In The Company Of Witches by Auralee Wallace | Book Review

It’s highly possible that In The Company Of Witches by Auralee Wallace may have converted me into becoming a fan of the cozy mystery genre. You see, I don’t typically pick that genre up. However, the whole witches theme caught my interest. So, I gave In The Company of Witches a shot. And I just genuinely loved it. I found this series starter to be a comforting, low stress read. And well, given how stressful my life is right now, give me all the chill laid back reads please.

Brynn Warren and her two aunts run a bed and breakfast in the town of Evenfall. The three women — plus Brynn’s uncle — are witches. One day a guest dies while at the inn. Foul play is suspected. It is up to Brynn and her aunts to get to the bottom of what happened. Brynn has a magic that allows her to speak with the dead, briefly. However, she has not accessed that magic since her husband died. Now all her magic is building up without having been used. Things are about to go a little haywire. Also, Brynn is going to discover some of the guest – Constance’s family secrets – which are quite messy.

I am sure that this book had all the hallmarks of a cozy mystery. However, those hallmarks are new to me and I am not sure if every book in the genre has them. There was the setting – a small town with some eccentric characters. Then we’ve got Brynn’s aunts who are actively involved. I felt no stress while reading this book, but I also wasn’t bored. If this is what I can come to expect from cozy mysteries then I am so thankful for In The Company Of Witches  by Auralee Wallace for opening my eyes to a whole new genre that just might fight this current season of life for me.
