Some Like It Witchy by Heather Blake is the fifth book in the “Wishcraft” mystery series. Publisher: Obsidian, May 2015
Wishcrafter Darcy Merriweather can charm desires into reality, but as the national bestselling Wishcraft mysteries continue, she won’t be able to magically avoid trouble when death holds an open house.
The Enchanted Village is abuzz when the old Tavistock house finally goes up for sale. Darcy’s friend Curecrafter Cherise Goodwin is hoping she will have the winning bid on the home, but Darcy can’t shake the feeling that something bad is about to happen—and her magical instincts are usually right.
Sure enough, while Darcy and Cherise are looking at the property, they discover real estate agent Raina Gallagher stone-cold dead on the floor. Clutched in her hand is a gemstone amulet and, on the wall above her, a large red A. While Raina had no shortage of enemies, there’s also a dark legend about the house itself. To track down the killer, Darcy must unlock the secrets of both the deceased and the estate—and she’ll need to act fast, because revenge is a deal that never closes.
I get so immersed in this story that I leave the real world for the world created by the talented Heather Blake. This is a delightfully enchanted tale where the craft is golden and it does take a village to ferret out a killer. The author does a great job in pulling me into this light drama where I’m also a part of the action, rooting for Darcy to learn the truth and the others to live a good life. I enjoyed how well the murder mystery was played out with suspects that were too good to be true and it was fun watching it all come together until that moment when I knew the killer’s identity. What appealed to me more was Darcy’s journey and I am patiently waiting for it to come full circle. This is by far the best and my favorite book in this whimsically mesmerizing series and I can’t wait to see what happens next in the Enchanted Village.
