*Starred Review* When Cass Shipton, a Wiccan, is invited to speak to a neighborhood church's Ladies' League, she has no idea that -hemlock-laced brownies are on the menu. Not everyone survives the murder attempt, and soon Cass, owner of Earthlore Herbal Preparations and Cruelty-Free Cosmetics, and her brave Wiccan cohorts--wise woman-librarian Fiona Ritchie, doll designer Deidre Ryan, wealthy animal advocate Heather Devlin, and television chef Phillipa Stern--are on the case. The good reverend, heir to a fortune, might be the target, and humor and suspense are skillfully blended as the Wiccans teach the minister's wife some tricks of their trade to protect her and her husband from evil. A selection of Riccio's wonderful recurring characters add to the fun, including Freddie, the young telekinetic computer whiz; Tip, a Native American teenager and expert tracker; Cass' Greek husband, Joe, a militant Greenpeace activist; and Scruffy, the sassy, telepathic pooch. This is the fourth in Riccio's delightful series about a crime-solving coven founded by the local branch librarian, following The Divine Circle of Ladies Making Mischief (2005). A fifth cozy is on the way. Shelley Mosley

I loved the book's opening - a scene at Heather's manse, a gorgeous setting that is very enticing. I could almost taste the champagne, smell the chlorine in the swimming pool and taste the minis cannoli.
There is always so much going on in these books, but I enjoy that because it reflects real life: pets, kids, errands, professional commitments, neighbors, community work, personal interests and inner lives all gloriously interwoven by the shore of Plymouth, MA.
This is an unusual series, because the ladies of the circle vary in age, are far from perfect, gorgeous or exotic, and because the author's writing style is slightly eccentric, often meandering, with lots of dialogue and descriptions of daily life, magical practices, good food intertwined plots.
Cass Shipton, the main character, communicates w/her dog, has visions and makes decisions both wise and risky, just like many of us do. She atracts those in trouble and steps up to the plate bravely and resourcefully.
If you're up for a fun, engaging, mature read that, like character Fiona, is a eccentric but altogether charming, read this book - & then read the others. Join the cult following that this series has and enjoy!
