Basic Witch: Witches of Salem (Gemma Bradbury Magical Cozy Mysteries Book 1) by Harmony Hart

“Basic Witch” is a delightful Cozy Mystery about a girl, Gemma Bradbury, and her cat, Titus, who fall into a magical world which is inhabited by creatures of fairy tales and folk lore. Gemma finds out through the Witch’s Coven that, not only is she stuck in this strange place, but she’s a witch and Titus is her familiar. If that’s not enough, she is accused of murder by an oaf of an detective. While she’s learning how to use her new skills she, along with her new friends (who are great characters, by the way), try to clear her name.

Ms. Hart has a style and imagination to be envied by other writers of the genre. I truly enjoyed this, sometimes laughing right out loud. I gave this book 5 stars and I can’t wait to read Book 2 of the series.

Harry’s New Years Resolutions

 

It’s that time of year where everyone makes unnecessary demands on themselves, just to trying to make others happy.  Okay, this year I’ve decided to make some changes of my own.  I’ve listed them below not necessarily in any order.

  1. I will cut down the number of trips to the Magic Cupboard (where my treats can be found).
  2. I will stop laying around like an old slug all the time.
  3. I will quit expecting everybody to do my bidding.
  4. I will quit procrastinating.

When do I have to change?  Now? I can’t.  I’m busy laying around the fireplace, getting my guardian to get me treats (and anything else I need).

Oh, heck. Who needs to change?  I’m purrfect as I am.
