Review: Be Careful What You Witch For by: Dawn Eastman

Pages: 293
Series: A Family Fortune Mystery #2

Description:

Leaving a traumatic police career behind, Clyde Fortune has returned to her seemingly quiet hometown of Crystal Haven, Michigan. In spite of the psychic powers of its residents, there’s no telling what trouble is brewing in this burg…

The highlight of this year's fall festival in Crystal Haven is a bonfire with a witch’s cauldron resting over it. Clyde’s best friend, Diana, leads a ritual to divine the future, but it seems no one foresees that one of their own will drop dead—or that Diana will be a prime suspect.

Clyde already has her hands full with her eccentric family, runaway nephew, and burgeoning secret romance with a hunky homicide detective. But after another coven member is attacked, Clyde suspects there’s a witch hunt afoot and focuses her psychic and sleuthing skills to clear her friend’s name and catch a killer.

My Thoughts: 

This book follows Clyde Fortune who in the beginning is attending a pagan ceremony when not far into her best friend Diana's friend Rafe winds up having an allergic reaction and dying.  It's up to Clyde and Diana to figure out what is going on and who gave Rafe the fatal peanuts that triggered his allergies.

Also Seth Clyde's nephew shows up after he left his home to visit her.  Seth has something to hide but what could it be?  Something that has even his mother concerned about his welfare but not enough to track him down.

This book like most cozy books is full of twists and turns and finding out what is going.  This one is different in the aspect that the theme is witches, and Wicca which makes it unique to most books out there.  I think this would be a great book to read in the fall and that most cozy readers will love the journey Ms. Eastman takes them on.
