To Catch a Witch: A Wishcraft Mystery
Darcy Merriweather is in charge of Enchanted Village’s Wicked Mad Dash–an opportunity of a lifetime that takes a bitter turn when her friend Abby disappears, only for her body to be discovered hours later. Taking up the investigation, Darcy uncovers Abby’s secret plans to elope, an ex-boyfriend caught cheating, and a devastated roommate with secrets of her own. As if her matters couldn’t get worse, her mother makes a shocking confession: her sister’s health is worse than she claims, and Dorothy’s fury has only grown.
Heather Blake weaves various layers into the story, blending a mystery with family and witch struggles. Her family life gives her an emotional journey as she helps her sister cope with being sick while she remains determined to help her rekindle a relationship with an ex-boyfriend. Her magical life receives a shocking twist when her mother confesses a secret that changes everything. These different aspects of the story balance out for a well-crafted mystery that’s hard to put down. Witch politics is an underlying theme throughout as several of the witches are biased against mortals and a character dabbles with dark magic. The witches form a whole other society with rules and a system working in plain sight yet hidden from everyone mortal in the town. Bringing to life a vivid and charming world of magic with secrets, family, traditions, and familiars, To Catch a Witch is a magical mystery with a touch of whimsy, a dash of humor, and a lot of heart with charming and delightful characters.
To Catch a Witch is the eighth book in the Wishcraft Mystery series.
