Overview

The town of Lainwich is a bizarre place. It’s an insular community and home to a lot of strange happenings. It’s also home to the Greensmith family. Rumor has it that they’re a family of witches. The rumors are right.

Rowen Greensmith moved away to escape her crazy family. She has her own place and a job in tabloid journalism. Things aren’t perfect, but she’s hopeful they’ll improve. When Rowen’s Aunt Lydia calls her with news of a murder, all of that is turned on its head.

During the annual Greensmith family yard sale, Rowen’s Aunt Nadine sold a chest that turned out to have a dead body in it. As if that wasn’t bad enough, the woman she sold it to has turned up dead! It’s a juicy story, and once Rowen’s boss catches wind of it, Rowen is put on the case.

Now Rowen is thrown back into the life she tried to escape. Everyone in the town of Lainwich remembers her, even the ones she rather wishes didn’t. The only total stranger is a handsome businessman who’s new to town. Unfortunately, he has motives all his own.

If Rowen wants to save her family, she’s going to have to solve not one, but two murders. First, though, she’s going to have to deal with the police, suspicious locals, and her crazy family. Knowing Lainwich, there’s a decent chance she’s going to have to deal with quite a bit of the supernatural as well. Rowen is about to be thrown into one of the most hectic weekends of her life. She’ll be lucky if she can make it out in one piece.

Novella (approx. 20,000 words). Romance is CLEAN. First Volume of the "Lainswich Witches" Series. It is a standalone (reading further volumes not required to enjoy the book).

A 55 page free tale of a witch family hiding in plain sight in a small town and then she is called home about a murder that happened because of her aunt's yard sale item. A witchy mystery and a romance with ghosts.

Lainswich is a very small town. EVERYONE knows your business. When Rowen gets a panicked call from her aunt, she knows she'll have to go back. Her boss is thrilled because he wants her to report on whatever is happening. Rowen knows this is not going to be an easy trip. Her family is, well, different than most. Knowing she has no choice, Rowen heads to Lainswich. I really love this book. It's a quick, humorous read. The writing is outstanding and the characters you'll enjoy immediately. Ms. Snow is a very creative story teller. She doesn't waste time either. Once you open this book, you will finish it because you'll be curious to know what's going on. The plotting on this story is spot on. Nothing left to chance, Ms. Snow buttons it all down. You'll re-read this book because it's that funny and delightful. This is one to start when you just want a relaxing and easy read. I can't wait for more of this author's work. I'd like to see this series as a TV show. It would be hilarious. I found no issues. I gave this one 5 cheers out of 5 because it's a keeper. ~Copy of book provided by author in exchange for a fair review~

Not up to par. First of all, it's very hard to sustain interest in a plot when the protagonist is not very likable, as this book's Rowan isn't. She comes off as bossy, pushy, ill-tempered and quick to judge, so it's hard to feel any sympathy for her. There also isn't very much background about the family, and their personalities are all similar to Rowan's - suspicious, ill-tempered bordering on rude, and apparently none of them even have jobs or hobbies to occupy their time. They all live in a big house together and...do what? Mostly bicker, I guess. We are never told how the male main character comes to find out his great-grandfather was found in their trunk - the guy just appears one day. Then we are asked to believe that the ghost randomly murders people he comes into contact with, without rhyme nor reason. The great-grandfather's murder is solved - but no mention is made of the other victim that the ghost supposedly killed. I guess the cops just gave up? And finally, we don't find out what happened to the murderer after that person confesses, although one could infer from the epilogue that the murderer was exploited to make a profit in "someone's" new business venture. Yuck. I have read cozy mysteries that feature sisters who are witches and things of that nature, and this book doesn't even come close to competing with them - mostly due to "lack of"... ...lack of character development ...lack of sympathetic characters ...lack of plots that make sense ...lack of explanations for events that occur/peoples' motivations Finally, at the end the author invites the reader to join her book club, in order to read free books and so on. I can't even find this book club on the internet, so I don't know if it even exists anymore, but I will say this: I don't want to read any more of her books, even if they are free.

Pretty good but not great. The characters we ok. It was a little hard to follow who was who and the plot twist at the end was just weird. I'm glad it was free.

I have read all three of raven snow's books and loved all of them. Greensmith Girls is a wonderful fun book that kept my interest and I read it in one sitting. I feel there should be more adventures of this book. I'm sure if others would give this author a try, They would love the stories too.
