    4 Stars... Have aliens invaded Hemlock Cove??? Well, Aunt Tillie thinks so, so it must be true... Bay has her doubts though, and her curiosity gets the better of her as she attempts to investigate the strange crash that authorities (Even Landon and Chief Terry) are extremely hush, hush about... With one obstacle after another, not to mention the conspiracy theories flying around, Bay must use her super stealthy ways (And Thistle and Clove) to avoid detection and discover the truth...

    A fantasy full of humor I love the Winchester ladies, they are always a delight to read about and the possibility of aliens was very entertaining. Bay and Landon can't or won't share information this time around and it's entertaining to read about, especially Landon getting all worked up over it. Aunt Tillie is on full display and I love it every time!

    Aliens! Okay so there wasn't any aliens in the book...or was there? I loved the story with Aunt Tillie, the snark, and family. Clove has me wondering, could she.....? Hmm I can't wait for the next book!!

    Another Marvelous Tale! Absolutely love this series! Every book stands very well on its own merit - yet read as the series, the sum becomes much greater than it parts! Author Amanda Lee pens yet another extraordinary story that is simply impossible to put down!

    Not as good as the others. The cousins need to move on with their lives..weddings and babies. Boring and lack of humor. Repetitive story line to a dry ending. I almost couldn't wait to finish it..amanda, shame shame!

    Just what the place needed. A crash of something in a field and a FBI person so full of himself it's surprising he didn't blow up. Bay wants to cover the crash for her paper but he won't let her into the area at all and basically brags about arresting anyone he deems interfering in his work. First off people try to figure out what crashed. It could have been a drone but Aunt Tillie thinks it's a UFO and the aliens are attacking!

Worse yet, the guy heading the investigation is Landon's superior in the field and Landon can't tell anyone what is really going on, even if he knew what was going on. Then, let's see. Maybe Hank has a captured alien in his barn. Mrs. Little is acting friendly which is a massive change in her behavior. Could she be a cloned person like in Invasion of the Body Snatchers? Also, Clove seems to be ill. Could she be pregnant? Another really good story in this series.

With plenty of suspects behaving oddly including Mrs Little, who is being nice to the Winchesters, there's plenty of ideas about what has really gone down and when a group of alien hunters appear at the Dragonfly Aunt Tillie is determined to prove that aliens do exist. Loved the alien inspiration asides between the chapters.. only sad that not one of the Winchesters mentioned "Earth Girls are Easy" my favourite 80's alien film!! Who said that aliens have to be the bad guys?!! Lol

    Entertaining as Always I love the WWotMW fantasy novellas, and this was no exception. Finally, no one is cursed into books or "lessons" that Aunt Tillie is famous for. Watching Landon and Bay struggle to keep his case confidential was a change of pace, and I was happy once they finally got to be a team again. I do think Clove's "sickness" may be something else. I'm not sure if my guess is accurate, but if it is, I hope it's not the beginning of the end of the series.

I'm still looking forward to the crossover between them and the Mystic circus group. I'd love to see or hear about Bigfoot or vampires, since that has come up with Clove and Landon. This was an easy fast read, and I'd recommend it to anyone who enjoys humorous cozy UF or is a fan of Ms. Lee.

    Aliens in Hemlock Cove Almost a whole book with just Bay. Landon, Aunt Tillie, Clove etc are all side characters in this book with Bay at the forefront and I think the book suffered a bit for it. It's the snarkiness between all the characters that makes these books such fun, for me. But in this we have a crash in the woods with the F B I declaring the area off limits the Winchesters immediately think Aliens, and Bay being Bay is off to find the truth, even if it means being in the outs with Lando Aliens in Hemlock Cove Almost a whole book with just Bay.

    When an object crashes into a field outside of town, all Bay wants to do is to obtain information to write a story for the local newspaper which she now owns. But she is stonewalled at every turn by an obnoxious FBI agent - and you know the Winchester witches won't be standing for that! A fun and entertaining read - the characters are what makes this series and they never fail to bring a smile to my face!

