When the trio's leader Amanda, buys an antique clock at Enchantments, the true story starts. Amanda is found dead and everyone starts finding her killer. The story does not POP until Liss comes into this book. She is the glue to this series and without her it is not as enjoyable. Maggie grows as an empath, and learns she has more power that she thought. Marcus, a major player in the series, grows and we see his attraction to Maggie, but Maggie thinks that he and Liss are an item, so she does not see Marcus as a suiter. Maggie's sometime boyfriend policeman Tom returns. He does not understand the world of the metaphysical. Marcus is more Maggie's type, so we'll see how these relationship progresses. This book delves further into the metaphysical without being 'preachy'. This is a fine book and hope the series continues to grow.
Small town Hoosier Maggie O'Neill is slowly learning how to use her new powers and is making more friends since joining a ghost hunting society. Aside from a bit of confusion in her love life (choosing between the staid cop or the hot ghost hunter) and a small amount of spiritual energy bouncing around her apartment, all is well in Maggie's life. Things have gotten mostly back to normal since the murder in the first book, The Trouble With Magic and she hopes it stays that way. As we all know though, things never stay the same. When a popular but somewhat catty high school girl suddenly disappears, it puts a pall over Maggie's small town. After Amanda Roberson's body is found in local creek, Maggie is drawn to the investigation.
People think that small towns are like an open book; there are no secrets. But as Maggie soon discovers, there is always more to people than meets the eye. She learns things about her fellow residents, including the "innocent" victim, that she never wanted to know. After finding a memory card containing compromising photos of Amanda and an unknown male, Maggie gets more than she bargained for. Not only do the photos completely change the scope of her investigation but they also put her in danger. After a break in at her apartment it is clear that she is making someone a little nervous. It's the final confrontation though, that makes her a bit worried that she will not live to see the end result.
This series, while a bit tame compared to other paranormal fare, is delightful and entertaining. The characters are all very endearing and well developed.Read more ›
I also like to see the questioning of things. Its done tastefully and honestly. Ms. Alt pulled that part of quite well.
I also like seeing how things are going with Marcus I look forward to reading more of that.
This is my first review of any book here on Amazon and I read quite a bit. But I just felt moved to say what a good job I felt Ms. Alt did and its a joy to see her growth as a writer.
