The Trouble with Magic: Review

The Trouble With Magic (Bewitching Mysteries, No. 1)
By
Madelyn Alt



From the Back Cover

Double, double, toil and murder...
Bringing a little culture to Stony Mill, Indiana, Enchantments is one of the area’s finest antique stores. But shop clerk Maggie O’Neill and her employer Felicity Dow do more than conjure up curios for the locals—they each possess a talent for spellbinding sleuthing . . .


Bored with her office job, Maggie jumps at the opportunity to work at Enchantments. She was a little weirded out when Felicity described herself as a witch, but if her boss wants to play with broomsticks and cauldrons, where’s the harm? However, Maggie’s first day on the job may turn out to be her last when Police question Felicity in the murder of her estranged sister.


With everyone in town proclaiming Felicity’s guilt faster than the Salem Witch trials, Maggie finds herself wondering if she’ll also be tied to the stake. And lately, she’s been receiving messages on a spiritual frequency guiding her to prove Felicity’s innocence—and to embrace her own "charmed" life.


First in the new Bewitching Mystery series!

I thought this book was a light read with just enough mystery to keep me reading more! I look forward to reading more of Madelyn Alt's books, including the other's in this series.

I am giving this book 4 stars out of 5!

This book falls into these reading challenges:
* The 2009 - 100+ Reading Challenge

Until next time...
Happy Reading!

I just discovered your blog and I love the title of your blog. I've been referring to myself as a book slut for years, I think I even mentioned it in my first blog entry. But I've never heard anyone else refer to themselves that way before.

Book sluts unite.
