This second outing of the "Bewitched series' continues the story of Maggie O'Dell. It is 2 months since the action of the 1st story took place. Liss (Maggie's boss at Enchantments)is still recovering from her sister's murder, and has left Maggie to deal with the shop. A trio from the local high school comes into Enchantments.
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.

I agree that this series has more meat than normal, but I keep waiting for Maggie to grow up. She is almost 30 years old, and she is totally cowed by her obnoxious mother and feels like "Kee-rect" is an appropriate answer to a question. I was happy to see that at the end of the novel Maggie called on her powers to protect herself, but despaired that she was in the situation in the first place because she allowed a murderer to boss her around. She also seems to be leaning toward a romance with a person who not only doesn't believe in her power but actually belittles it and her. Please make her more age appropriate in the next novel.

A Charmed Death is the second in the Bewitching Mystery series. Fun and lighthearted, but with enough serious to hold my attention, this series is quickly becoming addicting.

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.

There's a dark paranormal cloud hanging over Stony Mill, and Maggie O'Neill is troubled by it, almost as much as she's troubled by the spirits who seem to inhabit her apartment. When a group of teens visits Enchantments and one of them ends up dead, Maggie finds herself embroiled in the mystery. Suspense is high, not only during the search for the killer but during a ghost hunt at a haunted cemetery as well. And between Tom the policeman, and Marcus, a friend who seems to want to be more, the sexual tension in A CHARMED DEATH is palpable. I have especially enjoyed watching Maggie grow into her mystical persona, which makes for a startling and rewarding climax in this book. I'm just sorry that I have to wait for HEX MARKS THE SPOT. Read Madelyn Alt and enjoy!

I thoroughly enjoyed this book. I have to agree with the first reviewer who said it was better than the first- it really was. I even said that to myself at the end. I like seeing the growth of Maggie's character and the development of some complications in her life.

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.

This is a fun series. The main character is interesting and the mysteries fun, especially for cozy lovers. I bought used through Amazon at a great price. The book came quickly and was in good shape for a used book.
