First in series. I liked the book and the premise, I didn't particularly like the protagonist. Not that Maggie was bad, she just came off as having less personality than the cast of characters around her. Still, well enough done that I'm looking forward to the second installment.
Pretty cute first in series book, but Maggie, as a character, needs a bit more to make her interesting. Liked some of the other people in the book. Hopefully the next will be more satisfying. Fun,quick read
This was a really fun book that was beautifully written, with very likeable characters. I really enjoyed this book after being completely emersed in the Harry Potter books for years. This was a nice change of pace. It has a nice blend of paranormal, metaphysical, a meddleing mother, murder "the who-done-it" factor, and romace all twisted into one. Thumbs up to anyone who shares these intrests, i think you will like it too.
First in a series featuring Maggie O'Neill, a young woman in a small-town Indiana 'northern Bible belt' town who finds herself out of one job but fallen into another--as an assistant in Enchantments, a mystical antique shop. She takes the job despite her new boss, Felicity, confessing to Maggie that she's a practicing witch. Maggie's Catholic upbringing makes her skeptical and uneasy at first, but after getting to know Felicity and her friends, comes to discover that there's nothing evil about them, though Felicity becomes the number one suspect when her sister is brutally murdered. I really enjoyed this book, though I was dubious before starting it--these cozy mysteries with a mystical lean to them seem to be something I either really like or really can't stand. This series seems to be getting off on a good foot--I liked Maggie (although I don't think she's come into her own yet) and Felicity, the author's writing style was smooth and easy to read, and the 'witchy' bits were realistically portrayed.
This book was cozy but not as humorous as it appeared from the cover blurb. Maggie gets a job at Enchantments and her boss is a witch who is accused of murdering her estranged sister. Maggie tries to clear her boss's name with the help of a sexy wizard and hinderance from a sexy cop. I kept waiting for the book to fulfill its promise but it was sort of draggy.
