Summary

Stormy Morgan left her hometown of Shadow Hills, Michigan, with one goal: To write the great American novel and strike it rich. She sold her novel not long after college, did relatively well, and then fell off a cliff into obscurity. Now, without a book contract, she’s back at her family restaurant in a one-stoplight town...and she’s convinced things couldn’t possibly get worse.

That feeling only lasts until her first shift, when on a trip to the storage building behind the restaurant, she literally trips over a body.

Roy Axe, Shadow Hills most hated “Axehole”, died a hard death only feet from the restaurant (and the second-floor apartment Stormy currently resides in). The detective on the case is none other than Hunter Ryan, Stormy’s high school boyfriend, and the man who occasionally still calls to her in dreams. Hunter only cares about solving a mystery - nothing else - so their reunion is tense.

In an attempt to distract herself from what’s happening, Stormy and her cousin Alice get drunk one night and pull out their great-grandmother’s old Ouija board, and it sets off a strange string of events, most of which seem magical...if you believe in that sort of thing, and Stormy isn’t sure she does.

Stormy has trouble deciding which problem to focus on, so she avoids them all until things start blowing up in her face.

Shadow Hills is a small town but the secrets that plague it run deep. Stormy is a woman - or maybe a witch - lost in a sea of magic and despair...but murder might just lead her out of it. That is if she can survive to solve the case, that is.

Nice but slow and silly

Nice small town detective story with added supernatural element which isn’t fully explored and feels peripheral. The ENDLESS meaning about a failed writer’s career gets pretty tedious too. We get it, you’re disappointed your second book was a flop - you’re also ONLY 28. Not exactly old for an author. The final reveal of the detective plot is just silly and also very gross story wise. Not for me. Good narration though.

I give honest reviews

I don't say I liked a book I didn't and I don't automatically give 5 stars. Although this author I'd one of my most favorite, I must say, that in my opinion, she has had one or two not-so-great books lately.
That being said, in addition to that I also have to say that this is possibly her best book yet.
The mystery was good. It took a little bit of effort to solve, unlike many other cozy mysteries I have read. The characters were well-developed and the main couple didn't just jump into bed. Although it's probably a foregone conclusion that they will eventually, there is room for a bit of anticipation to see when.
I also like that it was set, not in, but near Hemlock Cove, a very familiar place to Midwest Witches fans like me.
Lastly, I want to say that I hope that we keep this narrator for the series duration. She sounds like very adult and doesn't try to put too much emphasis where there shouldn't be any. She also does fairly good male voices.

4 stars

Sinfully Delicious is an entertaining and enjoyable paranormal cozy mystery series with engaging characters and entertaining plot. Stormy and Hunter have romantic chemistry, but it doesn't dominate the story. I enjoyed the interactions between the characters and the witty dialogue. The resolution of the mystery was a surprise I didn't see coming. I look forward to the next book in this series.

What a Hoot

I almost stopped listening when the topic of politics came up, so glad I didn’t.

I haven’t laughed so much during one book since I don’t know when. Love Stormy, Sebastian, Grandpa, and Hunter.

Narration good, hope this series continues

I wanted to like it

I really hate that I didn’t like this book...at all. It lacked any depth and I found myself shaking my head through most of it because even the “everyday” stuff was not believable.

Loved it!!

The characters were well written and thought out. You could picture them in your mind and they reminded me of my family. Blunt, funny and dysfunctional! Loved the narrator as well! ❣️

2 stars because...

Okay, first of all this story really sucked balls on so many levels. Because I read though the other reviews and they were positive I decided to give this a chance and boy was that a bad idea. I'll give it that the grandfather was probably the ONLY redeeming feature of this book while the MC constantly blames herself for things that aren't her fault, the girl is fucking weak and has no damn backbone when it comes to anything, not even a witty snarky remark, it was so frustrating. The mystery was okay and worth trying to figure out. The story hints at there being some magic in the MC but never really gets around to actually discussing it and shes too much of a wussy to even straight out ask the right person about it. If anything this who book is some pansy ass lost high school love story that's not worth the money or credit.

Favorite yet

I loved this story. If you enjoy the dynamic of Bay, Clove, and Thistle in Amanda M. Lee's "Witches of the Midwest," you will be a fan of this book. The characters are interesting. There is a grumpy elderly Grandpa, who would remind me of Tilly (not as crazy). I totally recommend this story. Great narrator too.
