A New Witch in Town (The Kettle Krew of Gardenia Glen Book 1)

Product Description
Salvia Diamond is an ex attorney turned florist who operates Diamond Designs in Gardenia Glen. She lives with her Grandma Gladi and her mother, Chrys, who are witches trying to reclaim their heritage. As the elder Diamond women experiment with time travel and "journey herbs" to usher traveling spirits to the afterlife, Salvia is content to focus her sorcery skills on producing the most beautiful floral arrangements in the area. Of course, the Diamond family members aren't the only ones in the area practicing spells, the Wykes sisters, Bellcinta and Raven, are witches from the hill country who venture into Gardenia Glen to visit The Green, an underground country club/artist's residency for all area spell casters. Here, sorcerers intermingle and share ideas with one another. Some, like the Diamonds, want to practice hexes for fun, while others, like the Wykes girls, are self-obsessed and into black magic.

When Salvia's brother Reed comes to town for a visit and rejects his ex-girlfriend--none other than Bellcinta Wykes, she and her sister, who has also recently experienced a lover's rejection, are infuriated. They are far too beautiful to be dismissed. No one thinks anything of the sisters' tantrum until an innocent man ends up dead in the newly constructed greenhouse behind Diamond Designs, and Detective Jason Ames from nearby Moville suspects Reed, the building's contractor, had something to do with it. What happens in this case of revenge magic gone wrong? And will the soul of a witch have to be exchanged for the soul of the innocent victim? Find out in "A New Witch in Town," the first installment of The Kettle Krew of Gardenia Glen series.

Note: The Kettle Krew of Gardenia Glen is a series of novellas that runs in tandem to the Jill Fox Paranormal Mystery Series of novels, in which the main character—Jill Fox—is a witch who was adopted by a family outside of sorcery. Salvia Diamond of the Kettle Krew is Jill’s biological sister but neither of the women knows one another. Each series can be read independently, but reading the series in tandem as it is designed adds another layer of tension and richness to the reading experience. If you have enjoyed The Kettle Krew at Gardenia Glen, please consider checking out the Jill Fox series as well.

    Simple Tips To Help You Get The Weight Off
    It does not matter how much weight you need to lose. The fundamentals remain the same - you need to use up more calories than you consume. Between diet and exercise, regular weight loss can be easily achieved and here are some helpful ideas to get you started in the right direction. That is the scales moving downwards.
    Don't take too much time in between meals. Instead, eat more frequently, but don't eat more than 3/4 full per meal. Doing this can help you to avoid overeating, and control your portions. Also, eating more frequently can lead to healthier eating habits. For example, chewing thoroughly instead of swallowing it down, will help you to actually enjoy your meals.
    Steaming foods that you would ordinarily bake or fry is a great way to decrease the fat content in your food. Steaming food will cook it without adding butter or any other unhealthy supplement. Choose fresh foods with lots of flavor,that way steaming or grilling can be a great way to cook your meals without adding fat.
    A great way to lose weight is to prepare your meals the night before. When you prepare your meals the night before, you won't have to rush to get to work or wherever you're going and you'll always guarantee yourself to have something healthy to eat when you're hungry.
    A helpful tip to lose weight is to learn how to cook your own meals. If you don't know how to cook, you're more likely to resort to eating fast food and you're not likely to get proper nutrition. Learning to cook basic meals for yourself is very important.
    It's a well known fact that drinking water can help you shed pounds. Have you also heard that drinking chilled water causes your metabolic rate to increase? When you drink a glass of ice water, your body is forced to raise your body's temperature, which also raises your metabolism.
    Having a workout partner can help remaining committed on your weight-loss plan easier. A person who shares similar weight loss goals with exercise and diet can be a very strong motivational tool. Together, you will find it easier to stick with the program during times when you might otherwise give up.
    A good way to help you lose weight is to avoid getting coffee and related drinks at cafes. Most of us aren't aware of it, but these drinks tend to be loaded with sugar and fat. Try brewing your own coffee instead. You'll have control over what goes into it.
    When trying to achieve weight loss, it is important that you do not focus too much on the number on the scale. Instead, you should attempt to achieve a healthy body. It can sound contradictory, but just focusing on the health to start with can keep your thoughts positive. By over-focusing on weight loss, it is easy to become discouraged with the number on the scale, which will cause you to slide right back to your old habits. It's very common for the average person to fall off diets because they tried to lose weight in ways that are far too restrictive. Making gradual changes will help you lose weight.
    Try to cook at home as much as possible. Food from a restaurant often contains a lot of fat and salt. Also, restaurant portions are huge, which might tempt you to eat more than you really need. When you cook your own food, you can control exactly what goes into your meal, and you can control your portions.
    If setting a goal for yourself doesn't seem to be working, why not try joining a program like Weight Watchers? Not only do they have organized plans to keep you on track to losing weight, but you get the support of the other members to give you encouragement to keep going.
    Slow and steady weight loss is better and more sustainable than fad diets and a rapid decrease in numbers. A long-term change in attitude towards food and exercise is what is required for the pounds to come off and stay off. But remember that it can be done, and you will reach your goals with a little perseverance.
