    Enjoyable

    This was a pick up from a trade store, and I am glad that I did. The writing is good and plot line is fun and keeps you interested. It is a good book to curl up to and read.

    If you like fantasy, paranormal genera then you will enjoy this series.

    You should check out the other series I have suggested,all books listed are the first in each one.

    refreshing mystery

    Four years ago in a psychic vision, Ophelia Jensen saw her best friend die she badgered the police until they put out a missing person¿s report. They found his murdered body four days later and since Ophelia was the last person to see him, she became their number one suspect. Between being harassed by the police and a reporter and feeling guilty because she was unable to save him and Ophelia developed PTSD. --- She moved to Summerset, Iowa to be near her grandmother Abby who is a witch and a practitioner of magick. She keeps everyone but Abby at a distance until Rick Davis comes to town. She doesn¿t believe for one minute he is a chemical salesman as he is interested in the county¿s anhydrous ammonia thefts (an ingredient in cooking meth). They stumble over the remains of a murdered man, Rick is beaten up, and she is warned off by threatening letters and a dead coyote left on her doorstep. Ophelia would leave if she could but she comes to believe her grandmother who says it is her and Rick¿s destiny to fight the evil that has pervaded the town. --- Every once in a while a mystery comes along that is so refreshingly original with characters that are totally unique that readers will need to obtain it immediately. WITCH WAY TO MURDER is one such special book. Ophelia goes from thinking of her psi powers as a curse to a desire to learn magick Abby is everyone¿s favorite grandmother. These three dimensional characters burrow their way into the reader¿s heart from the start. It will be hard to wait for the next book in this beguiling series. --- Harriet Klausner

    Really good!

    This was the first time I had read books by this author and I like it so much I had to get them all. I love this series. The author keeps you on the edge of your seat with all the little twists and turns and she has a new take on witches. Loved it! I can't wait till she writes some more.

    I just don't care

    Stopped reading at page 177- can't believe I made it that far (and I always finish books) I just wasn't able to get involved in this story. Damsgaard's main charachter seems cold and I didn't really wonder about what made her that way. Weak.

    Awful!

    Ophelia is a neurotic bore that only Abby could love.

    Endearing

    I discovered this series when I won a contest. I'm so glad I came across it. I find the characters to be down to earth and believable. Ophelia grows and matures as the series goes on and as she is thrust into more situations she didn't ask for. The psychic/witch aspect is more of a background element that doesn't overpower the plot as it tends to do with a lot of stories. Pick up this series- you'll be glad you did.

    Good mystery...

    Ophelia Jensen is a witch. She has unwanted psychic powers. It causes more problems than anything else. Ophelia wishes they would go away so she could be a normal person, a normal, boring librarian. However, the powers DO help her and Abby solve mysteries. ...................................... Abby is Ophelia's grandmother. Unlike Ophelia, Abby enjoys being a witch. She does not see the results as problems. Abby views them as challenges and she enjoys a good mystery. So when a body is found in Abby's backyard, the two witches do what they do best, meddle. ...................... **** I love this series! The author does not simply give her readers a mystery. She takes them to the edge of reality. Fantastic! ****
