A light, fun read. It has it's funny moments, with a bit of a murder mystery and some witchcraft thrown in.

So far the book is good. but the story arc of having the main female character torn between the slightly aloof straight laced cop and the evident high-profile-bad-boy is rather tired d

Margaret Mary-Catherine O’Neill (Maggie), disgruntled bookkeeper and ironic Hoosier, is not living her best life, trundling back and forth between her dismal collections job and her basement apartment in her small town in the middle of the Northern Bible Belt.

All of that changes when Maggie meets the mysterious Felicity Dow, owner of a curio shop called Enchantments, who is also a practicing witch. Maggie accepts a job at the shop, and almost immediately she is pulled into a murder investigation. As she works to exonerate the main suspect in the murder, Maggie is also dealing with the awakening of her latent psychic abilities. Of course. There are hints of romance, with two gorgeous men vying for her affection.

The Trouble With Magic isn’t perfect; there is some awkwardness as we meet Felicity and her friend Marcus, the pace is a bit uneven, and the cliffhanger at the end is just plopped into the last three or four paragraphs with no previous groundwork laid, but the book mostly improves as it moves forward. Felicity’s Mary Poppins speaking style smoothes out, the pace improves, and Maggie’s voice is authentic and relatable. It’s a solid 3-3.5 stars, but I awarded a fourth star because I didn’t guess the killer. I will be reading more of this series.

Maggie is just getting used to the idea that she may be a witch when she is drawn again into a murder mystery. Amanda is the kind of girl who loves to make you hate her so when she dies, suspects abound. Maggie is drawn into the mystery by Amanda's mom who asks for help. What else can she do?

These books are fluff, but fun fluff.
