Witch Way to Murder by Shirley Damsgaard

Review by Dawn Dowdle

Ophelia Jensen feels guilty because she couldn't save her friend a few years ago.  Ophelia has psychic powers, but she tries to ignore them.  She just wants to do her job as librarian and nothing more. 

When a good-looking stranger comes to town claiming to be a chemical salesman, Ophelia tries to ignore him.  He keeps coming around asking about thefts of fertilizer that have plagued the town.  When he tries to go meet her grandmother Abby, Ophelia steps in to stop him.  Abby is a witch, and the last thing she wants is that news broadcast.  Who is this stranger and what does he want?   

When a body is dumped in Abby's backyard, Ophelia and Abby decide they'd better figure out what is going on before someone else is harmed.  Can they discover who murdered this man and why without putting themselves or others in harm's way? 

I was very skeptical when I started reading this book as I had recently read another cozy about a witch that I didn't like.  I loved this one.  I can't wait to read the next book.  Ophelia and Abby are such likeable characters.  The witchcraft is truly kept to a minimum and is not the main focus of the story.  The small town location is wonderful as well.  I highly recommend this book.
