Loony Town: Caring for elderly witches at the retirement home in Sunnyside, California is a full-time job for Zoey Rivers. But when one of them is blitzing, causing magic to act even weirder than normal, things get…well, downright wacky.
And when a local insurance agent winds up dead, some of the people Zoey is responsible for become the prime suspects. As the zaniness of the magical blips continues and things get crazier and crazier, Zoey has to work fast and try to stay one step ahead to keep her charges out of jail, figure out who is causing the chaotic blitzing so she can fix it, and also figure out who the real killer is.
It’s a tough job, but she’s determined to do it. The people who live at Sunnyside Retired Witches Community are counting on her. And she’s not about to let them down now.

He turned the parachute-like material over in his hands, examining it closely from all angles before setting it aside. He grinned at her and leaned back on both elbows. “It survived another collision with the earth. Goblins are super tough, you know.”
“Apparently.” She leaned over to nudge his arm with her elbow. “Have you ever seen a real, live one?”
“A goblin? Sure. I watched my mom give a pretty nasty, two-horned one a run for its money when I was about seventeen. It wanted to settle down in the shared green space at the edge of our subdivision, but she wasn’t having it.” His eyes took on a faraway look as he gazed out at the water, which was slightly wavy.”
