HEXES AND HEMLINES
Genre: Mystery/Suspense/Thriller, Mystery, Amateur Sleuth
The third novel in Blackwell’s Witchcraft series is as delectable as the previous two. Blending a mystery with all things paranormal and her customary light humor, this title doesn’t disappoint. Strong writing, a solid plot and a spunky, likable heroine add up to a cleverly written, top-notch cozy mystery.
It begins when a witch, Lily Ivory, is called by police detective Carlos Romero to help with a murder case of a man stabbed to death. The suspect turns out to be someone she knows, then a hex is found on her friend’s doorstep, and Lily begins to think there’s more to this murder case than meets the eye. Plus, now that her friend’s life is at risk, a determined Lily decides to catch the killer herself, hoping it is not too late. (OBSIDIAN, Jun., 336 pp., $7.99)
