A cute addition to the series

I liked this book, but not as much as the first one. It has second child syndrome but not as bad as it could have been. It's still a good read.

I liked this book, but not as much as the first one. It has second child syndrome but not as bad as it could have been. It's still a good read.

Maggie finds herself once again thrown into the town's current murder drama when a rambunctious and prominent high school girl, Amanda Roberson, goes missing soon after her visit at the antique store Maggie works at.

At this part it's sort of made unclear why Maggie feels the need as an antique store worker, that's not particularly close to the girl, to dive in on trying to find out where she is but I guess that's me nitpicking. The story has to start off somewhere right?

A few hours later Amanda's car is found under an old abandon covered wooden bridge and the murder investigation starts. Maggie really starts getting into the investigation when Amanda's mother wanted to return the clock Amanda had bought that day for her Christmas present. Hidden inside the clock was some incriminating photos with Amanda entertaining an older gentleman, along with evidence she was running an underground sex blog that the high school population was frequenting.

Tom, her love interest to be, (for reasons I don't entirely understand, he seems like your typical small town narrow minded bigoted cop), doesn't make much of a return in this one but her sidekick in all these little mysteries so far, Marcus Quinn, does. Maggie seems to think he and her boss and friend Felicity have this torrid May-September romance going on but it's painfully obvious they don't. It's just kind of ridiculous, in my opinion, she is supposed to be this crime solving wiz and the reader (us) is sitting there going, "Oh give me a break. Could it be anymore clear that there is nothing going on?".

A few chapters before it ended I knew who it was. It being the dastardly murderer of said high school tramp Amanda Roberson. The mysteries are a little better than standard but the series is more than that. It has genuine pagan witchcraft as it is today and not any of that Charmed crap. (Sorry if you liked Charmed, I personally hated it) You get an understanding of who modern witches are. Both the flighty and powder puff types to the vastly intelligent personality set. The rituals and tools explained in the book are genuine information that witches use in practice today, so if this series succeeds and becomes mainstream at least it is contributing to easing some of the horrid stereotypes inflicted upon this religion.

    Definetly worth the read

    Don't get side tracked by the 'magical and witch' title and review. This is a real person who is learning to trust her 'gut instinct' and like all of us, doubt ourselves.
