Cupcakes, romance, and lovable canines abound in Heather and Sinead’s next adventure, but it isn’t all fun and games. The girlfriends are investigating a very personal kidnapping, and the threatening notes left behind accuse Sinéad and her punk-rocker twin brother of hiding something.
But after solving their first mystery together last Christmas, this one should be a piece of cake.After all, no one’s been murdered this time, and their witch-sorcerer rivalry is a thing of the past.Except it turns out there is a murderer, and a jewel thief as well, and why on earth does everyone keep talking about bees?
It appears Starford is a lot more exciting than Heather’s home town of Old Wetchhaven, and Sinéad’s insistence that Heather move in with her brings a whiff of trouble to their private paradise. Can Heather adjust to life near the big city? Or will the mounting secrets prove too much and turn their second case into their last?
A Hive of Secrets and Spells is a witch cozy mystery with a sweet lesbian romance and heart-warming magic.

Heather drew back inside but left the window open to air the room, needing a break from the stuffiness. Whatever had happened to the Dunnes, they’d likely been gone for several days. That or no one who lived here knew how to open a window.
Despite having no luck with spells that morning, on their way to meet Cian, Heather had recalled the one spell she did have at Sinéad’s house: her jar of revealing powder. It had made its way into her purse after Halloween, when they used it to learn more about the mysterious footprint, and she hadn’t yet bothered to pack it away.
She took out the jar now and sprinkled a little of the powder onto the desk. After a few seconds, it began to shimmer with a blue light. The powder became like a mirror, except it didn’t reflect Heather’s face. Instead, she watched as several coins appeared and faded into the wood beneath them. She peered down the side of the desk; a handful of coins glinted in the darkness.
Well, she had designed the powder to reveal anything hidden away, and it had done exactly that. Just a shame it wasn’t anything useful. She reached over to close the window, ready to leave and join the others downstairs. Several bees buzzed in and around her, and she tried to shoo them out so they didn’t get locked inside.
They swirled through the air, buzzing over the powder and kicking up some of it as they flew. For a second, it looked like the bees glowed blue, but it must have been a trick of the light. Nothing could hide on something as small as a bee.
