    Murder 101 is the mini-novella between the first and the second books in the Kitchen Witch series written by Lynn Cahoon. I've read the prequel and the first book, so I had to catch up on this one before I could read the latest being released over the summer. If you're a fan of witches, Idaho settings, and playful stories, you'll enjoy this one, just like me.

I've read the prequel and the first book, so I had to catch up on this one before I could read the latest being released over the summer. If you're a fan of witches, Idaho settings, and playful stories, you'll enjoy this one, just like me. Mia's opened up the remodeled school building and she's secured her first major client -- a reunion of a graduating class from over 30 years ago. What she didn't realize at the time was that it's her mother's class, and her mother's former friends have descended upon Magic Springs. Grans loves her daughter, but since she gave up magic, the two don't see eye to eye anymore. Mia's caught in the middle, and then, when the hostess of the class reunion is found dead, the whole past comes flooding forward. What happened to a member of their class who died years ago? Why did Mia's mother drop out of one school and enroll in another, including change her name? So many little diversions to resolve. In the end, I enjoyed the story. There is very little magic in the books so far... it's all about a couple of people with powers but they never use them. I like this balance, as I understand the rules. I look forward to reading the latest in the series which comes out in July... I got a copy from NetGalley, and I'm ready to dive in, but I'll wait until July 1st at least, so I can keep my rotation of about 30 series right now all in line!

    I love the setting for this series being in an old private school, and it just the right kind of spookyish vibe for a murder set at a class reunion. Even readers who've not read the first novella or first book could easily follow along, since there's enough brief explanations, but I think it'd be lots more fun to start with the first novella, then the first book before this. The murder was solved fairly quickly due to this being a novella, and the whodunit wasn't a huge surprise once someone els I love the setting for this series being in an old private school, and it just the right kind of spookyish vibe for a murder set at a class reunion.

The murder was solved fairly quickly due to this being a novella, and the whodunit wasn't a huge surprise once someone else was cleared. I liked that Mia's mom came to the reunion and even though she didn't get along with Grans, it seemed as if they might have actually been talking. It did leave it open for something to happen though, so now I'm anxious as to when this something is actually going to happen. I read and reviewed an ARC of this book provided by the author, and my opinions are my own.

    Reunions can be murder. Mia, the owner of an old high school that she's turned into an event center and catering business, is hosting a class reunion of it's previous students. Nothing's going as planned, nosy ex-students won't stay away from the restricted areas, and someone had the gall to kill the reunion leader. Reunions can be murder.

    This was a great novella in a new series by Lynn Cahoon. I was fortunate enough to win this book from Goodreads, and while I have read other books by Lynn, I hadn't started this particular series. Mia Malone is a kitchen witch who has moved back to Magic Springs, Idaho, to open a catering business after breaking up with her old boyfriend. (That story was covered in book one One Poison Pie, which I have just ordered.) Her current job is catering a high school reunion, and that becomes a murder sce This was a great novella in a new series by Lynn Cahoon.

Mia's business is just getting started, and she can't afford to lose her business or her life because of the murder. Talk about incentive!! As I mentioned, I did win this book, and enjoyed it so much that I've ordered both the first and pre-ordered the second! I've written this review because I feel other readers of paranormal cozies would love this series too!

    I received a Kindle copy as a GoodReads giveaway. A short, fun cozy read. I haven't read other books in the series and was a little mystified about things that were possibly explained in the previous book(s?) - Mr. Darcy/Dorian - say what?! But the author provided enough background information on these unusual happenings that I was able to follow the plot in this book. I'd like to read more in the series.

This story revolves around a mean girl and the possibility that an old enemy might have done her in. Pretty interesting story but I wish this had been longer. I am sure there was enough meat in this storyline to make it a full fledged novel. I just felt like it was over before I could wrap my head around what was going on. Definitely interested in continuing on with the Kitchen witch series. Totally invested already. I mean it is Lynn Cahoon, so I will be there no matter what. Love that gal’s writing.

    What was that??? A short and obvious story followed by a part of a story with a link that didn’t work (presumably telling us how to get the rest of the story) and an add for another book. Not what I thought I was getting when I picked this book. It’s a rip off.
