Book Review: Whiskey Witches (1)

Detective Paige Whiskey comes from a long line of witches. They may not all be the most powerful, but they are outspoken and supportive of their community. She alone has no gifts. She can’t summon fire, can’t read minds. She knows the arcane. She’s studied it. That, along with her connection to the Whiskey Witches, lands her some pretty strange cases.

Like the sacrificial murders of St. Francisville, Louisiana. There’s a killer on the loose, choosing people in a vain attempt to raise a demon. Once she gets there, she realizes the murders were nothing more than an elaborate invitation, tempting her into the claws of the killer.

She does have a gift, a very powerful and terrifying one.

The killer is after her.

It's not often that I read a book and I spend the entire time wondering what it is about it that's keeping me reading. Usually I know right away if I'm enjoying a book or if I'm just not. In fact, the only other time I remember having this feeling is with the first Snookie Snackcake book. I was left with such mixed feelings that I never went back to the series. This one could be similar for me. As I was reading it, I kept thinking that I really liked the premise. In fact, I was enjoying the book. Then, I'd notice an editing error and I'd have to walk away for a bit. Yes, they make me twitchy. I can't help it. It's my job to notice these things. Then, I'd want to know what was happening so I'd come back. Final opinion? It's a good book and other than one part that I just didn't get, I think it's a story that a lot of you will enjoy.

Edit: It's been brought to my attention that the copy that I received wasn't the final edited version! Whew! Knowing that, I can happily say go for it on this book! The story is interesting and if you enjoy paranormal fiction, this could be an excellent series for you.


I received a copy of this book for the purpose of this review. No spells were cast on me so all thoughts, opinions and typos are my own.
