It Takes a Witch by Heather Blake (2012)

February 14, 2012 at 9:24 am (cozy mystery, fantasy)

I can’t find parts of the basic premise credible – witches with hereditary powers have kept this fact a secret for hundreds of years? Considering what happened with the wombat, I really doubt it.

However, the book has a nice breezy style and diverse and interesting characters, and the murder mystery’s not bad either. I could wish for less ignorance being forced on the main character, Darcy, but I suppose it’s a reasonably effective way to avoid the dreaded infodump.

I can’t imagine why they put a cover on it that looks like it’s aimed at teenagers, especially since Darcy is pushing thirty, but whatever.

All in all, pretty good light reading.
