First in a new series by Nyx Halliwell! Don't miss out on Ava's adventures as she returns to her small hometown of Thornhollow, Georgia, where mystery, murder, romance, and a little bit of down home Southern cooking are always on tap.
Aunt Willa summons me home to Thornhollow with a cryptic message about using my ‘gift’ to stop a family curse and save the town. Hours later, she’s dead and Mama swears she heard her arguing with someone before it happened.
When I arrive, my clumsiness brings about a near-death experience, and suddenly, I’m seeing and hearing ghosts everywhere. Even Aunt Willa’s cat is talking to me.
Uncovering the truth behind the family curse is hard enough, but my gift makes me a target for an angry ghost who’s trying to ruin the biggest event Thornhollow has ever seen…and she’ll stop at nothing to do it.
I’m convinced my aunt’s death was no accident, and if I don’t acknowledge the fact ghosts are real and I can commune with them, I may never discover who murdered her…or stop the deadly poltergeist now haunting me.
Series info: Avalon Fantome sees ghosts, but lordy, she wishes she didn’t! Returning to her family home in Georgia after her Aunt Willa is murdered, she must take charge of her aunt’s event planning business, live with a shape-shifting cat, cope with small town secrets, and deal with poltergeists, cursed objects, and malevolent spirits…and then there are the townsfolk who don’t want her messing in their affairs. It all adds up to magic, murder, laughter and love.

Then there’s the skeleton my cat Tabby digs up, hidden under the capsule. Lordy, what's next?
When an unknown entity takes the knife and uses it on one of our own, finding the culprit will tax my ghost-whispering skills, as well as put me at odds with multiple suspects. Can I find the answers to the cold case and bring the guilty party to justice? Or will the knife end up buried in my back, and the ghosts of yesterday haunt me forever?

When it comes to magic powers, I hit the oddball lottery. All I have to do is step into people’s shoes and—poof—I instantly learn all the most private things about them, those things they most desperately want to hide from the world.
Naturally, when a woman turns up dead wearing an actress’s very famous—and very cursed—glass slippers, everyone looks to me for answers. I just want to sell soap and candles with my sisters in our family’s shop, but turns out nobody is willing to let me off the hook that easily. And that hook includes going undercover at a swanky ball with one very spoiled prince.
Will donning my party dress and stepping into these cursed shoes lead me down the right path, or will I wind up tumbling headfirst into my grave?

When a healthy young couple die without obvious cause except for my magick potion, the new police chief sets his sights on me. I don't have an explanation for what happened to the couple, I do have a great many insights into the chief. Can I uncover the real killer before he arrests me for murder?
Of Potions and Portents is the first book in the Sister Witches of Raven Falls Cozy Mystery Series. Join a set of magickal sisters as they solve paranormal mysteries that fans of Charmed, Hocus Pocus, and The Good Witch will love. ***Bonus recipes and craft instructions in every book!
I’ll be honest—I long for love and a “normal” social life, just like everyone else. Finding the time—not to mention the right guy—however, is a lost cause. My days are spent cooking up products for the Lotions, Potions, and Herbs line for Conjure, the metaphysical shop I run with my sisters, and my specialty love potion blend is helping everyone else in Raven Falls find romance, while I’m working my broomstick off preparing for the upcoming Beltane celebration.
That is until Tristan McGregor, the sexy chief of police, threatens to shut down my kitchen and accuses me of murder. Two people have died, entangled in—ahem—a compromising position, and covered in my love potion.
On top of that, I discover an unsettling portent about the chief in his tea leaves, and when he steals a kiss after catching me at the crime scene, I try to convince myself it's only because he’s under the influence of the love potion enchantment.
But is he?
With my cursed mockingbird familiar, Hoax, my sassy sister witches, and a whole lot of peppermint tea, I have to solve the mystery before Tristan puts me behind bars. Even so, as the fires of Beltane nip at my heels, introducing the chief to the world of magick could send my chances at love up in smoke.
I’m the witchy version of the Caped Crusader, and I have the red cloak to prove it. This garment has healing powers, but neither it nor my personal magick can treat the injured wolf I find on my doorstep.
While tending his wounds, I discover he’s the stuff of legends—a shifter who also happens to be the new town veterinarian I’ve been anxious to meet. His past, however, is as clouded as his memory. As I teach him about his inner wolf and uncover his deepest secrets, a murder rocks our sleepy town.
All evidence points to a forest creature with sharp claws and big teeth… The full moon is rising, and it looks like it’s up to me to prevent further harm. Can I uncover the culprit behind the killings? Or will I end up a snack for a hungry wolf?

