Midnight Spells Murder Review and Giveaway

My Review

The Inquisition is over, but witches still have one thing to fear—associating with Zo. Zo is a gift shop owner in Midnight Spells Murder, the second entry in the Happy Camper cozy mystery series. She invites a witch to a book signing to celebrate Halloween. But the witch is soon found dead. And Zo is a prime suspect.

With plenty of suspects, clues and red herrings, this mystery will have you guessing whodunit along with Zo. The setting in rural South Dakota and the slow simmering romance between Zo and handsome Forest Ranger Max just adds to the fun. As I get to know the personable and believable characters in this series, the books just keep getting better. 4 stars for Midnight Spells Murder.

Thanks to Kensington Books, Great Escapes Book Tours, and NetGalley for a copy in exchange for my honest review.

Spirit Canyon’s annual Spirit Spooktacular weekend is on, and for local amateur sleuth Zo Jones, it’s boomtime for business at her Happy Camper gift shop . . . until a murderer drops in for a browse.

To celebrate Halloween at the Happy Camper, Zo schedules a talk by successful author and self-proclaimed witch Marianne Morgan. Although Marianne’s benign brand of witchcraft is more about feminine empowerment than black magic, her presence is still not welcomed by everyone. Then on a midnight stroll home, Zo spots what seems to be a new Halloween decoration propped up outside the Happy Camper. What she finds is not a mannequin but a dead Marianne, her lifeless body dressed in traditional witch’s garb. But why would someone send this good witch back to the spirit world permanently?

Soon Zo realizes that plenty of folks have motives for murdering Marianne. What’s worse, nosy TV newsman Justin Castle plans to broadcast a report associating Marianne’s murder with the Happy Camper. Zo calls on her partner in sleuthing, local forest ranger Max Harrington, to help her find the culprit before Justin’s report airs. Otherwise Zo’s business just might go bust. But to catch this killer, Zo will have to risk much more than just her reputation.
