The Delight

I think it is safe to say that an addiction has formed.  First it was the Banshee Creek series and now I am well into the spin-off Main Street Witches series.  Except, the Witches bring a delicious cozy mystery with their romances which makes them double the pleasure.


Fortune Favors the Witch is the second of the Main Street Witches series and follows along as Luanne, the new Banshee Creek fortune teller attempts to start over.  The town is welcoming of both her and her gift.  Then, a flyer for a Ponzi scheme is uncovered and her past makes the new town sheriff, Sean Stickley start to interest himself in her future.
Sean left the NYPD after a rough case left him near death and on too many criminals’ most wanted lists so a change of pace in a Virginia small mountain town where weird paranormal sightings are the worst he’s got on the agenda.  Then a man is found shot near an old bridge known for suicides and a beautiful fortune teller may be his biggest asset in getting to the bottom of a scam and a murder.

I enjoy each story in both of these series.  Whether it is the main characters and their romance, the latest paranormal, or in this case, alien plot interest, or just the Banshee Creek world and its quirky characters, I just fly through the stories.  Luanne and Sean’s story is no exception.  These are generally light and have a great deal of humor infused in them particularly with the PROVe paranormal group’s antics, but there is a darker layer beneath where the magic that manifests strongest in the Banshee Creek area brings not just the good and fun, but evil to manifest and cause trouble.  The town and the town ghosts work together to banish the bad while at the same time have a bit of fun and romatnic spice.

I am not generally one for binge reads, but I find myself already eyeballing the next Main Street Witch story like a Dove Dark Chocolate bar.  Those who enjoy paranormal romantic comedy and don’t mind it mashed up with a cozy mystery should definitely give Banshee Creek and then Main Street Witches a try.

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.
