Overview

Cupid has cast his spell on good witch Ophelia Jensen. The practical, pragmatic, law-abiding librarian has just begun letting down her hair with Stephen Larsen, the author of some of the most scandalous crime exposés ever written. It's a match made in the stacks—until the would-be lovers take a quiet countryside stroll, and shots ring out.

A murderer, not magick, made Stephen disappear—and Ophelia might be next. The sheriff warns her and her grandmother Abby not to meddle, but after another shooting leaves them shaken the women can't help but get involved. A sinister stalker is slowly drawing closer to Ophelia, and she'll have to summon all her powers to prevent herself from ending up six feet under.

This Shirley Damsgaard series revolves around a witch named Ophelia who keeps getting entangled in mysteries. In the first book, Ophelia is unhappy and unaccepting of her 'powers'. Then with each following book, she grows a little stronger and more confident in her abilities. This sixth book, "The Witch's Grave", has Ophelia coming into a new level of power while experiencing dreams of another, possibly past, life.

Ophelia is happy when she meets a handsome blond stranger and they seem to have an instant 'connection'. So when he asks her to walk with him and discuss a date, she's glad to comply. Their walk is interrupted when he is shot right in front of her. He manages to pass her a diary before he collapses at her feet and in the flurry of the rescue, she forgets to give it to the police. That night she reads the diary and becomes interested in what could possibly make this man a target for a killer. That night, she also begins to dream of a woman. The further she gets into the mystery, the more of this mysterious woman's past life is revealed. Can Ophelia figure it out before the killer comes for her?

I've enjoyed Ophelia's journey so far and in past books, the balance between magic and mystery has been weighted more towards mystery. However, in this book the balance shifted quite a bit towards the magical side and I think the mystery suffered as a result. Hopefully, Damsgaard will adjust the balance and I certainly intend to keep reading about Ophelia's life, loves, and mysteries.

As always, great fun. Shirley Damsgaard makes the best mind candy going! Will it solve world hunger or stay in my permanent library? No, but it's a guilty pleasure for all.

The Witch's Grave is a great addition to the series. It is entertaining, and the characters are very believable. They are not static, but are maturing and becoming more real. A wonderful way to spend a rainy, or sunny, afternoon.
