Description

Nineteen-year-old Mercy Habernackle is a witch gone off the rails. Causing problems with the law in her hometown, she's faced with two options. Go to a correctional institution or get shipped off to witch boarding school, or as her mother prefers to call it, finishing school. Choosing the latter, Mercy's mother, Linda, drives her daughter cross country to the Paranormal Institute for Witches, situated high in the beautiful Appalachian Mountains in cozy Aspen Falls, Pennsylvania.

Upon arrival, Mercy is faced with cheerful smiles, friendly people, and a sickly sweet roommate who has turned their dorm room into an advertisement for the Pottery Barn. Mercy had hoped her fellow witches would be more like her, dark, dreary, and a little bit self-destructive.

When the murder of a local teenager takes place on the first day of class, Sorceress Stone, headmistress of the college for wayward witches, takes the class on a consulting job to help the Aspen Falls Police Department solve the murder. Mercy and her mismatched classmates find themselves in the heart of the murder investigation and when the body of the murder victim suddenly goes missing and her roommate turns up abducted, Mercy must put aside her feelings of resentment about her gift and put her paranormal abilities to good use.

Throw in a smokin' hot cowboy wizard, a black cat that seems to be stalking her, and a Black Witch and you've got the first book in the new Witch Squad Cozy Mystery Series where the twists and turns just don't stop!

Witches, A murder, Evil, Mystery, Warlocks too!

The Witch Squad
A Witch Squad Cozy Mystery, Book 1
By: M.Z. Andrews
Narrated by: Lisa Cordileone
This was far better than I ever expected it would be. I expected it would be a teen book and really didn't think it would have the depth I wanted. I tried it and boy was I surprised! This was a true gem! A fun book with the paranormal side, great characters, wonderful plot, silliness, a mystery, side things to keep your mind going, a school of witches and warlocks learning their craft, evil lurking about, and a touch of romance. I truly enjoyed this book and will look for other books in this series.
This was an audible book and the narrator was perfect for this book! I loved her silliness when needed and the multiple voices she did so well!!! Great job!

Delightful light mystery and coming of age

The adventures of the Witch Squad entertain those of us who remember coming of age. Not quite fully formed witches replace our awkward adolescence, without the actual angst. I think those who just are coming of age will enjoy it too.

Cute Cozy Mystery

Very well written cute witch cozy mystery. I loved that each of the characters was different and how they worked as a team to solve the murder.

The narrator gave an excellent performance. I would have liked a little more voice differentiation between characters but when there are 5 or 6 girls that are all around the same age, (often in the same setting) I imagine it must have been difficult to pull off. I was able to tell who was speaking mostly and didn't really have to rewind to figure it out. Otherwise, I thought it was perfect.

I received a review copy at my request and have voluntarily left this unbiased review.

A Cozy Mystery for All

This is a young adult/coming of age cozy mystery but written well enough to entertain us adults too. I wasn't really sure what to expect but found myself thoroughly entertained. The story is well written with adventure, suspense, twists & turns and a touch of romance. This is a clean story, so the younger crowd interested can read this with no problems. The narration is wonderfully done. Lisa Cordileone really did a great job with the many voices and their emotions. She really brought the story to life and easily pulls the listener into the story from the very beginning! A great and fun story good for all to listen to. I look forward to the next installment.

Brilliantly Fun Witchy Mystery Series

A little reminiscent of Harry Potter type of theme... but in America, modern, and at a Girls Witch College...they do however share common grounds with the All Male Wizard College so it's not all bad. ;) Throw in a local murder investigation and you have all the ingredients for a great story. The narrator for this book was a perfect fit and she makes it even more fun to listen to. If you like cozy mysteries with a fun fantasy twist then you'll love this book and although it is geared towards the young adult crowd it was clean enough that I would be ok with my middle school daughter reading it and I think the older adults will still really enjoy it too.

Entertaining witchy murder investigation...:)

'The Witch Squad' is a great introduction to a new series of 'paranormal' cozy mysteries - it's fast-paced, intriguing and fun, and it has a group of main characters that will bring a smile to your face more than once:)

Mercy, rather an outcast in her home town, starts over in a new school and right from the start nothing is what she expected it to be; she almost unwillingly makes friends with not only her roommate but also other girls in her year and, even more unexpectedly, they all get involved in a murder investigation. Mercy is also forced to use her powers, which so far has only caused problems for her, and suddenly she becomes the leader of the Witch Squad... and all this within the first week of school:)

The plot is great - it keeps you guessing along with the girls, takes you through some good twists in the murder case and involves some really impressive (and useful:)) magic. It also has a talking cat - which is a nice touch:) Both main and secondary characters are memorable, well-portrayed, yet with enough room to be further developed in the next books in the series.

Narration by Ms Cordileone is almost perfect; the voices are very well done, emotions conveyed clearly and convincingly. It's a very good interpretation of the book:)

Noooo there is a cliffhanger!

I really enjoyed how this story flowed. It grabbed me and sucked me in right from the start. I'm not a fan of cliffhangers. The narrator did good though something's could be improved upon in establishing identities for the different characters. I look forward to the next book in this series.
