Don’t mind me, I’ve just got a little something in my eye as I write this review…both eyes actually. Bidding farewell to Arcadia, Lon and the teenage delight that was Jupe was harder than I thought it would be. I am grateful though that Bennett finished the series on a high rather than a whimper. Our intrepid trio are hell-bent on defeating Arcadia’s mother, even though Jupe tries to keep his investigation under wraps. There’s magic, mayhem and a truckload of really sweet moments. What more could you want?

Bitter Spirits is simply the cat’s whiskers and the bee’s knees (love my 1920s slang?) and isn’t a book that should be missed. When Winter Magnusson, debonair bootlegger, has a problem in the form of ghosts he turns to Aida Palmer, spirit medium. Someone hexed Winter and now spirits of those he extinguished follow him everywhere. Aida is happy to oblige as Winter is rather well built and a girl on her own has to make a dollar or two where she can. Winter’s problems continue to mount along with his attraction to Aida.
I love this series because of the plots, characters, world building…I could honestly keep going on and on. I can even forgive (a little) Jenn Bennett for leaving us with one hell of a cliff-hanger if you can forgive my effusive praise.
