Summary

Magic, mayhem, family, love, curses and murder!

This boxset collection includes the first three full-length magical cozy witch mysteries of Tess Lake's fun new series.

Butter Witch

The International Butter Festival has come to town! When Harlow Torrent, part-time journalist and full-time Slip Witch stumbles upon a dead body, frozen and drained of blood, she's pulled into a murder mystery.

Someone has murdered one of the Festival competitors. Was it Zero Bend, punk sculptor with a history of violence? Perhaps Fusion Swan, a sleazy agent playing the publicity game when his clients meet their end.

Between trying to run her struggling online newspaper, dealing with her highly caffeinated cousins Molly and Luce, fending off three meddling witch mothers who will do anything to get their daughters married (including drugging food with magic potions) and great Aunt Cass who appears to be running an underground laboratory, Harlow barely has time to breathe, let alone solve a murder.

Romance certainly isn't on the cards either but the hot scruffy guy new to town seems to have other ideas...

Treasure Witch

Harlow Torrent, part-time journalist and full-time Slip Witch is pulled into a murder mystery when the skeletons of a man and a girl are uncovered on Truer Island.

Seeing visions of the past that are all too real and ghosts who are becoming more solid by the day, Harlow is trying to keep her newspaper running, dealing with her crazy witch family and working out what to do about the very handsome Jack Bishop being back in town.

But Harlow might be out of her depth when the murderer sets their sights on her!

Hidden Witch

Harlow Torrent, part-time journalist and full-time Slip Witch is hot on the trail of an arsonist.

But who is behind the deadly fires? Someone working for their own evil ends or a fire spirit acting according to its nature? Or perhaps a magical power hidden away?

Too similar to another author

This was a good listen, ruined by the fact it’s ffaarrr to similar to Amanda m Lee’s Wicked witches of the Midwest.
Seeing as this was published well after her books this feels like a tweaked, less good copy of of Amanda’s series.

Very Familiar

These books remind me of the Amanda Lee books - same cousins, same aunts etc. But they are good stories.

Template writing?

These books seem very much like another popular author's writings I have read. Three sisters raised by an eccentric aunt who have three daughters. This series isn't near as entertaining or well written. I didn't bother to finish it as I got pretty bored. Don't waste your money.

Cute Series, I want to live in Harlot Bay!!!

What made the experience of listening to Torrent Witches Cozy Mysteries, Box Set 1 the most enjoyable?

I really enjoyed the stories the main characters are very likable. My favorite character would be Aunt Cass. A very spunkly old lady.

What other book might you compare Torrent Witches Cozy Mysteries, Box Set 1 to and why?

I discovered this series after I binged read/listened to the Wicked Witches of the Midwest Series. Very similar recipe, 3 young ladies with 3 crazy moms, a crazy awesome great aunt, no dads, a older police officer family friend and love interest for all 3 young ladies.

What did you like about the performance? What did you dislike?

i wish the performer didn't speak so fast in doing some of the voices, she tended to make the words very understandable due to slurring and speaking the lines too fast with a sad attempt of doing different voices.

Any additional comments?

worth the buy, buying the other 2 books in the series after this review.

Was that supposed to be an ending?

The books were level, by this I mean not a lot of ups or downs. the story wasn't very gripping there was no suspense and the so called ending was horrible it was as if the sentence that was being said was cut off suddenly mid sentence and then you hear the audouble recording. The narrator wasn't bad but wasn't amazing either. I see why it was all clumped together.

enjoyable

enjoyed the books, the reader was very good, but could have read the characaters a tiny bit less valley girl. 😁 if you like magic stories and mysteries, this is a good fit.

Waiting For More

I have enjoyed listening to all 10 of your books over and over again, hoping each time I curl up with the Torrent Witches Series that I will discover Tess Lake has gifted us with another continuation in her wonderful series and that it will also be narrated by the talented Natalie Duke whom no other could replace, especially when it comes to our spicy, sassy Aunt Cass. I never post writings with my reviews but am doing so now in hopes that Tess Lake will read this and be inspired by me and all her devoted fans who crave for more and are so grateful for the many hours she and Natalie Duke have given us! Thank You Tess Lake!

Cute series

This was a nice easy listen while at work. I love Adams I wish I had him as my pet. Only thing that bothered me was when the narrator paused after sentences. .....she said. ......I said. ......Mom said.

Wicked

Although I enjoyed these books, the bases are the same on the wicked witchs of the midwest by Amanda M Lee. 3 moms, 3 cousins, 1 old aunt living in an old family home turned b&b.
