    GREAT SERIES!

    Madelyn Alt's bewitching series is great fun! Characters you care about, well-developed plot lines, and a healthy dollop of accurate information about Wiccan practices and beliefs make these books well worth reading. Each book builds on the others, so be sure to read them in order. I can't wait for the next installment!

    Good Getaway Book

    I really enjoyed this book. She gets a little dramatic with her characters, but she stays on track with the plot of the story. I like the way her characters come to life and sometimes you have a movie playing in your head. I liked this author so much, I bought her latest book which has just come out in hardback.

    There's no rest for this wiccan, anyway!

    Poor Maggie! Before she met Felicity Dow, her life was pretty boring. All she thought was that she had social anxiety and a dead end job. Now she's an empath/psychic working for a Wiccan boss at the posh boutique Enchantments. Her little town of Stony Mill has been over run lately with weird happenings and lots of murder. The latest installment of life in Stony Mill, Indiana is another winner, and Madelyn Alt has definitely found a rabid fan in me! I love the relationship Felicity and Maggie have, and the realistic "on again/off again/not again" relationship she has with Tom is as frustrating as they are in real life. I also love that she explores the "will they or won't they" feelings between Mags and Marcus(I say go for it, Mags! He's smart, sexy and a witch!), and the introduction of Minnie the Minx, Mags' orphaned kitten companion. Having visited the area of Indiana that Stony Mill is supposed to be set is wonderful, as the Amish and Plain are residents, and how interesting(and cool) it is to see buggies parked in the Wal-Mart, Target, and Meijer's parking lots. It's frankly driving me nuts to have to wait until July for the next installment, but wait I will!

    This is one must read series

    Maggie is back. Her sister, Mel, is pregnant and on bed rest and her mother guilt trips her into helping out. Then the local owner of the feed plant ends up dead, supposedly from falling off one of the silos. But things don't add up, like why would he be up there if he has a fear of heights??

    At the same time, there is a spirit in Mel's house that Maggie is asked to take care of. So, Lis and Marcus come in and do a cleaning. The problem with this is Mel is a horrible gossip. Now the little town knows that Lis and Marcus are witches and they have a narrow point of view on this behavior.

    The good thing is the widow calls Maggie into do a cleansing of the property so she is not haunted by the ghost of her husband. But Maggie gets the feeling that this is more than just a simple cleansing.

    Another great book for this series. I love how we learn that Lis and Marcus are NOT a couple and that he is really interested in Maggie. Too bad she keeps going after Tom, ARGH!! Anyway, great story, wonderful who did it and why. I cannot wait until July to get the fifth book.

    Felt like it was missing something.

    I have been a fan of the Maggie O'Neil series since the first book. I was anxiously waiting for No Rest for the Wiccan since I have thought very highly of the others in the series. After reading, I feel that this book was lacking something. Don't get me wrong, the writing was very well done and what I've come to expect as a fan of Madelyn Alt, however, it just seemed that the plot was hurried and ending was full of holes. Overall, the book just felt flat. I was a little let down. I hope that this book is the foundation for something bigger and better.

    Love Madelyn

    It's so hard waiting for a new book by Madelyn Alt. I was hooked from the first couple of pages with her first book. Although I loved this book like I do all her books, I missed the antique shop and the rest of the crew. It didnt feel as 'cozy' to me as the last books, BUT I am not knocking this book at all. It just had a little bit of a different feel to it. But one thing I have to say is...... yay Marcus!!!!

    No Rest for the Wiccan by Madelyn Alt

    Madelyn Alt's witchy mystery series is well worth the read. Her latest "No Rest for the Wiccan" catches readers up on the heroine Maggie's life and loves. Between being 'outed' by her sister after taking care of a slight 'entity' problem for her, being lambasted by both her mother and the local fire-and-brimstone preacher, getting tangled up in the latest murder in her small town, adopting a new kitten, and juggling the two men in her life...well Maggie's really hoping that surely things will have to slow down some.<BR/><BR/>I like Maggie and I'm personally rooting for luscious Marcus (big, bold, long-haired biker wiccan) to win the competition for Maggie's attention. So far there's no sex, but really well plotted mysteries are why I read Alt's books!!

    Best One to Date

    Okay, I've been a fan of Alt since she wrote the first one. This is the 4th and she is still getting better. <BR/>I was at the bookstore in Ft Wayne (near Alt's hometown) and showed the book to the manager. Next thing I know is that it has been moved from the regular mystery shelf to up front as a New Release/MUST Read. <BR/>yes, this is a must read. It is easily re-readable and will have a place in my car for all the stops and waiting. I read it the first day I got it. I'm still enjoying it on the 3rd read thru. It will be my dinner companion for the foreseeable future. <BR/>This is a great book. The characters are becoming more real, the plots are better. I would like to see her write a longer book. Some of the plot needs a bit more drawn out, but she is getting her stride and the stories are stronger. <BR/>You feel like strangling her sister and mother. Maggie is getting a lot more confident. She has two potential boyfriends. One is everything her mother wants, the other may just be everything that Maggie needs. I am looking forward to the next book just to find out what happens.<BR/>This is not only a book for an adult to enjoy. But, it is a book that you can share with your kids.

    This is an enchanting and Bewitching mystery

    On the surface Stony Mill, Indiana is a quiet gentle Midwestern town in which everyone knows their neighbors and no one locks their cars. Looks can be deceiving just ask apprentice witch Maggie O¿Neill or her boss at Enchantments powerful witch Felicity Davis. Felicity has been teaching Maggie the craft and how to do Magick.------------- Maggie is with her sort of boyfriend Tom, a police officer, when he gets a call to go to the food mill where they find hanging up on the conveyor a dummy in effigy and a warning note to the ownerJoel Turner. They put it down as a dumb harmless prank A few days later Joel is found dead from a fall into a silo. On a lighter note, Maggie spends time with her nieces and pregnant sister Mel who needs bed rest. The nieces believe in house ghosts, but darker energy permeates the home. Fearing what the malevolence will do, Maggie, Felicity and practicing witcth Marcus try to force the spirit to go into the light. Ironically Maggie is in danger from a human who wants her dead.------------ Fans of the TV show (and movie) Bewitched will feel Maggie resembles Samantha, tough and sweet. She stands up to her dominating mom and give her ¿kind of¿ boyfriend a chance to be something more while hiding her feelings for Marcus. This paranormal mystery is exciting even with a mundane killer on the loose stalking the heroine someone the audience will not suspect. This is an enchanting and Bewitching look at ¿Eerie, Indiana¿.-------------- Harriet Klausner

    Cute read.

    Definitely not Nobel prize literature, but a fun read all the same. It's nice to relax and enjoy a book without having to think about the reasons behind it. This book is great entertainment.

    Hmmm...Not So Sure...

    I really enjoy the way Madelyn Alt makes the characters talk to readers. The style is great for true escapism reading. I don't read much fiction so I love when one can grab my attention. This was the fourth book of the series and I have been happily burning my way through the series. Although I like the mystery in this book, I found myself overly annoyed with Maggie's sister Mel, Maggie's passivity and willingness to take abuse and to allow her sister to abuse her friends. Maggie should have laid these dysfunctions to rest a few books back. I found myself skipping over many parts that contained "Mel dialogue". Just too annoying.

    No Rest For The Reader!

    This is my FAVORITE of the Bewitching Mysteries Series!
    Book 4 is the best so far!
    I love how Ms. Alt's series is just getting better and better.
    I could not put this one down!
    Cozy stories with a dash of magic added in the mix. I like that this book also added in ghosts to the story line!
