Attorney Keli Milanni is looking forward to Beltane, the time-honored Wiccan holiday that celebrates life with feasting, ceremonial dancing, and ancient Celtic rituals. Having recently opened her own practice she is still getting used to the fact she is the business. When she decides to help out her friend Erik who is blaming his bad luck on his ex whom he believes put a curse on him. When the ex turns up dead and Keli finds herself a person of interest she begins to believe she may be cursed too. Can Keli uncover what is really going on and who the murderer truly is or will she miss the May Day festivities? Although this is the 5th book in the series it was my first book. I had no trouble following the storyline or understanding the characters relationships. The characters are interesting and the mystery is full of red herrings. This is a quick fun read which I would recommend to cozy mystery fans. I voluntarily agreed to read a copy of this book supplied by Netgalley. All thoughts and opinions are my own and in no way have been influenced.

This story is definitely a unique twist in cozies. The protagonist, Keli Milanni, is a wiccan lawyer that finds herself involved with "witchy people" in trying to solve a murder entangled with hexes and curses. However, she soon finds herself a victim of harassment or maybe even a curse or two. This is an intriguing and sometimes suspenseful story. It moves along at a good pace giving readers lots of information but yet keeps the murderer unknown until the end. Thanks to Kensington books and NetGalley for an ARC of this story. The opinions expressed are my own.

May Day Murder by Jennifer David Hesse was a breath of fresh air at this time of year. Ms. Hesse's characters are slowly developing now so that we get more and more insights into Keli, Wes and Farrah. I like Keli but this time she she seemed to be just a little too trusting which surprised me as she has not shown that side of herself before. Wes and Kelli's relationship seemed to be going through some growing pains in this book. Although that's a natural part of relationship growth, it still seemed that some of their conversations were a little flat and stilted. The plot is well-crafted, quickly paced with a few twists, several red herrings, very few suspects and a chilling reveal. There is also a secondary mystery thread that runs through this story that is unresolved at the end that I look forward to pursuing in the next book. I voluntarily reviewed an Advance Reader Copy of this book from Kensington via NetGalley. All of the above opinions are my own.

The mystery is fast paced and has a good flow. This book had more Wiccan / pagan tradition in it than Samhain Secrets did and I found some of it difficult to follow since I know so little about those practices. But I enjoyed the story – Keli is a fun and feisty protagonist with loads of charm.

I’ve missed a couple books in this series, but I honestly didn’t feel like it when I dived right in to this fifth addition to the Wiccan Wheel series. Keli has her own firm and is doing OK when she is drawn into the murder of a new acquaintance’s ex-girlfriend. Keli can’t help herself and uses her spare time to investigate the murder, especially because she’s considered a suspect as she and this new acquaintance discovered the body. Along the way, she realizes she may have been hexed because nothing goes right in her life after discovering the body and starting the investigation. I quite enjoyed this book, and most of the way through the book I smugly thought to myself “I know who did it.” Well, guess what? I was wrong! If you love paranormal cozies, definitely give this one a try! I highly recommend this book and was provided the e-book which I voluntarily reviewed.
