The atmosphere is there. Magically, I fail to see how magic users have remained undetected with such obvious impossible things like buildings and people popping up suddenly. Also, seems as if Winters couldn't decide if learning to do magic was intuitive or needed instruction.
As to the MC Haley, as a 'tec she is rather lacking. Her reasons for suspecting or not suspecting someone have more to do with how she feels about them, and only a distant relationship with the evidence. Furthermore, while she characterized herself as a rebel, I saw little proof of it. Especially where her grandmother was concerned. If ever there was a manipulating, over-controlling old lady set on running not only her life but the town's, that grandmother is it. But Haley puts up with it a lot more tamely than I would have and I don't consider myself a rebel.
Well, what of the mystery then? Despite the obfuscation of Haley's past and the demons, it was IMHO still all too obvious. All the more so when a suspect is dismissed for no real reason.
This book had a lot of atmosphere with an interesting dash of magic. It was good enough that I didn't mind finishing it. But a good mystery has 'tec puzzling over clues (along with the reader), until finally figuring out the answer to a less than obvious solution, but one that makes perfect sense once revealed. This book doesn't even come close.
While there is a murder mystery in this book, it is in some sense the minor mystery while the major one is Haley's full identity and what has happened to her. This mystery is ongoing and is more than enough to pull the reader into the next book. However, it is possible that some readers will be dissatisfied with the rather minor role the actual murder and its solution take in the book if they are avid mystery readers.
Also on the downside, there is a certain frustration in the main character that tends to leak over to the reader. This is a double edged sword; the frustration pushes the reader from page to page, but there was for me a bit of irritation that we were not getting the answers a little faster. Hopefully, that will subside in the next book in the series, and I suppose that it does speak to the skill of the writer when I so clearly feel what her character is feeling. All in all, this is much better than your average cozy, and I've already downloaded the next book.
