Overview

Out of work reporter Clarissa Spencer is being stalked by a stray cat. She can’t cook to save her life, her garden is an overgrown mess and her chocolate chip cookie addiction is out of control. Then to top it all off, she gets struck by lightning!  

Clarissa thinks she has it bad - until she learns the town mayor has been shot to death and his widow has been falsely accused of killing him.  Okay, so it could be worse...

Clarissa makes it her mission to expose the true killer before her arch nemesis - an infuriatingly handsome reporter from the city newspaper - can. Unfortunately, solving a murder is easier said than done...especially with the lunacy in Clarissa's life!

Some of the language is awkward but characters, plot, and setting are very good. Cozy fans will love it.

For some reason, I didn't hold out much hope for this book after reading a few pages. Even more surprising is the fact that I loved it. Not alot of magic in this book... what with her just finding out out about her powers and having trouble believing the truth of it. I am sure that the magic will be very evident in future entries in this series. For those who are trying to figure out whether to read this little novel or not...oh, please do! You will enjoy yourself and most of all... it will definitely get you in the mood for episode two! I am more than ready.... will you be? :)

The ending was a little short, I was waiting to see how the mayor's wife and family thanked Clarissa by keeping her word to help them clear her name. I also wondered why it took so long for her to connect the teen with the case, why does everything have to be at the last moment? Well I hope Clarissa gets Parker and perfect her magic with out mishaps.
