Sunnyside Retired Witches Community Cozy Mysteries: Books 1-3

Summary

Retired witches solving crimes and taking names.  Zoey Rivers has an unusual job. She's the Chief of Staff at a retirement home, which doesn't sound odd on its own, but when you consider it's a retirement home for witches and other paranormals, the strange factor ratchets up. And, with a facility full of partly senile but still powerful witches, things go hilariously awry fast. Then, you add in some crime capers or even a murder or two and a dozen or so retirement home witches wanting to help solve it, and things can get downright crazy. This audiobook contains the first three books in the Sunnyside Retired Witches Community series.  Book 1: A Bottle Full of Djinn Zoey Rivers has a pretty great job as Head of Staff at Sunnyside Retired Witches Community. She's good at handling the magical messes that are part and parcel of providing a home for elderly (and some slightly senile) witches.  But when the messes turn from slightly sloppy to hugely horrible, Zoey realizes there's more involved than just her residents.  If she doesn't figure out who's causing havoc at the Home, the place might not be standing for much longer.  If you love crime capers with magic, mayhem, and mystery, you'll adore Zoey Rivers and her comical crew of witch retirees.  Please note: This book is a crime caper, not a murder mystery. Book 2: Loony Town Caring for elderly witches at the retirement home in Sunnyside, California is a full-time job for Zoey Rivers. But when one of them is blitzing, causing magic to act even weirder than normal, things get...well, downright wacky.  And when a local insurance agent winds up dead, some of the people Zoey is responsible for become the prime suspects. As the zaniness of the magical blips continues and things get crazier and crazier, Zoey has to work fast and try to stay one step ahead to keep her charges out of jail, figure out who is causing the chaotic blitzing so she can fix it, and also figure out who the real killer is.  It’s a tough job, but she's determined to do it. The people who live at Sunnyside Retired Witches Community are counting on her. And she’s not about to let them down now.  Book 3: Mummy Issues Sunnyside Retirement Witches Community gets its fair share of visitors. Some of them like the entertainment and others enjoy volunteering. But when one of the sight-seers ends up dead, Zoey Rivers has to figure out what happened.  The residents come up with a fantastic idea: Since the retirement complex seems to have more than its fair share of murders, they figure it might be a good idea to have a psychic on staff.  So, Zoey hires Iris. And all the information she pulls from the ghosts of the growing list of victims points to Zoey herself as the most likely culprit.  Except the clues aren't pointing to her. They're fingering someone she'd thought was long dead.

Things are already going sideways for Zoey Rivers. Her mother, recently back from the dead, isn’t responsive, and Zoey’s dad isn’t making matters easier.

The police detective seems bent on fingering a resident or staff member for the crime. Can Zoey figure out what really happened to Iris, bring her mom back to lucidity, and save her residents before something worse happens to all of them while juggling a brand-new romantic relationship?

They’re clean, zany stories full of humor and good feelings.

Famous Modern Ghost Stories

Summary

Ghosts have always haunted literature, and it seems that they always will. Spectres seem never to wear out or to die, but renew their tissue both of person and of raiment, in extravagant fashion, so that their number increases voluminously and continuously.  Today we have ghosts that haunted our ancestors, as well as our own modern revenants, and there appears to be no earthly use trying to banish or exorcise them by such a simple strategy as refusing to believe in them. Since man knows that whether or not he has seen a ghost, presently he will become one, and thus he has become fascinated with the subject. Therefore he creates ghosts, not merely in his own image, but according to his dreams of power. Contents 1. Introduction - "The Imperishable Ghost" by Dorothy Scarborough 2.
