Trickery of the Witch:Bloody paws lead to murder, dark plots, and lies in Willow Tree Falls.
Tempest is enjoying a quiet life after the chaos of her sister’s failed relationship has settled. Her cousins, Raine and Azura are in the village, and they always liven things up.
In an effort to cheer up Aurora, Tempest suggests she get an animal familiar. A visit to Fur Baby Emporium reveals the wonderful world of magic familiars, but an encounter with a feisty, feral cat leaves Wiggles nursing his wounds.
When the cat shows up again with blood-stained paws, Tempest is on the case. The discovery of a body in Fur Baby Emporium raises a host of questions. Not least, what was her cousin, Raine, doing arguing with the man just before he died?
With the angels getting involved, and Tempest keen to keep her cousin’s name out of it, she starts her own investigation. She soon discovers the bloody pawed cat is anything but average, the man who died was someone important from the Magic Council, and her doubts rear up when she learns her cousin is lying.
“It’s great to have you all here.” Auntie Queenie bustled in and kissed Raine and Azura’s cheeks in turn. “My girls so rarely visit. This is a perfect surprise.” She shoved her way into a seat next to Uncle Kenny and helped herself to a mountain of creamed potato.
“It was Raine’s idea,” Azura said, a mirror of her sister with pale skin and black hair. “She announced a couple of days ago that we were coming to Willow Tree Falls.”
Raine shrugged. “What can I say? I missed you all.”
“Of course you did, darling,” Auntie Queenie said.
“We’re always happy to have you.” Mom hurried around the table, checking that everyone had enough to eat.
“You’ll have to come to Cloven Hoof one night,” I said.
“Definitely,” Azura said. “I love it there. Have you got those mushrooms that make you feel all floaty and giggly?”
Raine nodded, her mouth full of food. “We’ll be there.”
Wiggles’ paws settled on my knees, and he pressed down hard to get my attention.
I peered at him. “What are you doing?”
