Amanda Clarke thinks of herself as perfectly ordinary in every way. Just a small-town girl who serves breakfast all day in a little diner nestled next to the highway, nothing but dairy farms for miles around. She fits in there. But then an old woman she never met dies, and Amanda was named in her will. Now Amanda packs a bag and heads to the big city, to Miss Zenobia Weeke Amanda Clarke thinks of herself as perfectly ordinary in every way. Just a small-town girl who serves breakfast all day in a little diner nestled next to the highway, nothing but dairy farms for miles around. She fits in there. But then an old woman she never met dies, and Amanda was named in her will. Now Amanda packs a bag and heads to the big city, to Miss Zenobia Weekes' Charm School for Exceptional Young Ladies. And it's not in just any neighborhood. No, she finds herself on Summit Avenue in St. Paul, a street lined with gorgeous old houses, the former homes of lumber barons, railroad millionaires, even the writer F. Scott Fitzgerald. Why, Amanda can practically hear the jazz music still playing across the decades. Scratch that. The music really, literally, still plays in the backyard of the charm school. Because the house stretches across time itself. Without a witch to protect this tear in the fabric of the world, anything can spill over. Like music. Or like murder. "Charm School", Book 1 in the Witches Three Cozy Mystery series. If you're a fan of Amanda M. Lee, N.M. Howell, or Amy Boyles, this mélange of magic and murder mystery is sure to charm you.

    Low 3 I liked the main character and some of the buildup, but I wasn't completely happy with the ending. It felt like it tried to wrap everything uup very suddenly, but didn't really succeed. Even rereading the last few chapters, I felt like some threads were neglected. Also the magic in the ending was too strong too fast. This makes it feel like a deus ex machina resolution instead of a natural growth. Low 3 I liked the main character and some of the buildup, but I wasn't completely happy with the ending.

Okay the ending was a bit hurried compared to the rest but all-in-one not a bad read. The characters too should become more defined with time, at present they still seem slightly flat. However the concept that the series is based on in great. Witches and a time travelling portal. When she is told that she should attend the reading of a will at a school she had never heard off, she agrees but only because her inner feeling tells her to and it has never failed her. Plus the attorney made her feel secure. Getting to the school was a nightmare but she was still the first to arrive. Two more young women were due. After an evening meal with the attorney and the housekeeper/butler/custodian they all retired to bed. With the reading to be held the next night. Only to discover the body of the attorney in the back yard. Then at the reading of the will they are told that they are witches and guardians of a time travel portal, that the attorney was actually from 1927 and split her time between now and then and that she was in charge of an amulet that let her do so. An amulet that is now missing. Can they go back and find the killer? Will the killer strike again? Where is the amulet? Will they stay and do what was asked?

    Awesome What an absolutely brilliant book! From characters so real you feel you know them to storylines that leap from the page to ensnare your mind and imagination, suspend disbelief and just enjoy. A magical roller coaster ride of sheer enjoyment not to be missed, highly recommend a must-read, I've purposely not mentioned anything about the actual story, way to many spoilers, just enjoy, Baz.

After meeting with the others, she learned that the owner of a charm school had invited them , they were surprised to find.out they were witches. Walk beside them as they learn the duties of protecting a charm school.

    Wow! I love this story. I really like that it's written in the first person, from the point of view of a young woman who has found herself in the middle of something that she doesn't understand, but is doing her very best to figure out where she fits in and how she can help. I've already ordered the next book, and I can hardly wait to read it Wow! I love this story.

    Fun. I finally decided to give this book a try and I'm glad I did. The story and characters were intriguing and engaging. There were times when I hated putting the book down--one does require sleep. There were two loose ends that were not resolved, but perhaps in the next book. This book is definitely worth reading.

    Charm School is a fantasy meets thriller kind of book. I really enjoyed the first half with Amanda discovering a whole new life. However, the thriller part was pretty obvious (for me). I figured out who did it almost right away so the second half was a little less interesting. Nevertheless, was a nice read, just wasn't memorable.

    Great story - needs a quick look-over by an editor I enjoyed the story, but found myself being pulled out of it several times by glaring mistakes that an editor would easily fix. I'm going to check out the next book in the series. Maybe since this one is free, the author didn't bother with an editor, but I hope she did for future novels in the series.

    I received the prequel Enter Three Witches free which tells how Cynthia meets Amanad, Sophie, and Brianna. I thought Charm School was a good 1st book in this series. At times it was a bit confusing but overall a good read.

    The Witches Three A lovely witchy mystery. Twists and turns in abundance, suspense, action, humor and lots more to find between the pages of this book. Thank you for a most enjoyable story. I was spellbound from the first word until the very last.

    This is a great airport read because it is an entertaining, quick read. The Kindle version needs another round of editing to clean up the misspellings, missed punctuation, and the like.

    I wanted to be charmed (so to speak) but it didn't deliver. I felt it started out interesting but failed to be surprising or compelling as we went along.

    Riveting Wow. This book pulls you in and the action never stops. The characters are great and story keeps you guessing til the end.

    Another reasonably quick read, 170 pages in the NOOK edition, that I enjoyed. In this installment, three exceptional young ladies, one each from Boston, New Orleans, and Scandia IA, come together for the reading of a will. Two were reluctant witches, the third had no idea she has a power that exceeds both others. Combined, they solve two murders that span the decades. Any more, I'd give away the story. I let you discover that for yourselves. Another reasonably quick read, 170 pages in the NOOK edition, that I enjoyed.
