A bakehouse in the making. A dangerous ghost in the tower. Will their welcome to the neighborhood be short-lived?

Imogen wants nothing more than to complete her sweet dream. With her adoring fiancé Hank at her side, the witch and her friends dive into renovations for their new home and soon-to-be bakery. But all their efforts seem futile when they wake to find the house eerily ripped apart all over again…

As Imogen examines her humble abode’s shady history, she discovers evidence for a malevolent spirit living inside. But with less-than-welcoming neighbors keeping a close, suspicious watch, she wonders if it’s not the dead but the living who pose the biggest threat…

Will Imogen root out the culprit, or will her culinary future collapse under the weight of an unsolved murder?

Eclairs, Scares & Haunted Home Repairs is the ninth book in the charming Spells & Caramels paranormal cozy mystery series. If you like lovable characters, chilling twists, and enchanting adventures, then you’ll love Erin Johnson’s marvelous tale.



My Review

Eclairs, Scares & Haunted Home Repairs: A Cozy Witch Mystery (Spells & Caramels Book 9)Eclairs, Scares & Haunted Home Repairs: A Cozy Witch Mystery by Erin Johnson

My rating: 4.5 of 5 stars

I still find it difficult to believe Erin Johnson has already published nine books in this series over an eighteen-month period. What’s even more surprising is how amazing the entire set of stories have been to date. It’s rare an author can keep your interest for such a lengthy period of time, but Johnson has definitely accomplished that task with the Spells & Caramels Cozy Witch Mysteries. Today, I’m reviewing the ninth one–Eclairs, Scares & Haunted Home Repairs–for a blog tour with Great Escapes Virtual Book Tours.

If you’ve never read the series, here’s what you need to know: Imogen is an American baker who accidentally causes a fire and is visited by someone telling her she’s a witch. From that point on, she’s magically whisked away to a foreign land where her entire world changes. Over each book, she learns more about her magical relatives, the different types of kingdoms, and the trouble brewing for the future. After leaving her fiance’s kingdom mid-series, Imogen and her friends begin remodeling a house only to find out it’s haunted. A dead body in the form of a ghost appears, and neighbors don’t want her to renovate. Who killed the guy years ago? What does a kooky witch in the woods really want from Imogen? When will they get back home?

All these questions are answered in this story because there is only one more left to close the chapter on an amazing series of books. Although it might be a disappointment to see it end, I’m confident the author will pen another brilliant series. If you’ve not read any of these books, please read them in order. It will be worth it. I love the cross between fantasy and realism, magic and reality, mystery and romance. There is a bit of everything with lots to enjoy. Congrats on another successful book!
