Wishcrafter Darcy Merriweather can charm desires into reality, but as the national bestselling Wishcraft mysteries continue, she won’t be able to magically avoid trouble when death holds an open house…. The Enchanted Village is abuzz when the old Tavistock house finally goes up for sale. Darcy’s friend Curecrafter Cherise Goodwin is hoping she will have the winning bid on the home, but Darcy can’t shake the feeling that something bad is about to happen—and her magical instincts are usually right. Sure enough, while Darcy and Cherise are looking at the property, they discover real estate agent Raina Gallagher stone-cold dead on the floor. Clutched in her hand is a gemstone amulet and, on the wall above her, a large red A. While Raina had no shortage of enemies, there’s also a dark legend about the house itself. To track down the killer, Darcy must unlock the secrets of both the deceased and the estate—and she’ll need to act fast, because revenge is a deal that never closes.…

First Thought when Finished: Some like it Witchy by Heather Blake was my favorite one in the series so far!
Quick Thoughts: I was wrong about who did it! DANG IT! Though to be honest that is how I like my mysteries– a little twisty. I love the Wishcraft series and this was the strongest one of the bunch. Of course, all the crazy antics of Darcy (or more the people surrounding her) is what makes these golden. They are zany, twisty, and this one in particular went on a wild ride. I thought I had it figured out but then bam another curve. If you like cozies then I would totally recommend this as one to pick up!
Narrated By Coleen Marlo / Length: 7 hrs and 58 mins
Coleen is one of my favorite narrators. She just nails characters that have that extra bit of oomph to their personality. She has excellent pacing and emotional range too. I would totally recommend this on audio!
