Summary

Eat, Drink, and Be Poisoned...

A Christmas Cozy Mystery

Cendrine West is looking forward to a cozy Christmas Eve dinner when a blizzard blows in, bringing with it a flurry of unexpected guests. But tipsy witches and mischievous magic spell a recipe for disaster, especially when a guest turns up dead. 

Cen’s sleuthing exposes a Santa-size sack of trouble, and everyone’s a suspect, even her hunky sheriff boyfriend. Is it a deadly accident by a drunken witch...or something more sinister? Murder is on the menu, and only magic can uncover the truth in this witchy, wacky Yuletide thrill ride!

Glorious

I am extremely frustrated! However hard I search I cannot find a way to book myself into the Westwick Inn and how I'd love to stay there. First of all I must give due acknowledgement to the voice performance of Petrea Burchard. She has voiced this entire series and she brings the characters to life, (even Cendrine's Grandma!). I just love the relationships in this family and the squabbling sisters spending Christmas swapping increasingly barbed jibes at each other was superb. The story was clever, starting with a new character and then sneaking and snaking its way around the family and familiar faces until they were all intertwined. Colleen Cross provides precisely measured out ingredients for the perfect cosy mystery pie, and she tops it off with a pinch of her own, unique and special sprinkle of magic to make sure we readers will keep coming back for another serving. A joyous delight at any time of the year.

Westwick Witches cozy mystery Book 4

I enjoy this cozy mystery series so much! I would strongly encourage anyone to start with book one so that you will be familiar with the characters and not miss anything. This family of witches is a hoot!

Narration was great and brought the story to life!

This series is so entertaining and fun with unexpected twists and turns and delivered with lots of laughter! Aunt Pearl is still up to no good and trying to run the sheriff out of town. She invites several people to their family holiday celebration. Cendrine is not pleased but there is nothing she can do. This will not be a private family dinner like she had expected and trouble brews.

Excellent Author and amazing narrator! I’m always looking forward to any book done by this dynamic duo!

Aunt Pearl strikes again.........

Christmas Witch List is the fourth book in this series featuring a magical family of witches living in the small town of Westwick. Cendrine is a non-practicing witch with lots of unused magical powers, her mother Ruby uses her powers for mostly kitchen magic, and her Aunts Amber and Pearl are powerful and skilled witch practitioners. The entire family is gathered together for their usual Christmas Eve celebration, but Pearl has shaken things up by inviting several unexpected guests. Cendrine has also invited her boyfriend Tyler, the sheriff of Westwick and Aunt Pearl's archenemy. Two of the guests are Aunt Pearl's star pupil at her magic academy and her boyfriend, and two others are Cendrine's ex-fiance and his current girlfriend. Aunt Pearl's current flame Earl dressed in Santa regalia is also attending. Talk about a recipe for disaster, and Aunt Pearl overreaches her goal of getting some excitement when one of the dinner guests drops dead of poisoning. Everybody starts pointing fingers at everybody else as the guilty party, but I was completely shocked by how everything came together in the end. If you enjoy a great whodunit with lots of delightful and funny character interactions and just a dash of the paranormal, this book and the entire series is an excellent option.

Petrea Burchard narrates all the books in this series, and she is truly the voice of Cendrine. I love how she portrays Aunt Pearl's highly crotchety and confrontational personality, and her performance is absolutely flawless. I recommend anything that Colleen Cross writes and anything the Burchard narrates. Together, they make for great entertainment.

I received a copy of this audiobook at my request in exchange for this honest review.

Witchy Mystery


This is the 4th book in this series. I haven’t read any of the previous books and I would not suggest starting with this book. The story jumps right into the action. If you’ve read the others not having to sit through a rehash would be good but it didn’t let me really get acquainted or emotionally involved with the characters. Except for Aunt Pearl, I truly detested her. The mystery was interesting and with the large cast of characters it kept you guessing if it was an accidental death or a murder.
The narrator was very good with a wide range of voices. She really helped to make this a good listening experience. I’m having a hard time figuring out what to rate this book. I think not knowing the characters really detracted from my enjoyment but I am intrigued enough to think about getting the first book in the series. I was given this free review copy Audiobook at my request and I have voluntarily left this review.

Not your ordinary Christmas story

This was a very entertaining Christmas story with a magical twist. It really took me on an emotional roller coaster. Rare in a book to a become enraged on the primary characters behalf. What the author put that pure girl through made for a story I really loved. There were so many twists and turns, that it at times was hard to follow, but that’s part of what makes a great audiobook. The narrator was amazing in really bringing the different characters to life. This is one author I am looking forward to listening to or reading again.

A Great Listen

I was given this free review copy audiobook at my request, and have voluntarily left this review. It's the most wonderful time of the year in Westwick Corners, or almost, that is. A terrible snow storm has changed the plans for the West family Christmas, with extra people being added and sheriff Tyler stuck at work. All these extra guests has Cendrine confused and grumpy. Just when things seem to turn to the better, one of the guest drop dead. Was it an accident or is everyone trapped with a murder. Lots of suspense and craziness leads to them solving the crime. Always a great listen.

All I Want For Christmas . . .

I've been following this series on audiobook, quite deftly narrated by Petrea Burchard, and have watched Cen become ever so gradually more adept at spells and witchcraft. Like Samantha in "Bewitched," she rather considers it cheating to use magic for things she can do herself (no, wait, that was what Darren thought). However, each story so far could easily stand alone, so if this is your first introduction to Westwick, you will feel right at home. This Christmas pageant introduces you to some South Pacific lore--based on historic events!--as magic is overcome by old-fashioned greed and guile.

This narrator makes me love this series!

From the very beginning when I heard this narrator I was hooked! There are some books that are just better in audio and this is definitely one of them. I was voluntarily provided this free review copy audiobook by the author, narrator, or publisher.

Thoroughly enjoyable cozy mystery

This is a thoroughly enjoyable cozy mystery. It has a great mixture of mystery, suspense, and romance. The narrator does a wonderful job of reading this book and bringing each character out.

Christmas Witch list

This was a really good Westwick short story.It is Christmas and even Witches have wishes.With a family that bickers and fights like Cendrines and then you add unexpected guests,not all goes well. Petrea Burchard was a fine narrator. I was given this free review copy audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review.
