Cupcakes, romance, and lovable canines abound in Heather and Sinead’s next adventure, but it isn’t all fun and games. The girlfriends are investigating a very personal kidnapping, and the threatening notes left behind accuse Sinéad and her punk-rocker twin brother of hiding something.
But after solving their first mystery together last Christmas, this one should be a piece of cake. After all, no one’s been murdered this time, and their witch-sorcerer rivalry is a thing of the past. Except it turns out there is a murderer, and a jewel thief as well, and why on earth does everyone keep talking about bees?
It appears Starford is a lot more exciting than Heather’s home town of Old Wetchhaven, and Sinéad’s insistence that Heather move in with her brings a whiff of trouble to their private paradise. Can Heather adjust to life near the big city? Or will the mounting secrets prove too much and turn their second case into their last?
A Hive of Secrets and Spells is a witch cozy mystery with a sweet lesbian romance and heart-warming magic.
Cover – I love cozy mystery covers ..the colour the art style is so cool
If you know cozy mysteries and love them this series is amazing!
It follows a witch and a sorcerer and a fun whodunit style plot, I love the Very hands on magic and how the magic system works in this book I have never read anything like it.
It’s very light in the female romance department but it really really works. My only real complaint is the name cian and how long it took me to figure out how to pronounce it.
Such a sweet read and sweet characters.
