SUPER SERIES ALERT!!!!! Crystal Beach Paranormal Cozies by Karen McSpade Books 6 & 7

Witch Under Pressure–Book 6
3 stars. Book six in the fun Crystal Beach series. Sidney and Ada-Mae buy weird statues (that may be magic!). One is stolen leading our intrepid characters into another madcap story. Racing from the beach to a Witch Academy, this novella is tons of fun. We learn more about Sidney and her family. The cutie pie cop is back for more lighthearted romance, and there are cats! The same characters (family/friends/retirement home residents/townspeople) show up to advance the story or do mysterious things. Nothing gross or violent, just well done paranormal cozy mystery. This is a nice little series that flows an overall plot from book to book of Sidney and learning to use her magic powers. This book starts a new story arc so we get some backstory and a new magic dilemma for Sidney to figure out.

Witch in the Middle–Book 7
3 stars. Book seven of the continuing story of Sidney and her wacky crew of family and friends. Solving mysteries in super fun Crystal Beach and learning to use her ‘witch powers’. And there are cats!! In this book, Sidney works with her grandfather (dead-he’s a ghost!) to figure out more about the mysterious statues from book six. Are they connected to dangerous magic? Why is weird housing development Mystic Dunes suddenly full of people? Most importantly, will she be able to pull off an awesome surprise party for grandma Ada-Mae? I really like this little series, more a set of novellas that continue the story. They are fun, well plotted, the characters are quirky, and there is just enough perfectly reasonable magic to keep it interesting. Watch for bundles or box sets, the series is perfect for curl up & binge reading!

I received copies of these books-this is my own opinion.
