The Good, the Bad, and the Witchy by Heather Blake is the third in the wishcraft mystery series and I am devouring them. I find that they are perfect cozy mysteries to snuggle up with and am already grabbing the next one from the store.
This series gets rave reviews from me. I've spoken before about my love for the characters. Each character living in the Enchanted Village has their own appeal. Eccentricity is the norm and in this installment, we get some new quirky characters to love (or hate). We still have our beloved Aunt Ve, Harper, and the delightful blooming (no pun intended) relationship between our main character Darcy and Nick, the police chief.
The main mystery in this book is finding out who killed Michael, the delivery boy. While it begins as a simple investigation, it becomes more complicated as we learn more about the events surrounding his death and we end up with a few other mysteries on top of the original. The story has just enough twists and turns to keep us guessing until the end and keeps us smiling with its snarky humor. And in this one, quite a wrench was thrown into the mix at the end which only makes me want to get to the next book faster! We can only wish that a place like the Enchanted Village really existed so we can move there ourselves and meet all of these personalities. (did you hear that, Darcy?)
This book, and the whole series as a matter of fact, is the perfect light, summer read.
