    Witches, butlers, and a whodunit. I really like this series. Especially the love triangle between a witch, a werewolf, and a vampire. I don't know which one I am rooting for. I enjoyed the point of view from the seen and not heard from background characters, the butlers. They really take their roles seriously. I was a bit confused at the beginning of the story with a character referred to as Tonya then Tanya. This happened multiple times in one scene.

Either the author had a slip or my memory is slipping. Maybe it has been twins all along and I need to read slower.. :) Despite any minor errors I feel there may be this is a fun read. I look forward to the next in the series.

    These books just feel like a little warm hug onna rainy day. I absolutely love diving into them. This book only gets four stars because I wish there was a little more detail in there. About bewitching bites mainly! Also I just love Alec. I like the sherrif too but he's no sexy vampire is he. These books just feel like a little warm hug onna rainy day.

    Treasure This was a story within a story. Pretty good too. So my thoughts, I adore Sheriff Granger .and how great he treats Ember. However, I don't feel he fully appreciates all that she can do for herself. He still wants to protect her and even coddle her a little, maybe.?. Where as Alec, he seems to know who she is and how capable Ember can be. The only thing holding him back is propriety. So I am on team Alec. Treasure This was a story within a story. Pretty good too.

    A bit of a disappointment compared to the previous books. The plot was a little all over the place and, while I give a lot of leeway to cozy mystery protagonists, so much of what she did was just super unethical.

This can stand alone as the case is resolved within the story but it is more enjoyable to read them from the start as characters and their relationships are developing throughout the books. Alec is Ember's immediate boss. Gone on a holiday, so her nemesis in the office is her temporary boss. He assigns Ember to the Butler conference. Ember is a reporter for the paper her aunt owns but is trying to prove her worth by working hard. Somehow no matter where she is assigned trouble follows which makes for a bigger story for the paper. One consolation is that Simon her aunt's Butler will be in attendance and Ember is hoping for his help. Unfortunately a body interrupts the proceedings, this opens up a whole new world of experiences including ghosts, treasure maps, pirates and a thief. On top of this a new family member that Marley is in awe of and more training for the newest member of Starry Hollow. Raoul adds top comedy moments and a sweet ending. The story is fast moving, engaging and hard to put down. Each book has been fantastic with the characters coming into their own and more new and interesting places to discover. This book adds a real gem to the collection. I enjoyed it tremendously. Can't wait for the next one.

    This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers. To view it, click here. First book was a 3* I've got the (first?) 6, of them and am reading through them and am sad to say this book has fallen to a 2*. I am just not liking the sheriff, actually he's annoying the heck out of me. He insists, to Ember that she calls him Granger, reminds her on their date that when he's not on duty, its fine. Which is all well and good, except even on their date, just after reminding her to call him by his given name, he calls her by her surname of Rose! And he keeps doing so. -- BBQ wit First book was a 3* I've got the (first?) 6, of them and am reading through them and am sad to say this book has fallen to a 2*.

And he keeps doing so. -- BBQ with his mother and family (where I'm at, in the book), she's Rose... he never calls her Ember. Ember is also annoying me for not calling him out on it. Being Rose / Sheriff while both are working makes sense, but for only him to actually have his given name in use is annoying... In earlier books Ember made a point of telling people who knew her as a baby called Yarrow, that her name is Ember (She had not realised that Yarrow was her real first name, she'd always been Ember to her recall), so the fact she's not correcting the Sheriff is frustrating.

    This is a review for the Starry Hollow Witchs books 1 through 6, as I read them all one ofter the other so feel a series review is in place. This series had a different feel to the Spellbound books. For a start Starry Hollow takes it's place in the world at large and time has continued to move forwards.

The magic appears to be different dependant on the users and has a slightly different feel to it. Ember (like Emma in Spellbound) does arrive though from the human world and finds out she is a witch from a rather special family. There she discovers a matriarchal aunt, cousins, nieces and nephews and a whole cast of weird and wonderful townsfolk, including some rather handsome new suitors. Ember and her daughter discover the delights of a new world, along with solving some murder and mayhem on the side. The world is delightful and I recommend these books highly for a spot of light reading that will surely distract from the day to day of reality. Fun and engaging.

    Did the butler do it? A Butler is murdered at a Household Management convention, and Aunt Hyacinth's Butler is a suspect. A treasure map, an enchanted candy store, a werewolf barbecue, broomstick lessons figure in. And Raoul, her raccoon familiar, is as refreshingly outspoken as Ember. Another delight. I read book one last week and am quickly working my way through the series so far. Did the butler do it?

    Great series! This series gets more and more interesting as it goes along. The author is so skilled at developing this magical world that is still believable and relatable. The characters have personality, depth, and are truly enjoyable for the most part. There are also elements of romance, including a bit of a triangle. If you enjoy paranormal cozy type mysteries you will love this series!
