Ghost Mysteries and Sassy Witches (Vol 1)
A Box Set.
I shall however review each book in the set in one go as I have been reading rather a lot of box sets just recently. Partly because I have been given some, and partly because I have been able to buy them for 99p. Which is just too much of a bargain to ignore!
Red hair and pale are essential pre-requirements to be a witch. Plus a sense of adventure and fun, an ability to concentrate and practice, and a love of life. Not to mention a name beginning with a Z. but who calls a child Z…?
A fun book with a family of witches who all look alike and have similar names.

Bring on the Poltergeists.
Ghost hackers part 2.
Love and Elephants.
Dice witches, knitting witches (I want to be one!), weather witches, email witches, hospitality witches. So many very specific types of witches looking after some very specific areas of our life.
And then the witches get together for tea and cake and watch all their spells activate on a very large TV screen in real life as they happen…
Such an unusual idea. 4.
Date with a Ghost in Colorado
Ghost Mysteries of the Southwest
Owl Bend Colorado.
Warren – her boyfriend (sort of) – appears to Samantha in a tuxedo – but he died 9 hours before this, in the outside world, taking photographs – and clearly would not be dressed in a tuxedo! And then he moves in with her – but only comes after dark.
But he gives her enough mysterious hints and evasions and not quite truths in their conversations – yes she is talking to a ghost - to make Samantha suspicious about what happened to him.
And the amount of gin she drinks doesn’t help her reason rationally.
This is a very different story telling. It moves along slowly but inevitably towards the denouement.

A Stormy Day Mystery
And yes, Stormy Day is a woman…
This is a cozy mystery with a cat. Good start.
Stormy returns to her childhood home Misty Falls, Oregon, to settle and invest after leaving her high stress and high earning job. She initially buys a shop and a pair of semi-detached houses.
She then finds her father’s neighbor very dead – encased in a snowman!
But Jeffrey – her father’s cat, looks after her and even helps her in the many mysterious ways that cats can.
Gentle humour and self-deprecating 1st person narration style.
Bought book 2 in the series ‘Stormy Day and a Crafty knitter’.
Great title and appeal to the knitter in me.
