I should probably admit here that I have loved everything I've ever read by Heather Blake/Heather Webber, and that she is also one of the sweetest people I have ever met.
When I heard she was coming out with this series, I was highly excited and was even more excited when I scored an ARC via an online contest. Potions, witchiness, mystery? Surefire recipe for a winner of a book!
Well, (probably needless to say,) I wasn't disappointed. Loved it from the first word to the last. Carly Bell is a good witch, and believes in staying firmly on the side of white magic. Her cousin, not so much. Both run potions shops in their small town, and of course there's a bit of rivalry going on, but it is tied to a family mystery, as well.
When a dead body shows up in Carly's shop clutching a potion bottle, Carly's forced into desperate measures, including teaming up with her cousin, to solve the mystery and clear her name. Add to all this a town and family full of what my mama would have called "characters", and this is simply a delightful read. Don't miss it!
