    A Very Fun Diversion.

    A Very Fun Diversion. I completely enjoyed Blake's 'Wishcrafter' books but I like these characters, and this book, far more. While this breaks no literary ground, the writing is generally fast paced with really appealing characters. The interplay between Carly and Delia is especially fun. While some the plotting and language is repetitive at times (the text could use some trimming) I am anxious for the next book in this series. This was a fun, engaging, diversion for a cold/rainy afternoon.

    A Potion to Die For by Heather Blake
    The First Magic Potion Mystery

    A Potion to Die For is a fun read that kept me up way past my bedtime, even though I had to get up early!

    Heather Blake writes a fast paced story for this, the first in the Magic Potions Mystery series. It starts with a mob chasing Carly Bell Hartwell, careens through various wacky characters, includes two wild car rides, and ends with me pushing on to finish as I had to know the ending.

    The characters are fresh and funny, but there is a depth to these characters as well. I want to know more about them. A perfect example is Delia. When she first made the scene I thought, "OK, here's the nasty character that's going to make all sorts of trouble and is going to annoy me". Delia may be dark to Carly's light, she may cause problems, but I like her. There's a lot more to her than the stereotypical nemesis and even Carly comes to that realization. Plus, Delia has Boo!

    If you're looking for a fun, fast read you need look no further. A Potion to Die For is perfect for whatever ails you!

    I really enjoyed meeting Carly and her cousin Delia. The cousins

    I really enjoyed meeting Carly and her cousin Delia. The cousins were so different. Carly runs a potions shop and Delia runs a Hex shop. There is a murder in town and the victim is left in Carly's store. Carly and her friend and cousin help her find the murderer. In the mean time the police chief is her ex-fiancee who still wants her back. There is so many twist and turns to the story. You will really enjoy this book.
