One of the reasons witch Fortuna Delphi moved to the small town of Mystic End was to see if she could find out anything about her origins there, as she had been abandoned as a baby and adopted by someone from California. She hasnt made much progress yet. But two bachelors are showing an interest in her, Martin and Gabe. Now she is trying to fit in with the town. She is pleased when millionaires Hubert and Della Maddox commission her to create an angel statue for their patio. In fact, it was the ...more

Excellent Second Installment

I haven't read this author before I checked out the first book of this series, which I found absolutely delightful. I love quirky paranormal mysteries, and that first book showed me clearly that this author had that down pat. I hoped for a repeat with this book. I was not disappointed. The characters come alive; our main character, Fortuna, seems so real; her character just jumps off the page. Shes a great viewpoint character. I love the humor that is woven in. It's

This is the second book in this series, and it certainly keeps up the momentum built up in the first book. I really like that the characters are starting to develop and become more defined as we learn more about them.
In this story Fortuna finds herself suspected of killing a businessman because of an issue with a sculpture she has created. This leads to her investigating the man's death, and a very twisty tale ensues. Tied in with this is Fortuna being torn in her affections between two men, but

Delphi is making an angel at a request for a client. Everything is done and she is happy with the end result. Delphi is still wondering about her past but has made no moves to finding out. She has even tried to find out what being the mystic of the town means for her. She is keeping Martin at arms length, he keeps coming around. She put Gabe into the friend zone as well.
The party has finally gotten there, she is surprised what happened to her angel. When the person touches it, he drops dead.

ANGEL IN DEMISE is another exciting and fun read from Leanne Leeds and book two in Fortuna Delphi's new life. The character and world building makes you feel right at home with these people.

The town of Mystic End is filled with secrets and corruption along with some good law abiding citizens. It just hard sometimes to know whose who. This time the town has turned against Fortuna thinking she has killed one of their leading citizens. It seems up to Fortuna and her friend Pepper to find out who

The silver angel gets your heart pumping

Awesome. A great read about a murder of a wealthy businessman who has had a rather chequered and vast love life even though he has been married for years.
The commission of the angel was going to be tight time wise but she'd make it work. However the party where it was unveiled was an entirely different matter. Not only was the angel now silver but it also electrocuted the man next to him. Now she is a prime suspect! A rival for her hand (that keeps feeding

The Mystic in Mystics End is faced with a series of challenges

Members of the strange church in that town seem to be big on hypocrisy and bigotry, and not so big on monogamy. Reverend Kane seems an excellent source of gossip and a poor source for pastoral guidance

Fortuna gets a few glimpses into her family tree, and a lot of blame and accusations thrown her way.

Another handful of lethal efforts see the police chiefs daughter doing her best to throw mud and danger her way - and a lot of

How do you blamed for something that you could not have done? No one has respect for anyone's work. Do you know how much effort goes into creating art? Ooops, sorry soapbox.

Anyway, her work gets altered after leaving her shop. It leads to a death. She gets blamed. Goes on from there.

ROXY STILL OWES GIDEON AN APOLOGY!!!!!!!!

Pepper? Gabe? hmmmm

Is Spike growing up?

What is the mystery with Martin? Does he know? I think he does.

I just wish Miss Bessie would tell her now. if she can slap her out of

Fortuna is a suspect in a murder. A man is mysteriously electrocuted and Fortunas angel statue is to blame. But the silver conductive paint on it was put on after she delivered the statute.

And Martin Salvi is really coming on strong, trying to get her to go on a date. As she spends more time with him he is growing on her. But ...more

you can never go wrong with a Leanne Leeds book. I am enjoying getting to know Fortuna and though we still don't know what being the "Mystic" means we are getting to know the characters, just as she is getting to know the players.
An unusual order for a plaster of Paris Angel, leads to a party which leads to a death and as the artist, all eyes are on Fortuna and not all favourably!

A great read and a great way to lose a couple of hours. Leanne Leeds writes a great whodunnit!

Electrifying Cozy Mystery with Psychic Undertones
This is the second book in a series that is a spin-off of the author's Magical Midway series. Te book would be ok alone, but the reader would enjoy it more having read book 1. The cozy mystery is pretty neat with a puzzling murder and interesting clues. Our heroine's love life and knowledge about her own heritage become more confusing. This is a fun group of books that I have enjoyed reading. I received this ARC book for free from Booksprouts and

Mystic Ends is just getting used to Fortuna and her shop is doing well, when she is ordered to make an angel statue to commemorate the father of one of the leading citizens. During the unveiling of the statue the host is killed - seemingly of an electric shock.
Fortuna, protected by one of her would be suitors and unwillingly prosecuted by the other has a hard time to find out what really happened.
Despite the topic fun and entertaining. A wonderful read for a day off.

That is until the angel statue she was commissioned to make delivers a fatal electric shock.

Fortuna Has Been Set Up

Someone used her sculpture to kill. She's got to solve the mystery or go down for a crime she did not commit. This mystery was very interesting. Guessing who did it was not too hard. It was figuring out how they did it that was fascinating. And it is getting easier to pick between the two suitors. Suave and sophisticated vs constantly angry and demanding. Hmmmm

Mystic's End is not a very friendly town.
Moving to a new town can be stressful for sure, but moving to a new town that is full of corruption is something altogether different. Then to be accused of murder...well, that just puts things at a whole other level. Now it's time to prove it was all a set-up. Add to the mix 2 males on a testosterone binge and you have a runaway train to deal with. Great read!

Angel in Demise is the second book in the Mystic's End Mysteries. I am loving this series and this book.

With the combination of wacky characters, the mystery of Fortuna's background, and the serious matter of murder, this story is well written, enjoyable and engaging. This is wonderful for an afternoon of reading and relaxation.

Can't wait for the next one in the series!
I read and reviewed this book with no obligation.

Fortuna creates an angel statue for Hugh Maddoxs celebration. However, the evening turns horribly wrong and accusations point straight at Fortuna. Suspects and motives kept me guessing, and twists for Fortunas personal life were very interesting. I am hooked for more.

Lovely cozy mystery

I really enjoyed reading this book, Fortuna is framed for murder then served papers to leave her home and shop. The town is full of nasty secrets and she's still no nearer to finding out who she is. I can't wait to read the next book.
