Steeped to Death (A Witches’ Brew Mystery)

We rated this book:


Phoebe has received quite the inheritance from her aunt with a mansion, store, and even an adorable cat. She never expected part of that inheritance would be uncovering secrets her aunt kept from her, which leads her to a discovery about herself. When a body is discovered in front of the store, she’s sent spinning in circles after a killer and reconnects with an old friend.

The story is a delightful fresh of breath air with a small town setting and busybody characters with eyes set on claiming Phoebe’s inherited properties. Inheritance is a prominent theme in Phoebe’s life with a shop, home, and magical qualities. Between dealing with a busybody and chasing a killer, Phoebe has a lot on her plate, which are elements that pair well with solving the mysteries her aunt left behind. Her aunt is a strong presence within the story despite her death, thanks to letters and memories left with Phoebe. Her vivacious spirit is one of the main ingredients of the story’s charm and makes it easy to relate to her. Steeped to Death blends the perfect brew of mystery and magic with hints of romance, charm, and a cat named Bob.
