This is a paranormal series, I find it hard not to read books that feature cats. Alistair has some unique abilities that add to the tale. There are 3 books in the series. A FAMILIAR TAIL and A FAMILIAR MOTIVE. I am looking forward to the next book

“I want to be really clear about a few things. I do not follow people into abandoned tunnels, even if they are paying me. I do not remove valuable historical documents from private archives, and I do not believe in ghosts. At least, I didn’t used to. My name is Annabelle Amelia Blessingsound Britton and I am (in order of appearance): 1) A freelance graphic artist 2) A brand-new resident of Portsmouth, New Hampshire 3) A witch”

My Review:

In the second book of this series, Annabelle Britton continues to learn about her witches’ heritage.  She is helping her friends at their new store when strange noises are heard. Checking out the building they find a tunnel leading to a door that is locked and appears to go nowhere Trying to open it Annabelle stumbles upon a body. The investigation into the death leads to an old secret. The story is enlivened by the arrival of Annabelle’s Grandmother, Alistair and Leo and Max add much to the adventure. The Coven continues to be involved and lends their assistance. An excellent paranormal story. I am ready for the next book.

  1. Happy Friday!

    My first lines come from a book I will be reading later this month, The Christmas Sisters by Sarah Morgan.

    There are good anniversaries, and bad anniversaries . This was a bad one and Suzanne chose to mark the moment with a nightmare.

    Have a great weekend and Happy Reading!😊📚💖

    that looks like a cute series!

  3. This sounds interesting. That first paragraph really drew me in. 😊 I’m adding this to my TBR list.

  4. Happy Friday! On my blog today, I am featuring a book by Georgette Heyer, “A Civil Contract.” Here, I will share the first line of chapter 10 in that same novel. “Few invitations conferred so great a distinction on the social aspirant as one to Nassington House.” Enjoy your weekend!

    • I am running behind. I still need to check other posts. It has been awhile since I read Georgette Heyer. I probably read this books several times and wouldn’t mind read it again.

  5. The book I’m sharing on my blog is Unblemished by Sara Ella but I’m currently reading called The Road Home by Beverly Lewis. I shared the first line last week so I’ll share the first line of chapter 22 where I am right now: ” The next morning, after the four o’clock milking and a nice hot breakfast, Mimi suggested Harley take a lemon pound cake over to Abram Mast’s for his birthday.” Cake anyone? 😛 (I actually don’t like lemon pound cake though lol).

    I love how whimsical these covers are for the series!

    My first lines come from Melt For You by J.T. Geissenger

    “Top Ten Reasons Why The Holidays Suck”

    I’m featuring Casey L. Bond’s Unlocked on my blog today! Be sure to stop by to catch the first lines of this fairy tale retelling!

  7. Looks like a cute series. I have some random cozy mysteries/paranormal that I like, though I have never read anything involving animals like this one, Enjoy!

    I’m not necessarily a fan of paranormal stories, or stories with witches, but I can see the appeal of stories with cats. I have a black rescue cat, and I’m convinced she can appear out of nowhere. Living with her makes me see why the ancient Egyptians worshiped cats, and why later generations were convinced they had magic powers.

    I’m sharing the very long first line from A Defense of Honor from the new Haven Manor series by Kristi Ann Hunter on my blog today. It was one of those read-in-a-day books 🙂

    I’m currently reading Just Let Go by Courtney Walsh, a romance about a woman wanting to reconnect with the mother who abandoned her years ago. But the first line is from the viewpoint of the hero:

    He shouldn’t be here.
    A diner in some little tourist town in Michigan was no place for Grady Benson, but here he was.

    Have a great weekend!
