    Whimsical I hope this is the first in a long line of books. I thoroughly enjoyed the characters and loved the cat. If you enjoy paranormal cozy mysteries I heartily recommend this book.

    On a par with other cozy witch mysteries, simple pleasant read. Does not get inane as some are wont to do.

    A paranormal cozy mystery. Raven inherits a home and tea shop from her estranged grandmother. She also learns that she is a witch with Mr. Leo as her familiar and her teacher. Along with a diverse set of characters there is all kinds of fun and mystery maybe even romance. I didn't guess who the murderer was. A keeper. A paranormal cozy mystery.

    2.5 This was not particularly well written or well plotted but for a kindle freebie it was enjoyable. This is exactly what my stressed out brain needed and because they're so short I'll definitely be reading the next two that I got for free. I love cozy small town stories, add in witches and magic and it's my favorite thing to read come autumn. In my mind this is akin to a Hallmark Christmas movie. 2.5 This was not particularly well written or well plotted but for a kindle freebie it was enjoyable.

    A cozy mystery. Witches. Tea Shop. A mysterious murder. What more could I want? This was a really fun cozy to read. I was getting tickled at certain points, especially the play between Raven and her newly acquired familiar. Raven's estranged grandmother has passed, leaving her with a tea shop. The caveat? She has to come and live in Paramour Bay for 12 months, running the tea shop. Raven decides this is perfect timing since her life has been crumbling, and a fresh new start is just what she needs.

But then her grandmother's lawyer is found dead in the back of the tea shop, and this sets into motion more questions than answers. I enjoyed getting to know Raven as she begins the discovery of who she is, and I really hope we get more of her best friend in the series because those two are dynamic on the page together. They really do need to be business partners in this tea shop.

    I wanted to like this book. The description sounded interesting and the narrator spoke with a clear, humorous intelligence. Unfortunately, the story was full of too many tropes and (hopefully accidental) racism. The main character is a witch (she doesn’t know that yet) who moves to a very small town in Connecticut where she immediately meets the town Sheriff. Despite being very far from Texas and in a very New England town, he dresses like a cowboy. And of course, she thinks he’s very hot. Becau I wanted to like this book. The description sounded interesting and the narrator spoke with a clear, humorous intelligence. Unfortunately, the story was full of too many tropes and (hopefully accidental) racism. The main character is a witch (she doesn’t know that yet) who moves to a very small town in Connecticut where she immediately meets the town Sheriff. Despite being very far from Texas and in a very New England town, he dresses like a cowboy. And of course, she thinks he’s very hot. Because witches (women who live outside the heteronormative patriarchal norms of society) need to be paired up romantically with the law man in order to tame and legitimize them. Apparently, the main character/narrator and her best friend have also never seen a cat. They are repeatedly spooked by movement out of the corners of their eyes that might be orange or black and very furry. It’s fairly obvious to the reader that the narrator is encountering a (or more) cat(s). Yet the narrator (and her friend) is completely oblivious to the animal, other than being spooked and wondering what it could be — even going so far as to worry that it’s a possum. So as intelligent as she first appears to be, how smart can she possibly be? And then there was the racism. I only made it to chapter six and there were already two uses of the word gypsy — and not even in reference to the actual ethnic group for whom this is a pejorative term, but rather in the casual micro-aggressions of racist stereotypes. “I liked the gypsy style of clothes as well...” So, she wraps her head, wears full-length skirts with a long apron, as well as a vest...? “Gypsies” or Romani, as they are more properly known have a very specific mode of cultural dress that is not what popular catalogues have imagined it to be. The style the author is actually describing would more appropriately be described as Bohemian or Hippie. Next time, do some research. “My Nan had been a conwoman. I made no qualms that Nan should have been arrested for fraud. Taking money for such a false notion was downright criminal. What kind of gypsy hocus pocus was this?” — Double racism points for combining the concept of Romani as grifters and thieves with the magical other and images of Romani women as witches. As practicing witch and ethnically Romani, I found the novel unbearable past chapter six. One star: not even worth finishing.

    really light reading, interesting plot, but I think things moved a little too fast and everything just happened too nicely. The characterization is a bit lacking. I do really like the concept of a tea shop run by witches

Good light read, might try the sequel one day, not rushing.

    I was behind on writing book reviews, and when I came to this one, unfortunately I had to rack my brain trying to remember it. Not a great sign when a book is so forgettable. It was well edited, no glaring plot issues or misspelled words. And the story flowed fine, albeit a bit slow to begin with. Since this is the first book in the Paramour Bay Mystery series, there is room for it to grow. But I can’t say that the character development was very deep, or that the world building was vast.

    Cute story, loved Mr. Leo. Raven, I've never read of anyone who could jump to so many conclusions based on such flimsy circumstances as she does. At times I admired her for wanting to stick it out, and other times I shook my head that at almost 30 she could act so impulsively without stopping to think things through. Actually, lots of times she didn't bother to think. Her mother sure was domineering and determined to not let Raven make her own decisions.

