Murder is a dish best served in a foreboding Victorian castle! Tellehandra McMurry is a cheeky young woman with a severe governess. When her father dies, she is sent to live with her Uncle Reginald in a far off corner of County Cork. Deeply in debt, Uncle Reginald has found an interesting way to erase his gambling problems --by murdering his debtors. When his young niece T Murder is a dish best served in a foreboding Victorian castle! Tellehandra McMurry is a cheeky young woman with a severe governess. When her father dies, she is sent to live with her Uncle Reginald in a far off corner of County Cork. Deeply in debt, Uncle Reginald has found an interesting way to erase his gambling problems --by murdering his debtors. When his young niece Tellehandra arrives, he finds a more enterprising way to seek his fortune. If he can press his niece into marrying his son, then the family fortune will roll down to him. And if can’t press her into marriage, then there is always another way to obtain what he seeks. But Tellehandra won’t give in so easily, she’s made of different stuff. Years earlier, Tellehandra’s mother was sent away from the family home, and Tellehandra is beginning to understand why – because her mother was a witch. Perhaps being a child of a enchantress is fortuitous, because Tellehandra will need all her wits and talents about her if she is going to escape Castle Reddrick alive.

    Terrific New Series Something Witchy This Way Comes, by author Fiola Tempest, is the first in a new series. I was swept into this tale immediately! Full of mystery and intrigue, this story kept me wishing I could read faster! Wonderful conclusion, with a hint of more mystery to follow, makes me anxious for another installment!

    Highly interesting story Grilling story showing many avenues to discover in future books. Looking forward to reading them. Much more about Telehendra's last week's to be very interesting.

    Love Tellahandra and found myself on the edge of my seat sometimes, wondering how she would get out of the fix she was in. Great story!

    Different Well, this book was different, a young witch that gains a pet Bat. Her uncle and his son were nasty pieces of work. I did like this book though.

    Somewhat lacking, but good. It was a good story. Made me wonder what else happened to her as i felt there was a lot missing from the story.

    This book has a rich mystery feel similar to some of the “greats” like Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, but not as dark as Edgar Allen Poe.

Tellehandra, or Viola, finds herself left to her uncle’s evil devices after the death of her father. She doesn’t know where her mother was send away to many years ago. As her guardian, Viola’s uncle only has one concern and that is how he can take possession of her riches, he cares not if she is dead or alive to get what he wants. This sets her on a future of helping other less fortunate, plus gives her an insight of the criminal mind. It takes someone special to see through their deceitful and scheming tactics.

    Creepy gothic horror I raced through this novella and very much enjoyed getting to know the protagonist, a feisty Irish girl called Tellehandra Quinn McMurry.

Unfortunately, Uncle Reginald has designs on Tellehandra’s fortune and he and his son conspire to get it for themselves. Tellehandra has to keep one step ahead of this conniving pair.

There is a taster of the next book in this series entitled ‘Murder and Sherlock Holmes’. I like the idea of this fearless heroine working with the legendary Sherlock Holmes.

    Subtitled The Victorian Witch Chronicles, this novella is clearly establishing the heroine of the future series. For me not enough witchy this way came – I would have liked more, far more. However, I am interested enough to want to read the rest of the series. In this story the heroine, Lady Tellehandra, is established and we learn that she is resourceful and capable even without using any witch powers.

    When 15 year old Tellehandra is sent to live with an evil uncle after her father's death, she is faced with an impossible choice and must rely on her strong will and intelligence to escape. Meanwhile, she begins to wonder if her mother was a witch, and if she herself has magical powers. It's a fast read set in Victorian England, and after reading it, I'm anxious to read the next books in the series.
