Review Another “gotcha” book by Christine Pope... that is, once you start Mysterious Ways, you are hooked. Thinking that our heroine is back with her beloved Rafe is climatic, only goes to prove you do not know Pope. There is lots more in store as Miranda faces Simon, the dark warlock who has managed to control the Castillo Clan in ways' totally unimaginable until now. With the prima dead and two of her three daughters in a “coma like state”, Miranda, not confident in her own powers, must consider taking the lead. When assisted in unexpected ways to find and confront Simon, she uses her very accurate memory and reason to confront him, devising a surprising path to his demise. Wonderful read leading us to question the role of demons in Cat’s future. Better read the first two books before even thinking about reading Mysterious Ways

Mysterious Ways by Christine Pope is the third book in the Witches of Canyon Road. Note: this review contains spoilers! Once I started this book, I couldn’t put it down! The story begins with Rafe and Miranda responding to the news of the death of Rafe’s mother. And the news for them and the Castillo clan gets worse from there. Realizing Simon Escobar is responsible for her death, the Castillos and Miranda fight to keep the clan safe as the plan to take him down. Simon is one step ahead of them blocking all communication to clans outside the state and putting the new prima Louisa into a coma. Then there are the demons that show up at Genoveva‘s funeral. Miranda goes with Simon again to help protect the clan, but even she isn’t ready for Simon to summons the Lord of Chaos! He, however, doesn’t like being summoned and works with Miranda to get free. The story is even crazier from there, but you have got to read it! There is so much action, determination, love, and honor jammed into this book, you won’t be able to put it down either!

Miranda managed to escape from Simon's clutches with the help of Rafe. Now back amongst the Castillos she thinks they'll be safe but tragedy follows them home. Rafe and his mother didn't get on but he never expected to lose her this early or in this way. But the shocks aren't finished - Louisa drops her own bombshell on Miranda, one that the rest of the clan may not accept! Escobar just keeps attaining new levels of ick! He is a true magic flinging maniac! I love to hate him! The Castillos never lose their fight, even when they lose their matriarch. The "little helper" who comes to Miranda's aid - well I did NOT see HIM coming!!

She’s done it again, Christine Pope has written a gripping, heart wrenching story. The third book in The Witches of Canyon Road series immediately picks up where the second book finishes. Overall, a great read, it was action packed right from the start with various chaotic things happening. As the story progresses we see Miranda’s relationship with Rafe and Cat grow. Even her relationship with Rafe’s older sisters grow as we get to know them and their family better. Miranda’s confidence grows as she goes through her struggles of coming into her magic abilities. She grows so much in herself as a young woman, her relationship with Rafe grows as well. We can see the intensity of their love for one another. The love between the duo grows, it just gives you the feels. Simon, oh, Simon, he has become so much more of a villain from the end of the second book to this book. Christine has done well with her villainous characters. Simon is very easily a sympathetic villain, but Christine makes him a character that a reader just can’t stand. His motives for his actions are purely selfish. His obsession with Miranda gave me the creeps, it feels very wrong especially as he uses the Castillo’s to get his way against her. Rafe Castillo, he has grown on me from book one to book three. We do see some scenes in the book from his view. He does love Miranda, plane as day we can see it. He is willing to do just about anything to get her back from Simon and keep her safe. His quick thinking leads to some brilliant ideas for the Castillo clan to use to search for Miranda. By far, this was one of my favorite books by Christine Pope. Hands down, it’s easy to see the interaction that these characters have with themselves, and their families. I enjoyed the scenes with Miranda and Rafe’s sisters, it shows a lot about her character that given everything she has gone through she can still maintain a friendship or relationship with the Castillo clan. I enjoy girl and girl friendships and it’s nice to see that in this book. We also see more of the Castillo family dynamic between Rafe and his sisters, the relationships between the immediate family and their significant others. It makes for an interesting read, to see how they don’t really always know how to act around one another. This is an 18+ book, as there are sexual scenes and implied rape. If either of these make you uncomfortable or are a trigger, please don’t read. I was sent an ARC book but this in no way affects my opinion. I highly recommend this book to anyone who is looking for an action packed magical-realism book. One of the best books in this genre for sure. Two thumbs up with just how good it was.
