“While Josie develops her witchcraft with the help of letters left by her grandmother, there are other changes happening in her new hometown. A retreat center is being built at the old mill site, and rumor has it that the location is cursed. That piques Josie’s interest almost as much as Sam Wilfred, handsome FBI agent and descendent of the town’s founder …
When Sam’s soon-to-be ex-wife, Fiona, goes missing at the same time that a bloodied weapon is found, Josie enlists her witchy insight, and her cat familiar, to clear Sam’s name. But then the mill project’s architect is found dead, and it’s clear that someone has been drawing up a vicious plan. Now Josie will have to divine her way out of fatal mischief, before this deadly trouble turns double …” – Amazon
The Witch Way Librarian Mysteries by Angela M. Sanders is becoming my favorite paranormal cozy mystery series. The way Josie uses the books to help her find answers and how they talk to her is many book lover’s dream… including mine. And I really enjoy how Rodney, her familiar, is sassy and actually helps her in the way that familiars do. In many other paranormal series it seems like the cat is just kind of there because witches are supposed to have cats.
There is a lot more character development in Seven-Year Witch and we also get to catch up with ones from the first book in the series, Bait and Witch. I really enjoyed how Sanders played around with Fiona’s disappearance and shows what a true sociopath acts like.
There’s still the question if Sam and Josie will get together, but if they don’t, there is so much going on in this series, I don’t feel like a love interest will be missed. Sanders also gives us a mysterious box, a crime with lots of red herrings and suspects, a twist, and a bit of a thrilling ending when Josie faces off with the killer.
If you’re looking for a paranormal cozy mystery series to enhance the Autumn season coming up, I highly recommend the Witch Way Librarian Mysteries!
