FIRST IN THE NATIONAL BESTSELLING WISHCRAFT MYSTERY SERIES!

Darcy Merriweather and her sister, Harper, hail from a long line of witches who have the power to grant wishes using spells. They’ve come to Enchanted Village in Salem, Massachusetts, to join the family business, but soon find themselves knee-deep in murder…
 
Until three weeks ago, Darcy and her sister, Harper, were working dead-end jobs and trying to put their troubles behind them. Then their Aunt Velma delivered a bombshell: they’re actually Wishcrafters—witches with the power to grant wishes with a mere spell. Wanting a fresh start, they head to their aunt’s magic-themed tourist town to master their newfound skills.
 
But their magic fails them when a wanna-be witch turns up dead—strangled with Aunt Ve’s scarf—and Ve’s sweetheart, Sylar, is found looming over the body. Ve is standing by her man, but Darcy overheard Sylar wish that the victim would disappear—forever. With Harper distracted by her handsome new crush, Darcy is determined to sleuth her way to the truth. But it’ll take more than a wish to unravel this mystery...

Very good light reading. Mystery, magic, romance and a good twist who could ask for more

Fun book, like the series. Wishcrafting is something I've never heard of before... and it's nice to find something "new" in the cozy mystery/paranormal romance mystery genre.

Darcy Merriweather is a strong character and her sister Harper is a good foil. Will put the next in the series on hold right away.

Delightful, it is wonderful to suspend reality and just enjoy. I can't wait to read the next two books.

It is definitely a cozy mystery with a touch of a romantic side. But it was fun to read and a bit complex as the author introduced a number of characters. It is about two sisters who come back to their roots, Salem, MA, where a number of "crafters," life in plain sight. Crafters is their word for witches. The main character, her sister, and aunt can make wishes come true--with a number of strings attached.

The first in the series. Set in "Enchanted Village" in Salem, MA. Not too "woo woo" on the witchcraft stuff - actually done well. Well plotted! Good series beginning - would read more installments.
