Charms & Firearms, Book Five
Five of five stars given
Mitzy is back! With Ghost-ma, and Silas, and Odell, of course as well as the “delicious specimen known as Sheriff Erick Harper”. There’s trouble afoot in almost-Canada, aka Pin Cherry Harbor. One of Grams’ ancient “occult manuscripts” is missing, and Mitzy’s just agreed to a weekend away with the “divine” Mr Bombay. Her reason? “A fact-finding mission to infiltrate the enemy.” What she finds instead is a hapless photographer’s dead body.
Mitzy never fails to entertain in her insistence on “helping” the yummy Sheriff and getting to the solution. And each time she gets there before I do, with a surprising revelation. But this time, THIS TIME, I was so not prepared for the villain!
Silvertale’s Pin Cherry Harbor is an almost magical place, populated with great people and not a small dose of magic. Each time I return to almost-Canada, I feel welcomed, among friends. And it’s that feeling that keeps me coming back for the next installment. You will too!

Sparks & Landmarks, Book Four
Five out of five stars given
A Book Birthday is the day when a book is available to the public for purchase. For Trixie Silvertale’s Mitzy Moon series, that day is today! Book Four continues the tradition with another action-packed tale. Pin Cherry Harbor is home to some truly loveable characters – I particularly love Pyewacket – so if you haven’t picked up one of the previous books, make sure you don’t miss this one!
While Mitzy is settling in nicely in almost-Canada, there’s a storm brewing – in more ways than one – and it looks like Jacob is right smack in the eye of it. All evidence is pointing otherwise, but Mitzy and Grams are determined to prove her father had nothing to do with it.
As Mitzy sets about unearthing the proof she knows exists, she’s inevitably learning more and more about her special powers, and she’s discovering that Pyewacket has more than a few tricks up his own sleeve.
Don’t miss this latest adventure in Pin Cherry Harbor. With all the usual residents giving advice and teasing in equal measure – and a few surprise baddies with evil hi-jinks in mind – you know this is going to be another great read that is over much too soon! Each of the books in the Mitzy Moon series does well as a stand alone read, but you’ll want to make sure not to miss even one exciting adventure. While I’m always sad when I reach the end of a book I’ve loved, it makes me happy when I know that the next book in the series is in the works!
