    Cute storiesPumpkintown Perils volume 1 has a couple of cute supernatural murder mysteries and a story about someone trying to poison her PI partner. Good stories , worth the read.

  • Maria Dimitrova

    Review copy received through BookTasters in exchange for an honest review. About a month ago I was feeling in the mood for something light and fluffy. Unfortunately the series my friends and I picked was a disaster on that front. Fortunately for me I came upon this book soon after. It was everything I wanted when I thought "light and fluffy". The humour was a bit (okay a lot!) on the crude side but it was a cute kind of crude. And even though the heroine is a bit of an idiot it's endearing rathe [...]

    Honestly I read this book in one day. This book is absolutely amazing, I loved it. Specially, because this book is for kids and I wanted to read a book for kids, I don’t know why, I just wanted to. I absolutely recommend this books (for kids or grown ups) It’s a book with a little bit humor and the mystery that we don’t enjoy anymore and we should. At first, I thought it was just another book for kids but in the middle I realize this book was made for everyone. The characters are amazing, [...]

    Pumpkintown Perils was a nice book that did its job of entertaining me for some days. My nights were well accompanied and properly excited with the story. The characters in the book are solid and funny. I did like that. Sometimes their dialogs were very funny, together with some of their attitudes. Past the half of the book we start to know them better and we begin to predict their actions(which is great).The plot was intelligent: four stories that happen separetedely but together, following the [...]

    The author via Booktasters provided a copy of the eBook in exchange for an honest review.Aubrey Law’s New Adult/Adult Fantasy fiction Pumpkintown Perils is a fun read.

    A leprechaun and a witch team up to solve a series of murders in Pumpkintown. While reading this, I kept visualizing "Halloweentown" from Disney.

  • Elizabeth Mathis

    Deep in the Jagged Wood enchanted forest, wild witch Wanda Tempest owns a magic supply shop, practices witchcraft, drinks too much, dances, and struggles with a weakness for attractive men. She also happens to be a promising, if only part-time, Private Investigator. She’s talented, beautiful, and has earned the respect and admiration of the equally talented, though far less striking, Police Inspector Sam Shamrock, an overweight leprechaun. He’s crazy about her… she’s crazy about her cat- [...]

  • Kelly Norris

    Excellent and riveting page turner. A unique take on the world of fairytale characters mixing with the modern world and the use of a drunk, overweight leprechaun as an inspector was brilliant.Loved Jinxy and Wanda, many times they made me giggle. The relationships between the characters are wonderfully written and I can't wait to start reading the second one to see what happens next.

  • Levaria

    I received this book in exchange for an honest review. I'm normally not so harsh, butI just can't even bring myself to say that this book is 'okay.' I tried so hard to like this book, I really did. I'm hoping to enlighten others before they are duped by those 5 star reviews. This book is all kinds of bad writing.At first I thought it was going to get better, but it only got worse.-Direct quote #1: I desperately wanted to know my father but whoever he was I couldn't complain too much.-Direct quot [...]

Many of the residents, or residents of nearby villages, are gnomes, trolls, and other magical or mythical creatures. In Jagged Wood, there are talking trees.And the first case we see Wanda tackling is the [...]

  • Littlewolf

    I was asked to read this story and give my honest review, with that in mind, I have to say that this was a really hard read for me. It's not that the concept of the story was not good, in fact, I love the Idea of this town. The problem I had was that I was unable to determine the reading age for this book. The writing style seemed more directed towards children while the contact reared towards more adult reading. There was a lack of description of the characters while comments and jesters were c [...]

  • Kalli Bunch

    This book is about a crime solving duo, Wanda and Sam. Sam is a leprechaun detective, and Wanda is his witchy detective assistant. Sometimes they have the help of Wanda's sisters Alice and Amber, and her talking cat Jinxy. Each chapter is about a new crime they have to solve. It's a funny collection of stories that will make you laugh, gasp, bite your nails, and sit on the edge of your seat. This is a book for all ages! The characters are fun, quirky, and eccentric, and the town they live in is [...]

    PumpkintownReally enjoyable series. Funny, interesting, a little odd, and good light cozy reading for long winter days or sunny afternoons.

  • Roma

    This book surely takes you through a magical journey in a small town called Pumpkintown. The book is truely a magical read. I fell in love with the character of Wanda and surely even I would have friendzoned Sam in real.The book is a compilation of three murder mysteries and one attempted murder and makes for a gluing read. The book is a pleasure to get lost into. The description of the Gnome village is beautiful and you wish it was for real. The way Wanda changes herself for getting the truth o [...]

