Rowl! The soft, pink paw tapped my nose a couple of times before the old cat gave me the ole one-two punch.

What I thought of this book

Oh my goodness did I have so much fun reading this first installment of Spies and Spells! It’s a cross between the TV shows Scarecrow and Mrs. King and Knight Rider which were two of my favorite shows! I have actually watched Scarecrow and Mrs. King so much that I knew the two episodes that she sort of took things from to create her witchy version and it cracked me up!

Maggie is working for her Aunt while waiting for her witchy hour, which is when she finds her life journey. She just didn’t know that a little dare from her sister sort of helps that happen along with putting her in some dangerous situations.

She also never thought when she met Mick that she would end up working for him and SKUL, which is Secret Keepers of the Universal Law. She can’t believe she is working for a spy, but he knows some things that could get her family in trouble if he digs further, so she agrees to help. She doesn’t think this is her life’s journey but she thinks it might lead to that and she just needs to get him off her back.

she is supposed to become a makeup consultant  and get some info on the place because they think it has links to drugs. Things get even worse when the owner of the makeup empire is killed. She thinks they are both connected somehow but all Mick is interested in is finding the drugs.

I love Maggie, she is a lot of fun! Her familiar is a car named Vinnie which is where the Knight Rider stuff comes in because he talks to her, drives her around and helps her when she is in trouble. He can be a bit jealous at times, especially of Mick. I love Vinnie! I also like Mick, he seems like he is going to be a fun character. There is also a lot of other great characters, her mom, her aunt, her sister, etc.

I had a blast reading this one and have even started on the second one and can’t wait to see what kind of trouble Maggie and Mick get into next! 🙂

If you love cozy mysteries with a paranormal twist then you really need to try this series!!

      I haven’t read to many of her books but I have liked what I have read. 🙂 Since this is a newer series I am trying to catch up since only two are out and one on preorder. 🙂

      Yeah, I thought it was cool too! Scarecrow and Mrs. King was my favorite show growing up…lol.

    Ha this looks fun. A family of witches and a group called SKUL? What’s not to like lol? I’d like to read more cozies with a paranormal twist, since most don’t seem to have them (at least in my limited experience- maybe I’m reading the wrong ones), but anyway this sounds good!

      It was a lot of fun! There are actually a lot of series out there with paranormal elements. 🙂 Heather Blake and Juliet Blackwell are two popular ones…oh and Rose Pressy. Of course, Tonya Kappes has several series that are all paranormal. 🙂

      ha ha, I got you, but I know you would pay me back for being an enabler cause we just seem to take turns…lol
