Charm McCall, armed with a library full of Agatha Christie stories and her unique witchy gifts, knows how to solve a small-town murder…
Charm McCall, the oldest of the McCall triplets by a whole day—or one minute before midnight if one’s being picky—is the designated driver for her whole town. Why, if it wasn’t for her, Snowy Lake would incinerate or fall into Hudson’s Bay. With her unique abilities, she’s all set to keep her family and town safe and on its proper course.
That is, until a hot Mountie moves into town, a busload of strippers breaks down on Main Street and Mrs. Hurst goes and gets herself murdered with poisoned jam. Jam crafted by Charm’s family at the Tea & Tarot café. Now it’s up to her to solve the murders—yes, plural, when another local business owner ends up dead.
Charm knows just what to do. What’s breaking a few laws if she can sleuth out the culprit? She knows the people of Snowy Lake better than any new lawman possibly could. So why can’t he just leave her be to get on with things?
And why does he have to be so darn hot?
Read an Excerpt
“You know, the saskatoon bushes are ripe. Anybody want to go picking later?” I asked, pretty much knowing the answer.
Star groaned the loudest. “I hate mosquitoes. This year they’re as big as dragonflies, I swear.”
“Two words. Bug spray.”
“Yuck. I hate that stuff. I’ll smell like a chemical factory.”
“Better than smelling like a homeless person with no access to soap, which is what we’ll be if we don’t step up our game and bring in more income.”
“We do all right.” Star got that mulish look. “We’ve paid our own way. And I was hoping that maybe I could take a little loan and head to—”
“Absolutely not! Every red cent goes into this café to keep it on a sound footing. Maybe one day we’ll even be able to franchise it, have a string of cafés all across Canada.”
“That’s your dream, Charm, not mine.”
Tulips looked up from working on her blog. “I have one word for you both for making a lot more money—edibles. We could learn how to add marijuana to our muffins, brownies, slices and cookies. And sell them for three times as much. We should perfect the process now, before the October seventeenth deadline and the law makes it legal. We could beat everyone else to the game. Advertise online. If I mention them on my blog, it’ll bring in tons more traffic. In a year we’d all be filthy rich. I’ve been researching how to make cannabutter, proper dosages—everything. Even ganja-bread houses for Christmas. Just say the word and I’ll start the experiments rolling. They’d fly off the shelves like hotcakes.”
“Don’t you mean fly off the shelves like potcakes!” Star quipped.
“No! Absolutely not!” I was equal parts horrified and stunned.
