Each book keeps the story going

This book is enjoyable. One, I'm from Indiana and live close to the area Ms. Alt describes in the book. I love the paranormal and the characters are so true-to-live-per-Indiana. I think I know Maggie's mother and TG she isn't mine. Maggie's hang ups touch a cord wit...
This book is enjoyable. One, I'm from Indiana and live close to the area Ms. Alt describes in the book. I love the paranormal and the characters are so true-to-live-per-Indiana. I think I know Maggie's mother and TG she isn't mine. Maggie's hang ups touch a cord with me. I'm not sure if it is just regular human angst or peculiar to Indiana.
I've been a fan since the first book and the only thing I find wrong is that the books are not long enough. The writing and the stories get better and better. I strongly recommend this book to readers of all ages. I can read these books more than once and enjoy them each time. And there are fewer and fewer authors/books that I can say that about.
Start with Madelyn's first book and continue. Definitely not a waste of time or imagination.

I discovered M. Alt's books earlier this year and really enjoyed reading them. I quickly went through the series, and looked forward to this latest installment. Unfortunately, this book does not live up to the others. The witchiness is barely there. The solution to the mystery is obvious early on; perhaps the real mystery is why Maggie can't see what's going on as early as the reader can. Maggie's boss Lis, Enchantments, and the people who are usually found there are barely mentioned. Even Minnie the cat is absent for most of the book. Instead of being interested in the mystery, I was obsessing about how Maggie could be walking around in the same clothes for a few days.
I really enjoyed the first five books in this series, and I hope we can get back to business as usual in the next installment. This book was not terrible, it just wasn't up to par with the others.

    fun paranormal amateur sleuth

    Over the last nine months in Stony Mill, Indiana, the sensitives feel a chaotic energy surge sweeping the town and leading to murder and mayhem. The witches and the sensitives are friends so arrange a coalition led by Liss the witch who has deliberately developed her powers and encourages her co-worker Maggie O'Neill to do so too as she is a strong empath.

    Maggie gets involved in the chaotic energy when she goes to the hospital with her boyfriend Marcus Quinn to see her sister Mel giving birth. The spirits follow Maggie into an elevator where she overhears a conversation that implies someone's death. A few days earlier student Jordan Everett died from an enlarged heart caused by steroid use. Not understanding what the spirits are telling her, Maggie remains with Mel overnight. She overhears an argument between a woman who just gave birth and a man who is not her husband. Her sister's husband vanishes while Maggie believes Jordan's death is linked to another death a few days after her sister gave birth to twins. Now she has to prove her assertion with evidence beyond witchery and intuition.

    Madelyn Alt's paranormal amateur sleuth mysteries are always fantastic fun. With a good deal of sensual feelings exchanged between the heroine and her significant other, A Witch In Time has cross genre appeal to romance readers too. Maggie works the case with the spirits trying to tell her the solution, but they are too cryptic, which both frustrates and motivates her. Readers will enjoy this refreshing tale in an original series as learning who the culprit is from those beyond will not hold up in court.

    marcus is the man,i mean witch

    i really enjoyed this one. nailed it with marcus.he is thoughtful,considerate and totally gets maggie.only thing i find distressful?can maggie get a backbone?i really need her to stick up for herself with mother,sister etc.have to say witchy parts,mystery and romance is right on the money but bringing in tom's ex and sister's husband leaving 4 children?not so much.there is enough sadness and we can so not want to be brought down from the total good vibe ya got going on the marcus/maggie dynamic.
