Overview

A Charmed Death (Bewitching Series #2) by Madelyn Alt

Maggie O'Neill was just a small town girl, stuck in a dead end job—until she started working at Enchantments, Stony Mill's finest mystical antique shop...
 
Now she's Indiana's newest witch. Learning to cope with her newfound powers is tough enough, but add to that keeping the stock at Enchantments organized and remembering to tape reruns of her favorite show, Magnum P.I., and Maggie's got a full plate.
 
But when she witnesses an altercation between a local teenage princess and another customer in Enchantments—and then the girl turns up dead later that day—she feels compelled to investigate.  The police are at a loss. But Maggie has some tricks up her sleeve, or to be more specific, some spells, charms and mystical intuitions. And with the help of her boss (and favorite witch) Felicity Dow, Maggie is spellbound and determined to get to the bottom of this murder.

I liked the plot of this book. Continue to like the tone and attitude with which Madelyn Alt writes. A little annoyed with Maggie's passiveness and the character Tom needs some work. I felt in this book and the first that the author isn't sure which direction to take.

Having read this second book in this series, I want to move to Indiana and work at Enchantments! Great cozy read. I loved the ending and didn't see it coming. Can't wait to read the next installment.

This book has its hint of romance and also some jelousy between Tom and Marcus. The words flow easily and its easy to lose yourself into the book. It has a well thought plot line and keeps its reader guessing. A wonderful mystery novel with loving characters like Felicity Dow and Maggie O'Neill. Love the small western town setting and the lovely stores described in this story.

I love the story telling and the characters. I love nice cozy stories with some unexpected turns and development of her and the others. Very witty. I miss reading them and I wish she would have more soon.

I liked this book, but not as much as the first one. It has second child syndrome but not as bad as it could have been. It's still a good read. Maggie finds herself once again thrown into the town's current murder drama when a rambunctious and prominent high school girl, Amanda Roberson, goes missing soon after her visit at the antique store Maggie works at. At this part it's sort of made unclear why Maggie feels the need as an antique store worker, that's not particularly close to the girl, to dive in on trying to find out where she is but I guess that's me nitpicking. The story has to start off somewhere right? A few hours later Amanda's car is found under an old abandon covered wooden bridge and the murder investigation starts. Maggie really starts getting into the investigation when Amanda's mother wanted to return the clock Amanda had bought that day for her Christmas present. Hidden inside the clock was some incriminating photos with Amanda entertaining an older gentleman, along with evidence she was running an underground sex blog that the high school population was frequenting. Tom, her love interest to be, (for reasons I don't entirely understand, he seems like your typical small town narrow minded bigoted cop), doesn't make much of a return in this one but her sidekick in all these little mysteries so far, Marcus Quinn, does. Maggie seems to think he and her boss and friend Felicity have this torrid May-September romance going on but it's painfully obvious they don't. It's just kind of ridiculous, in my opinion, she is supposed to be this crime solving wiz and the reader (us) is sitting there going, "Oh give me a break. Could it be anymore clear that there is nothing going on?". A few chapters before it ended I knew who it was. It being the dastardly murderer of said high school tramp Amanda Roberson. The mysteries are a little better than standard but the series is more than that. It has genuine pagan witchcraft as it is today and not any of that Charmed crap. (Sorry if you liked Charmed, I personally hated it) You get an understanding of who modern witches are. Both the flighty and powder puff types to the vastly intelligent personality set. The rituals and tools explained in the book are genuine information that witches use in practice today, so if this series succeeds and becomes mainstream at least it is contributing to easing some of the horrid stereotypes inflicted upon this religion.

Maggie O’Neill is back in another very interesting book. This one takes place in December a few weeks before Christmas and it’s all cold and dreary in Stony Mill, Indiana. Her friend has found a keeper in Dr. Danny but yet Maggie is in a tossup with Officer Tom Fielding. While she is basically taking care of Enchantments full time, with the help of Evie, as her boss/friend Felicity Dow has decided to take some time off so that she could mourn the loss of her murdered sister. The victim of murder in this book was kind of someone that Maggie knew. Granted it is a small town so everyone almost always knows everyone. This time though it’s a teenage girl that isn't living the life her parents think and the one that almost everyone else knows of. We get to meet her friend and a cousin of Marcus named Tara. Tara is very interesting, the complete opposite of Evie wholesomeness. Maggie also got to do her first ghost N.I.G.H.T.S investigation. The poor girl was scared out of her mind but then again I guess anyone would be if they always got the heebie jeebies from cemetery’s and only recently found out why they had that reaction. This whole book is a really good one. It kept me guessing and the murderer wasn't who I thought it was at all. But then again that is the whole point of these books I think. To get the reader guessing while trying to figure it out as you read along with it. I am going to give this book a five since it was really good and I loved it. Happy Reading! :-) Anyways until next time enjoy this book review brought to you by Baroness’ Book Trove.
