The Magic of Murder
When his partner is discovered in a frozen alley with eight bullets in his chest, Niagara Falls Police Detective Roger Frey swears vengeance. But Detective Chief Woodward has forbidden him or anyone else on the detective squad to work the case. Emlyn Goode knows Roger will disobey his boss, which will cost him his job and his freedom. Because she cares for him more than she’ll admit, she needs to stop him. Desperate, she can think of but one way.

Emlyn recently learned she’s a direct descendant of a woman hanged as a witch in 1692. She has a book filled with arcane recipes and chants passed down through her family. Possessed of, or perhaps by a vivid imagination, she intends to use these to solve Jimmy’s murder before Roger takes revenge on the killer. But she’s new to this “witch thing,” and needs help from her friend Rebecca Nurse, whose ancestor also took a short drop from a Salem tree.

Rebecca’s not much better at deciphering the ancient directions, and while the women stumble over spell after spell, the number possible killers grows. When Chief Woodward’s wife is shot and a bottle bomb bursts through Emlyn’s window, it becomes clear she’s next on the killer’s list.

Mystery, magic, murder and the supernatural. What more can you ask for?

I was pulled into the story from the first page and thoroughly enjoyed the witty dialogue. It was fun to follow along as Emlyn discovers her Wiccan heritage.

I felt like I was in the book, the descriptions are very realistic. An all around fast, funny, engaging read.

The Magic of Murder is a very interesting story with several twists and turns, and was suspenseful all the way to the end. I had no clue who the killer was! I enjoyed it very much and hope there are more like it to come. There were some formatting issues (extra spaces) that could have had more to do with the program than the actual book. Other than that, it was a good read.
I love the plot of the book. Emlyn is a writer who is struggling to create a story line about witches…and in an effort to get help from a local store that sells random things…she finds out that she has direct lineage to a real witch! She uses that knowledge to help solve a local crime of a person that was murdered, someone very close to her! She also makes a new friend and “adopts” a new pet to help her!

The book kept me wanting to turn each page and see what was going to happen next. I would recommend this to a friend and give it a gold book worm!
