At the end of a series, like everyone else who is a fan of a series, the feeling is bittersweet. Holly has come a long ways since she came to Beechwood Harbor and the mansion, but another supernatural adventure awaits her and the rest of the beloved characters and it is for all the marbles.
Goodbye’s a Witch is the twelfth and final book in the Beechwood Harbor Magic paranormal cozy mysteries series that read best in order.
Newly married and new as B&B owners, Holly and Adam are settling in to their new life. Her potions store is doing well, the inn has guests booked up, and married life is good. But, it wouldn’t be familiar if Holly didn’t have a few extra brands in the fire. Evangeline is getting set to move out of the mansion to go live with Teddy in San Francisco, the Supernatural Protection Agency has moved the portal to the mansion’s grounds and it is glitching, Nick’s planning another career change and maybe a move away from Beechwood, and Harmony is freaking out about her Potion Master certification test. Oh, and Holly’s magic is suddenly being weird right when a mysterious woman comes through the portal fearing for her life from vampires and SPA at once. Not knowing who are the good guys or bad guys in the flair up of this most recent vampire struggle for power and knowing there is a mole or even more within the SPA, the Beechwood Harbor people are on their own to solve the latest difficulty.
I read this knowing it was the last of the stories with Holly at the center so I was feeling extra nostalgic. I had the reason for her magic glitch figured out right away and waited with expectation for when she discovered the answer. I did wonder at her extra caution about keeping Serenity a secret even from Meryl and Agent Bramble who have long-since been trusted allies and I cracked up at Holly’s fluttering over Harmony so that Harmony was distracted.
The way Holly and Adam worked together and communicated showed that their relationship is right where it needs to be. I was so tickled to see them as a married pair.
In the end, there was the big climax scene and then a wonderful denouement that wrapped things up nicely. Most of all, there was a letter from the author promising that another Beechwood Harbor spin-off series was in the making so I was not saying good-bye to the town, the manor, or the people for good.
The last was easy, fast reading full of high entertainment and paranormal fun. Those who want a bit of extra sparkle and magic to their cozies and a slow burn solid romance should definitely pick these up.

When a young witch in need of asylum shows up at the Beechwood Manor, Holly can’t turn her away. But when the trouble nipping at the witch’s heels follows her through the manor’s front door, she might be the last guest Holly and Adam ever check in.
Will the battle between the vampires and the Haven Council prove to be the undoing of the magical world, or can Holly and her friends rise up and stop the vampires once and for all?
