There’s something about this series that just puts me in a good mood and this book was no different. I think it is the warmth of the characters and the community that Blake has taken the time to craft. This time, Darcy Merriweather is trying to help her friend Star whose violent ex-husband Kyle is back in town. No one else but Star has seen the man so there is no proof that he’s been harassing her. Darcy starts looking for the supernatural means by which he could have made himself invisible.

A Potion to Die For is a cozy paranormal mystery done well. Blake uses a range of tropes that fans of this genre would be familiar with and gives us an engaging heroine to boot. Carly Bell Hartwell owns a Little Shop of Potions where she mixes a range of white magic potions for her customers, boosted by a very special secret ingredient.

I really enjoyed Blake’s latest novel as Darcy’s investigative skills continue to improve. Floracrafter Harriette Harkette hires Aunt Ve’s company As You Wish to plan a massive party for her to celebrate not only her birthday, but her success in creating the world’s first truly black rose.

Darcy works for her Aunt Ve’s concierge service which acts as a front for their wishcrafting activities. This time Darcy has been hired by Elodie Keaton to clean out the home of her packrat mother, Patrice. Darcy discovers Patrice’s body in the middle of all the mess and Elodie promptly hires her to find out why Patrice went missing and how she died.
It Takes a Witch is an enchanting cozy paranormal mystery that centres on sisters Darcy and Harper Merriweather and their Aunt Ve. Darcy and Harper have just learned that they are spell-casters and so they have the power to grant wishes for other people. They decide to move to the touristy Enchanted Village, Salem, Massachusetts – where other witches hang out under the noses of humans – and help Aunt Ve with the family business. A murder occurs and suspicion falls on Sylar, Aunt Ve’s partner. Darcy decides to investigate even though it pulls her away from learning the […]
