What a magical read! This is the first book I have read by this author and I look forward to reading the next book in this cozy series. “It Takes A Witch” was a great read.

Darcy & Harper Merriweather move into the Enchanted Village to live with their aunt Ve after their father passes away. They soon discover that they are witches also known as “Crafters”. Their mother who passed away years prior was one as well and their father was a mortal. They have the ability to grant people wishes with certain conditions of course. Harper gets a job working at the village’s bookstore, while Darcy works at their Aunt Ve’s business called “As You Wish”. As Darcy tries to get adjusted to her new surroundings, the Enchanted Village is hit with a devastating crime…. a murder. Here is where the mystery begins. Many questions begin to arise from this murder, the most obvious being who is the killer? Why did they kill? As you read along and learn about the characters that live in the Enchanted Village, many people are possible suspects. Darcy begins to do her own little investigation to get to the bottom of it. She does have a love interest in the book, but I liked that it wasn’t the main focus of the book. Their relationship/ friendship (if it can be called that ) kind of took a back seat in the plot of the book, which I liked because it’s a great lead-way to books to follow in the series.

I enjoyed the characters in this book my favorite being Darcy. I found her to be a very likeable main character. I also loved the cute addition of Missy the dog to the book vs. just a cat. Most books on witches or about have cats in them. I also loved the way the author describes the Enchanted Village throughout the book. I also found the names of the businesses to be very cute. I am looking forward to seeing how the characters develop in the 2nd book. I hope Darcy plays a role on future books in the series and I want to find out what becomes of her and Nick. I truly recommend this book to readers who like cute, cozy mysteries!
