Barrett lives in Salem, Massachusetts, where she works as
a reporter and sidelines as an amateur sleuth. When Professor
Samuel Bond is murdered and Assistant Professor Cody McGinnis

help from her Aunt Ibby, her clairvoyant cat, O’Ryan,
and her boyfriend, Detective Pete Mondello, Lee races to find
a killer before anyone else becomes a victim.
live fairly close to Salem, so this series has long been of
special interest to me. Carol Perry does a very good job of
setting the stage for how Salem looks and feels. The characters
are all interesting, and it’s been fun over the course
of 10 books now to read about how their relationships grow
murder is a copycat killing of a crime committed nearly two
hundred years ago, and that gives it an unusual twist. The
idea of a similar murder in the past is intriguing, and setting
that in Salem makes for a great read.
the newest Witch City Mystery, Murder Take Two is
an enjoyable cozy read with a realistic feel for Salem, Massachusetts.
You don’t have to be a psychic to foresee what a great
read this would be for Halloween Season, and that it would
be a perfect selection for a book club. Highly recommended
as a stand-alone read but I think you’ll want to read
the previous nine books as well!
