Review: The Witch and the Dead by Heather Blake

The Witch and the Dead by Heather Blake (Wishcraft Mystery series #7)

Book description from GoodReads:

The national bestselling author of Gone with the Witch returns as wish-granting witch Darcy Merriweather uncovers dangerous skeletons in the closet—and the garage…
When Darcy moved to Salem, Massachusetts, she never expected her life to change as drastically as it did. But within a short time, the Enchanted Village has become her home, its mystical residents have become her family, and As You Wish, the personal concierge business formerly run by her Aunt Ve, has become her calling. Still, the time has come for change—and for Darcy to move out of Aunt Ve’s house.

Darcy’s belongings are stashed in Aunt Ve’s garage, alongside a mess of memories, forgotten possessions, and, to both Ve and Darcy’s horror, a pile of old bones. It turns out they belong to Ve’s long-missing second husband. Now Darcy must unpack old secrets to solve a cold case—and make sure her aunt isn’t looking at a spell behind bars.

My review – 5/5 Stars (originally posted on GoodReads on 12/13/16) 

All the components of the story in this book just really came together for me. I loved the mystery surrounding the story behind the bones found at Ve’s house. Not just finding out how they got there, but hearing the story about who they belonged to and how that person’s life had been entwined with so many of the villagers. Many events came up in the book that had me pointing the finger at the wrong person. I thoroughly enjoyed this one!

I absolutely can’t wait for the next book in this series. This book set up some interesting possible future storylines.
