Kinsley gave up magic when she left Coventry at seventeen but now she's divorced and broke and has to go back home. Her first night back she discovers a dead body and now many people in the town say she killed him. She's reunited with her black cat familiar and makes some new and old friends, all the while trying to clear her name and practicing her magic again.
This was a very quick read with entertaining characters interactions and a decent enough magic mystery, though nothing terribly unique. I enjoyed the town and the character dynamics, though it seems slightly unrealistic that everyone would believe the main character came back just to murder someone she never met. There were also several editing errors and a lot of repeated phrases that could have used some cleaning up. Still, not a bad cozy mystery novella.
