Blake once again delights readers with a new installment in
the Wishcraft Mystery series, featuring protagonist Darcy
Darcy runs a personal concierge company and
is hired to provide a variety of services. Abby Stillwell
has hired her to organize and run the Wicked Mad Dash, an
annual competitive run that takes place in the Enchanted Village,
where most of the population is some sort of Crafter or other.
There are enough varieties of Crafters to keep things very
interesting, to say the least!
Abby is murdered on the day of the race, and
given her previous experience in solving murders in the Enchanted
Village, Darcy puts her sleuthing skills to good use in order
to track down the guilty party. As the story unfolds things
become more complicated and confusing and it's difficult to
figure out who did what, when and why. There are real relationships,
relationships that are a ruse to cover other relationships,
a likely embezzlement plot, and allegations of an athlete
using performance enhancers.
A touch of magic may be just what is needed
to get to the truth, but is it enough to protect Darcy and
her family and friends from the evil that is lurking in the
heart of a killer?
A true cozy with the addition of some good
magic serves to make this latest Wishcraft Mystery a must-read
this summer. It is suitable for ages teen on up, and will
likely stir the reader to read all of the previous books in
the series while Ms. Blake is busy (hopefully!) writing the
I absolutely adore this series and I think
you will, too!
