A few other January reads

Reviewed by: Kathy Fisher

IT TAKES A WITCH is the first Wishcraft Mystery by Heather Blake. This is a great new series about witches and commoners. It is lighthearted and yet provides a solid mystery with a twist. This series is different than other mystery series that have a touch of paranormal. Definitely one to pick up and continue to read. Enjoyable and interesting.

A CLAUSE FOR MURDER by Jill Shure is a mystery full of drama. A nice alternate to the predictable mystery reads, Jill writes a book full of strong women, lust, and mayhem. Perfect combinations for a nice, quick read. The characters have a tension that sizzles off the pages whether it is through hot sex, or jealousy. A good by the fire read.
