I started this book this afternoon and could not put it down. It was almost like it put me under a spell!
Bay Winchester comes from a long line of witches and returns to her small town of Hemlock Cove as the editor of a small town newspaper. After discovering the body of a teenage boy strung up on a cross in the middle of a cornfield maze, she is plunged into a mystery spanning decades. When the body of a teenaged girl is discovered a few days later, killed in the same way as the first, Bay investigates with the help of her family, the ghosts of the victims, and the local police chief.
I really enjoyed this; the characters were cute (Love Aunt Tillie, who I kept imagining as Sophia from The Golden Girls) and the plot kept me on the edge of my seat. I loved how the family interacted with each other, their banter was funny and really set the tone for the book.
I'm hoping that the later books bring some character development for the aunts, and hopefully that will include Edith, who would fit right in with the Winchesters. But a great book, an enjoyable quick-paced read and a strong start to a new series.
