Description (from cover):
‘Leaving a traumatic police career behind, Clyde Fortune has returned to her seemingly quiet hometown of Crystal Haven, Michigan. In spite of the psychic powers of its residents, there’s no telling what trouble is brewing in this burg.
The highlight of this year’s fall festival in Crystal Haven is a bonfire with a witch’s cauldron resting over it. Clyde’s best friend, Diana, leads a ritual to divine the future, but it seems no one foresees that one of their own will drop dead–or that Diana will be a prime suspect.
Clyde already has her hands full with her eccentric family, runaway nephew, and burgeoning secret romance with a hunky homicide detective. But after another coven member is attacked, Clyde suspects there’s a witch hunt afoot and focuses her psychic and sleuthing skills to clear her friend’s name and catch a killer.’
This book was perfect for this time of year. The book takes place at Halloween and with that holiday right around the corner, this book was a great read. I love Autumn and this book help create that feeling of crisp air, bonfires and just Fall fun. Also, I love witches. Anything to do with magic and I will just eat it right up. This book features the Wiccan religion and it was interesting to learn about covens and Wiccan traditions for this time of the year. The author creates a cozy little town in Crystal Haven and it was interesting to see how this book took off after the first in this series.
I enjoyed reading the debut in this book, Pall in the Family and was anxious to read this one. I love Clyde’s family. They make me laugh so much. I actually caught myself laughing a lot aloud while reading this one. They are witty and crazy and just a riotous bunch. I really enjoyed this book and I think I liked this one more than its predecessor. This author has a way with creating fun and quirky characters that make reading quite enjoyable.
If you are looking for a perfect book to read during the crisp evenings of Autumn, then this book is perfect for the season. I enjoyed the mystery and was surprised a little at the ending. I think that this was a wonderful addition to an already wonderful series. If you haven’t discovered this gem of a series yet, then you are seriously missing out on a fantastic cozy series.
