This box set contains Books 1-3 in the Witches of Keyhole Lake Southern Mysteries Series.
Book 1 - Sweet Murder
What's a witch to do when the meanest man in the county drops dead in his coleslaw during her shift at the local barbecue joint? Noelle does what any good Southern girl would do: she flicks a wrist to clean up the mess, then thanks the stars for doing the world a favor. She should have known nothing's that easy.
The Magical Oversight Committee is on her back because she can't keep her unruly little sister in line and the hunky new city-slicker sheriff would like to take her to dinner, except he suspects her of murder. To top it off, her cursed miniature donkey is being particularly calamitous and the old hens at the local beauty parlor are laying bets on her love life.
A skydiving best friend and a bossy, living-impaired aunt become the least of her worries when the killer decides to bump up the plan by bumping her off. Can she figure it out in time to save all that she holds dear, or will Noelle be next on the list of folks who've turned up dead?
Book 2 - Murder to the Max
Granted, being murdered first thing in the morning would make anybody cranky, but when local contractor Max Wheeler meets his unnatural end, he takes it more personally than most.
As any perturbed ghost looking for justice would, he goes straight to the local sheriff to report the crime. That's when Hunter learns there's even more weirdness beneath the surface of his small southern town than he thought. Just when he's come to terms with the fact that he's dating a real witch, he gets a trial-by-fire introduction to his living-impaired citizen population, too.
Cranky ghosts, sticky-fingered vagabonds, and disappearing food keep the gossip wheel churning, but Noelle's about to lose her mind.
Book 3 - Murder so Magical
Keyhole Lake has its fair share of oddballs and ne'er-do-wells, but sometimes even good folks do bad things, right? At first, the crimes seem to stem from desperation or teenage rebellion, but when the president of the ladies' auxiliary is busted stealing church funds, Noelle starts to piece together a pattern that points to a much more nefarious - and magical - explanation.
The infractions go from bad to worse, and to add insult to injury, the sheriff - her beau - doesn't believe her.
Though she has a town full of ghosts and a couple powerful witches on her side, the rest of the town - including her talking donkey - is convinced she's off her rocker. After all, "the devil made me do it" is an expression, not an alibi. The stakes skyrocket when one of the people closest to her is found standing over a dead body holding the murder weapon.
The bad guys are about to find out what happens when you mess with southern witch's family, friends, and talking pets, assuming she can stay alive and out of jail long enough to find them.
If you like laugh-out-loud southern wit, magic, and murder, you'll fall in love with this witchy cozy mystery series!
