Win, lose, or draw....

A Westwick Witches Cozy Mystery

Cendrine West can't catch a break. She's close to landing a new job, and things are getting cozy with sexy sheriff Tyler Gates. All that changes when she is kidnapped by renegade witch Aunt Pearl, who is hell-bent on avenging a friend's untimely death. It's Las Vegas or bust...for all the wrong reasons.

Rocco Racatelli is a hunky Vegas kingpin - and the next mob target. Lady Luck has dealt him a losing hand and he wants revenge. When Aunt Pearl is a little too eager to help, project Vegas Vendetta quickly escalates into an all-out mob turf war. As the witches are thrust into Sin City's seamy underworld, bodies pile up and secrets are exposed.

It's not just the Las Vegas heat that's scorching...Rocco is intent on winning Cen's heart. But she only wants the man she left behind in Westwick Corners. All she has to do is solve a murder, out-magic her ornery aunt, and take down the Las Vegas mafia. What could possibly go wrong?

When organized crime meets unorganized magic, anything can happen! As the body count climbs, it's clear that Cen needs more than a miracle in the desert to set things right.

Who killed Carla

Poor Cen. Aunt Pearl get her and her mother mixed in another antics. She kidnaps Cen and takes her and her mom to Las Vegas. Of course she does not tell the complete truth as to why they have to go. This mystery involves a dead friend of Aunt Pearls and whether it was an accidental death or murder. There is mobsters, gambling, shoot outs and mobsters trying to take over another's business. What does all this have to do with Cen, Aunt Peal and her mother? Come along and find out. This book was so funny and had plenty of twist. I look forward to more this this series. I was gifted this book in exchange for an honest opinion. I recommend this series. The narrator did a great job in bringing the characters to life.

Another fun cozy mystery Vegas style!

I love this author so much! She writes such a fun storyline with plenty twist and turns to keep anyone guessing what is really going on! Aunt Pearl is driving Cendrine nuts again! This time she drags Cen and her mom to Las Vegas! There is lots of humor, mystery, suspense, witches, danger, a touch of romance, and plenty action!

Narration is excellent and brought the story to life! Love this narrator!

There seems to be one crazy thing after another going on in this story! Poor Cen, she can’t win with her crazy aunt pearl shenanigans! This time they are in serious danger caught in between a mob war!

There is plenty secrets that unfold as the story progresses. It’s always a rollercoaster ride with Aunt pearl! Such an entertaining ride all the way through.

I love the way things wrapped up and I’m already looking forward to the next crazy adventure with this fun crew!

Is it bad that I want to be aunt Perl when I get older?

Witches in.Vegas. As I dive more into this series I fall more and more in love with the characters. The steady down to earth mother, the outrageous aunt Perl, the young insecure witch main character and all of the others. Nothing is what it seems in these cozy mysteries and I don’t want to change a thing.
The narrator are great as always and really good at changing her voice.
I am looking forward to the next book in this series.

book 2 in the story but can be read stand alone

Rags to Witches is the 2nd book in the Westwick Witches series by Colleen Cross. This is a cozy mystery featuring Witches, Murder, The Mafia and more. The story moves along at a good pace with lots of twists and turns. Petrea Burchard narrates this audiobook. She is great with her different voices, Aunt Pearls voice is awesome. There is no harsh language or sex, but there is some mild violence, after all it is a murder mystery.

Cendrine West has a job interview and a date with the sexy Sheriff Tyler Gates. But Aunt Pearl has other ideas for her. Aunt Pearl kidnaps her for a road trip to Las Vegas. An old family friend has passed away and also unbeknownst to Cendrine it was under questionable circumstances.

When they arrive in Las Vegas they are thrown into a Mafia turf War. It's up to the Witches to find the murder as the body count rises. Hopefully their bodies doesn't add to the count in the mean time.

A Fun Listen

I was given this free review copy audiobook at my request, and have voluntarily left this review. What's more fun than a murder mystery filled with quirky witches. Cendrine is on her way to a job interview when she's kidnapped, by her aunt and taken to Las Vegas. That doesn't sound so bad does it, except there is a mafia turf war happening at their hotel. Lots of action, suspense and humour will keep you listen until the very end. It made my trip go so much faster.

Rags to Witches

A very interesting story. I will be the first to admit that as I got into the storyline I got extremely upset about the Dynamics between Aunt Pearl and her niece. I really hated that the niece let her aunt run roughshod over her. I felt that she was too much a wuss with no backbone. Family or not she should have stuff up for her principles. Regardless, the story was extremely entertaining and fun to listen to. The narrator is very talented and her voice mesmerising!!

FUN!!!

OMG I love these Westwick Witches cozies! This is my second, and I hope there's like a zillion more!
Witches, mobs, and Vegas... now if that doesn't sound like fun, I don't know what does!
Cendrine gets kidnapped by her crazy Aunt and they head for Vegas. It's bound to be an adventure!

Grab a glass of wine, sit by the fire, and LISTEN. It's so fun!
Great story, quirky and fun, great narration, all in all a VERY enjoyable listen :)

A fun and witchy escapade!

Although I enjoyed the book, I believe the audio version of Rags to Witches adds energy to this wonderful tale. It's interesting to hear the difference characters "speak" to each other out loud!