The entire cast of characters were so unique and quirky and really helped bring the story to life.

I’m Summer Whitethorne and I can see the future. Except when it comes to my sisters.
I couldn’t stop an evil entity from taking our mom, and my ‘gift’ feels like a curse since I can’t use it to protect Spring, Autumn, and Winter either. My desire to stay close to home wars with my yearning for marriage and a family of my own someday, but I there’s no way I can leave my sisters.

Hopper is the perfect accomplice in my undercover sleuthing, and while I try to keep him at arm’s length, I’ll admit, I’m head over pentacle for the guy. If only he wasn’t off limits. He’s perfect for me, but I’ve seen his future and know he’s destined to marry another.
When our not-so-covert investigation brings the dark wizard to Conjure’s doorstep, I’ll need my superior charmcasting to avert disaster. With the help of my phoenix familiar, Cinders, can I keep my sisters—and Hopper—out of the dark wizard’s grasp? Or will my gift of clairvoyance curse us all?

I’m astrologist Autumn Whitethorne, and I use the magic of the stars for matchmaking—one look at a person’s birth chart and I can predict who their perfect soul mate might be. My office at Conjure is decorated with pictures of the matches I’ve divined, but in my own life, I’m jinxed. Not even an astronomical dose of Love Potion No. 9 can save me from spinsterhood.
Quinn Harrington, the only man I’ve ever loved, left five years ago, and no matter how many times I read the stars, there’s no hope for a happily-ever-after for us. When Quinn unexpectedly returns to Raven Falls, vowing to mend our relationship, I resist falling under his spell again.
Quinn claims revealing the truth about why he left could put me in danger. Danger comes calling, anyway, when one of my spells leads us to a powerful corporation determined to chase Quinn’s family, as well as me and my magickal sisters, out of town.

This beauty witch has to rescue herself when her hometown gets a close shave with a Scrooge of a thief.
When it comes to hair, my long, silky mane of fairytale renown is the envy of every woman in town. These lovely locks aren't only for looks—they're also the source of my beauty magick!
Unlike another long-haired princess trapped in a turret, the only tower I'm hiding in is one of my own makings. An unprincely royal broke my heart during a Christmas Eve past and left my emotions in a tangled mess.
When a thief steals the angel topper from our town’s Christmas wishing tree, I'm forced out of my holiday funk to ferret out the bandit. Soon I get an unwanted fringe benefit—the return of the pompous prince, and he's determined to help.
No potion or spell will heal my heart, (believe me, I’ve tried), but perhaps working side-by-side with him will. Can I leave my comfort zone and comb the town for the tree's lost topper and the person who took it? Or will my hair tie me—and my prince—up in a fatal end?
I’ve been curious about book aficionado Leo Kingsley since we first met, and it’s not only because I want to check out his famous library. My witchy power is aching to see what his books have to tell me.
But things get really interesting when I find a "normal" book. As in mute. As in not speaking to me. This NEVER happens.
Needing to know what it has to say, I approach Leo, unknowingly setting off a magickal chain of events that lead to a beast of a secret, and I’m not just referring to the wild animals that begin suddenly attacking the townsfolk.
Can I uncover the mystery of who is controlling them and why? Or will this hairy situation be too much for me to handle?
