#BookReview for The Wonkiest Witch by Jeannie Wycherley

Thanks for this lovely review! 😘

Pink Quill Books

My review for The Wonkiest Witch: Wonky Inn Book 1 by Jeannie Wycherley, 5/5 stars.

I loved this book right from the beginning. The writing style is fun and relaxed, and the story draws you in. After reading a lot of dark psychological thrillers lately, this was just what I needed!

The protagonist, Alfhild Daemonne, has denied her witch powers for years. But after inheriting a wonky inn and most of a village in the middle of the countryside, she decides to leave London and start a new, quieter life.

Like most plans, nothing goes as expected and she finds herself in the middle of a battle between good and evil, with her inn at the centre.

This is a wonderful cozy mystery, with great characters, a beautiful setting, and a couple of twists along the way. I look forward to reading the rest of the books in the series…

It’s been a while since I had an Audiobook here so yay for this one. Which is going to be SO much fun!

The Audiobook is The Wonkiest Witch (Wonky Inn, Book 1) by Jeannie Wycherley, narrated by Kim Bretton, and it’s a paranormal, cozy mystery.

Alfhild Daemonne has inherited an inn. And a dead body. Estranged from her witch mother, and having committed to little in her 30 years, Alf surprises herself when she decides to start a new life.

She heads deep into the English countryside, intent on making a success of the once popular inn. However, discovering the murder throws her a curve ball. Especially when she suspects dark magick.

Additionally, a less than warm welcome from several locals persuades her that a variety of folk – of both the mortal and magickal persuasions – have it in for her.

The dilapidated inn presents a huge…

Crone BragI have a very long and ever-growing “To Be Read List”. Many months ago I added a book called Crone by Jeannie Wycherley after she graciously agreed to be spotlighted on this blog for Women in Horror Month, read that post here.  I was just about to read Crone when I saw on FaceBook that Jeannie was releasing a new book. With an interesting premise and amazing cover, my attention was hooked, and I began reading the second it hit my iPad.

I am now a devoted Jeannie Wycherley fan. I tossed my current Stephen King read on the floor of my office and read Beyond the Veilevery chance I got. My family had to eat pizza and hot dogs for a couple nights because I Could. Not. Stop. Reading. And I’m not even the least bit sorry.

An unlikely trio, a cop, a near-death experiencer, and a…

“Women in Horror Month (WiHM) is an international, grassroots initiative, which encourages supporters to learn about and showcase the underrepresented work of women in the horror industries.

An Interview with … Jeannie Wycherley

🙂

Books and Wine Gums

Crone BRAGToday’s guest at Books and Wine Gums is the wonderful Jeannie Wycherley, author of Crone (published by Bark at the Moon Books).

Tell us a little about your debut novel, Crone.

Crone centres on two very different women. Heather Keynes is a bereaved mother. Her teenage son was killed when the car he was travelling in hit a huge oak tree on a rural road. Max had survivable injuries but he didn’t make it, and Heather can’t understand why, or move on with her life. Aefre, the crone, is a shape-shifting soul-sucking seductress, a foul witch, ancient and fearless. She periodically sleeps for great lengths of time, but now she’s awake and she wants to garner her strength, and liaise with her evil sisters.

When there is another accident at the same bend in the road, Heather goes to the scene and what she finds there sets her on a…
