Summary

Phoebe Winchester’s beloved Aunt Eudora has a taste for adventure—and a knack for making magical tea. It’s even rumored that she just might be a witch. So when Eudora passes away and leaves everything to her niece—her Victorian mansion, her bookshop/tea store The Earl’s Study, and one very chubby orange cat named Bob—Phoebe gets more than she bargained for. And she knows she’s in deep when a dead man is found on the shop’s back step, apparently killed while trying to break in. 

Two suspects immediately emerge among the townspeople of Raven Creek, Washington. There’s village busybody Dierdre Miller, who seems desperate to buy Eudora’s house, and handsome PI Rich, one of Phoebe’s childhood friends—but how well does she really know him after all these years apart? 

Phoebe knows she should leave it to the professionals, but as she starts to dig into the underbelly of Raven Creek, she begins to uncover the truth about Eudora. What’s more, her aunt might not have been the only witch in the family: Phoebe soon discovers she has unique and unexpected gifts of her own. 

Now it’s just a matter of putting her newfound power to the test and cast a spell that could catch a killer...

Magic, Murder, and Much More

Excellent first in series! This one hit all the cozy elements: the small town setting, the inheritance, welcoming citizens who become friends (or enemies), the potential for romance, a somewhat cantankerous pet, a strong female protagonist, and a little magic. Oh, and I mustn't forget murder and secrets. Phoebe is a perfect female lead. She is intelligent, friendly, and though she does some snooping, there are no TSTL moments that make readers cringe. The mysteries, and there are several, are well plotted, and I admit the identity of the murderer came as a surprise. This is a keeper, and I cannot wait for the next visit to Raven Creek.

The narrator also did an excellent job with the voices, including the male characters.

WOW---What a start to a series

Gretchen Rue- Steeped to Death Book 1 of A Witches' Brew Mystery
I was impressed with the storyline, characters, and setting. The story starts------Phoebe Winchester’s is dealing with a divorce and trying to reestablish herself when her beloved Aunt dies, leaving her the family mansion and business. The story will suck you in and take you on a journey from that point.

Excellent --I'm hooked and waiting for more.

Kristin Price, narrator ------applause.
