Teaser Tuesday~The Seventh Witch by Shirley Damsgaard


Teaser Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by Miz B of Should Be Reading and asks you to:

1. Grab your current read
2. Open to a random page
3 . Share 2 "teaser"sentences also citing the title of the book and the author and in that way people can have great recommendations if they like the "teaser.
4. Please avoid spoilers!

Here's my teaser from The Seventh Witch by Shirley Damsgaard:

"First you find Oscar Nelson dead ----"
"Abby" I interrupted her with a nudge. "It's not the first time I've found a body; I seem to have a talent for it."

This was an entertaining read set in NC as Abby and her granddaughter Ophelia, both witches, travel from Iowa to celebrate the 100th birthday of Great Aunt Mary. Not all is celebration as Abby runs into Sharon, the granddaughter of her old nemesis. It seems Sharon is a self proclaimed witch and is carrying the old feud to new levels. Will Ophelia be able to save her grandmother from the evil? With the help of other family witches, it turns into quite a show down.

Reasonably predictable but still an enjoyable book. I've read a few others in the series and liked them. Using my "put down, pick up" rating system this one gets a solid 3***

Disclosure:
A copy of this book for review was borrowed from the county library system. Thanks to my tax dollars.
