Editorial Reviews

Kirkus Reviews
Though Maggie O'Neill isn't overly impressed by her witchlike powers, she can't help but be pleased when a little voice in her ear helps solve a murder. Maggie has succeeded in hiding her hot romance with hunky Marcus Quinn from her inquisitive mother until she gets a call to rush to the local hospital. Her perfect sister Mel is about to give birth, turning Maggie's romantic night with Marcus into a very long night indeed. Stuck in an elevator, she overhears a mysterious conversation. Even more interestingly, her sister gives birth to twins that no one in the family expected. In the waiting room, the family strikes up a conversation with prospective first-time grandparents Joyce and Harold Watkins, who are overjoyed when their daughter-in-law produces a long-awaited baby boy, but troubled when she cuts off all her baby's hair and hides his bassinet card. The last straw in a strange night comes when Maggie trips on the steps and breaks her ankle. She loves being pampered by Marcus, who takes her to stay at his house, but there's little rest for either of them when Mel's husband takes off and a man is shot at the Watkins's house. Maggie and Marcus persist until they unravel all the strange happenings. Maggie's sixth (Where There's a Witch, 2009, etc.) is for those who like a little mystery with their romance.
Publishers Weekly
Alt is in no hurry to get to the bloodshed in her mild sixth paranormal mystery featuring Stony Mill, Ind., psychic empath Maggie O'Neil, Alt's first in hardcover (after 2009's Where There's a Witch). When Maggie's sister, Melanie, goes into labor, Maggie rushes to the hospital. En route to the delivery floor, Maggie gets stuck in an elevator, where she overhears an ominous conversation between two men (“It's in the bag. No way she'll ever suspect. Not until it's too late”). Maggie later breaks her foot after missing a step on the hospital stairway, offering an opportunity for her hunky wizard boyfriend, Marcus Quinn, to invite her to stay with him while she mends. Plenty of make-out scenes pass between Maggie and Marcus before a corpse turns up. The explanation for the suggestive dialogue she heard will strike many as a letdown. Those expecting only a simple puzzle tacked on to the heroine's continuing quest for romantic fulfillment will be satisfied. (Apr.)

    Not One of the Better in the Series

    I wish I could be as positive about this book as all the others (which I loved), but I can't. The first half of the book covered little more than Maggie and Marcus moving about in the hospital and Maggie's biological clock emotions related to seeing Mel's twins. Over and over and over details about the babies and Maggie's feelings, and Marcus with the babies and Maggie's feelings about Marcus with the babies. If you are reading this review and feel annoyed at the amount of time I spent on the above description, imagine how bad it will be to pay for the book and have to go through ten times the amount of monotony. It was frustrating. I felt like Madelyn Alt had writer's block but an obligation to her publisher so she just kind of threw this one together. The little part of the book that actually dealt with the mystery was very UN-mysterious. I found myself skimming through pages thinking "blah, blah, blah" Maggie is pushed around by her Mom. Maggie is controlled by her sister. Maggie is intimidated by Margo. G Same old, same old. I hope #7 isn't disappointing. I really want to follow this series, but I need real progress in the characters, relationships and deeper mysteries.

    sadly, a disappointment

    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.

    Big fan overall (in spite of this book)

    I generally enjoy this series very much, but was extremely disappointed in this newest offering. The story D-R-A-G-G-E-D, and when something did happen it was generally random and unnecessary. Case in point-I sincerely hope the next book deals with the Melanie situation, as it was merely a confusing/pathetic sidenote in this one. And while I enjoy reading mysteries very much, because I am a horrible sleuth and am therefore always surprised (lol), I actually figured most of this one out fairly early. I will definitely read the next book, but I will not pay for it in hardcover form again. Oh, and just a tip-Using. Periods. Between. Each. Word. In. A. Sentence. For. Emphasis. Gets. Old. Very. Quickly.

    Is Madelyn Alt a mystery writer or a romance writer?

    I eagerly awaited Madelyn's next book in her bewitching series and I was very sorry. There was very little of the bewitching that took place in her other books. She spent most of the book building up the romance and forgot about mysteries and bewitching. It is like she can't decide which genre to write in and so is writing in several and doing poorly at it. Am not sure I will purchase any more in the series.

    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 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.

    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.
