Psychics, missing persons, witches, corpses, and vampires? Redemption, Wisconsin, is my kind of town!
Charlie runs a tea and tincture service from her house. One of her customers, eighty-year-old retired schoolteacher Mildred, is concerned about her neighbor. It seems Jonas has taken a month-long vacation without telling her. Now, a man claiming to be Jonas’ house sitter is acting bizarrely. He only appears at night when he digs holes in the backyard by flashlight. Could the holes be graves? People are disappearing in town. Could the house sitter be a real-life vampire? Charlie decides to help Mildred investigate more to protect Mildred than to determine if there really is a neighborhood vampire.
Murder Next Door is a humorous paranormal cozy mystery. I had a great time reading about the crazy locals and trying to solve the disappearances along with Charlie. This book is the perfect vacation read. 4 stars!
Thanks to the author and Great Escapes Book Tours for a digital review copy of the book.

Everyone knows vampires don’t exist.
So when Mildred Schmidt, one of Charlie’s customers, is convinced that her next-door neighbor’s house sitter is actually a vampire, Charlie of course has to step in to see what is really going on.
What she finds is … disturbing. The house sitter DOES have some peculiar habits—like digging holes in the backyard in the middle of the night.
Surely, they aren’t … graves.
But then Polly, a local teenager, goes missing.
Of course, teenagers DO run away from time to time.
Less explainable is the dead body that then appears in the “vampire’s” yard.
Luckily, Charlie is hot on the case, and not a moment too soon as she races to not only find Polly, but to discover the killer before the bodies start to pile up.
Meet Charlie. Better known as “Aunt Charlie” from the award-winning Secrets of Redemption series. She’s back, making teas and solving cases in this funny, twisty, cozy mystery series set in the 1990s in Redemption, Wisconsin.
