Full Moons, Dunes & Macaroons: A Cozy Witch Mystery (Spells & Caramels) by Erin Johnson


About the Book

Cozy Mystery 5th in Series Self Published 
Print Length - 248 Pages 

The big day has finally arrived, and Imogen, Iggy and the bakers head to the Fire Kingdom for Hank and Shaday’s wedding. Imogen is totally fine with it—or so she keeps telling herself. Even the murder of a famous wedding guest can’t stop the impending nuptials. So when Imogen’s repressed feelings magically ruin her baking and she’s banned from the kitchen, she sets herself to finding the killer. Her search leads her through the desert kingdom’s bustling marketplaces and the maze-like raid, to discover underground movements, shady characters, and more secrets about the people around her than she thought possible. Could the killer be the clever journalist or the rebellious palace maid? Perhaps it’s a member of the royal family. With the Fire Kingdom’s people churning for change, a mysterious artifact missing from the museum, and a dastardly plot brewing, Imogen begins to feel the heat. When Horace contacts her and makes her a tempting offer, she struggles to choose between him and her new friends. Imogen’s choice will have enormous consequences over a deadly plot that threatens the people she loves. Will she stop a killer and find a happy ending in the process? Or will an ancient legend come to life and destroy them all?

 Review: I have been keeping up with the Spells and Caramels series from the start. These books are really getting better with each book. This series is one you have to read from book 1, because though there's not a cliffhanger ending, the next book picks up where the last leaves off. This series is totally about continuity.

This book starts in the Fire Kingdom as the wedding of Prince Hank and Shaday is approaching. Its kinda hard to think of that when Hank is Imogen's boyfriend. Her emotions screw up her baking and get her banned from the kitchen as a result. Poor Imogen.

She is also getting to know her brother Horace, who just happens to be one of the most wanted criminals all the while trying to find the killer of Shaday's friend's father. Shaday being the princess who happens to be marrying Hank.

So there's a lot going on in this book and Imogen is learning more and more about herself and even about her brother. There's less with Hank in this book because of the wedding preparations.

The ending is action packed and has a lot of "wow!" going on.

All of this makes for a fabulous read.

I can't wait to see what happens next to the crew.
