Description

Maggie O'Neill was just a small town girl, stuck in a dead end job--until she started working at Enchantments, Stony Mill's finest mystical antique shop... Now she's Indiana's newest witch. Learning to cope with her newfound powers is tough enough, but add to that keeping the stock at Enchantments organized and remembering to tape reruns of her favorite show, Magnum P.I., and Maggie's got a full plate. But when she witnesses an altercation between a local teenage princess and another customer in Enchantments--and then the girl turns up dead later that day--she feels compelled to investigate. The police are at a loss. But Maggie has some tricks up her sleeve, or to be more specific, some spells, charms and mystical intuitions. And with the help of her boss (and favorite witch) Felicity Dow, Maggie is spellbound and determined to get to the bottom of this murder.

Our customer reviews

I prefer later instalments of series. Introductions are passed, we know the setting, and protagonist. We're freer to acquaint others and get going. Familiarity contributes to enjoyment and book #2 is fantastic, segued deftly by <b>Madelyn Alt</b>. Writer <i>Susan Wittig Albert</i> panders to midway readers, bogging well-informed fans down. She re-introduces every individual, re-hashes their history. <b>Madelyn's</b> tiny refreshers catch us up from the previous mystery, using a 'what's happened since' angle that is rewarding. Here's why I love this volume. <i>'Maggie'</i> is at a fascinating neutrality with friendship and spirituality. She's hesitant about metaphysics but only retains a few customs from church. Her friend of 18 years is busy with a beau. But their bond is intact and Maggie is fond of her new circle too. It is a pleasure to acquaint ex-nun <i>'Gen'</i> and Amish <i>'Eli'</i> more. It really goes to show, embracing supernatural wonders needn't be limited by religion. Mystery-solving involves numerous people and phases. Scattered pieces are realistic. We see where clues come from. End scenes were silly in that there were a million ways to avoid pickles. An exciting and utterly unexpected culmination makes up for it. A 3:00 AM finish for me!show more
