When you put it all together you have a delightful romance.mystery combo with surprising ends. A bit of this is just coming of age for Elle even though she is 35. A very good yarn indeed.
The ending is sort of a "I was afraid that was gonna happen" type thing and was very satisfying and I can't wait to get the next one.
I should point out one thing (and the reason I got the book)and that is the fact that although JR Rain is listed as an author along with Eve Paludan and Stuart Sharp but from the forward info it seems that this is Eve Paludan's book with a goodly amount of help from the other 2 authors and it seems to have worked but if you are looking for Vampire for Hire here, this ain't it but it is a good story and series opener.
Witchy Business is the first in the series and after finishing it, I immediately bought the next one and began reading it. I had to see what happened next.
The heroine, Elle, is an Enchantress and Insurance Investigator who often does work for the local coven. We know fairly early on that Elle's mother was a well-known, successful witch but we don't know what happened to her. We also know that Enchantresses are considered rare amongst the witches and Elle often makes comments about how little real power she has. Elle is hired for a case involving a stolen piece of art and things become interesting. She meets Niall Sampson and begins to question things she has known all of her life.
This is a very well written book, with interesting well-rounded characters. The action is fast-paced and I particularly enjoyed it being set in Edinburgh.
If you like your female heroines to be able to think for themselves and take care of themselves, without being too perfect or too one -dimensional, then this is definitely a must read for you.

Then I thought it might have been a love story, but that wasn't it, either. A man teaches her who she really is during the short times they are together, but she knows nothing really about him except for the small bits information that he chooses to reveal to her. She falls in love fast and says so, but from what I can tell, there isn't any real love behind what she's feeling. I didn't read any proof of it.
To me, it was a story of discovery for the protagonist. What she was taught to be true was a lie, and that's about as good as I can put it without spilling the spoilers.
I'd like to give it five stars, but the two reasons I gave in the above paragraphs are the reasons why I knocked it down a bit. That does not mean it's a terrible story. It's not, but for me, I felt a little deceived. It wasn't what the authors advertised.
But I gave it three stars because the writing was well done. A couple of contradictory things going on in the action sequence, but nothing that ruins the story. The story twist is VERY interesting, and I thought it was genius.
So, overall it was an okay read for me. Will I read another story by this author? Probably not.
