Murder Lifts the Spirits

no. 2, Petra Paranormal Mysteries

This book can be downloaded and read in Apple Books on your Mac or iOS device.


Attorney Petra Rakowtiz thought her courtroom skills were magical... that is until this newbie witch realized what real magic was.

For the past two months Petra has made the Disclaimer Ranch her home, undergoing treatment and training for her fledgling powers. She’s focused on learning to be a good witch—no more accidental arsons. But when a fellow Ranch resident and wizard dies while arguing with Petra, the other program residents accuse her of murder by magic, and Petra must use all of her legal know-how to defend herself!

With a slew of suspects ranging from a convicted killer to a wanna-be Watson making wild accusations, Petra has her hands full. Not to mention the murder victim who returns in ghostly form, demanding that Petra find his killer. The clock is ticking as the other residents become targets and Petra finds herself going toe to toe with a murderer intent on not-so-magically making her disappear...for good!

Murder At The Ranch

I’m conflicted on this book. Don’t get me wrong, it’s still worthy of a read and four stars at least. The author thought of so much in writing it. I just felt overwhelmed with all the details and characters. That being said, I feel like if I had read the first one I would’ve had a better understanding of the characters, at least the heroine. Others may not feel like this. I do plan to read the first one. This book had well developed characters and some really great imagination on the creation of it all. It was a fun adventure.
