I enjoy the Lucy Stone series, and I thought this book was a fun read, but the ending left me guffawing a little. Only because I found it hard to believe that Lucy would find herself in the situation that led to the story's climax, without apparently having any clue what was going on. As in, "La la la, oops, forgot to fill my gas tank, oh hey, look where I am! Look who's here! Look what they have handy! Nothing suspicious there!" Also, there were several questions that, to me, were not answered - obviously not the big question of whodunnit, but smaller ones, like: Why were those dudes chasing her in the woods? Who painted the pentagrams? What was the deal with the bear? Lastly, was I the only person who thought Lucy was maybe being a tad TOO open-minded in dealing with the Wicca folks, especially given the fact that an unsolved murder had been committed in their town? As a Mom, I don't think I'd open my home to a virtual stranger and let her hang out with my kids while I wasn't there, especially given the fact that said stranger was a potential suspect in the murder. Just sayin'.
