Editorial ReviewPretty Witches All in a Row delivers a compelling crime procedural that kept me guessing the whole way through. Throw in a supernatural twist with magic and a coven of witches, and we're in for quite a ride. Author Lisa Olsen balances the thrills and chills of paranormal mystery with a generous helping of humor, quick banter and well developed characters. Sergeant Nick Gibson is our sympathetic hero; his playful wit and down to earth relationship with his teenage daughter made me root for him from the first chapter. Annaliese, the pretty witch helping with the investigation, is an enigma; you want to trust her, but there are enough questions that you resist letting your guard down, and you end up hoping Nick isn't a fool for placing his faith in her. I hope we'll see this cast of characters again; it'd be a crime not to see where they go next.Product DescriptionSomeone is picking off a coven of witches one by one. Can Sgt. Nick Gibson and his team of detectives catch the killer before he loses the pretty witch who's got him under her spell?Nick must cast aside his disbelief and delve into the world of the supernatural to solve the case. On hand to help is Annaliese, a member of the coven who claims to have had a prophetic dream at the exact time of each victim's death, offering clues to the identity of the killer. Can he accept the 'proof' offered by unconventional means or is she deliberately leading him astray to hide her own secrets? To cloud the issue, a local evangelist is telling anyone who asks that the victims had it coming. Is religious mania the motive for murder, or is it something more personal?

Bullet Review:DNF at 11%/Chapter 3.This book actually has quite a bit going for it: it's an investigation into a paranormal death, told from a male POV. It's also set in the Portland Metro area, which makes me squee.But that is where my compliments begin and end. While it's not actually bad per se, ...
Started off pretty good, ended up being just ok. In my opinion, it just got far too unbelievable as the story progressed. The fact that Nick was far too quickly and easily able to get past his disbelief, and that along with the fact that he pretty much trampled all over what I would consider to be n...
2.5 stars.This started off pretty good. An intriguing murder mystery involving a coven of modern day witches and the detectives investigating the case.
