This, the seventh outing for the Witch P I, sees Jill Gooder dealing with art theft, mysterious hauntings, a missing teenager, and Grandma’s bid to be elected to the Candleford Town Council. It offers more doses of Jill’s romantic entanglements (or, more accurately her lack of love-life), and dealings with the talking, one-eyed cat, Winky.
Although the mysteries that Jill is faced with might be different, the basic formula for ‘…When The Floodgates Opened’ is the same as the earlier books in the series. Blueberry muffins, custard creams, and child-like puns still feature heavily, and the addition of Hamlet, the book-loving hamster, is perhaps a step too far. That said, it’s well produced, light-reading, and Ms Abbott even attempts to rectify some of the plotting inconsistencies surrounding the issue of time standing still in the fantastical town of Candleford. However, I’m not sure that Jill simply forgetting about the suspension of time plastered-over that particular gaping hole with any conviction!
Overall, I enjoyed the first few books, but have to say I found this, and the previous book in the series, a little too repetitive and lacking the invention of the early volumes. Not a bad read, but it doesn’t inspire me to purchase book eight.
Our intrepid PI Jill Gooder springs into action when a priceless antique is stolen, Mrs V disappears, magic is needed to help a young girl at school, and Jill winds up in jail. Trouble with the Twins, with Kathy's children and Grandma stands for election to the Council. It all ends too soon.
Stories are well written, with mystery, adventure, and humor. I loved all the books of the series and this book is no exception. I highly recommend reading it. Looking forward to the next one!
