Holly Boldt is a witch with a problem. She has been banished to a halfway house in Oregon and has to make her way in the human world. Her landlord is a ghost and her roommates a shifter and a vampire who have also been banished. When her boss is murdered she has to figure it out to help her human friend.
I liked the concept and the execution. For the most part well written and well plotted. Some humor, some pathos. Nice assortment of fairly quirky characters and as the first in the series this book does a good job of giving you a picture of the setting. The author seems to understand the mechanics of good storytelling.
As a newcomer to what is becoming a crowded field (Witch Mysteries) Danielle has done a good job of staking her claim to this genre. I hope the next books in the series will be as well done as the first. That is always the question when you commit to a new author and a new series. I look forward to the next book in the series.
FYI there is a link in the book for a free prequel which explains how Holly came to be in the predicament she is in.
Holly Bolt is not your normal Witch. She has been banished to Beechwood Harbor. I found Holly to be a delightful character with a mysterious past. I am wonder why Holly is banished. I did read another reviews review and they mentioned a prequel that explains this, so I’ll have to go and find it.
All the secondary characters were amusing and fun. It’s a great cast that includes a shifter, a vampire and a ghost plus a pesky P.I..
Their is a possible love interest or two, but this is not a romance book. It’s a mystery. A murder occurs, a friend is the main suspect, and Holly has a desire to find the true culprit to help her friend out.
Murder’s a Witch is a light magical mystery full of twists and turns. I’m curious to see what happens next with this cast of characters.
Rated: 4 Stars
So, not only must she watch out for this guy, but a dead body turns up and her best friend (which happens to be human) is the prime suspect. Can she use her crafty magic to help her out of it? That along with the trusting help of a werewolf shifter hottie?
I liked how Holly was smart and witty and that she knew how to cast a good spell. Story was a page-turner from start to finish.
Crafty, whimsical, and magical!

ridiculous and silly. This author managed to keep to the former.
Holly finds a murder victim and tries to discover the killer. She enlists the help of her housemate, Adam, who is a
shifter (into a huge dog). Adam is a compulsive flirt, but is constantly fighting with another housemate, a female
vampire and drama queen. Holly has to keep the peace between them and also keep on good terms with their
ghost landlady! All good fun, especially when you include Holly's overweight but feisty familiar - a cat called Boots.
Holly has to be careful not to show her magic to humans, especially as she becomes involved with Nick,
who is a PI newly moved to the town. Nick is also interested in the paranormal and Holly has to pretend
ridicule that any such thing exists!
I would recommend this as a lighthearted, quirky read. The book can be read as a stand alone. There was
no sex or bad language and my only complaint is that it was a little short at 185 pages.
