It Takes a Witch (Wishcraft Mystery #1) By: Heather Blake
Darcy Merriweather has just discovered she hails from a long line of Wishcrafters-witches with the power to cast spells by making a wish. She’s come to Enchanted Village to learn her trade but finds herself in the middle of a murder investigation…
Now this is the cozy mystery I was looking for. It was a perfect blend of cozy and supernatural. I enjoyed the interesting way Blake chose to use magic. People are Crafters and have a specialty. She made rules and she stuck with them, though, I vaguely remember Darcy helping someone with a money wish which she shouldn’t have. I could be misremembering though and I don’t feel like trying to find it in the book.
Anyway, enjoyed the characters and the setting. I thought the story was interesting and I wasn’t able to guess who done it. There were plenty of questions asked but Darcy wasn’t constantly thinking someone else was the murderer, she went about her search in a friendly manner and wasn’t nosy and annoying. Really liked her and I thought she was very realistic.
After my long search the fact that I finally found exactly what I was looking for made me happy. I can’t wait to read the next in the series, but I’ve burnt myself out on cozies so it might be a little while.
