the next book in the series I assume. It felt like the author had reached her page limit and left us readers hanging. I seriously flipped back into the book looking for missing pages or missing chapters. I guess I really wanted to know how that big event went after everything that had happened.
Four Charming Spells was a charming captivating cozy right up to the final pages. After reading many books by this author I am sure she will make everything right in the next book. So I am excited to see what magical mystery she has in store for Book #5. The teaser was a great one.
