In the delightful sleuth mystery novel Pumpkin Pies and Potions (A Melting Pot Cafe Paranormal Cozy Mystery) by Polly Holmes, the deadly combination of dark magic, a new witch, and murder affect the magical town of Saltwater Cove, and these events hold dangerous possibilities for the residents of the community. When Evelyn Grayson was eleven, she lost both of her parents and went to live with her Aunt Edie in the magical town of Saltwater Cove. Now at twenty-three, Evelyn is a graduate witch and has returned from her travels to work with Edie in the Melting Pot Cafe. When Harriet, one of her best friends, is arrested for poisoning the grumpiest woman in town, Evelyn rallies her friends to find the real culprit. Her nerdy friend Tyler unexpectedly returns from a long absence just in time to help out, but she is floored by his new sexy look. Needing his computer geek assistance to help Harriet, Evelyn has to work at keeping her mind off his hunky appearance and staying focused on the problem at hand. Unfortunately, more complications arise before they can unmask the culprit, and now Harriet's life is in jeopardy. Can Evelyn and Tyler locate the actual killer before it is too late? Or will Harriet be the next victim?
