BETTING OFF DEAD
Book 2 in the Spies and Spells Mysteries
by Tonya Kappes

Released today!


Betting Off Dead. And they're off! Gambling on horse racing is Kentucky's number one sport but when Kentucky Derby Thoroughbred picked to win the Derby, Rails and Nails, ends up poisoned, SKUL special agent Mick Jasper and rookie witch Maggie Park, who keeps her witch powers a secret, are called in to investigate a world of illegal gambling where a run for the roses can prove to be deadly.


MY REVIEW


Author Tonya Kappes has another wonderfully written hit on her hands!

BETTING OFF DEAD, book 2 in the Spies and Spells Mysteries is an absolutely enchanting installment to this fun series. Author Kappes certainly knows how to draw a reader in and entertain them from the first page until the last!

The characters in this series are fantastic! I really clicked with lead character Maggie Parks. Not because I am a witch who was raised by mortals, but because I tended to always see things differently than the rest of my family. Oh, and because I talked to my old car all the time, but mine never answered back like Maggie’s does (it’s her familiar!). Maggie’s Auntie Meme, and their neighbor, Mrs. Hubbard had me laughing out loud with their feuding! And, I have a little bit of a crush on Maggie’s spy partner Mick. ;-)

Clever, funny, exciting…BETTING OFF DEAD has it all. Ms. Kappes is a brilliant writer. She knows how to build a story at the perfect pace. I became more and more engrossed with every chapter. I didn’t come up for air until after the exciting reveal.

Fasten the seatbelts on your reading chair and get prepare for a thrilling ride!  

Click the word party to join in on the fun!


I look forward to seeing you there!
