Bewitched meets Murder She Wrote in this delightful new cozy mystery series featuring Ophelia Jensen, small town librarian and reluctant psychic, and her grandmother Abby, a benevolent witch. Thirty something Ophelia Jensen wants to live a quiet life as a small town librarian. She's created a comfortable existence with her kooky, colorful grandmother Abby, and if it were up to her, they could live out their days—along with Ophelia's dog Lady and cat Queenie—in peace and quiet. But, to Ophelia's dismay, she and Abby aren't a typical grandmother/granddaughter duo. She possesses psychic powers, and Abby is a kindly witch. And while Ophelia would do anything to dismiss her gift—harboring terrible guilt after her best friend was killed and she was unable to stop it—threatening events keep popping up, forcing her to tap into her powers of intuition. To make matters worse, a strange—yet devastatingly attractive—man is hanging around Ophelia's library, and no matter how many times she tells him she's sworn off men forever, he persists. Soon this handsome newcomer reveals he's following a lead on a local drug ring, and then a dead body shows up right in Abby's backyard. And much as Ophelia would like to put away her spells forever, she and Abby must use their special powers to keep themselves, and others, out of harm's way.

This isn't bad, it just isn't good. And it is impossible to take about way without some spoilers. The main character, Ophelia, is pretty good, though her reaction about not being touched because her best friend was murdered and she couldn't save him, seems a bit much considering that they were fr...
I would have been more into this if Ophelia hadn't been in such need of an attitude adjustment. She was so closed minded about just anything and everything. Granted Rick was being a persistent pain in the rear with all the questions and just not taking no for an answer. Even I was starting to side w...
Ophelia is a librarian. She lives in the small town her grandmother Abby lives in. Ophelia has the hereditary gifts of her family, some psychic powers. She avoids touching people because she can find things out about them and she's uncomfortable with all that. Her grandmother is happy with her s...
pretty good book I a looking forward to read the next installment.
There's really not much of a point in her being a witch. It comes into play a little bit, but it seems irrelevant for most of the book.The books not well written, but I'll read the other ones anyway. I was hoping for it to be a decent mystery book, but it's not. I'd have been happier if she ignored ...
