I know it feels cliche to say "If you liked Harry Potter as a kid, try this book with adult wizards!" know. That. I think the fact that it takes place at a wizarding school makes it even harder not to link the two.

But the story is not about the teens, but about two adults, sisters - one magical, one not. But when a murder happens at the school and the "magical police" deem it an accidental death, the school reaches out to a private detective, who happens to be the non-magical sister, to investigate further because they suspect foul play.

Good mystery and quick read.
