Publisher's Summary

After discovering her mystical heritage - and being adopted by furry feline familiar Alistair - artist Annabelle Britton has decided to make picturesque Portsmouth, New Hampshire, her new home.

But then a series of spooky sounds and strange happenings convince the owners that their new shop is haunted. They want Anna and her coven to evict the restless spirit before the grand opening.

Fun story with weak plot points and great cat

I'm going for the third book in the series, because I enjoy the characters, especially the cat. The narrator has a great voice - even for the cat. I also enjoy the protagonist's honest and often funny self-commentary. The weak points are: too much what-iffing scenarios, mostly unreasonable; an obvious, overlooked clue; and the glossing over of a key point, which allows for a scary, action-packed ending. The strong points are: character development, lots of interesting angles, almost constant action - and a strong cat character. What can I say? I love cats and aside from the mountain lion that shares Jane Yellowrock's body, this is the best cat character that I've found!

Great Story!

I loved this book. I listened to the first in the series and had to get this one. Alistair the cat is awesome and hilarious with his "human like" ways and his funny disappearing acts. I also loved Annabelle's Grandmother! She was a real hoot! Can't wait to get the rest of this series.
