Who else got excited when they saw another part being released in the Retired Witches Mystery series? All of us right? Joyce and Jim Lavene hit it out of the park again with the second part, Looking for Mr. Good Witch.
From the back of the book:
A sea witch has been leaving bodies in her wake up and down the Carolina coast, baffling authorities who are finding drowning victims with no water in their lungs. The fin-icky female will continue to kill young male witches until she finds her perfect man—the one who survives her mating ritual—so she can live for another hundred years. And now coven hopeful Brian Fuller is about to be ensnared in her net.
Retired witches Molly and Elsie, along with the ghost of Olivia and her daughter Dorothy, need all the help they can get to stop the sea witch. Aided by a selkie and a crème puff–craving mermaid, they’re determined to keep Brian out of her murky clutches. But are they all about to get in over their heads?
Look out male witches!! There is a sea witch making short work of all the males who are not up to her ritual. This is such a unique story, and series as a whole. The world building continues in this part as we get to learn more about the characters and their personal and magical struggles.
Joyce and Jim seem to somehow get better with every book I read. This one was just so magical on all levels. It has parts that are funny, parts that sweet and parts that are intense, all woven seamlessly together. While I was totally engrossed and deeply satisfied, I was also left craving more. I just cannot wait to read the next part.
You do not need to read the first part to start this one but really you should and while you are shopping make sure you look for more titles from Joyce and Jim Lavene; they have never disappointed me!
