Book Review: Coven Mitt – Book 2 in the Widow’s Bay Series

“I wasn’t sure about this plan. Not in the slightest bit. But here I was, sitting around the cauldron with my freshly minted coven.

Strange was the theme for my life lately. Divorce, career change, a move back to my hometown, surviving being smothered by a homicidal drug addict, and kissing a vampire were just a few of the things going on in my life these days. I was also trying to pick paint colours for my kitchen so yeah, crazy busy.

All of this was in the last few weeks.”

(Please note that the quotes I include are from the pre-release version of the books, errors and all. The published version of the books will have the errors corrected.)

So begins Coven Mitt, book two in the Widow’s Bay Series. If you haven’t read my post from last week, please read it HERE before continuing with this post, where I introduce you to the very talented American author – Rebecca Regnier.

Coven Mitt was released late October last year (2018). It continues the story of Marzie Nowak who is trying to get on with her life post-divorce in her hometown of Widow’s Bay. Widow’s Bay, where murders happen, vampires are trying to help with tourism, werewolves are logging, and many other creatures of legend like to congregate. See the blurb from Rebecca’s book Coven Mitt below.

“An icy stretch of farmland becomes one hot property after its owner turns up murdered.

Reporter Marzie Nowak must dodge a hungry vampire, face off with a sexy gypsy king, and rely on her new coven of witches to catch the killer!

Between her job as the only reporter in town, her werewolf home renovation contractor, and her new coven of empty nested witches, Marzie Nowak has her hands full. When a farmer is found dead, the suspects start piling up.

Meanwhile, the population of Widow’s Bay is getting more fang-filled by the minute, with a wild vampire on the loose. Marzie and her friends want to ban together to save the town, but they don’t quite know how! That’s when The Crones step in to teach the new witches some old tricks and how to cast a few snazzy spells. Marzie and her snarky cat Agnes face mayhem, murder, and fifty shades of grey paint swatches in this follow up to Resting Witch Face.

Return to Widow’s Bay where the vampires are sexy, the werewolves are good with power tools, and the witches are trying to manage their hot flashes.

Coven Mitt is the second book in a spellbinding paranormal cosy mystery series. If you like clever heroines, snarky humour, and supernatural small towns, then you’ll love Rebecca Regnier’s bewitching mystery.”

I enjoyed this second book in the series as much as the first and am look forward to the third. The entire series is an amusing, quirky tale involving witches, vampires, werewolves, even trolls! I also enjoy the titles Rebecca has chosen for each of her books. This book is well written, amusing, and full of likable (and unlikeable) characters, many that we can all relate to in some way. A great read for the upcoming holiday season.
