Scared Witchless (Bless Your Witch Book One) by Amy Boyles

Scared Witchless (Bless Your Witch Book One)

A witch. A murder. A wedding dress? 
Dylan Apel is having one heck of a summer. She knows her hand-made clothing is special, but magical? Discovering that she's a witch is bad enough, but when Dylan realizes there are folks who’ll kill to possess her witchy powers— that’s enough to make a girl want to hide out in the back of her boutique. Only problem is, Queen Witch is in town, itchin’ to make sure Dylan learns to cast spells, and this witch won’t take no for an answer.

Dylan must learn fast—someone just killed her best client with a poisoned gown meant for Dylan. Was it the tall, mysterious hottie in black, who's suddenly everywhere she goes? After all, the first thing Roman Bane says is he doesn't like witches. Is he here to save her, or kill her? 

Dylan is barely getting a handle on her new powers when she finds herself surrounded by witches bossing her this way and that, local police nosing about, and wary clients—death by clothing is not good for business. And the solstice is coming … a time when witch powers are at their peak. Can Dylan survive the chaos long enough to figure out her new life?   (Summary via Goodreads)

I have found a new series that is a must read! 5 stars just aren't enough for this debut book. 

What is not to love in a cozy full of magic, mystery, and WITCHES! Scared Witchless (Bless Your Witch) is the first book in this magical new series. Started this book and read it straight through. Once you start the author's writing has you wanting to know what is going to happen next and then you are hooked. 

Dylan Apel and her sister Sera own shops in their little town and are doing what they love. Dylan owns a clothing store while Sera owns a scrumptious bakery. They are full of family, hard work, and Magic??? Dylan has been told many times that her shop is magical but little did she know that it is because she and her sister Sera are witches. Although her little sister Reid has no magic she definitely makes up for it in wit and love of family. 

This family is about to get a huge wake up call when the dress that Dylan made for herself ends up killing a customer that tries it on! In steps Queen Witch Em telling the girls they have powers that people are willing to kill them for. WOW! No pressure or anything. Now Dylan must learn her powers quickly before she or her sisters become dead witches. 

These sisters learn a lot about family and their abilities in this great new world created by Amy Boyles. Looking forward to many more adventures from the Apel sisters.
