Publisher's Summary

Win, lose, or draw....

A Westwick Witches Cozy Mystery

Cendrine West can't catch a break. She's close to landing a new job, and things are getting cozy with sexy sheriff Tyler Gates. All that changes when she is kidnapped by renegade witch Aunt Pearl, who is hell-bent on avenging a friend's untimely death. It's Las Vegas or bust...for all the wrong reasons.

Rocco Racatelli is a hunky Vegas kingpin - and the next mob target. Lady Luck has dealt him a losing hand and he wants revenge. When Aunt Pearl is a little too eager to help, project Vegas Vendetta quickly escalates into an all-out mob turf war. As the witches are thrust into Sin City's seamy underworld, bodies pile up and secrets are exposed.

It's not just the Las Vegas heat that's scorching...Rocco is intent on winning Cen's heart. But she only wants the man she left behind in Westwick Corners. All she has to do is solve a murder, out-magic her ornery aunt, and take down the Las Vegas mafia. What could possibly go wrong?

When organized crime meets unorganized magic, anything can happen! As the body count climbs, it's clear that Cen needs more than a miracle in the desert to set things right.

    "Rags to Witches"

    This book is a great follow up for this series. It is very entertaining and will not take long to finish listening from beginning to end.

    "Nice Easy Listen But Good Story"

    I enjoyed this book.

    I had not read the first book in the series but it didn't matter as the author includes enough background so you know who is who but doesn't let this overtake this new book.

    It stands alone yet it left me wanting to read the previous book and hope that more books in the series are forthcoming.

    The story is a very easy read which is good, its what is wanted, a book that contains a good story but not one that is heavy and hard going. A book which is just one you can listen to for pure enjoyment and relaxation.

    The book hangs together well and I think it ties the different themes together well.

    It most definitely fits the cosy Mystery Genre even with splashes of witchcraft and romance throughout it along with the expected murders.

    The only thing that spoiled it for me was the narrator, as her voice, to me made the main Character sound as if she was 14 - the book is written in the first person, the main Character is telling the story and until she mentioned her age I had honestly thought she was a teenager. There was nothing in the story to give this impression it was just the way the narrator spoke - this could be because I am from the UK and the narrator is American so maybe the narrator is speaking as others who know the American accent better would say but this is how they would expect a woman the characters age to speak.

    To me, the narrator would be fantastic reading books whose main character is a teen.

    It was the only niggle I had with the book and it did spoil my enjoyment a little.

    I have definitely added the author to my list of authors whose books I would listen to.

    I must state I did receive this book free on the understanding I would give a truthful review, which this is.

    "Fun"

    This a fun series and I’m liking the characters, well most of them! Aunt Pearl is a nightmare but if it wasn’t for her antics the story wouldn’t kick off. Though if she was my aunt I’d be avoiding her big style haha
    Mr Policeman sounds very nice though and who knew! To know you need to listen or read the book. No spoilers from me.
    Try them for fun, light and time flying by antics.

    "Who killed Carla"

    Poor Cen. Aunt Pearl get her and her mother mixed in another antics. She kidnaps Cen and takes her and her mom to Las Vegas. Of course she does not tell the complete truth as to why they have to go. This mystery involves a dead friend of Aunt Pearls and whether it was an accidental death or murder. There is mobsters, gambling, shoot outs and mobsters trying to take over another's business. What does all this have to do with Cen, Aunt Peal and her mother? Come along and find out. This book was so funny and had plenty of twist. I look forward to more this this series. I was gifted this book in exchange for an honest opinion. I recommend this series. The narrator did a great job in bringing the characters to life.

    "Another fun cozy mystery Vegas style!"

    I love this author so much! She writes such a fun storyline with plenty twist and turns to keep anyone guessing what is really going on! Aunt Pearl is driving Cendrine nuts again! This time she drags Cen and her mom to Las Vegas! There is lots of humor, mystery, suspense, witches, danger, a touch of romance, and plenty action!

    Narration is excellent and brought the story to life! Love this narrator!

    There seems to be one crazy thing after another going on in this story! Poor Cen, she can’t win with her crazy aunt pearl shenanigans! This time they are in serious danger caught in between a mob war!

    There is plenty secrets that unfold as the story progresses. It’s always a rollercoaster ride with Aunt pearl! Such an entertaining ride all the way through.

    I love the way things wrapped up and I’m already looking forward to the next crazy adventure with this fun crew!

    "Not a bad cozy."

    Witches, Vegas, and the mob. I am new to this series and it does work as a stand alone, although I am curious about the first book. Sin is a out of practice witch trying to make an honest living when she is abducted by her eccentric aunt and taken to Vegas for a funeral. Nothing is as it seems as the aunt is a compulsive liar and a mystery begins to unfold regarding the death of the head mistress of the mob and subsequent shenanigans. The narrator does a great job with all the characters and its a decent listen. The aunt in the story is a little frustrating but I think she supposed to be so. I received a free review copy of this book at my request and have voluntarily left this review.

    "A lot of fun!"

    This book was a lot of fun to read. Twistier that a pretzel this story kept me guessing, many of the characters are keeping secrets that come together to create a mystery that is not obvious.

    The characters are really easy to like (or dislike depending on their nature), the settings are vividly described and easy to mentally picture. A fun way to spend and evening.

    The narration is well done, the delivery is smooth and natural and the character voices are clear and recognizable.

    I received a free copy of this book from the author and/or narrator and/or publisher and I voluntarily wrote this honest review.

    "Witches among us"

    This book made me want to slap aunt pearl for her bossyness and all the shooting in Vegas unbelievable. The book was enjoyable I love stories about witches. The mafia witch’s and innocent bystanders and the extra body in the casket was hilarious. Really enjoyed this book

    "The Westwick Witches hit Vegas!"

    Aunt Pearl takes control once again and throws a monkey wrench into all of Cen's plans. Going to Vegas to handle an "emergency" situation was not what Cen was expecting, but it might be just what she needs in order to accept who she really is.

    I loved the unexpected twist at the end!

    This book was so much fun! I loved the journey to find out who killed Carla. The author wrote some great imagery, light humor and had some unexpected twists. I hadn't seen the ending coming which is so good. I requested this review copy audiobook and have voluntarily written this review. This is a standalone listen.

    "Rags to Witches"

    Aunt Pearl is at it again, and at times your really want to shake some sense (or truth) into this woman. She drags Cen and her mom to Vegas in this little caper for a friends funeral. Only she tells lie after lie. Cen is having a time trying to sort through and decipher the truth. I enjoyed the story and look forward to more from the series. I absolutely loved the surprise ending with Tyler, and the few little pop up surprises near the end! The one thing that drives me nuts though is how Cen lets Aunt Pearl bully her. I am hoping with her promise near the end she will start to follow through with learning her magic! I think that would be a huge asset to the series! Nice job on the narration.

    "Laugh yourself silly!"

    situational-humor, verbal-humor, mob, family-dynamics, farce, mystery, audiobook --------
    If you like your mysteries full of laughs, twists, and characters who really are, you'll love this one as much as I do! Without going all spoiler, there's the 18 hour drive to Vegas with a lunatic driving a large RV, the crazy Aunt Pearl who is a witch without filters, Cen dropping the casket at a mob funeral. Recapping the plot wouldn't really be capable of doing justice to the humor or the truly imaginative plot twists, besides, you wouldn't believe me anyway.
    I was lucky enough to receive a free audio copy in a giveaway and think that Petrea Burchard is marvelous as narrator.
