I think this was the first book I've read written in present tense and I loved it. I'm usually not into mystery books, but I like this series. I enjoy the added fact that the main character practices witchcraft. Laurie Faria Stolarz has a great series going! And I give her many many many standing ovations for writing in the present tense. I am horrible at it and she was able to tell a wonderful story what seemed like it was written effortlessly in present tense. Word!
Also, Amber kills me! Her and PJ are the best characters! I wish they were real and were my friends :-p
