Be Careful What You Witch For

A Family Fortune Mystery, #2

Dawn Eastman continues her Family Fortune cozy paranormal series with "Be Careful What You Witch For". Crystal Haven is a community of psychics, tarot card readers and shops that sell items to tourist that pertain to their interest in the paranormal. “Clyde” is an ex-policewoman who has returned to her hometown and is trying to deal with her own psychic abilities, as well as rekindle a romance with Mac, a detective and her old flame. The story kicks off with a Samhain Ceremony during which a Wiccan leader keels over and dies, and it’s determined it wasn't from natural causes. Clyde becomes involved (much to Mac’s dismay) when her best friend’s brother is accused of the crime.

The series is engaging and the characters are delightfully quirky. This particular story featured quite a few red herrings, leaving you guessing until the end. If you like a blend of the paranormal with your cozy, definitely give this series a try! Four paws! – Rocco Lotempio

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.
