To Catch a Witch and a Witch to Remember completed the arc I always had in mind, and I've turned down an offer to write more Wish books. This was always how it was supposed to end--and I hope everyone finds it as satisfying as I do.

Dollycas’s Thoughts

Wedding bells will soon be ringing for wishcrafter Darcy Merriweather and Police Chief Nick Sawyer and almost everyone in the Enchanted Village is excited about it. Someone set fire to the Divinitea Cottage Tea Room minutes before Darcy arrived for her bridal luncheon. Sadly, the owner Leyna Noble did not make it out alive, but it wasn’t the smoke or fire that did her in. She was strangled!

Darcy’s prime suspect is Dorothy Hansel Dewitt, a truly wicked witch and fire is her mod

The ultimate good vs evil is the theme wound throughout the storyline of this installment of the Wishcraft Mystery series. Wonderful things are on the horizon, but evil is lurking to tear it all apart. The gang must work together to overcome and have a future. Excellent character development has you invested in the outcome and the well thought out plot will have you flipping pages to figure out the intrigue!

A Witch to Remember by Heather Blake is the final book in the Wishcraft series. It was a bittersweet end to this favorite series for me. All the subplots were wrapped up, Darcy and Nick were married and my favorite character that I loved to hate got what they deserved. I will miss this series but I was very pleased with this twisted and complex story.

I can't believe this is the last book in this series. I have loved reading this series and seeing the characters grow. In this book Darcy and Nick are getting married. The tea room where Darcy was having her bridal luncheon catches fire just before Darcy and her sister, Harper, arrive. The owner appears to have dies in the fire but it is later revealed that she was strangled before the fire started. Most of the town thinks it was Dorothy, a truly evil witch that Darcy has had problems with befor ...more

This series stared as a village with some magic but has become more and more magic with familiars, spells and lots of danger. The wish granting witch and the police chief are finally getting married. This book would be better for someone who is into magic or enjoys reading about witchcraft and spells.

I just love this series! One of my favorite in the cozy genre.
I’m not sure if this is the last book in the series, but it feels like it could be. So many things were exposed, so many things tied up and we were left with a very happy ending for Darcy and Nick. I liked how things changed with the Elder and the Witch Council, I think things are for the better there. I’m happy that one person who was a pain in the ass for the community is no longer around to cause trouble. I’m also very happy with how a couple characters have changed for the better. But the be ...more

The Enchanted Village always has a touch of magic about it, but the buzz of excitement over the wedding between wish-granting witch Darcy and Police Chief Nick Sawyer is positively electric. With every spellbinding detail planned to perfection all that’s left is to sit back and let wishes come true. But Darcy’s dream wedding is threatened when the Divinitea Cottage, the tea room hosting her bridal luncheon, goes up in flames, revealing the strangled body of the owner, Leyna Noble.

This is the last installment in this series, and it was a 3.5/3.75 for me, but for review purposes I bumped it up to a 4 SOLELY for the last few paragraphs with the familiars. I'm angry at myself for not catching on earlier in the book the name similarities and true identity of the mysterious Hildie, who appears to Darcy early on in the story to give her a magical talisman. Side note, a name I wish would make a come back. As far as the mystery went, it was predictable. The murderer was pretty ob ...more

This has to be one of my all-time favorite cozy mystery series. I have spent many hours happily devouring each new book in the series as it was released. This one, I put off reading for a bit because I knew it would be the last time I would be visiting Darcy, Nick, Mimi, Archie, Ve, Harper and the rest of the residents of the Enchanted Village as this is the final book in the series. I borrowed this book from the library and started reading it with a bit of sadness. However, once again, Heather ...more

I am so sad to see this series end. I will say that the author did a great job of tying everything up. I even found myself getting choked up on a few spots. This is the first time that I have actually did a good job of actually suspecting the right person of course it was one of three that I thought it might be. All of my favorite characters including Pepe and Mrs. P were present and a few I do not care for, but were necessary for the story. This series has been a source of enjoyment.

This book is all about secrets. It seems everyone has them in this story. Darcy Merriweather is getting married, Harper is having a very important birthday and their mother has a big event too. Of course there is a death with a very obvious suspect but Darcy isn't sure the suspect is the correct one so she continues asking questions. The book was a quick easy read. ...more

I loved this book! I enjoy when an author plans out a book series and Heather Blake definitely took the time to do that with this series. If this is your first look at these books, I recommend starting with book 1 and reading them in order. This book is about the upcoming wedding of Darcy & Nick and the Elder Renewal ceremony. There is a murder in the Enchanted Village right before Darcy's bridal shower and Nick, Darcy, and Glinda are on the case. I was sad to finish this series, but I loved the ...more
Besides the fact that the author repeats the main Mc's stomach feels bad/is churning/is queasy on every other page because we can guess after the second time that (view spoiler) it was a good book. It feels a bit rushed at the end and the bad guy is only half baked and in need of some clarification as to her personality and behaviors, especially at the end of the book. A nice finish to the series. ...more

I wasn't crazy about the last book in this series but I decided to give it another try.

