Publisher's Summary

To stay out of jail, this snarky psychic must uncover a werewolf's killer. Does she stand a ghost of a chance?

Nora never believed in ghosts until one popped up asking for her help. And she never believed in witches...until she discovered she was one.

Now trapped in the quaint supernatural town of Eastwind, she must learn the ins and outs of her powers before she gets herself killed.

When she stumbles on a murder in the greasy kitchen of an all-night diner, all wands point to Nora the newcomer as the prime suspect.

With the help of her bacon-obsessed canine familiar, a too-hot-to-be-true waiter, and the spirit of the deceased, Nora's only chance at clearing her name is to serve up the real killer on a silver platter. Is justice on the menu or will the guilty party dine and dash?

Confusing

The worldbuilding in this was very confusing. Is Nora only dead in “our” world, but is alive in this new one? Is everyone in this new world dead, like some kind of limbo/purgatory/way station? It seemed like everyone was dead, but if that’s the case, how are people getting murdered? Seems like it would be hard to die if you’re already dead. And if getting killed in Eastwind means you officially cross over, is crossing over a thing people want? Avoid? The lack of explanation about most of the worldbuilding proved to be more distracting than intriguing.

At times it was refreshing that Nora was unfazed by the weirdness happening around her, but she essentially had no reaction to anything. There’s taking things in stride, and then there’s avoiding emotion entirely. The only thing she felt that was described in any great detail was how attractive everyone was.

This was mostly a cozy, but it was a bit racier than your average cozy. The mystery wasn’t that compelling. Since Nora is new to town, she didn’t know anyone. She just bounced from person to person asking questions based on suggestions from the last person she talked to. Despite being new, everyone was fairly open with sharing information with her, so there wasn’t a ton of conflict.

It was an enjoyable enough book to pass the time, but I’m unsure if I’ll read any more.

Cute

This is an easy cozy mystery with witches/werewolves/grims and other "supernatural" creatures. If that's something you read, you'll really like this book. It's not too long, and it's a fun read.
I'll be reading more in this series.

Likeable, fun side paranormal characters

I’m actually writing this to the author. When something dramatic & life changing happens early on, it would have been easy to let the main character wallow, whine, spend time being angsty. You managed to stay off that bus. She doesn’t ignore her sudden change in circumstances but responds with eye rolls, snark, & a certain amount of skepticism. She isn’t certain but not insecure about her own perceptions... she knows she is resilent, knows she will understand more as time progresses and accepts her new circumstances with growing curiousity & actually enjoys the transition with wonder, courage & a bit of whimsy.

The mystery was so-so but I loved Nora’s new world, full of characters, animals, & species which I hope make it into future books.

I tend to read the next one. Popcorn books like this can be insipid or can be amazing. Like old films with Cary Grant or Irene Dunn, light hearted journeys with staying power are almost impossible to create but, to me, are a kind of perfection. Janet Evanovich created the Stephanie Plum series. She didn’t really get it right until book 5 and then they are, although ridiculous, amazing through book 12. (We won’t talk about book 9.) I really have hopes for this character & this series.

Fantastic listen.

Very entertaining seres debut, Nora is a very well rounded amateur sleuth.
Highly recommend this series.the supporting characters are all very engaging and don’t bring the story down, like can be sometimes found in other books.
Rebecca Mitchell did an awesome job bringing this book to life.
Downloading and starting book two as soon as I’m done with this review.

Delightful

This is exactly the type of book I not only love but I feel compelled to write a recommendation since I listen to sooo many books on tape and generally like what I pick or return lately. I’m getting next installment right now and would even get Kendal versions if tape not available

Takes a bit of getting into

The first chapter was almost completely unnecessary, could have been summed up with a paragraph. Fantastic ideas though, as a "who dunit" 100% here for it. would recommend but with a warning.
