Book Review: Scones & Tombstones by Trixie Silvertale

Mitzy Moon loves everything Halloween. And she can’t wait to set up an elaborate haunted house to raise money for the local animal shelter. But when her celebrity chef turns up dead, she’ll have to act fast to save the event—and precious lives.

With all the evidence pointing at Mitzy’s favorite patisserie owner, she races to clear her bestie’s name before the cookie really crumbles. But with dire warnings from Ghost-ma and her entitled feline heating things up, the proof might be sitting in a fatal pudding…

Can Mitzy uncover the true culprit, or will this half-baked plan be her last?

Scones and Tombstones is the twentieth book in the hilarious Mitzy Moon Mysteries paranormal cozy mystery series. If you like snarky heroines, supernatural intrigue, and a dash of romance, then you’ll love Trixie Silvertale’s haunting whodunit.


My Review

It’s hard to believe that this is the 20th book in the series. I’ve enjoyed every story along the way, and I hope there are many more to come.

It’s uncanny how murder always seems to follow Mitzy. At least her boyfriend, Erick the sheriff, knows that she’s just a magnet for murders and not a murderer. This time it’s a celebrity chef who is found in Mitzy’s Halloween display of all things!

Mitzy and Erick’s relationship continues to grow. He has even accepted that she has supernatural gifts. And when she wants to have a seance to talk to her dead mother, he’s willing to be there! Mitzy’s mentor, Silas, warns her that a seance could be dangerous, but she’s all in. Will they all survive the seance?

This is an excellent series for anyone who enjoys fun, quick reads with great characters. I’m looking forward to the next one!
