About this audiobook

Every town has its secrets, but no one has a secret like hers.

Amber Blackwood, lifelong resident of Edgehill, Oregon, has earned a reputation for being a semi-reclusive odd duck. Her store, The Quirky Whisker, is full of curiosities, from extremely potent sleepy teas and ever-burning candles to kids’ toys that seem to run endlessly without the aid of batteries. The people of Edgehill think of the Quirky Whisker as an integral part of their feline-obsessed town, but most give Amber herself a wide berth. Amber prefers it that way; it keeps her secret safe. But that secret is thrown into jeopardy when Amber’s friend Melanie is found dead, a vial of headache tonic from Amber’s store clutched in her hand.

Edgehill’s newest police chief has had it out for Amber since he arrived three years before from Tennessee. He can’t possibly know she’s a witch, but his suspicions about her odd store and even odder behavior have shot her to the top of his suspect list. When the Edgehill rumor mill finds out Melanie was poisoned, it’s not only the police chief who looks at Amber differently. Determined to both find justice for her friend and to clear her own name, Amber must use her unique gifts to help track down Melanie’s real killer. A quest that threatens much more than her secret …

    I do love this series... It's a cut above the standard cozy mystery...
  • Rating: 4 out of 5 stars
    Amber Blackwood, long time resident of the feline obsessed town Edgehill, Oregon and proprietor of the toy and herb shop the Quirky Whisker, has a secret. Her toys enchant the town's children with their movements and her herbal remedies work better than anything you can find at the pharmacy, almost as if by magic. Edgehills' Chief of Police has always seemed suspicious of Amber so when Amber's best friend Melanie turns up dead and a headache tonic from the Quirky Whisker found at the crime scene, Amber is his prime suspect.Pawsitively Poisonous is the first in Melissa Erin Jackson's Witch of Edgehill cozy mystery series. I wish I could visit Edgehill! Living with four cats and being a tad cat obsessed myself, it would be great fun to visit a town that is cat themed. The murder mystery is fairly straight forward, though Amber has a lot of work to do to solve the crime. She's not the only one in town with some secrets! It's lucky she has magic to help her out and Amber finds herself taking risks of exposing herself as a witch as she works to solve her friend's murder. Amber is likable and I found her sympathetic with how she's become relatively isolated due to trying to keep her witchy powers a secret. I hope she's able to have more friends in the future. The few side characters we are introduced to are also well done for such a short book.This was the purrrfect weekend read. Short, fun, with a good mystery and likeable characters. I am looking forward to future installments and solving more mysteries with Amber.I won a copy of this book in a GoodReads giveaway.
