Description

Darcy Merriweather is Salem's newest resident Wishcrafter--a witch who can grant wishes for others. While Darcy isn't able to grant wishes for herself, she does possess a certain knack for solving problems--including the occasional murder...

When Darcy is hired by Elodie Keaton to clean up her missing mother's disorderly home, the Wishcrafter is certainly up for the task. After all, the motto of her Aunt Ve's personal concierge service As You Wish is "No Job Impossible." But beneath the piles of old newspapers and knickknacks Darcy discovers something much more disturbing--Patrice Keaton's body.

Darcy's determined to give Elodie peace of mind by investigating her mother's disappearance and death. Patrice was last seen over a year ago after a fight with her Charmcrafter boyfriend. Was her murder a crime of passion? Or were Patrice's troubles caused by the Anicula, a wish-granting amulet? Now Darcy has to not only find a killer, she has to find the Anicula--before the power of ultimate wish fulfillment falls into the wrong hands...

Heather Blake has struck gold once again. A Witch Before Dying is beguiling, enchanting, and just downright plain fun to read. The characters interact as well as any of us do with our friends and family's. I can't wait for Darcey and Nick's next great adventure.
