Books: My Thoughts on It Takes A Witch (Wishcraft Mystery #1)

It Takes a Witch (A Wishcraft Mystery, #1)It Takes a Witch by Heather Blake

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Synopsis (from Goodreads): Darcy Merriweather and her sister, Harper, hail from a long line of witches who have the power to grant wishes using spells. They've come to Enchanted Village in Salem, Massachusetts, to join the family business, but they soon find themselves knee deep in murder...

Until three weeks ago, Darcy and Harper were working dead-end jobs and trying to put their troubles behind them. Then their aunt Velma delivered a bombshell: They're actually Wishcrafters - witches with the power to grant wishes with a mere spell. Wanting a fresh start, they head to their aunt's magic-themed tourist town to master their newfound skills.

But their magic fails them when a wannabe witch turns up dead - strangled with Aunt Ve's scarf - and Ve's sweetheart, Sylar, is found looming over the body. Ve is standing by her man, but Darcy overheard Skylar wish that the victim would disappear - forever. With Harper distracted by her handsome new crush, Darcy is determined to sleuth her way to the truth. But it'll take more than a wish to unravel this mystery....

This was one of the #Book1CoziesClub picks for the month and I really enjoyed it! First off, I loved their last name, even though some may find it eye-rolly (Merryweather was my favorite of the fairies in Disney's Sleeping Beauty growing up). I enjoyed the fact that as Darcy was learning things about her powers and the community, I was learning along side her. Trying to unravel the mystery kept me intrigued and I did not know who the culprit was until it was revealed. There are definitely signs of a romance brewing and I really want to see where that goes. The mystery tied up nicely and the book left on a very interesting tidbit. I definitely will be continuing with this series.
