The Delight

A fire witch and a fire chief?  Why not, right?  I already enjoy this series immensely, but the fun rolls on with each new installment of this paranormal romance cozy mystery series.

Review

Some Like It Witchy is the third book in the Main Street Witches series which is a spin off to the original Banshee Creek series.  It could be enjoyed out of order, but the world and already established relationships tie together from book to book not to mention the running series plot building up in the background.

Fiona is fairly new to the Banshee Creek community and she loves it all including her candlemaking business.  She has hung up her witch hat for good after her unstable fire magic caused some mishaps.  Better to tamp it down and do something creative with her favorite element.  All is well until a visiting witch coven who wants to conduct their Beltane ritual out in Banshee Creek’s park has a death at their ceremony and Fiona’s products are implicated in the investigation.  The handsome and curmudgeonly fire chief chooses to help conduct the investigation regarding Fiona’s fire starters himself.

Gavin has been a minor character throughout both series and he is the longsuffering fire and rescue chief who puts up with and handles the oddest emergencies because its Banshee Creek and weird is the new normal.  I was tickled to see the gruff no-nonsense man get his own romance and team up with Fiona to solve the murder

It wasn’t a difficult mystery, really, but it was a fun one to follow.  I confess to being more into Fiana’s friendship with Kat and Luanne (characters from earlier books) and her feisty romance with Gavin along with the antics of her Korean dog-raccoon spirit haunting her place.

All in all, it was another fun one in the series with a blend of light and dark with the humor opposed to the murder.  I look forward to what comes next and can heartily recommend this paranormal cozy mystery series.

About Ani Gonzalez

Hi! I write about smart, funny people making out (and finding corpses) in haunted houses. I like ghost stories, chocolate, and sangría.

The following two tabs change content below.
I was born and raised near Sacramento, CA. I have read since I was four years old and developed tastes that run the gamut of literature. I went away to college and have a degree in education, a certificate in family history research, and a certificate in social work. I worked for a non-profit agency with low income families for 20 years which included being responsible for the children’s library and promoting/teaching adult literacy. I have lived in Southeast Michigan for the last 18 years and I am currently a book addicted homemaker with a cat and husband who keep me grounded. Recently, I made it a challenge to review each book that I have read as a favor to author friends who said reviews are important. I have done reviews for Good Reads, Amazon, eBay, and Smashwords, but mostly at Goodreads and Amazon.

Sometimes it is nice to have a fun read without all the guessing. This sounds like a fun book. I will have to add it to my list.

Gavin is just the type of character I love. And how fun having a candlemaker. Don’t see that too often!

Yes, he was really a sweetie under all those frowns. He just wanted everyone safe. It was fun that Fiona was a fire witch, but afraid of her magic so she channeled that into a creative enterprise.
