Darcy Merriweather and her sister Harper have recently moved from Ohio to the Enchanted Village in Salem, MA to live with their Aunt Ve. They just discovered that they are "wishcrafters" (witches who can grant wishes) and have decided to help their aunt with the family business. They both need a new start and here was one handed to them on the proverbial platter.

"As You Wish", Aunt Ve's business is, to mortal eyes, a business that helps with all tasks from finding wombat pinata's to dressing up as tooth fairy's for a child's first tooth. They help clean out apartment's and deliver packages. It is the magical part that gets very complicated for their mother who was a wishcrafter died when they were young and they were not trained in the ways of the craft so all of a sudden they are learning all about family history and the do's and don'ts of magic and it is a really funny experience.

The Enchanted Village is part mortal and part magical and their are bakecrafters, lawcrafters, and spellcrafters. There seems to be a pickpocket in town and so the business association has hired a private investigator to help find the pickpocket and while that meeting is happening and Darcy and Harper are being introduced to everyone -- a murder takes place in the back alley.

This is a fun story with lots of characters who are truly characters! I eagerly look forward to the next one to come out for I can easily say it will be another fun romp to the Enchanted Village!
