I like my paranormal plausible, or at least not way into the woo-woo camp, and as I feared, book 2 was almost too much to finish (vengeful sorceress, really? I mean, I can see helping ghosts to move on, and who doesn’t want a house brownie to do their bidding, but a vindictive sorceress was pressing the edge of my tolerance level).
But, I am hooked by Jinx, her bff, the hot shoemaker next door, the Confederate military man ghost, Jinx’s four cats, the rat that lives in the storeroom, and the store itself, so I kept reading. Setting aside my annoyance with the vengeful sorceress angle, the rest of the book was just as satisfying as book 1. The plot is fast-paced, the storyline entertaining and exciting, and the ending was a surprise. I will be picking up book 3 in the series.
Witch at Odds picks up nicely where Witch on First left off. We find the shop renovations not going as smoothly as the girls hoped, particularly since they didn't run it by Myrtle, the magic sentient building that they and the store resides in. And because there's no one to train Jinx in her magic she takes a very 21st century approach to figuring it all out. She Google's it - or rather, she uses the internet to formulate a plan to help set the spirits at the cemetery at peace by googling spells. And as most stories in the fantasy/fiction genre normally tend to lean, all does not go smoothly, and an adventure begins.
I loved this book. With the introduction of new characters, the fleshing out of the main cast, and the strong supporting characters, Juliette Harper has done wonderful job. And while there were moments that were kind of obvious and you saw coming a mile away, it was never not enjoyable.
My strongest gripes are the proofreading was done poorly (there were several typographical and syntax errors) and that this wasn't really a mystery, it was more an adventure with bits of thriller or suspense woven in. This wasn't a "who done it?", it's a "how do we fix it?"
Be clear it's still a great book and a wonderful read, but not a mystery. Not to me anyway.
That said I would recommend this book even as a stand alone with no need to read the first book to understand what's going on (though it does help, and you'd be missing out). The amount of heart warming moments made this a great read. I hope you enjoy.
We learn a lot about the supernatural going ons in the community, and in fact, at this point we know many things that Jinx and Tori haven't even imagined! The characters (old and new) in this book are well developed and interesting. I was captivated by Darby, almost in tears when Jinx meets her many great-grandmother, and fascinated to get to know Myrtle. The story from beginning to end was filled with surprises. A few editing slips did not affect the enjoyment of the book or the desire to read the next book in the series.
It is refreshing to see this interpretation of witchcraft among us, and the author certainly makes it seem real! Or maybe I just suspended reality because it was such a fun book to read. In any case, I would recommend this to all ages of witchcraft lovers. While it doesn't rely on book 1 being read, thanks to careful addition of detailed explanations along the way, it certainly is more enjoyable if you read the books in order!

I love Jinx and Tori. They seemed to really click in this book. I think it was fantastic having the pair of them together for this adventure. Learning more about Chase was good too.
I found this to be a really good read.
