Description:


Everyone’s favorite retired witches from Spell Booked have returned and are diving into troubled waters to find a sinister sea witch…


WITCHY WOMAN


A sea witch has been leaving bodies in her wake up and down the Carolina coast, baffling authorities who are finding drowning victims with no water in their lungs. The fin-icky female will continue to kill young male witches until she finds her perfect man—the one who survives her mating ritual—so she can live for another hundred years. And now coven hopeful Brian Fuller is about to be ensnared in her net.


Retired witches Molly and Elsie, along with the ghost of Olivia and her daughter Dorothy, need all the help they can get to stop the sea witch. Aided by a selkie and a crème puff–craving mermaid, they’re determined to keep Brian out of her murky clutches. But are they all about to get in over their heads?

My Thoughts:

This book pretty much starts off where last one ended. Olivia,the ghost, Dorothy her daughter whose an earth witch, Molly and Elsie are still looking for the other two to take over their coven so they can retire and find their spellbook passed down through the generations.  Brian is hesitant to join their coven determined to remain a free witch who doesn't work with any coven's or groups.  Early on we learn about the Bone man and a deal struck with Molly and a sea witch whose killing witches men specifically. When Brian disappears it's up to find out what is going on with Brian and is it because of the sea witch?

I enjoy this serious written by the late Jim and Joyce Lavene.  I really love how they deal with the paranormal and add a mystery to it as well.  I found myself pulled in and had to continue this series more so when I was invited to be part of a tour for the next book!  This book was a real gem of a story and can't wait to see how it plays out in the next adventure!

Not use to thinking of witches as male. I think this is a fun cozy for Halloween.

Once again the Lavenes have come up with an interesting group of characters and a fast paced plot with enough twists and turns to make me keep reading.
