Darcy Merriweather is a Wishcrafter. This means that she has the power to grant wishes to others. Life in the Enchanted Village is always busy and interesting, but with the Harvest Festival underway things get exciting. However, the murder of a young man, Michael Healy, an Illumicrafter, upsets the balance of things. When Michael's ghost imprints on Darcy, she is compelled to find out who killed him and why, and to stop the killer from striking again.

Who would kill such a nice young man and why? Does it have something to do with the unique black roses from a Floracrafter? It was strange how those roses died when Michael did. The same Floracrafter, the elderly Henrietta, claims to have a new fiancée- but does she really? No one has ever met him, and Darcy is hired to solve that mystery as well.

What I love the most about this series is that it transports me to such a unique setting, filled with eccentric and magical people. I enjoy learning all about the different types of Crafters. Author Blake is brilliant at creating new Crafters with different specialties and having them all fit together like many peas in the same pod.

With a well-crafted mystery (pun intended), a plethora of suspects, adorable animals, a smart little girl, a dash of romance, a pinch of angst, and magic that doesn't involve eye of newt or toe of frog, "The Good, the Bad and the Witchy" is a spell-binding read.
