Publisher's Summary

Unlucky-in-love artist Annabelle Britton decides that a visit to the seaside town of Portsmouth, New Hampshire, is the perfect way to get over her problems. But when she stumbles upon a smoky gray cat named Alastair, and follows him into a charming cottage, Annabelle finds herself in a whole spellbook full of trouble. Suddenly saddled with a witch's wand and a furry familiar, Annabelle soon meets a friendly group of women who use their spells, charms, and potions to keep the people of Portsmouth safe. But despite their gifts, the witches can't prevent every wicked deed in town.
Soon, the mystery surrounding Alistair's former owner, who died under unusual circumstances, grows when another local turns up dead. Armed with magic, friends, and the charmed cat who adopted her more than the other way around, Annabelle sets out to paw through the evidence and uncover a killer.

Great first in a new series

Delia James has written a great first in her new series. She has crafted believable characters, with a brand new idea. Elise Arsenault gave a great performance bringing all the characters to life. I can't wait for the next installment. I highly recommend this book.

Pretty Good

This an enjoyable cozy mystery with well developed characters and plot. Delia James created a believable world with realistic situations. The only thing I didn't like was that the story was drawn out and too long. Other than that I enjoyed the story and recommend it to others.