    Uh-oh, the Winchester witches are hunting ET Aunt Tillie’s mind works like a rusted steel trap. She’s also the “Queen of Ridiculous Thinking”, so when something lands on Potters Field, she suspects an alien invasion. It then gets crazier from there. Really funny story with all the girls and their beaus getting into the act and lots of TV trivia and references to laugh at. (Someone goes to a lot of scary movies and watches the TheXFiles!)

    I never want the books to end !!! I have learned that whenever I start one of these books I'm not going to put it down until I've finished it. I can't be the only one reading this series of books that would love to be a part of this quirky family, please believe me when I say you'll fall in love with each one of them. Not to sure I'd want to end up on Aunt Tilly's list though-lol.

    Let me just say this book rubbed me wrong in every way possible. The story line is further than far out there. Bay is hell bent on getting Landon in trouble and trying to invade one of his cases. Let's just say if he really worked for the FBI he would have been fired long ago for her interference and his lack of control. This entire story Bay whines and cries and throws fits to get her way. Landon must of hit his head at some point because he's lost a few brain cells as well.

    Really enjoyable but then every wicked witches story is. I thought the aliens storyline was hilarious and what the truth was even funnier, everyone's banter was spot on as always I loved how Landon coped worse with not being able to work as a team with Bay and she took it in her stride, well in her own way....lol overall another great read for me.

    More zany adventures I love reading about Bay and crew, they really get into some crazy situations. Everyone's personality seemed to be somewhat subdued in this story, but it was a super cute, fun read as always. Are there aliens in Hemlock Cove or is agent Gibson hiding something different?

    Colleen M. Snell

    Another interesting mystery With all the usual twists and turns, the government hiding the truth, the X-Files comments, and the UFO which some say isn't unidentified the mystery has the Winchester 's busy searching for the truth. Also there is a hint that Clove might have a surprise coming in a future book. Enjoyed the ride as always.

    Yet more witchy fun and antics from my favourite crew in Hemlock Cove. Bay and Landon still have interesting dynamics and new areas to explore in their relationship, this time when work has them keeping information from each other. Of course mayhem, fun and Aunt Tillie follow. It's like a hug in a book, time spent with the Winchesters.

    ALIEN 👽??? As always Amanda is such a fresh breath of air. I like the short stories they are funny and just enough snark. Although there wasn't a lot of witchy hijinks in this book it was still fun. Amanda is in my top five favorite authors. Her books are all about love and happy endings with a lot of crazy thrown in.

    Omg this was so funny I love this series. Aunt Tilly is a hoot. Thisle makes me laugh and Clove is just so lovable. I almost bet Clove is pregnant. Bay and Landon are the perfect couple. I don't know why I waited this long to read but I'm glad I did. This is a must read for anyone young or just plain young at heart

    Amanda's done it again!!! A great getaway from reality book. As is what you come to expect from Ms Lee, and the "Wicked Witches" series. I Love this series and how she connects them all together thru ups & DOWNS and everything in between, always ending with, Family no matter how much bickering they are there for you...

    Gets better with every book I can't get enough of Bay and her family. They always have me guessing and laughing out loud. I was convinced there was going to be aliens along with Aunt Tillie. You can't go wrong with any of these books. I feel we are going to be in for alot of surprises in the next book.

    A fun read author hits characters on head Enjoyed this book greatly. Author was spot on with characters and not taking tangents like she had in some. The story keeps it great family witchy theme of crazy antics, mysteries and even posdibly could it no wait aliens! It is a madcap chase to find out and leave you in pieces ...grin.

    Great Book I was thrown by the title. The book is not a nightmare Aunt Tilly is making her great nieces go through in dreamland. This was a real story in real (book real) time. And it was a great story. Had me reading fast in one non-stop session to get to the end. I enjoyed this book tremendously.

    Not disappointing I am frugal (actually cheap). Although this is available through Kindle Unlimited, I buy every new release so I have them available to re-read at my leisure. I like them that much!
