Catching a killer is tricky business for the owner of an Upstate New York magick shop in this mystery series debut by the author of This Magick Marmot.
The tiny town of New Camel, New York, has become a tourist favorite thanks to an old magick shop called Abracadabra. It's been in the Wilde family for generations. And now, suddenly, twenty-something Kailyn Wilde is about to inherit the family business—as well as its magickal secrets. But the surprises keep coming when Kailyn goes to finalize the estate at the local attorney's office—and stumbles over the body of her best friend Elise's husband.
As a brash detective casts the blame on Elise, Kailyn summons her deepest powers to find answers and start an investigation of her own. What with running a business, perfecting ancient spells, and keeping up with an uninvited guest of fabled origins, Kailyn has her hands full. But with the help of her uncanny black cat Sashkatu and her muumuu-clad Aunt Tilly, she's out to catch a killer before someone makes her disappear.
