USA Today bestselling cozy mystery author Dakota Cassidy serves up mayhem and murder in How the Witch Stole Christmas, Book 5 of her bestselling series, Witchless in Seattle Mysteries
It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas--!
Er, not so much. . .
It's Christmas, and I, ex-witch, Stevie Cartwright declare this my favorite time of year! I love the decorations! The food! The Hallmark Channel holiday specials! This year promises to be better than ever because for the first time in a very long time, I'm going to have more than just Cheez Whiz, Triscuits and the wish to be surrounded by family and friends.
My carefully planned holiday bonanza includes all the usual suspects. My bat familiar Belfry, my dog Whiskey, my ever-present ghostly spy friends--dashing Brit Winterbottom, stalwart Russian Arkady and my parents.
However, nothing comes easy for this amateur sleuth, not even a neighborhood decorating contest. You know, the one I've been painstakingly prepping for months? Something goes horribly awry with my Christmas display (think bikini-clad carolers, pink flamingos and real, live turkeys) to start.
But the worst? The dead body of the famous Chef Pascal Le June in my nativity scene!
It becomes clear someone's trying to ruin my Christmas, and that someone must pay! But when Belfry goes missing, and the danger takes on a paranormal edge, I find I have more to lose than ever before. . .
This cozy mystery has a complete cast of oddball characters from witches to ghosts and bats to psychics. Witchless In Seattle Mysteries is a spin-off of Dakota Cassidy's bestselling paranormal romance series, A Paris, Texas Romance.
Slow start, fast finish
All 5 books in this series are kind of fun, with unique characters, unsavory villains and a heroine that you can root for. The problem is they all kind of have the same formula: something bad happens, 250 pages of anguish and clue hunting, a single or small number of revelation that clear up the mystery, and maybe 50 pages of all well that ends well cleanup. I'm not sure life is that structured. This just feels a bit formula driven and predictable.
Excellent book! I recommend this series of books as the stories are well written. You have a mystery, humor and family. Stevie, Win, Bel , Whiskey and even Stickler for Rules but you must not forget the Russian! The action from the ghosts helping Stevie is priceless! Read and enjoy as I am off to read the next book, " Ain't Love A Witch."
