Our protagonist, Margaret Mary-Catherine O'Neill, lives in Stony Mill, Indiana, smack dab in the bible belt of the north. When she's fired from her dreaded job, she quickly accepts a position at Enchantments Antiques and Fine Gifts and, for the first time she can remember, this small town Hoosier girl is happy. Well, except for the little matter of her new boss, Felicity Dow - a self proclaimed witch - being accused of her estranged sister's murder; the fact that Maggie's younger sister and mother seem just as disappointed in her as ever; and that she keeps hearing (dare I say ghostly?) voices. Whatever is this good - okay, that's stretching it a bit - whatever is this Catholic girl to do?
This book has the feel of Charlaine Harris and Mary Janice Davidson - what I like to call "brain candy". It's light, doesn't take itself too seriously, but tells a highly entertaining story at the same time. And it has hunky men!
But it's also a little bit more. There is definite mystery behind all the goings on. The characters are distinct, the descriptions are incredible. The whole world is rich and satisfying.
I hope that this book is just the first in a long line of books. Now to wait until December when the next one comes out!
