Once Wicked

(The first book in the Teas and Temptations series)
A novel by


A witch in hiding.

An innocent spell.

Let the mayhem begin.

Hazel Hardy knows she shouldn't tempt fate, but she's desperate and... hello, cheap real estate. Her family's fears don't stop her from opening a teashop in the quaint New England village where the townsfolk once drowned her ancestor for being a witch. Unfortunately, times haven't changed... much, anyway.

No worries. She swears she won't stir up trouble... in a cauldron or otherwise. But then her customer's husband turns up dead. Whispers of "murderous witch" point toward a seemingly innocent girl, and Hazel can't resist poking her nose where it doesn't belong.

Real trouble shows up when she meets the charming police chief, who doesn't like witches and who doesn't hide his attraction to her. Worse, she's brewing a crush on him, too, and she finds she adores searching for clues to help him solve the case. She convinces herself she'll be fine as long as they find the murderer before she accidently uses magic again or before he notices the crazy cat from her grandmother's haunted house that's stalking her.
