Описание

When Darcy moved to Salem, Massachusetts, she never expected her life to change as drastically as it did. But within a short time, the Enchanted Village has become her home, its mystical residents have become her family, and As You Wish, the personal concierge business formerly run by her Aunt Ve, has become her calling. Still, the time has come for change, and for Darcy to move out of Aunt Ve's house.



Darcy's belongings are stashed in Aunt Ve's garage, alongside a mess of memories, forgotten possessions, and, to both Ve and Darcy's horror, a pile of old bones. It turns out they belong to Ve's long missing second husband. Now Darcy must unpack old secrets to solve a cold case and make sure that her aunt isn't looking at a spell behind bars.

    I read this for the Cozy Mystery square for Halloween Bingo

    I gasped. In a once-hidden nook created by a tower of boxes lay a skeleton fully dressed in men's clothing. By the thick layer of undisturbed dust covering the skeletal remains. I guessed he'd been there quite a long time.

    This is book seven in the Wishcraft Mystery series that follows Darcy, a witch, as she attempts to solve murder mysteries. It was a little overwhelming at first with a whole island of characters greeting me but once the family, friend, and side-eyeing relationships were realized, this turned into a super cozy mystery. This story begs to be accessorized with big fluffy socks and a big mug of hot chocolate.

    "I've been asked by the Elder to investigate the matter."

    The first half of the story is our heroine Darcy just taking a stroll through town and encountering people who help piece together the final days of Miles, the body found in her aunt's garage. Scandal and heartache get revealed with each discussion and our mystery is born. Since this is the seventh in the series the magical part of the story, the different kinds of witches living on the island, isn't stopped and explained. However, the way the author does great woven in explanations for any newcomers. The only thing I missed starting here was the initial excitement of some relationships just starting up, here Darcy's relationship with the town police chief is already established, while her sister Harper's relationship is going through a rough patch I couldn't truly feel as I didn't have an emotional tie to it.

    The large cast of characters were all wonderfully fleshed out, adding so much dimension to the story; I could happily read a story individually staring all of them. Darcy was easy to like and follow along with providing a great lens to view the story from. The author was able to touch on deeper subjects without weighing the story down in emotional angst. This was such a sweet, easy, entertaining, and kept me guessing for a while mystery with a tint of Fall/Halloween fun.

    While in the process of moving her things from Aunt Ve's garage to her new home (two doors down), Darcy comes across a skeleton, which turns out to be those of one of Ve's husbands. Years back, Ve had eloped but her husband suddenly disappeared, forcing her to put a public notice in the newspaper in order for her to divorce him.... In addition, Ve has no memory of what happened as another witch placed a "memory cleanse" spell upon her.As it turns out the man was a notorious womanizer and had many conquests among the women of the Enchanted Village, all of whom had reason to want him dead.Meanwhile the Elder's identity is revealed and Vince discovers w/ Glinda's help that his mother was indeed a witch.This was a light and easy read... so very easy that within 3 days of reading it, I'd forgotten what the plot was...

    Now that Darcy has been in the Enchanted Village for almost a year, a lot more things are clear. As she readies to move both her business, As You Wish, and herself into her new home, a skeleton is found in Aunt Ve's garage. It turns out to be another ex husband of Ve's, and the cold case winds around a lot of the long histories of some of the people of the village. I am curious about the direction Darcy's sister Harper is headed and the book ended on a wonderful personal note for Darcy. This has become a favorite long running series and I can't wait to read more about this hidden in plain sight, magical town.

    I love this series--they are fun, "cozy" mysteries--very idyllic and escapist. Darcy may be a bit almost "too good," but I still like her. I always like the good characters; I never admire the baddies. I read most of them a two or three years ago and hadn't realized two more had published, so listening to this novel was nice. I'm waiting for the next one to come available at the public library.
