Hearth Baked: A Cozy Culinary Murder Mystery (#3) by Shawn McGuire
“Someone’s going to kill that woman,” Ruby McLaughlin predicted.
Normally, the scent of cookies, scones, and waffle cones fills the air around Whispering Pines’ bake shop, but kitchen witches Sugar and Honey Graham have mysteriously lost their touch. Sugar’s pastries won’t bake properly, and Honey’s ice cream tastes awful.
Certain they’ve been cursed, the sisters turn to their coven’s high priestess, Reeva Long, for help.
Reeva, however, is busier than ever with her own shop this season. Add a crabby teenage tenant, a moody best friend, and a new boyfriend—er, manfriend?—and Reeva’s plate is not only full, it’s overflowing. How can she possibly squeeze in more?
But when a tourist is found dead and a villager is accused of murder, Reeva knows the village has bigger problems than icky ice cream. It’s time for Long & McLaughlin Private Investigators (aka Reeva and Ruby) to put their sleuthing skills into action and catch the real killer.
If you like your witchy mysteries on the cozy side with plenty of quirky characters, and a dash of paranormal, you’ll love the Hearth & Cauldron Mysteries series.
