Can't-Wait Wednesday, September 27th

Can't-Wait Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted here, at Wishful Endings, to spotlight and discuss the books we're excited about that we have yet to read. Generally they're books that have yet to be released.  

This is my first time participating in this book meme.  I used to post to WOW almost every week until it stopped updating so I'm excited to start again!

I love cozy mysteries.  Especially those with just a touch of the supernatural and a little bit of romance.  I picked up the first book of the Magic and Mixology series last year and flew through the first three books.  They are just light and funny with quirky, likable characters.  The fourth book comes out November 2nd and I'm really looking forward to it.  :)

This is the synopsis of the first book in the series, Hex on the Beach:

Lily Locke has never believed in witches and wizards, ghosts and magic, shifters and vampires— A rising star at a hotshot marketing agency in Minneapolis, Minnesota, all Lily knows is that she’s a PowerPoint guru, an Excel ninja, and a coffee-maker extraordinaire. Not to mention she’s next in line for a huge promotion.

All that changes when Lily’s assistant delivers a strange quiz to her, one titled A Magical Assessment for Normal Folks. With it comes the promise of a land she's never known existed. A land where Lily not only discovers her biological family for the first time, but a place where she can make a difference, change lives, and step into the role she’s destined to fulfill.

But first, Lily must admit she’s a witch. Then, she has to acknowledge that the tall, dark, and mysterious man who offers his help is strictly focused on least, for now. When a body turns up dead and the next target is Lily, she must trust her powers and accept the help of her newfound friends. Otherwise, she'll never survive the trials of the magical island tucked far, far away in the frigid waters of Lake Superior. 

Welcome to The Isle. 

What are you waiting for?
