A fatal case of school spirit . . .
Kailyn Wilde, owner of the Abracadabra potion shop, feels some dread anticipating her ten-year high school reunion at the new hotel in New Camel—but it turns out even worse than she feared. Running into her very first boyfriend is pleasant enough. Chatting with Ashley—who still can’t let go of a tragedy that happened on prom night—is a bit more uncomfortable. But the worst part comes when one of Kailyn’s oldest friends is found dead in the ladies’ room.
Soon this upstate New York town is in an uproar. And with some help from time-traveling wizard Merlin—who has adopted an unusual and alluring creature as his familiar—it’s up to Kailyn to identify the alumnus most likely to commit murder . . .

Guest Post!

    Matilda here, also known as Aunt Tilly to my dear niece Kailyn Wilde. I was never blessed with children of my own, but she cares for me like a daughter would. She’s all I have since my sister and mother passed away - not counting Isenbale, my Maine Coon familiar, or a certain ancestor by the name of Merlin, who literally fell out of the ether one day. He was quite elderly at the time and half daft. I assumed responsibility for him. It was the least I could do to help Kailyn, who was struggling to run the magick shop on her own after the sudden passing of our relatives. Keeping the old wizard out of trouble in the twenty-first century with all its wonders has been harder than herding cats, if you know what I mean.
    With all this going on, I’m now trying to plan a great celebration. I can’t say more about it or Kailyn will have my hide. She doesn’t want me to be a spoiler for the fifth and final book in the Abracadabra mystery series, This Magick Marmot. In any case, you don’t have long to wait. The book will be released On April seventh, and you’ll be able to find out for yourself.
      I really shouldn’t be chattering so much – I have a ton of baking to do. I’m in such a tizzy. Perhaps I should change my name to Aunt Tizzy! Not only am I baking for the party, I already bake every day for the tea that follows a reading at my shop, Tea and Empathy. I may not be as multi-talented a sorcerer as my niece, but I am a world class psychic and baker, if I must say so myself.
    Yesterday I was so busy doing six things at once that I burned an entire batch of my famous Linzer tarts. All that scrumptious, buttery pastry was ruined beyond redemption. I’d only left my shop for two minutes to chat with Lolly on the sidewalk outside her candy shop. Well –it’s a good thing my shop has a connecting door to Kailyn’s magick shop. She smelled the smoke and raced lickety-split through that door. With one incantation she snuffed out the fire that was erupting in the oven. I don’t know what I’d do without her. She made me promise to take time out every couple of hours to sit quietly and recite a calming, centering spell she created just for me, and to buy a good loud timer.
    Ever since the dear girl decided to investigate the first murder case in our little town’s history, she’s brought more excitement and adventure into my life than I experienced in all my previous years. I always get to assist in her investigations. Oh the times we’ve had!
When you add to that all of Merlin’s misbegotten adventures that keep us on our toes, the second half of my life is turning out to be fuller than I could ever have anticipated.


About the Author


Sharon Pape describes her writing career as having two stages. Back in the dark ages, before computers were in every household, she had three paranormal books published. The first one was condensed by Redbook Magazine, the first paperback original they had ever condensed. Around the same time, Redbook published her first short story.
Then life brought her an unexpected challenge that went by the name of breast cancer. When her treatment was over, she became a volunteer for the American Cancer Society’s Reach to Recovery Program and went on to be the program’s coordinator for Nassau and Suffolk Counties on Long Island. Several years later, with the help of her surgical oncologist and two other survivors, she started her own not-for-profit organization to provide information and peer support to newly diagnosed breast cancer patients.
Once the organization was running smoothly and didn’t require as much of her time, she returned to her first love – writing. During this second stage of her career, she’s been writing cozy mysteries with a paranormal twist and a splash of humor.
