Nineteen year old Mercy Habernackle is a witch gone off the rails. Causing problems with the law in her hometown, she's faced with two options. Go to a correctional institution or get shipped off to witch boarding school, or as her mother prefers to call it, finishing school. Choosing the latter, Mercy's mother, Linda, drives her daughter cross country to the Paranormal Institute for Witches, situated high in the beautiful Appalachian Mountains in cozy, Aspen Falls, Pennsylvania.
Upon arrival, Mercy is faced with cheerful smiles, friendly people, and a sticky sweet roommate who has turned their dorm room into an advertisement for the Pottery Barn. Mercy had hoped her fellow witches would be more like her, dark, dreary, and a little bit self-destructive.
When the murder of a local teenager takes place on the first day of class, Sorceress Stone, headmistress of the college for wayward witches, takes the class on a consulting job to help the Aspen Falls Police Department solve the murder. Mercy and her mismatched classmates find themselves in the heart of the murder investigation and when the body of the murder victim suddenly goes missing and her roommate turns up abducted, Mercy must put aside her feelings of resentment about her gift and put her paranormal abilities to good use.
Throw in a smokin' hot cowboy wizard, a black cat that seems to be stalking her, and a Black Witch and you've got the first book in the Witch Squad Cozy Mystery Series where the twists and turns just don't stop!

The Witch Squad A Witch Squad Cozy Mystery, Book 1 By: M.Z. Andrews Narrated by: Lisa Cordileone This was far better than I ever expected it would be. I expected it would be a teen book and really didn't think it would have the depth I wanted. I tried it and boy was I surprised! This was a true gem! A fun book with the paranormal side, great characters, wonderful plot, silliness, a mystery, side things to keep your mind going, a school of witches and warlocks learning their craft, evil lurking about, and a touch of romance. I truly enjoyed this book and will look for other books in this series. This was an audible book and the narrator was perfect for this book! I loved her silliness when needed and the multiple voices she did so well!!! Great job!
I enjoyed reading this book. I wish Barnes and Noble. .. nook had the rest in this series
A friend of mine suggested that I read this book – can’t believe that, at 65 years old, I’d be reading a “Witch Squad” mystery book! Being a retired school teacher, I’m open to new adventures – and found this book quite entertaining! It’s a fast read and an excellent mystery story. I believe M.Z. Andrews already has me hooked, as I’ve transitioned in to her second book. (Even though the mystery was solved in Book 1, the ending entices the reader to want to read her next book to find out who ….? I won’t say, as I don’t want to give out details – and let others find out!) Thanks for a good read, M.Z. Andrews!
Was a good story. A bit funny and well lively
...with some glaring editing errors. Wrong tense, bad use of plurals, poor grammar and other things that should have been caught. That said, i enjoyed the book and it was a decent mystery.
