I ve always been a fan of witch stories and murder mysteries, and as it turns out, when the two combine, it creates pure magic In this enchanted mystery, we follow the path of Justice witch Cassia as she tries to figure out who the murderer is after a healthy Centaur is found dead of supposed heart failure This one will keep you guessing because each character was created with their own set of motives that made me think that just about every one was guilty at some point in the story Each character is written to display both good traits and bad, and to me, that made them all thereal whether it was their greed or jealousy or something else entirely that contributed to the story When the truth was finally revealed, I couldn t believe who the killer actually was, and the ending left me wanting to readThis is the first book in this series and by this author that I ve come across, but after this, I want to read the rest of the series to see what other adventures are in store for Cassia.The audiobook includes some smooth narration that worked well for the characters in the story.This book was given to me for free at my request, and I provided this voluntary review. My first experience with Cassia Winter was a fun and exciting one I loved the setting and the characters The gnomes feud was an especially fun side story I also loved the flying kitten story but it did often feel as though it took away from the main story linethan it should have Overall, I thought it was a great story I would love to read the others in the series.I listened to the audiobook and I thought Rebecca McKernan did an excellent job with the narration Her characters were distinct and the pacing was perfect I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

Cassia Winter is new to being a justice witch and is aided in her quest by trusty helper Stanley the cat Once peaceful Brimstone is now the site of a yet another murder Selo, a centaur half man half horse , has been assassinated and Cassia must figure out who hired the hitman and why Selo was a very willful creature that didn t care the havoc he made when running through the town and he had many enemies within the centaur community along with the residents of Brimstone Just when Cassia and Stanley think they have things figured out, another murder occurs and makes them look in a totally different direction.This series just seems to get better thethe author writes The character of Cassia is coming into her own in the role of justice witch and starting to learn new skills such as flying a broom While she is still very trusting of others and a bit naive, she is starting to grow a backbone and isn t taking no for an answer Cassia is still struggling with her feelings for Lucas and has somehow made an enemy out of his girlfriend One can only wonder what will happen next This cozy mystery is filled with quirky characters, whit, whimsy, lots of paranormal beings, and a great plotline. This is the first book in the series I have read and I will be going back to read the other 2 now Cassia is just so sweet not wanting to rock the boat between Luca and Astrid even though Astrid is well just nasty Fortunately Cassia doesn t let Astrid get in the way of Luca helping her with her investigation as well as spending a bit of time with him I liked how we really didn t know what was going on at first with who murdered Selo, but also with how the other Centaurs when Cassia and Stanley visited them There were some great twists and lovable characters ie Kitty that make you want to visit brimstone.well maybe not visit just yet I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review.
