Kudos for One Potion in the Grave

"Blake is unstoppable! She crafts a story that pulls readers into the book as if they are part of the cast.

I was glued to every page and I kept saying one more chapter, and at the end of every chapter wanting more, more, more!If you like paranormal cozy mysteries you have to read this series.

"An exciting entry in a great series." RT Book Reviews, 4 stars
"This extremely charming mystery has, in its third installment, created a world of magic with a complex, but very coherent mythology that the reader learns along with new-Crafter Darcy. ... This series is full of charm, magic, and delightfully humorous and entertaining characters." Kings River Life Magazine
"The Good, the Bad, and the Witchy is comfortably jam-packed with a most convoluted murderous puzzle, relationships – familial, love, friend – characters who are endearing, exasperating, and oh-so-helpful, and a setting that’s enchanted. I love this series. The reader can have it all within the pages of one book, one series; mystery, romance, paranormal, a tight-knit community of likable characters, and an other-worldly(ish) setting. Heather Blake has gifted the reader with an adult fairy tale, magical, romantic, and paranormal, all wrapped up in a very gripping mystery." Once Upon a Romance  
"What I love the most about this series is that it transports me to such a unique setting, filled with eccentric and magical people. I enjoy learning all about the different types of Crafters. Author Blake is brilliant at creating new Crafters with different specialties and having them all fit together like many peas in the same pod.
With a well-crafted mystery (pun intended), a plethora of suspects, adorable animals, a smart little girl, a dash of romance, a pinch of angst, and magic that doesn't involve eye of newt or toe of frog, "The Good, the Bad and the Witchy" is a spell-binding read." -Myshelf.com
"Heather Blake has written an exceptional enchanting story for all ages. She will have you convinced that “witches” aren’t “witches” after all. They are Crafters. This is a must read, but make sure you have time because you will not put it down."  -Sherri Nemick, Suspense Magazine

Sentimental, but never saccharin, this often harrowing mystery entertains with beloved characters, a deeply moving plot, and an undeniably satisfying conclusion.' -Cynthia Chow, Kings River Life Magazine

"I thoroughly enjoyed this book, it was so good that it was believable, I am definitely going to be getting the other books in this series of Heather Blake’s.
