Title: Witch Cake Murders
Author: Zoe Arden
Genre: Cozy Mystery
Witches and humans have always existed peacefully in Sweetland Cove... until now.
Someone is killing humans and drawing unwanted attention to the supernatural residents of Sweetland Cove.
Ava Rose just turned twenty-one, and with her birthday came a few surprises.
One: she's a witch.
Two: she's part owner of a magical bakery she never knew existed.
Three: Someone wants her dead.
The day Ava arrives in Sweetland Cove, murders begin occurring…
Witches and wizards are quick to blame her, but Ava's aunts won't let the town they love turn against her.
But murders follow Ava everywhere.
Soon, she finds herself on the receiving end of the killer's mad spree. With a crazy wizarding sheriff who wants to lock her up, and an even crazier wizarding detective who wants to lock her whole family up, Ava must solve this case alone.
But as the days pass and the only clues point to her, Ava starts to wonder if maybe the sheriff is right.
Maybe she really is the killer.
The only thing Ava knows for sure is that the witches of Sweetland are not happy with her. Especially those witches who have something to hide.
And they all have something to hide.
Can Ava stop the killer before they strike again... even if that killer is her?
Witch Cake Murders is available at Amazon.
About the Author
It was from reading Agatha Christie’s mystery books that inspired Zoe to write cozy mystery novels. Zoe liked the fact that cozy mysteries are able to offer readers a form of escapism that typical detective stories can’t.
Like what Marilyn Stasio, who has been the Crime columnist forThe New York TimesBook Review since the late 1980s, recently wrote: “The abiding appeal of the cozy mystery owes a lot to our collective memory, true or false, of simpler, sweeter times.” It is Zoe’s desire that her writings will evoke that nostalgic memory in all of us; those memories of the good old days.
What sets Zoe apart in her writings is her fusing of Mystery with Paranormal elements, a combination which will bring about fantasies that are intriguing and engaging. Her stories contain unexpected twists and sometimes light-hearted moments that will make one smile at Zoe’s quirkiness, fun and wittiness in her writings.

I enjoyed every second of this book. It wasn't too heavy and not at all too light, it fits right in the middle and that is a great balance! There's a bit for everyone here, from mystery readers to paranormal readers. The writing kept me hooked and the characters made the time reading this well worth it! I had fun in Sweetland Cove and I know you will too!
