by C.C. Dragon
Gypsies, vamps, and weres…these are just some of the people powerful witch Claudia Crestwood and her friends protect. In the city of Hartford, Connecticut—years before Salem, there were witch trials. Now the paranormal coexist with humans, more or less. With the help of her hippie aunt and cousins, her gypsy uncle, and other paranormal friends, Claudia stands on the line between humans and paras—helping to keep the peace.
When a human customer dies after an incident at the coffee shop, Claudia must dig into the case to protect the cafe and the coven. Threats have been made and what’s worse, she’s harboring a hunter wanted by the police in her basement. A hot and powerful wizard starts showing up in the shop when Claudia needs help and is at her worst. Intriguing and annoying… She isn’t sure she can trust him and his reclusive family but it’s time for her to dig deeper into the magical world. RELEASE DATE: 2/21/17

A loyal Chicago girl who loves deep dish pizza, the Cubs, and the Lake, C.C. Dragon is fascinated by mysteries, sleuthing, as well as the supernatural. The southern connection comes in because her sister moved down there and the material was too fun and entertaining not to set a series there.
C.C. loves creating characters, especially amateur sleuths who solve crimes in their spare time. A coffee and chocolate addict who loves fast cars, she’s still looking for a hero who likes to cook and clean…so she can write more!
My Review: I received an early review copy of this book in exchange for my honest review, and after reading the blurb this did not sound like a hardship to me. In this book we are introduced to Claudia a powerful witch in her own right who is doing all she can to make life better for all members of the supernatural community. The book has the perfect blend of fantasy, supernatural, mystery, and suspense. The world building in phenomenal and easy to get sucked into. This book kept me hooked until the very end which I was unable to guess about until I got there, and now I really want to know Claudia's secret. I recommend this book to all cozy paranormal mystery fans. It gets 5/5 stars.
