Death of a Neighborhood Witch
A Jaine Austen Mystery

Laura Levine

Goodreads Description

When her faithful feline Prozac unwittingly scares to death a parakeet belonging to the neighborhood’s resident curmudgeon, Jaine finds herself knee-deep in toil and trouble. The cantankerous Hollywood has-been once played the part of Cryptessa Muldoon, television’s fourth most famous monster mom. Now a bitter, paranoid old dame, Cryptessa spends her days making enemies with everyone on the street, and accidental bird killer Jaine is no exception. So when the ornery D-lister is murdered with her own Do Not Tresspass sign on Halloween night, the neighborhood fills with relief–and possible culprits.

My review

I enjoyed this book! It is especially pertinent for this time of year! Jaine Austen mysteries are lighthearted And fun to read. Laura Levine does a great job at forming a hilarious story in the midst of dire circumstances! Additionally, although these books are a series, they can be read out of order. (I read them that way!) So you need not worry. All around this is a book and series I would recommend! It is 262 pages and $12.99 for the hardcover on Amazon.
