The Trouble With Magic

Title: The Trouble With Magic
Author: Madelyn Alt
Type: Supernatural/mystery
Series: Book 1 in the "Bewitching Mystery" series
Pages: 261

Synopsis: Maggie O'Neil decides to change things up in her life and leave her collections job. She takes a job at the local antiques shop and enjoys the quieter pace of the shop. Even though Maggie really likes her new boss, Felicity Dow, she still has a hard time accepting the news that Felicity is a witch. When Felicity becomes the centre of attention during a local murder Maggie decides to help prove her boss's innocence.

My Thoughts: This was a decent mystery and a nice easy read. I enjoy some supernatural books and I think I was hoping for more supernatural content. There were little teasers but not a whole lot of magic goin' on.

The book gave the feeling of the author setting up future smaller storylines and relationships between the characters. It will be interesting to see how the relationships pan out especially between Maggie and the two men in her life. It has a Stephanie Plum feel to those relationships -- one black leather wearing 'bad' boy and one 'good guy' who's the cop. Overall a good read. I'll read the next book in the series and see how I feel about the series after the relationships are more developed.

My Rating: 3/5 (a good read)
