Wishcrafter Darcy Merriweather and Sheriff Nick Sawyer are soon to be wed. It seems as though their road to matrimony won’t be smooth as murder, arson, and many secrets rear their ugly heads in The Enchanted Village.

Divinitea Cottage, where Darcy’s bridal luncheon is being held, goes up in flames before the bride-to-be and her younger sister, Harper, arrive. All of the guests escape unharmed, but Leyla Noble, one of the partners in the tea shop, is found dead inside the building. Yet the fire isn’t what killed her-- she was strangled to death.

Broomcrafter Dorothy Hansel Dewit nurtured her bitterness with cruel intentions, especially toward Leyla and her cousin, Amanda Goodwin. Leyla and Amanda had purchased the cottage and opened Divinitea Cottage in the building Dorothy had wanted for a shop of her own. Dorothy has a reputation as a firebug, making her the prime suspect.

It strikes Darcy and Nick that this is too obvious. Someone is setting Dorothy up. Or are they? The situation becomes more complex after a psychic from the Firelight Psychic Festival vanishes, and the more questions she asks, the more questions Darcy has. Everyone has some secret or something to hide, and finding the killer this time could derail the wedding plans or perhaps even cost her life.

I have loved each and every book in this series. The stories, the characters, the setting of The Enchanted Village are perfect. I have embraced the magic and the wonder that Heather Blake has spun into all of the tales. This is just the right book to end the series with closure. Happy closure.

When I first read that this is indeed the last of the Witchcraft Mysteries my heart sank. I came to the realization that as avid readers we have all been blessed to have had the opportunity to get to know Darcy and Harper and Ve and Nick and Mimi and so many others. All of the books will retain a special place on my bookshelves for years to come.

It is said that when one door closes another will open. I hope this holds true for books as well. The Wishcraft Mystery series is over, but in my heart, I know that Heather Blake will soon open a door to share new characters and new stories. I will eagerly await whatever comes next.

Thank you, Heather, for creating these books. Thank you to Crooked Lane for publishing some of the works of this talented author.
