“We’ll figure this out. People don’t get stabbed every day. Even in Whispering Pines.”
It’s time for the annual Whispering Pines Tour of Gardens, and people are arriving by the busload. Discussions of raised beds, different types of fertilizers, and proper amounts of sunlight can be heard all around the village.
Then, just as things are getting underway, someone vandalizes the gardens.
Between running her successful shop, Hearth & Cauldron, and dealing with her new teenage roommate who has turned her orderly home life into the female Wiccan version of The Odd Couple, Reeva Long’s days are full. She doesn’t have time to track down suspects. It’s the middle of the busy tourist season, though, and solving this crime isn’t high on the sheriff’s priority list either.
So Reeva and her sidekick best friend, Ruby, dig in. When events escalate, however, and one of the witches on the tour is attacked, the amateur sleuths fear there’s something more sinister going on in the village.
Hearth & Hedge is the second book in the Hearth & Cauldron Mysteries series. If you like your witchy mysteries on the cozy side with plenty of quirky characters, and a dash of paranormal, you’ll love this series.
