The Trouble with Magic by Madelyn Alt

Book Details
The Trouble with Magic by Madelyn Alt
Paperback, 261 pages
2006, Berkley Prime Crime
ISBN: 0-425-20746-3
Series: Book 1 in the Bewitching Mystery series

A Bewitching mystery--first in the new paranormal chick-lit mystery series.

Antiques-shop clerk Maggie O'Neill was a little weirded out when she discovered her new boss Felicity was a witch. But when Felicity becomes the suspect in a local murder, Maggie must enlist Felicity's wiccan friends for help--and discover her own spellbinding talent.

I loved the mystery and the magic aspects of this book. Overall, it was a good, quick read. I will be reading more of the series. Having said that, one problem, for me at least, was that being it was the first in a series, it gave a lot of background information. Normally, that would be fine but in this case it was background information on witchcraft. Most people interested in a book of this kind would probably know this information already and it kind of slowed down the pace of the book. Another problem, this time completely personal, was that the book has ghosts/spirits. I'm not a huge fan of haunting stories.
