BOOK SUMMARY:

The Call of the Wild are the most famous werewolf rockers in the supernatural world – but that might be about to change, seeing as their fans are turning up dead.

When the bodies of two young superfans are discovered, all evidence points to the Call of the Wild. Wanda hopes that the rockers aren’t the real killers – especially since her best friend has a thing for their singer.

Wanda and the gang must delve deep into the world of werewolf rock and roll. But the case proves far more complicated than it seems – particularly since the victims’ familiars have been murdered, too …

A FAV.

This will definitely be one of my favorites for the entire series. I loved the mystery and it really kept me on edge. I was so distracted by other points of the story the real murderers snuck in beautifully.

Wanda is just, an absolute gem. I love her. Great humor, ability to be brave when needed and vulnerable when the world calls for that too. I love her friendship with Max, Finn and Melissa. Dizzy, her bat familiar, is cute and has continued to be a perfect addition to series. Things are starting to come together in Wanda’s personal life too and there’s a prophecy being opened up so I am here for the last few books!!

These are short books and don’t need long reviews. Trust me when I say that if you’re looking to try out a cozy mystery, I would HIGHLY recommend these! I’m never bored and love revisiting these characters and world over again. I keep trying to read a different kindle book in between these and get totally sucked back into the Wayfair’s.

Overall audience notes:

  • Paranormal cozy mystery
  • Language: none
  • Romance: kisses
  • Violence: murder (not in deep detail), animal attacks

Book Review: Loved Up (Wayfair Witches #6) by A.A. Albright

Rating: ☆☆☆☆

BOOK SUMMARY:

For the Wayfair Witches, the romantic season is beginning. Unfortunately, it’s beginning with a murder.

When Nancy Berry is killed during spring celebrations, the reason seems clear to her coven leader. Will Berry believes that Nancy was killed as a threat, to force him to vote the right way in an upcoming election.

But Wanda thinks there’s a far more fiendish reason for Nancy’s murder. She suspects Nancy was killed by the mysterious assassins known as the Dark Team.

Wanda and the gang are closer than ever to tracking the killers down, but they might be about to experience a slight delay …

Because while the romantic season might have begun with a murder, it hasn’t stopped the Wayfair women feeling amorous. Maybe even a little too amorous …

Could there be a love potion at work?

AT LAST.

I was hoping this installment was going to give me some things that I needed to happen to want to continue.

THEY DID. So here I am, still fully invested six books in.

In a simple story line there was a lot to unpack. This focused more on Wanda’s romance life and brought us up to speed on where we all know that’s going. I thought it was quirky with everything happening, making me very happy that this mystery was solved. Because I definitely sat here most of the book going, what is happening?!?

All of the reveals had me dropping my jaw, and also saying, I KNEW IT.

Give me a fabulous ending and I’m reading to follow Wanda onto the next mystery. I love the simplicity of these stories and seriously, the absolute coziness. These fit their genre incredibly well and have become a comfort read I can rely on to have a good time.

Overall audience notes:

  • Paranormal cozy mystery
  • Language: none
  • Romance: kisses; some innuendo
  • Violence: murder, kidnapping

Book Review: Wrapping Up (Wayfair Witches #5) by A.A. Albright

Rating: ☆☆☆☆
Audience: Paranormal Cozy Mystery
Length: 215 pages
Author: A.A. Albright
Publisher: Self-published
Release Date: December 22nd, 2017

BOOK SUMMARY:

It’s the most wonderful time of the year – or at least it would be, if one of the most popular witches in Riddler’s Cove hadn’t just been murdered.

When Winnie Wywood is found, strangled by festive ribbon and wrapped up like a present, there are two main suspects.

Suspect number one is the father of Wanda’s boyfriend, which might make the holiday period ever so slightly awkward.

Suspect number two is a woman who seems all too keen to admit to the murder.

Wanda hopes to track down the culprit before the Winter Solstice celebrations get underway. But there might be a little more to worry about than who killed Winnie.

A WINTER MYSTERY.

Why yes, I did finish this book in less than 24 hours because I didn’t want to put it down.

So much is happening in so few pages y’all! I didn’t know how it was all leading up until the mystery started being unraveled. I love how with each mystery the larger plot of the entire series keeps unfurling. I’m not sure where that’s quite leading to, but I am definitely here for the ride. I can’t believe I’m almost to the halfway point [There’s 11 books + 2 side stories].

This one made a few things clearer in regards to Wanda and her love life. And I am totally on board which I feel is why I’m still invested in this stories. It’s kind of hit or miss in that department (as it always is with ships).

I love how themed this was with Christmas and the Winter Solstice. It made it playful and fun even if it did have its usual dash of murder. I’m smitten with these lovable characters and can’t wait to see what happens next.

Overall audience notes:

  • Paranormal cozy mystery
  • Language: none
  • Romance: kisses
  • Violence: murder

Book Review: Winging It (Wayfair Witches #4) by A.A. Albright

Rating: ☆☆☆☆
Audience: Paranormal Cozy Mystery
Length: 298 pages
Author: A.A. Albright
Publisher: Self-published
Release Date: December 1st, 2017

BOOK SUMMARY:

A witch, a weredog and a wizard walk into a bar …

When three unlikely friends kill themselves in a popular weredog bar, Wanda Wayfair is convinced that there’s more to the story. With the coven’s work now in the hands of the Minister’s Peacemakers, an investigation would be ill-advised.

But since when do witches listen to advice?

All of the deaths have something in common – every one of the deceased worked in Plimpton’s Brooms. With the Everest Climb – the biggest broom race in the witching world – about to take place, Wanda hopes to find the answers there. Especially since Everest is also the place where an annoying young witch was last seen in public.

Wanda needs to solve the murders, track down Candace Plimpton and return her to her cute-as-a-button kitten …

And while she’s at it, she might finally find out what her broom has to do with it all.

CAN’T STOP. WON’T STOP.

But really. I can’t stop reading this series.

Not a problem at all.

There’s something compelling about the simplicity of a cozy mystery that has really drawn me in. I love following Wanda on her adventures. Her tenacity to solve the murder mystery, while also supporting those around her just works together beautifully.

I don’t know how I’m supposed to ship Wanda with though! I have somehow caught myself up in a love triangle, that when reading, doesn’t even read as one. BUT I KNOW IT IS. I’ve convinced myself it is at least, because I know where I’m still leaning. It’s at least not annoying me, so yay for a love triangle [maybe] that’s working for me.

I appreciate that this mystery did actually shake up location and story line. Got to take care of a few malicious witches, solve some family troubles, and a whole lot more. There’s plenty packed in to a small amount of pages and I love it. On to the next!

Overall audience notes:

  • Paranormal cozy mystery
  • Language: none
  • Romance: kisses
  • Violence: murder (believed to be a suicide, but is found out to be a murder)
