Destiny Maganti, a water witch, is a cocktail waitress at the tiki bar of a popular paranormal resort destination for mermaids, gorgons, elves, unicorns, and other magical folk vacationing on the shores of the gulf. “Maganti!!” But her boss is making her life challenging. Cassiel (Cass), former Angel of Temperance, has a chip on his shoulder...his wing. Having disgraced his family, he is now the resort’s manager as punishment. Several wonder who is being punished…Cass or those having to deal with him. Well, Karma has a way of butting in at the right time. The right time is heralded by an ear-piecing scream, remnants of a daiquiri pooling on the ground, and Cass slumped lifeless on the table. “So who manned, or womaned, up…” Everyone was looking at Destiny.
Along with a fascinating collection of fanciful characters, we have Tempest (Destiny’s black and white fox familiar) with whom she has a telepathic connection, Blake (executive director of the resort, ninth-level wizard, and former fiancé) with whom she still harbors anger and heartache, Bob (Bigfoot bartender) with whom she is friends, and Michael (Destiny’s older brother and agent with the Paranormal Criminal Investigations Bureau) for whom she has a protective nature. A romantic triangle may also add some tension. Destiny is made the interim resort manager, the optics not the best, but it allows her to go around the resort, ask questions, and gather clues. Blake knows she is well thought of and knows she is valuable to the investigation, but an angel was murdered…this magic is dangerous!
All this and the tropical setting… Tegan Maher has penned an entertaining first book in her Enchanted Coast Magical Mystery series. I personally enjoyed the magic and fanciful characters; it is fun to read, and imagine, all the different creatures: werewolves, fairies, gargoyles, selkies, and such. But it's just a fun, and can easily be overlooked for those less interested in the paranormal theme. Don't shy away. You will miss out on a well-written narrative, clever mystery, edge-of-your-beach-towel excitement, more than a few giggles, a delightful sidekick familiar, and rich characters with very human attributes. Some issues are left unresolved and might be used as a running mystery throughout the series. Fine with me, I'm eager to join the fairies again on the beach with a tropical drink in hand…no daiquiri, please!
BTW, Destiny is the cousin of my buddy, Cordelia, the sheriff of Castle’s Bluff, and a witch/werewolf hybrid. So count on some major ass kicking action.
And Tegan, you know I love you, sugar, but please finish the next Cordelia book before they ship me to the old folks home!!

book two is better, with some new magical characters.
