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 Maggie is 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 later the girl turns up dead--she feels compelled to investigate. Though the police are at a loss, 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.

My take on this book:: CAUTION!! THIS REVIEW MAY CONTAIN SPOILERS! IF YOU DON’T WANT TO READ ANY SPOILERS PLEASE STOP READING NOW! IF YOU DO WANT TO READ SPOILERS CONTINUE ON! I WON’T ALWAYS HAVE SPOILERS THOUGH!!

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
