I picked up the first book in the series when the author gave it away for free on Amazon, and was immediately hooked by this charming series. So when I got Kindle Unlimited for 3 months, I made it my mission to read all 8 books!
Alf is such a lovable character, and as the series progresses she overcomes her lack of self confidence, becoming feistier and stronger with each book. Unlucky in love, she has the added benefit of being able to turn annoying exes into toads if she wishes!
Each story has a murder mystery to solve, with the wonky inn and Alf right in the middle of things. There are ghosts, resident and non, vampires, a mysterious association that is trying to drive Alf away, dead bodies turning up, and even an episode of The Great Witchy Cake Off!
Full of dry British humour, great characters (good and bad), love and sadness, each book just gets better and better. I hope there are more to come, after Alf’s Mission Impossible antics in book 8!
These books are great fun to read, reminiscent of Midsomer Murders (with not quite as many deaths!) in their charm and gentle narrative. I highly recommend you pick up the whole series and let yourself be transported to the wonky inn for some well-deserved rest and relaxation!
