My Rating: ⭐⭐⭐⭐


Welcome to Myrtlewood, a quirky town, steeped in magic, tea and mystery…

Life’s a struggle for Rosemary Thorn and her teen daughter, Athena. But their regular troubles are turned upside down after Granny Thorn’s mysterious death. 

Despite her cousin’s sinister manoeuvrings, Rosemary returns to Myrtlewood and the sprawling, dilapidated Thorn Manor. But there’s more to the old house than meets the eye, as Rosemary and Athena soon find out — in a whirlwind of magic, adventure, mystical creatures and endless cups of tea.

Life in Myrtlewood would be bliss if Rosemary could only clear her name in a certain murder investigation, solve the mystery and stay out of mortal peril – for at least a little while! 

A small town with endless secrets, strange activities and a house with a mind of its own. 

If you love mystery, witches, magic and a big dose of humour, you’re going to love Myrtlewood Mysteries Book 1

My Review:

I have to say I was not a fan of Rosemary Thorn, she just seemed too irresponsible and clutzy. She was the only annoyance in this book. I loved the word building. The rest of the characters were great. I especially liked Athena. She more than made up for her mother.

This book had plenty of everything I Love in a good book. A creepy magical house, oddball characters, and mysterious magic and mystery. A perfect combination. I will definitely be reading the next in the series

I received an arc of this book via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. All thoughts and opinions are my own.
