Want to find out how Holly ended up in Beechwood Harbor?

Holly is having a witch of a day. 

Friday the thirteenth should be a day of paranormal delight, but instead, Holly is fighting off the ghosts from her past—the kind that can’t be exorcised. 

When a strange, hooded figure approaches her with an unthinkable task, Holly is forced to walk the line between light and dark magic, where one wrong step could ruin everything.

A Witch of a Day is the prequel to the Beechwood Harbor Magic Mystery series by Danielle Garrett.

In Murder’s a Witch I was wondering why Holly was banished and here we get those questions answered. It’s the backstory on why her name has been ruined and no one trusts her. 

To sum it all up it comes down to her ex boyfriend and the bad things he got himself into. Of course since they where dating at the time when everything went down. It dragged her down, along with her name. She just can’t get away from her ex and all the bad press. 

In A Witch of a Day things happen again and she has to move out of the Havens altogether where she ends up at Beechwood Harbor, a halfway house for supernaturals.

I enjoyed getting the backstory on Holly and having some of my questions answered. You don’t have to read this prequel to read the series, but it does give some clarification on her situation; since that didn’t seam to be explained in, In Murder’s a Witch

Rated: 3 Stars

    • It was nice to get the backstory on Holly. I kept wondering about it in book one, so this helped. I’m curious to see where the series goes and I liked the Cozy Mystery that happened in Murder’s a Witch (book 1).

  2. This sounds fun and a perfect light read to excape for a few hours. Such a fun title and cover too. I do love cozies.

    • It was a fun cozy mystery. I liked finding out about Holly’s past. It’s not explained in book one though it’s sorta talked about, she thinks about it a few times. I also enjoyed book one.
