Magic Springs, Idaho is the perfect place for Lynn Cahoon’s Kitchen Witch series, and Chili Cauldron Curse is a short novella introducing the series. Mia Malone, the protagonist, takes a week off to travel to Magic Springs to help her grandmother set up the local food bank and get it running again. Unfortunately, Mia finds the body of her Grandmother’s latest new boyfriend, Dorian Alexander; he is a warlock and has been head of the local coven. Mia is roped into investigating since her Gran is the prime suspect. As a side note, Mia’s cat, Mr. Darcy, is acting strange, and it is discovered that Dorian has been transferred by a spell gone wrong into her cat. This is a major problem and so far, nobody has been able to get him out.

Lynn Cahoon is a seasoned cozy author, and her writing is concise and easy to read. She knows how to tell a good story, and this short novella will definitely entice readers to read the subsequent novels in the series. Cahoon also does an excellent job of developing characters, and readers will fall in love with not only Mia, but also her grandmother. The supporting characters are also developed so that they seem real.

As is typical of a good culinary mystery there is a recipe for chili at the end of this novella. It’s easy, and readers can prepare it in just a few minutes before reading this short novella. It’s always fun to discover a new series that’s fun, so this series is recommended.