    The story was disjointed, jerky, and not easily followed. The timeline went from very detailed & eventful in one day to completely skipping three days. This needs a lot of work to make it an enjoyable read. The basis for a compelling book is there, it just needs cleaned up, smoothed out, and clarified.

    Confusing I gave up trying to read this one. The author seems to have a sense of humor. However, trying to read this was annoying. I kept waiting for the action to start. The story would move and then stall out, while the author would go off on a tangent.

She might not have been close to her grandmother, especially since she practically cut off contact with Raven’s mother, but she was after all family. The phone call came at just the right time, but does have a few stipulations attached to this gift from the grave… including staying in town for a year and keeping the tea shop open. Okay, small details but for a coffee lover learning to like, let alone understand tea that part might be a stretch but Raven could learn. What she didn’t expect was the dead body of her grandmother’s lawyer in the storage room… or who ever this dead guy really was. When she begins to “hear” the ugly, mangy cat who appears in the tea shop actually carrying on a conversation with her – Raven is about to run back to the big city. But then things didn’t make sense… the dead guy wasn’t who he said he was, customers are asking for their “special” orders from her grandmothers storage room and the handsome sheriff doesn’t seem all that worried about a murder in his town. Pretty soon Raven is putting clues together and coming up with the unlikeliest suspects, but she’s not giving up. There is a murderer among her customers and she’s not about to get dead herself before they’re caught. I love the first book of a new Paranormal Cozy Mystery. Not only for a new experience, but because most often the main character has no clue to the fact that either they are a witch or that the paranormal actually does exist. So seeing each character’s reaction to this news gives me a good idea of what they’re going to be like throughout the series. I liked Raven. She’s no-nonsense, yet there is that touch of whimsy that when faced with facts she doesn’t totally run away. She might not like it, but she stands her ground. She’ll do a lot of trying to find other possibilities, but once she’s on-board she sticks. It will be interesting to watch as she develops and comes into her powers over the length of the series. There is a spark of attraction between Raven and Liam, the handsome sheriff and that will be fun to see how it plays out. Magical Blend did an excellent job of setting up this world, introducing Raven and her situation… and gave us lots and lots of laughs as she tries to discover the evil deed doer. I adored Leo, Raven’s familiar… he’s just snarky enough to be cute at it. I had fun with Magical Blend, it caught my imagination and I’m about to go pick up the next story in the series. If you love a good Paranormal Cozy Mystery give this one a look, I think you’ll discover a new series to follow – I know I did. I read this title through my Kindle Unlimited subscription.

    First book in a new series and it was a fun, clever and funny read. NYC resident Raven Lattice Marigold, granddaughter to Rosemary Lattice Marigold, has inherited her grandmother's tea shop, located In Paramour Bay, in the middle of Connecticut's coastline. To claim the tea shop as well as all her grandmother's possessions, Raven must run the tea shop and remain in Paramour Bay for one year. If that wasn't odd enough, Raven discovers the dead body of her grandmother's attorney in her store room. First book in a new series and it was a fun, clever and funny read.

There is a handsome sheriff, a cat with an attitude that can appear and disappear, a Lurch type man who lives behind her grandmother's house...and Raven discovers she's a witch. So who was the dead man? Why was he murdered? Is she in danger as well? Can Raven keep her mother from finding out about her returning to Paramour Bay and her inheritance? A totally enjoyable read. I look forward to the characters and the rest of all the witchy fun in this series.

    Enjoyed the book profusely. Good story, good characters, enough comedy to keep you chuckling and wanting more. My only problem (which seems to be the problem of all newer writers today), is that they fail to obtain the services of a good editor/proofreader, thereby failing the book, the writer and the reader.

This gives me the opportunity of looking at different writers' offerings and in that way, I can pick those who I would like to read more of and those who I will relegate to my no-no list. May I say that poor grammar, spelling and interchanging characters is a sure way of getting on my no-no list. Take pride in your work, because if you don't, nobody else will either.

Why did everyone want her special teas? Why was the mangy cat giving her grief? Was what he said true? A fun, light read that you will enjoy with a banter between the heroine and her familiar.

The questions are why was he pretending to be the attorney and why was he in the shop. Raven is pulled into the investigation and is drawn to the sheriff, Liam. This was a quick, fun read. I really enjoyed the book which was well written. The characters are well-rounded and the small town essence is achieved.

From there the story fills in why there is a rift between her mother and grandmother, who is the dead guy and why is he dead.

If you like to sit with a cup of coffee or tea and laugh out loud a lot plus spend time guessing with a true end of the book to go OH. Then this is your kind of book. There is mystery, fun, family, love, friendship, acceptance, laughter and so much more.

    Cozy mystery that's not too saccharine and a good plot that isn't too predictable. Cozy mysteries difficult because many people make it seem so formulaic and this is not formulaic this is pretty good. The character is engaging she has really emotions and real problems the plot is twisty enough and you have enough characters so that you have to take time to put the puzzle together if you want to know who done it. I won't spoil it for you but it's a good read and I will be getting the next book in Cozy mystery that's not too saccharine and a good plot that isn't too predictable.
