Apparently there is a series of these “Divine Circle” books. Five ladies in modern Massachusetts who have formed a wiccan where they follow the old ceremonies of the ancient Wiccan way. They are the “good witches” and each has her specialties. Cas (main character) is somewhat clairvoyant and can talk to her dog Scruffy. Anyway, the ladies only use their “powers” for good…. But of course they get caught up in interesting cases. The there are two in this book: 1. A young woman with a son is hiding ...more

I read and enjoyed earlier books in this series, so I was looking forward to reading "Divine Circle of Ladies Making Mischief," but I found it difficult reading.

There were quite a few subplots, which I thought would lead somewhere but most just fizzled, and only a few actually had to do with the main plot. In fact, though, there are actually three main plots:
the pig farm, deaths at the rehab hospital, and a young woman, her son Hari and her abusive Saudi husband. These are all introduced near t

Wonderful book! The story comes back to the Circle of Five, and I adored it as much as the first two! A lot of laughs, sniffles, panic and outrage when reading this book. You get so into the characters, you can't help it. You may learn who the 'bad guy' is, thanks to Cass, but it's getting to the end and how it all goes down that keeps you reading. The plot is subtle, and has an easy flow, and your own heart-rate kicks up at the climax of the story. I know mine did! The ending was perfect and sw ...more

I have to say, the book has a cute premise and very likable characters, but do all her books have THIS MANY PLOT lines? YIKES! It was a nightmare keeping track of all the mystery, intrique and chaos in the book - and unfortunately just the sheer speed and quantity of craziness made it hard to keep track of anything.

I liked it, but it was a relief to finish it!

Amazing as are all of Dolores Stewart Riccio's books. She has a quirky, friendly, thoughtful style and her characters are all people I would love to know, especially Fiona! I treasure her books, and eagerly await the next one. Shame on any publisher who doesn't buy her manuscripts!

This book is cute. It is about a group of crime fighting witches. Found it at a book sale, paid like a quarter for it, so it was a quarter well spent. Looks like she has a series, so I would be interested in reading those.

I enjoy this series with each book I read, for me the books are a lighthearted read with a nice mystery tossed in among the witchcraft. What more can a Witch wish for.

Nice, easy read, but geez- if you don't adopt all dogs and feed them the highest-quality people food, you deserve to be shot.

Didn't like is mess of a book. Too many characters with back story, goofy plot, hocus pocus, blah, blah.
