Entertaining, though once the cast was laid out it was painfully obvious who the crook was. And for goodness sake, these ladies need a keeper, or several. Not since Trixie Belden has any amateur sleuth taken such foolish risks-- and unlike Trixie, not everyone comes out safe and sound. This particular volume reminded me, for some reason, of Charlotte MacLeod, specifically the Peter Shandy series.

This was my first in this series, and I loved it. Five unique ladies practice Wiccan and are good witches. Each character has her own personality an power. Together they are awesome crime stoppers who try not to hurt any one. Now to find the first in this series.

One thing I really like about these books is that they take place over a series of months, or sometimes the better part of a year rather than just a few days or weeks. Most crimes and murders are not solved within a matter of days or even weeks. I love the characters, it has been well over a year maybe even two since I read the previous book in this series and I felt like I fell right back into step with them as if no time had passed.

The cover of this book doesn't do it justice, and doesn't mak

A fun book about a close knit circle of Wiccan women who band together to solve the case of a local repeat poisoner. The story focused on the women and their relationships with each other and how they solved the crime of the poisonings in the town. For a quick and entertaining read I shall pick up a few more of Riccio's novels.

My charming Wiccan crime stoppers are at it again in this latest installment of the Cass Shipton series. The ending is somewhat less satisfactory than the ladies would like but it is alas a realistic one. It was wonderful to finish reading it on a Solstice night. Can't wait for the next one!

This one was good - maybe not as good as the first 3. Not nearly as much "high-jinx" as the last. Still all in all a good read - love the series - love the characters. I wish I could meet the ladies that inspired Ms. Riccio's characters...you know they have to exist somewhere. ;)

I love this series. The distinct personalities of every character (human or not) shine through. The Wiccan practices are believable and portrayed with realism. Fantastic author
