"A suspenseful but humorous witch story"
Cassandra Hathorne is an author of 'KITCHEN WITCH'
syndicated news column and Books and M. S. Kazimer is a
mystery/horror writer who sits next to her during a book
signing tour as seating is alphabetical. Although he looks
good for a guy of 40, he is also mortal and she is a witch
who at 90 is barely middle aged. Unknown to her, Mick has
been a fan of her writing and is looking forward to meeting
The FBI discovers there is a serial killer copycatting
Kazimer's book plots who is now stalking the tour. They
plan a trap which backfires and will lead to both authors'
deaths without the aid of magic and love.
SOME PRACTICAL MAGIC is a suspenseful but humorous witch
story with 'shades' of the BEWITCHED TV sitcom to add to
reading pleasure. The look at the serial killer is vivid
but not overwhelming which I appreciated as this is a
romance rather than horror. The secondary 'witchy'
characters add spice and humor to lighten the serious side
of the story. Medusa, Cassie's match-making mother 'pops
in' occasionally with friends and advice. Endora, the cat
familiar is never short on advice and also works as
Cassie's publicist on the tour.
Besides looking out for a serial killer, the main
characters are looking within at relationships and what
they will do with their life after the tour. Although
expressed typically, the serious aspects are not
overwhelmed by the humor. I would recommend this book to
anyone wishing a satisfying romantic adventure.
