Cassie’s Coven – The Bad Apples Mystery
Magic, Mystery and Girl Power!
If you were a fan of Trixie Belden, Nancy Drew, the famous five or secret seven – this is the book for your children.
When fruit begins to disappear from Witchborough’s orchards Cassie and her friends must find out what is going on before local growers lose their livelihoods. With a little magic help, and a lot of girl power, the four set about to solve the mystery. But along the way they will find out that misusing magic can have dire consequences.
The Cassie’s Coven series is based around four young Australian girls who discover that they have been left a magical heritage from their great-great grandmothers to become witches.
They find out over the series that they are each a special kind of witch; black, white, green and yellow – each with their own powers and all aimed at protecting the natural world.
Each mystery they solve revolves around some kind of environmental issue which has the potential to wreak havoc on their small town.
The first book introduces the characters, has them find a magical book, meet their familiars and solve their first mystery.
As the series goes on they become more proficient in their powers, find out the background of their town and their ancestors and solve mystery after mystery.
Wonderful Series | 5 out of 5 Stars
Cassie’s Coven 2 – The Grimoire has a sense of humor and it’s a problem solver; a role model/parent actually. It has rules that must be followed or pay the consequences.
Yes, CC2 is a children’s book, but it is so interesting and fun. The girls are fun, inquisitive characters and their parents, Pia’s great-granny and the other support characters are perfect for their roles. The girls can be silly, too; they’re ten, it’s allowed. Pia’s great-gran spills the beans on the history of Witchborough — I’m sorry for the spoiler. If you remember Nancy and all the Hollister kids, you’ll love these four lil girls with their touch of magic.
The young witches investigate the disappearing fruit. The second story in a great new series | 5 out of 5 Stars
This series is shaping up well. At the beginning of this second book the Pia and her grandmother are away in the city. The girls notice the the apple trees on the property are fall of fruit but the next day some of the trees seem empty. They worry as Pia’s grandmother makes extra money from selling products made from these apples. Cassie tells her mum who phones Pia’s grandmother. They talk to the police but they show no interest. Later Cassie overhears a conversation about a local farmer losing his crop of figs. The girls decide to look into this and see if others have had the same problem. An entertaining read no matter what your age.

Cassie’s Cove Book 2. The girls are protecting the environment, their friendships and each other.
This adventure revolves around stolen fruit.
I was pleased to read an advanced copy.
A great read for anyone, especially cool for girls who are a bit out of the ordinary. As they say, they each have different likes and skills and work together to protect their neighborhood and its resources.
