The Witch and the Dead

Wishcraft Mystery, #7

The Wishcraft Mystery Series is one of my favorites, great characters, well written stories...and the touch of the paranormal I adore in my cozies.

Darcy and Nick's relationship has progressed throughout the series and now they are taking the next step and moving in together.

While preparing to move from her Aunt Ve's house a dusty old skeleton is found in the garage behind decades of things. Turns out it is Aunt Ve's husband Miles Babbage who has been missing for thrity years.

Darcy has to investigate, not just to clear her Aunt's name, but to make sure the magic is protected.

Secrets and revelations are the main theme to this book- we learn a lot while getting hints at what is to come in future books.

I highly recommend this series.

Book Blurb for The Witch and the Dead

The national bestselling author of Gone with the Witch returns as wish-granting witch Darcy Merriweather uncovers dangerous skeletons in the closet—and the garage....

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 her aunt isn’t looking at a spell behind bars.
