keywords/phrases: murder, witches, ghosts
mood reading: in the mood for a palate cleanser
bonus points: magical caution
This is the first book in the series to take place away from Goodsprings when Sam takes a much-needed vacation to the beach. And, of course, trouble follows her there. So her posse from Goodsprings comes to her, helping her solve the mystery that’s landed her in, of all places, jail.
While the story doesn’t really move the witches or the twins further in their stories, it’s a good read. The twins do learn more about their previously unknown heritage, which is interesting to read about. It also adds some new characters to the cast, in the form of Cassandra and Paula the parrot, the latter of whom has her own story.
I also loved that that the story touched on the idea of magical caution. With two fledgling witches in the mix, it felt like a good lesson!
