The Magical Curiosity Shoppe

Three deliciously spooky (and hilariously funny) mystery stories in a little shop that wasn’t there yesterday.

The Mystery of the Halloween Mask
Halloween is usually a blast in Banshee Creek, Virginia, also known as The Most Haunted Town in the USA, but not for Magical Curiosity Shoppe owner, Dora Pendragon. The immortal witch is tasked—or, to be more accurate, cursed—with guarding dangerous and mysterious objects in her dimension-hopping store. This is, to put it mildly, not the most fun way for a witch to spend eternity, and when a cursed mask disappears from the shop on Halloween night Dora is caught in a race against time. She has to solve the mystery behind the curse, find the mask, and return it to the shop before its bloody legacy exacts a terrible price.

The Mystery of the Christmas Doll
Christmas in Banshee Creek usually means cold weather, hot chocolate, and lots of toys. But when a haunted doll with a bloody past arrives in the Magical Curiosity Shoppe, Dora Pendragon suspects that the innocent-looking toy is determined to find a new owner. Will Dora solve the mystery behind the doll before it finds a new victim?

The Mystery of the Love Potion
It’s Valentine’s Day in the Most Haunted Town in the USA. February is a slow month for Banshee Creek, but not for Dora Pendragon. The Magical Curiosity Shoppe seems to be searching for a new item, and it’s not the only one. A mysterious stranger is also looking for a delicate glass bottle with curious markings and powerful magical contents. Should Dora give up the precious liquid, or should she finally confront the eldritch force that holds her prisoner, once and for all?

About Ani

“I’m a USA Today bestselling author of paranormal romantic comedy and cozy mystery (whew, that’s a mouthful!) set in Banshee Creek, Virginia, The Most Haunted Town in the USA. My books feature feisty, irrepressible heroines dealing with a host of paranormal critters (ghosts, cryptids, pagan gods…the sky’s the limit) and mysteries. They find love and laughter (and sometimes corpses) along the way, and readers get to follow them every step of the way.

I love quirky towns with spooky stories, and, thanks to my books, I get to “live” in one year-around. In real life I live in a Virginia suburb (which is sadly lacking in ghosts) with my husband, three children, two cats, and one adorable dog.
