Return to Book Page. Maggie O'Neill was just a small-town girl, stuck in a dead-end job--until she started working at Enchantments, Stony Mill's finest mystical antique shop. Now Maggie is Indiana's newest witch. Learning to cope with her newfound powers is tough enough, but add to that keeping the stock at Enchantments organized and remembering to tape reruns of her favorite show, Magnum, P.
But when she witnesses an altercation between a local teenage princess, and another customer in Enchantments--and later the girl turns up dead--she feels compelled to investigate. Though the police are at a loss, Maggie has some tricks up her sleeve, or to be more specific, some spells, charms, and mystical intuitions. And with the help of her boss and favorite witch Felicity Dow, Maggie is spellbound and determined to get to the bottom of this murder.

Basic Plot: Maggie continues to learn about her empathy, continues to stumble through amateur sleuthing, and continues to not have a boyfriend. If I hadn't already picked up the next book in the series from the library, I'd most likely stop reading these books here and now, and never think twice about it.
Let's start with the characters, shall we? Marcus: wears leather pants, has beautiful lon Basic Plot: Maggie continues to learn about her empathy, continues to stumble through amateur sleuthing, and continues to not have a boyfriend. Marcus: wears leather pants, has beautiful long black hair, rides a Harley, plays in a band, former military intelligence but a very rebellious, anti-authority guy-WTF???
He also seems interested in our lead character, though he never makes a move. Maggie: Our main character. That's about all we have. Tom: I have no idea why Maggie's attracted to this bigoted asshole. Though he has a right to be pissed at her, as she constantly butts into his investigations, where she really has NO business. Liss: stereotypical old-world pagan, wise-woman mother-figure.
Of course she's Scottish. I could go on about the overbearing mother, perfect sister, and sweet best friend, but it's all too much stereotyped stock character blather to go into without sounding plain old mean. The first book had some issues that were forgivable to me partially because it was respectful of paganism and because it was a "first in series" book. I'm generally willing to forgive a lot in a "first" book if I see potential for the series.
This book made my suspension of disbelief HURT. A LOT. She told a completely unconnected-to-the-mystery character WHAT? This book wasn't even pages, and it took me way longer to finish than it ought to have because i had to keep walking away from it before I did the unthinkable and hurt the book. So why am I continuing on and why does the book get 2 stars instead of only 1? Well, the respect for paganism is still there which carries a lot of weight in my book , the ending was decent, and the author surprised me a bit with the mystery.
I thought I had the whole thing figured out pretty early in the book and I was actually wrong probably clung to my "superior" opinion too long out of pride.
I'll give the author some grudging kudos for not going exactly where I was expecting with the mystery. I can see where some people would like these books a lot more than I do. For someone just looking for a light read, these could be literary popcorn. I think my standards are just a bit higher than Alt is delivering, though.
If the next book makes me want to hurl it across the room, I'm stopping the series there and I will NOT look back. Screw with my suspension of disbelief at your peril, authors! View 2 comments. The fun subgenre of paranormal, cozy mysteries double-sub really usually dishes out cute situations, humorous pitfalls and of course a dash of magically-inclined charm.
She works at a shop, Enchanted, under her employer, pro-witch type. The start is semi-sluggish but needed to establish scene of crime.aracjengooti.gq

The middle grows more interesting once some personal drama squirts some needed life into it. What really irked me was that the ending half got much better, only to have the last chapter or so result to stupidity. Suddenly the heroine, a woman with her hand on her shoulders, starts acting stupid for the sake of the story. The whole trip for evidence was just hokey and unnecessary. The phone and picture convenient setup? Why steal a frame, who not just take a picture of it?
Why wait almost the entire book for high res shots and then want them sent to your cellphone? And even if the person is recognized in the shot, how do you automatically know they are the killer because of that? The heroine is likeable enough, although a bit too goody sometimes. Tom as her romantic interest is dull, have no idea why she cares. Instead of loving Felicity as a super sweet, supportive boss, she irritated me with her clicheness and wise woman persona.
There is a clear cookie cutter formula used for characterization. Madeline Alt does write well. She keeps to the point, avoids over-elaborating, keeps pacing consistent, but needs to improve on unrealistic, staged dialogue, especially in the last quarter between her and her boss and best friend upstairs.
Romance is pretty much not there but there are some hints to come. I may like the next book if I get my hands on it. The writer does her job well but there are some rough edges needing polishing. May 27, Maureen rated it really liked it. First I've read in this series The second book in the Bewitching Mystery series. It's about 2 months after the first book took place and the town of Stony Mill is still unsettled after the murder of one of it's residence.
Sadly more mayhem is in store for the town in the shape of a young Lolita who meets an untimely end. Maggie, who seems to be channeling her favorite TV hunk Magnum P. I knew who did it immediatly The second book in the Bewitching Mystery series. I knew who did it immediatly upon that person's introduction.
That is the only way I can say that without giving it away - trust me - I rewrote the sentence several times to make sure! And yet I couldn't stop reading this book even after I knew I was right about who done it. Seriously - I came home tonight and had no intention of finishing the book - my knitting is practically screaming my name to get my attention - but no.
I had to finish the book.

I liked that the second book was a little darker and delt with a 17 year old power hungry conniving little wench. I know I went to school with girls like that - I imagine a lot people did. I also liked that Maggie seemed to grow up a little bit in this book. I still wish she would tell her mom to piss off - but at least she knows her mom has her twisted in knots - so there is a little hope that one day she will tell her mom where to go and how to get there develope a healthier relationship with the matriarch of the family.
I am looking forward to the next book to see if some of the left unresolved stuff gets addressed. Jan 11, Jolene Green rated it it was ok. I really wanted to like this book. I admit to being one of those people who do occasionially pick a book by the cover. I expected this book to have some magic and comedy based on the cover and the review statements. The problem is that the magic and humor in this story are like the dash of salt you toss into cookie dough. You hardly notice it's there. The main character, Maggie, is likable and has good potential but she is boring.
Maggie also got to do her first ghost N.
S investigation. A Charmed Death by Madelyn Alt is a really good book. But then again that is the whole point of these books I think. To get the reader guessing while trying to figure it out as you read along with it. I am going to give this book a five since it was really good and I loved it. Happy Reading!
