A full-length mystery – recipe included!
Maddie, Trixie (her Persian cat who might be her familiar) and Suzanne (Maddie’s best friend) operate Brewed from the Bean, a specialty coffee truck in Estherville, a small town in Washington State.
The local coffee festival has people buzzing – but for all the wrong reasons. When an obnoxious radio personality is murdered, all signs point to Maddie being the culprit!
Maddie, Trixie, and Suzanne are determined to clear Maddie’s name, and investigate their fellow competitors.
But with only two spells under her belt, can Maddie unmask the killer? It will take the combined efforts of the trio to discover who the murderer is – before it’s too late!

Now, twenty years later, she can only cast one spell successfully from the book – the coffee vision spell.
But when she peeks into Joan’s future – one of her regular customers – she sees the middle-aged woman lying dead in the kitchen!
When the vision comes true, Maddie is determined to investigate – with the help of Trixie and Suzanne.
Who would want to kill Joan? Why?
