IT TAKES A COVEN by Carol J Perry
A Witch City Mystery #6
When Lee Barrett joins a former student’s bridal party as maid of honor, she expects cake tastings and dress fittings. But wedding planning becomes more peculiar than Lee’s scrying talents could ever predict. There’s a magical baker, a best man with a checkered past, and a talking crow named Poe as the ring bearer. There’s also a kindly old man dead under his apple tree—one of a series of unexplained deaths hanging over the Wiccan community. With witches dropping dead before they even come out of the proverbial broom closet, Lee’s best friend, River, fears she might have somehow unleashed a terrible curse on the city. Now, aided by Poe and her clairvoyant cat, Lee sets out to investigate. Are lives being claimed by vengeful supernatural forces—or by something more shocking?

HUMMUS AND HOMICIDE by Tina Kashian
A Kebab Kitchen Mystery
When Lucy Berberian quits her Philadelphia law firm and heads home to Ocean Crest, NJ, she knows what she’s getting—the scent of funnel cake, the sight of the wooden roller coaster, and the tastes of her family’s Mediterranean restaurant. Things are slow in the off-season, but Lucy doesn’t mind waitressing at the Kebab Kitchen, which has a new hummus bar, with every flavor from lemon to roasted red pepper. But when Heather Banks, the mean-spirited Gucci-toting ex-cheerleader, takes over as the local health inspector and dies just minutes after eating at the Kebab Kitchen, word on the grapevine is it’s homicide, and Lucy’s the number one suspect . . . Recipes included!
