    I have no idea what the appeal of this series is. I don't think they are terribly well written, the heroine annoys me with her arrant stupidity, and they just stop - like old episodes of Doctor Who - waiting for you to buy the next book. And yet, come the next book, there I am with my dollars, waiting for more witchy crack. I have no idea what the appeal of this series is.

    Love these novella's, I think the cheapest way to read them is thru Amazon Unlimited, they are free on AU or 3.99 a piece in the store. It only takes a few hours to read each volume so for 9.99 you might be able to read all 21 in a month if you read for 40-60 hours that month.

    Custard creams, peacocks, talent shows, fashionable catsuits, annoying relatives, murderers, knitting clubs, midnight buses.... And of course, blackmailing cats. I need more Jack & Jill romance, though. My favourite Cosy-mystery series. Always glad to be back into Jill's hilariously interesting life.

    I really don’t know why I started this book, it must be a kind of disease that keeps me coming back to this series thinking it will be better this time. Unfortunately it’s not!

Final thoughts Fuck off Kathy “It’s in a couple of days’ time,” Kathy said. “Don’t you remember, Auntie Jill? You asked me to get you a ticket. You are still going, aren’t you?” I gave her a look. She’d never mentioned a talent competition—I would have remembered. This was a good read. The 3 cases (ish) kind of threw me for a loop. I did enjoy the difference in the cases though, that was interesting but keeping track of who was who was difficult. I'm also getting a little bored of Amber and Pearl, those situations just sucked? However this was as good as a #10 in a series book could be expected!! Would I read again?: Yes Would I read this author again?: Yes

I don't like how in many of them its just all of a sudden an "Aha" moment that leads to Jill solving the case. This one was no different. In this one, 2 members of the knitting group show up dead.

You find out that the driver is gassing everyone and stealing their stuff when they're sleeping. Jill continues to prepare for an eventual meeting with TDO. She is wondering if it's her dad... As for the love life, Jack is depressed because he's suspended from work. Drake is living in Washbridge so he's around more often, but nothing has really happened there either. I'll probably keep reading for a few more books and then take a break. I'd still recommend these for sure!

    An Excellent Series! To sum it up briefly, Adele Abbott can spin one mean yarn! I am DEFINITELY hooked on this series "A Witch P l Mystery" ; I simply have to know what the main character, Jill Gooder is up to now!

    Really enjoyed! Really enjoyed this book. It was definitely a bit deeper than the last one. I liked the investigations in this one too.

Jill's reaction to her father's reappearance was a bit strange. She didn't really give him a chance to explain himself fully and why he was worried about her. She was so dismissive I wondered why she had bothered calling him in the first place. To assume he is TDO came out of left field but I will eat my words if he is! I'm more suspicious of Drake. Right, off to download Book 11. Just one more thing, I do think each book could have been made longer to reduce the series. Thirty books is an extremely large collection but once you start you have to keep going!

    A much better book than previous stories A limit on bad puns, Winky & family interactions means more time spent on mysteries. Too many mysteries. They seem to be sprouting like grass everywhere her friends go. Does Jill even get paid, since she's often asked by friends to help out? Ah well, there's another mystery. One thing is for certain, Washbridge and Candlefield are two crime riddled towns with the least competent police force ever.

    Okay, I know it's not the last book in the series, but it's the last one for me, for sure. It was good books, light ones, with a good humour and characters, but the plot is going nowhere and I feel tired of them. This one is 3,5/5 for me. Same problems. But I don't think it was a waste of time, I enjoyed these 10 books. Thank you, Jill, Amber, Pearl, Aunt Lucy, Grandma, Mrs V and Winky for this journey. Thank you, Adele Abbot.

    Delightful series! I like the wisecracking, pun loving protagonist very much. She gets away with things that we can’t in the human world! I look forward to antics from Jill’s cat, the trouble she gets into, and the cast of characters that have become like friends. A cozy mystery for those that enjoy a supernatural mystery without all the gratuitous sex and violence. Also, this is well edited.

    A witchy private investigator cozy mystery A witchy PI cozy mystery/urban fantasy series. A private investigator who also happens to be a witch spends time between the normal world and her family‘s home in a supernatural only town. She bounces back-and-forth solving mysteries in both while trying to live her life and learn more about her which powers. A very entertaining supernatural series

    I really do love these books and could listen to them one after the other. Jill's life is rather silly at times. She gets a job offer which I wish she would take.... She never sorts out her love life. Great Betty storyline. The crimes are good. We don't see enough of Grandma in this one, which is a massive shame. Nor Barry.

    Secrets Abound This one HAS to be the one that sets up the next few books. There are happenings: Jill solves another murder, yet another ghost comes to visit, the twins AND Aunt Lucy swear her to secrecy, but some come out anyway. Fun is had, but to reveal more would not be be fair as they would be spoilers.

    I really enjoyed this one. Finally, there was more focus on the crimes than Jill´s personal troubles :D But as I was complaining the last I missed more crime, that there was only Jill and her personal life, this time I actually missed more of Candlefield, Jack, I even missed Grandma :D but still, it was a great one, I liked the crimes.

    This is a perfect series to read with 7th and 8th-grade girls who struggle with reading. They are finally interested in reading. PG romance, magic and mystery - all there in these books I read them on my kindle and have 5 copies of each book that they get to keep. Fortunately, my copy is kindle unlimited and my local book store helps out with the cost of the copies.

    Fun! Really cute distracting plot. Very light with silly characters. Perfect for vacation reading or passing the time on work breaks. I’ve grown very fond of Washbridge and Candlefield and their inhabitants.

    This may be interesting to someone who’s into this kind of thing. Somewhat disjointed narrative. The original idea of a PI Between two worlds is fine. Unfortunately there’s just too much going on.

    Fun Beginning to worry because some of Jill's habits, likes, dislikes, etc. mirror some of mine. I also say funny things (to me) that produce strange looks on others' faces. Am enjoying the series. The teasers at the end of each book makes me ready for the next one. Fun Beginning to worry because some of Jill's habits, likes, dislikes, etc. mirror some of mine.
