Thank you to NetGalley and Kensington Books for an opportunity to read Bait And Witch
This is a cute cozy mystery, where our heroine Josie, in hiding from after witnessing a corrupt deal, finds herself in a small town library, with a new cat ..ooh and she slowly discover she’s a witch 🧙🏻♀️
I loved the magical aspects of this book - the books talking to Josie, and her slowly realizing her powers. The town itself and its townsfolk were also fun to read about.
Oregon setting, Victorian house library (and home above the library), small town, incredibly smart cat and a witch just learning of her powers! Powers that are connected to BOOKS!!!
The characters are fantastic! Love the quirky small town vibes (and characters) and the backstory for her arrival in the small town.
The mystery I think was better than usual for cozies because there were more elements and the murder was just small part of many pieces.
Loved, loved, ...more

Angela M. Sanders
Angela M. Sanders’ debut to her new cozy mystery series is just purrfect, complete with Josie our novice witch, a black cat and of course a fantastic rustic old library filled to the gills with dusty books that speak to said novice witch. With a fast-paced flowing narrative and an intriguing multi-threaded plot Angela weaves her tale about murder and mayhem interspersed with big city corruption and small town politics. Josie, the acc ...more

This is the first book in the Witch Way Librarian mystery series by Angela M. Sanders.
I thought this was a great book. Right up my alley with the whole “coming into your witchy powers” storyline running alongside the murder mystery. Josie is a librarian working in Washington DC at the Library of Congress where she overhears a conversation that she reports to the authorities. Suddenly, she finds herself in hot water and high tales it out of town accepting a job at a small town library wi ...more
