Publisher's Summary

Lights, camera, assassin....

A Hollywood movie shoot comes to town and journalist Cendrine West is eager for a scoop. Her witchy family also wants in on the action, but shenanigans with the stars soon turn to Tinseltown tragedy.

Bodies are piling up faster than a coven's worth of curses, and everything points back to Cen's starstruck family. They will stop at nothing in their quest for supernatural stardom, even if that means meddling in a murder investigation.

The witches have created one spell of a mess and given the killer a chance to get away with murder. Cen resorts to her own blend of supernatural justice to keep her family in check, but can she unmask the killer before he strikes again?

Welcome to the wild, wild Wests!

Witch & Famous is for fans of a paranormal mystery, cozy mystery, and wickedly funny witches.

This book can be heard as a standalone mystery, but if you want to know more about the Westwick Witches and their family history, you can start with book one: Witch You Well.

I'm Ready For My Closeup!

Westwick goes Hollywood in this latest chapter of the Westwick Witches saga. Being a witch may be glamorous and fun, but it doesn't pay the bills; so Aunt Amber entices a director to bring his crew to the sleepy town for some location shooting. Murder and mayhem commence. Petrea Burchard provides an amazing range of voices as she narrates this lighthearted and entertaining tale (which is comfortably standalone).

There making a movie here?

Another great book in this series This series just gets better each time i go on an adventure with Cen and her crazy aunts. This book was no exception. There making an action movie in town, Aunt Amber is in the movie, Aunt Pearl wants to be in charge of props, the leading man wants everything his way and then he ends up dead. That is when the fun really begins. Everyone pointing fingers at each other. Then one of the suspects ends up dead. The mayor, Brayden, keeps threatening Tyler's job if he does not find the killer by certain time. So Cen and Tyler have to work together to find out who really did the murders. The narrator, Petrea Burchard, does a great job with each character. I can't wait to listen to the next book.

Witch & Famous

Aunt Amber is in town and for once Aunt Pearl will have a run for her money over who gets all the attention. Of course Amber is as much of a drama queen as Pearl. Amber has brought a movie crew to town to give the town a boost. (Or so everyone thinks). But her friend and costar ends up dead. And Cen’s ex Braden is putting himself front and center demanding Tyler arrest someone for the murder. (Tyler should arrest him for interference of an investigation). I love that Cen gets to work with Tyler to help solve this case since he mostly knows her secrets know. And I was so proud of Cen doing spells this time! I was so nice getting to know Aunt Ambers character. Great job on the narration!

Such a fun listen!

I am loving this series! Aunt Pearl with her antics and what she says has me laughing out loud. I get pulled into the stories of these quirky characters, mystery, and unexpected twists. The narration on this book was awesome, and I loved how each character had their own distinctive voice. I requested this review copy audiobook and have voluntarily written this review. Colleen Cross and Petrea Burchard make an awesome combination. I will definitely listen to more of their books.

Great addition to the Westwick witches cozy mystery series!

I have enjoyed this cozy mystery series so much! I would suggest starting with book one so that you can be well acquainted with the characters. Poor Cendrine, her family is always trying to get in her way or interfere with murder investigations!

Narration is excellent and brings the story to life!

Here you will find crazy aunt Pearl, which is one of my favorite characters! She is a hoot! There is also an annoying ex-boyfriend, ghostly grandma, and an attention seeking aunt Amber! This series is so entertaining and fun with unexpected twists and turns and delivered with lots of laughter!

Excellent Author and amazing narrator! I’m really looking forward to the next book in this fun Cozy mystery!

Hollywood witchy mysterious fun

Cendrine West (Cen) is a journalist and a witch. On the set of a prominent movie being set in Westwick Corner, Cen, who is hoping to write about the filming, gets caught up in a murder during the filming. She investigates the murder while trying to avoid the drama of her aunt trying to get famous.

This is the third book in the Westwick Witches series. It is a light hearted and enjoyable story that you can listen to to escape the stress of life. It was really relaxing and fun listening to it and Petrea narrated very well, i thoroughly enjoyed her character impressions.

Overall, i enjoyed all three books in the series. They were shirt and sweet and a lovey fit for the cosy mystery and comedic genre.

Note: This book was given to me for free at my request and I provided this objective review voluntarily.

Another fun meeting with Cendrine West:)

The Westwick Witches series is entertaining, funny, fast-paced and partly crazy and you can't get enough of it:)

As always, Cendrine has to deal not only with a murder at hand but also - or first and foremost - with her irritating, unstoppable aunts who behave like spoilt teenagers, not 60 or 70 years old experienced witches they are:) And it's not only Aunt Pearl this time; Aunt Amber brings in her antics, too - which makes the whole story even crazier and more entertaining...:) I know, I know, too many "smiling faces" in this review, but I can't help it - the book has made me laugh more than once and I am still smiling thinking about Amber's acting career and Pearl's attempts at "helping" with the prompts on set:)

Ms Burchard continues to do a great job with the series; the pace is good and the voices so well-matched to the characters that I can't imagine anyone else reading the books any more. I've already said it before - I love Aunt Pearl's voice best, she's irritating to the point of me wanting to slap her:) but all the other characters are equally real in this wonderful interpretation of the book:)

When Hollywood comes to town

In this witchy mystery aunt Amber gets a role in a movie and convince the producer to shoot it in their little town. It looks like a great opportunity to bring the town back on the map, but murder put a different kind of limelight on the town.
It’s jet another funny magic story with murder, drama and pyrotechnics.
I truly loves this story and are looking forward to the next one.
The narrator did as amazing job as she has done with the rest of the books.

A Great Listen

I was given this free review copy audiobook at my request, and have voluntarily left this review. Aunt Amber brings a movie crew to Westwick Corners and the future is looking bright for the town and the Inn, until there is a murder on the set. Cendrine is trying to help the sheriff solve the murder despite both her aunts acting even crazier than usual. The sheriff's job depends on solving the case fast and all he has is to go on is conflicting eye witnesses and witches getting in the way. Always lots of fun listening to tales of this dysfunctional witch family, as they find themselves in the middle of another murder mystery. A great listen for travelling.
