Auralee Wallace | Author-Reader Match: WHEN THE CROW’S AWAY


Instead of trying to find your perfect match in a dating app, we bring you the “Author-Reader Match" where we introduce you to authors you may fall in love with. It's our great pleasure to present Auralee Wallace!


The second book in the Evenfall Witches B&B Mystery series, WHEN THE CROW’S AWAY, catches up with young witch Brynn Warren trying to help the ghost of a recently deceased chocolatier. Helping spirits pass on to the other side is usually a piece of cake for ghost-whisperer Brynn, but this normally sweet situation is a bit sticky this time around given the late candy-maker is convinced he was murdered. Brynn will need to use all her skills—both magical and mundane—to uncover the truth behind this demanding ghost’s bitter end.



Hi! My name is Auralee Wallace, and for as long as I can remember, I wanted to be a witch. As a kid I loved playing in the forest behind my house, pretending to fly on broomsticks (which were really just sticks) and whipping up magical mud-potions in the creek. While none of my spells ever came to fruition, I now get to fulfill all my enchanted imaginations through the Witches of Evenfall – and solve a few murders too!


What I’m looking for in my ideal reader match:

  • Possesses a keen eye for details that may or may not be useful in solving the occasional murder
  • Has patience for opinionated family members
  • Wished - at least once - that they had the ability to stir up a potion or fly on a broom
  • Believes in magic


What to expect if we're compatible:

  • Demanding ghosts
  • Poison gardens and grimoires
  • Spells going wrong every now and then
  • Demanding companions/familiars – in particular, a fluffy, Maine Coon cat named Faustus, and a crow named Dog

WHEN THE CROW'S AWAY by Auralee Wallace

An Evenfall Witches B&B Mystery #2

When the Crow's Away

The ghost of a recently deceased chocolatier believes he was murdered, and it's up to young witch Brynn Warren to use her magical gifts and old-fashioned sleuthing skills to find out how he really met his bitter end in this enchanting new Evenfall Witches B&B Mystery.

After spending months unable to use her powers, Brynn Warren is once again using her gift and working at her family's bed-and-breakfast. Her heart is full, and although one of her aunts wonders if it might be a little more full with a bit of romance in her life, Brynn is certain that finding love again is not in her future. In fact, she can’t imagine anyone being more certain of anything…except for maybe, the recently deceased Mortimer Sweete. He’s certain he’s been murdered, and he wants Brynn’s help to bring his killer to justice.

Mort is positive he knows who killed him: his business partner's wife, Cookie, who had been trying to get them to sell the candy shop for months. But Brynn doesn't share his conviction. After all, the coroner ruled his death natural causes, and Mort did have health problems in life. But with Cookie putting up a For Sale sign for the shop already, Brynn knows she can't just let it go.

Trying to solve a might-be murder while attempting to stop her aunt from meddling in her personal life seems like a recipe for disaster. If Brynn wants to bring Mort's spirit peace, she'll have to rely on all her skills—both magical and mundane—to uncover the truth.