It was okay. The first half was very boring. I realize there has to be some introduction but it wasn't holding my interest at all. The last quarter was better and wrapped up nicely.

With two books in a row I'm not crazy about I don't think I will continue to read this series.

A Witch to Remember by Heather Blake is a bittersweet ending to fantastic series that I wish could continue.
Will Darcy have her happily ever after?
Darcy Merriweather and the gang are back in the final Wishcraft Mystery book. It is a bittersweet ending to leave these fantastic characters behind. I consider them my friends that I help find clues and figure out whatever Darcy is investigating. Darcy and Nick's wedding is getting nearer, but they also have a lot of other things on their plates.

I love this series. I primarily have paranormal and mystery books on Mt Git'r'Read and the WWBL and this is a combo of the two. Some series get stale the farther in the books go in number. This is book 9 and I honestly think it could go on for quite some time, fresh and fun, but it has the feel of end of series to me. If so, it's ending on a high note as all series should.

Darcy Merriweather is concealing so many secrets, from so many people, that it’s no wonder she has a constant headache these days. And she has a lot on her mind. Her wedding is coming up very soon. A mysterious stranger gives her a very mysterious gift. The Elder Renewal is coming up, and there’s a battle going on to try to keep it from happening, which could destroy Darcy’s entire world. And, of course, someone gets murdered! Darcy, as the sole Craft Investigator, has an incredible amoun

This ninth episode of life in an "Enchanted Village" in Massachusetts has been long awaited by myself and other fans of the 'A Wishcraft Mystery' series. There are so many reasons why this series became a favorite of mine, but, the main one is the excellent character casting done by Ms. Blake.

The main characters are two sisters, Darcy and Harper. Their Aunt, Ve begins the circle of relatives and friends, and yes, familiars that surround the girls. The girls have a legacy that they are able to ex

Darci Merriweather and the inhabitants of The Enchanted Village come together one final time as Darcy and Nick head to the alter. Though when the ladies host a bridal luncheon for Darcy, things go up in flames as the tea house is burned to the ground and one of the owners is found dead in the ashes. Things look like Dorothy is responsible as it has her signature all over it, but Darcy isn’t so sure. Even though Dorothy wants to take Darcy and her family down, Darcy just can’t let an innocent per ...more

If I were to write a full review, it would be dripping with spoilers.

As the always great Dr. River Song (portrayed brilliantly by THE Ms. Alex Kingston) said when both appeared on "Doctor Who," "No spoilers!"

"A Witch to Remember," by Heather Blake (also known as Heather Webber), is the final installment in the "Wishcraft Mysteries," and it was a lovely conclusion to a most-beloved Cozy Mystery series.

In order of publication, they are:

Oh, my heart.

I was both eager to read and dreading this book because it's the last in the series. I really wanted to see what happens and to get back to the Enchanted Village with Darcy, Harper, Nick, Starla, and the rest of the group, but at the same time I didn't want it to end.

This final book has Darcy investigating the murder of the co-owner of a tea room while also getting ready for her wedding. It was as engaging as ever, with the focus being on Darcy, Dorothy, and Darcy's mom, the Elder.

This 9th installment of Heather Blake’s Wishcraft Mysteries is a fitting and lovely way to end the series. Darcy & Nick finally tie the knot, Harper’s future becomes more clear, and the fate of the Elder and the Coven is decided. Of course there’s a mystery or two to settle along the way, and it’s a pretty interesting one at that. There are a few character surprises as well. My only issue with this book (besides the fact that it’s the last one), is that it meanders a bit too much. Many if not mo ...more

It’s finally wedding bells for Darcy and Nick, though without trouble nearby what else would the Enchanted Village focus on? A tea house catches on fire moments before Darcy and her pregnant sister Harper enter for a bridal luncheon. The owners body is found inside. History of a lover’s quarrel, drunken lies, and suspicious non-wishcrafters all tie into the wedding drama.

This is the Blake’s last book of her wishcraft series and I’m so bummed!! My favorite series I have read in a while. So fun an
