In Cassadaga, Florida, the paranormal is normal and chats with the dead are an everyday occurrence.

Lynn is unaware of the town's psychic connection when she drives into town for a visit with her aunt. But strangeness turns dangerous when the president of the Psychic Society is murdered after being cursed by a coven of witches.

Now Lynn has to keep her aunt from being accused of concocting a poisonous brew while discovering who the real murder is. Should she be suspicious of quiet, reserved Alex who doesn't seem to fit in the town or young, gentle, Patrick who is in danger of being restricted from giving his tarot readings?

Are the Society member's attempts to solve the murder through psychic methods going to yield results or just more victims?

TEA AND WITCHERY is a cute, light and easy murder mystery with a cast of quirky, colorful characters. And it does keep you wondering and guessing till the end.

Lynn goes to stay at her Aunt Anthea in Cassadaga, Fl. She needs to reevaluate her life after the death of her husband and the loss of her job.

Aunt Anthea is a herbalist and part of the "society" of psychics that live there. Membership to join is granted by a vote of the board. Members of the society include Carl, the first to die. Lisle, the second to die, after communing with her angel guides about whom the murderer of Carl is. Then there is grumpy Myra, whom I loved to hate, who thought that everything regarding the society should be done her way. There is Joshua, the elder statesman and author. Rafael the inn keeper, his young partner, Patrick, who has problems with the society and his membership in it. George, an old high school friend of Lynn's, who is doing anything and everything to get a membership into the society.

Other psychics are Luke, who meditates to protect the society and his wife June. Then there is the mysterious Alex, who no one can quite figure out what he's doing in Cassadaga. Except Patrick, who divines through his tarot cards that Lynn and Alex are a love match. But what is Alex keeping secret? Add a few local merchants, a few witches from the local coven and the police to this mix. Everyone seems to have their own agenda. Then watch them all chant, mediate, sťance and otherwise stumble their way to solve these murders.

While this was easy to read, the start did take a bit. There were almost too many characters introduced at the beginning. So sorting them out took some time. Also, the characters didn't have as much depth as I thought they could have, relationships between them were more on the surface than showing any real connection. Otherwise, TEA AND WITCHERY is a fun read that I enjoyed.