  • Kerstin Vollbrecht

    Cute little mysteryWanda is a witch and associated with Sam, the local detective, with whom she resolves different mysterious murder cases that happen in Pumpkintown. The story is fun to read and very light, with a good sense of humor and very likeable characters, recounting the happenings in that little village, in whose surroundings different magical creatures line gnomes, leprechauns, trolls and not to forget witches coexist supposedly peacefully.This book is lovely written, the plot is light [...]

  • Syreeta Moore

    The book Pumpkintown Perils was a hilarious work of fantasy and comedy. The story follows a young, sexy witch named Wanda and a sloppy leprechaun named Sam. The duo are in a complicated "relationship" as Sam is head over heels for Wanda but the witch wants nothing to do with Sam romantically (or sexually). When a few murders occur in the small town, it's seems like only Wanda and Sam are able to crack the case and save Pumpkintown from any more murders. A really good, funny, and charming book fo [...]

  • Rebecca Brown

    WandaThis is the first book I have read by author Aubrey Law but it won't be my last. I loved Wanda, Jinxie and Sam's story. The characters are so awesome.

  • Caidy

    Fun readI enjoyed this. Easy to read, fun characters. A good book for young adults. The mysteries were interesting and not too predictable.

  • Eva Chau

    A light but interesting book. It made me want to turn every page and follow along Sam and Wanda while they unveiled the mysteries that Pumpkintown brought.Pumpkintown is that kind of place where everybody knows who everyone is, but they don't actually know what kind of person they are or what they do behind closed doors. Everybody has secrets and, as everyone knows, secrets don't stay hidden very long in a small town.If I hadn't been so busy while I was reading, I wouldn't have put it down. It's [...]

  • Mia

    Reading the first volume of Aubrey Law's Pumpkintown Perils: A Witch Mystery Collection (Book 1-4) was a good read for the upcoming Halloween. The book's cover, showing an almost whimsical of a similarly green “Wicked Witch of the West,” a black cat, creepy pumpkins, and crows flying over a full moon, drew me in to thinking that the book was targeted to young children/adults and a spooky vibe story. I actually did not expect some “adult” language and scenes. However, overall, it was humo [...]

  • Carol Adams

    While it is an entertaining read, love Jinxy-so snarky, it was a bit more R-rated than I expected. Putting that aside, it was a good read.

  • Alpha Omega

    Pumpkintown Perils is a collection of stories that all have a magical setting. The main character Wanda is developed and very dimensional. She has a fascination for mystery solving and she does it alongside a police inspector leprauchan named Sam Shemrock. There is a nice amount of fantasy elements and crime procedures to create a very fascinating novel. The relationships between the characters is developed and well planned, although a bit more would be appreciated. Overall, the stories were goo [...]

  • DewayneDale

    It has great ideas but need to expand the town. It does have real likeable characters.If you want a quick lift in humor please readit.

  • Kevina

    One of the most fun books I've read! It's one crime after the other, Wanda and Sam make such an epic duo solving them. A bit of romance, humor, mystery, gnomes, and other awesome fairy tale creatures. So good!!

  • Nerdish Mum

    Wanda is our main character and she is a witch who owns her own witchcraft shop and is on her way to being a very efficient investigator of mysteries, working side by side with Sam Shamrock, a police inspector who is not a witch but a leprechaun. Wanda often works out plots before Sam and puts herself in danger by trying to get things done herself even though she knows the she should really follow the rules, if they weren't so boring. Wanda is extremely sassy, confident and very vain. She knows [...]

  • Shefali

    A book which is all three - mystery, thriller, crime fiction, but with a twist, and a twist which is no less than magical. Set in the mystical Pumpkintown, this book traces the journey of Wanda (who wants to be a detective) and Inspector Sam as they uncover the truth behind the mysterious deaths of several townsfolk, who happen to be, well, quite unique in their own way. It traces different stories and rather different cases as the exciting duo demystifies them all. Quirky and refreshing, 'Pumpk [...]

  • Paula Adams

    I liked this book even though it is way different from the other mysteries I read. First they investigate the death of a tree by an overweight leprechaun and a part-time private investigator. There are gnomes, trolls, witches and a cat named Jinxy. There are other murders. These are like short stories that continue from the one before. The characters are quirky, and there were times I was laughing out loud. I will continue to read this series.

  • Robyn

    Pumpkintown Perils is the perfect murder mystery to get you in the Halloween spirit! Wanda is the star of this book as she investigates the murder of a talking tree, Mr. Maple. Between the gossip and following her own instincts, Wanda pinpoints suspects, and as you can imagine, this isn't without trouble. At 127 pages long, this short story is great for when you want something that is going to have you hooked from the beginning and through a spanner in the works along the way to keep you on your [...]
