| Clyde Fortune can’t help being
psychic. It runs in her family. Clyde is also an ex-cop, which
comes in handy when her best friend Diana Moonward becomes a
prime suspect in a murder case. Diana was in charge of the annual
Fall Fun Fest in Crystal Haven, Michigan, a town aptly named
for the numerous psychics residing there. During a Wiccan Samhain
ceremony held during the festivities, the coven leader dies.
Most everyone in town knew he had an allergy and the peanut
oil discovered on the bread Donna prepared reveals his death
When Diana is accused, Clyde is determined to prove Diana’s
innocence. Clyde’s old beau, Mac, a homicide detective
with the Ottawa County Sheriff’s Department, helps to
find other suspects with solid motives. In the meantime, Clyde
and Mac attempt to rekindle their past relationship, but the
sudden arrival of Clyde’s nephew Seth and his dog Tuffy
further complicates their romantic plans.
This is a wonderful novel about a charming town filled with
zany characters and enough motives to keep the mystery alive.
I love the way Ms. Eastman handles the relationship between
Clyde and Mac. Mac obviously adores Clyde, but he’s willing
to take his time until she comes around. Clyde wants a deeper
relationship, but having young Seth around adds to her concern.
With the help of elderly Neila Whittle, Clyde is learning to
develop her skills of predicting the future through dreams,
while young Seth has special abilities of his own.
Be Careful What You Witch For is an intriguing mystery.
The divergent attitudes toward witchcraft and several surprising
revelations are handled extremely well, and resulted in an exciting
story that kept me entertained until the very last page
