" A dream is a wish your heart makes..." A quote from song from the movie, Cinderella but it's a quote I thought of when reading Some like it Witchy. Both the song and this book leave you with a magical and mystical feeling. Wishcrafter Darcy's heart in this story has wishes of her own but will fate help her realize her own wishes instead of being busy granting everyone else's wishes at her aunt Ve's business  "As you Wish" but aunt Ve is busy running for village councilwoman. Again this was a book I went into with mixed feelings because I don't usually read books with magic or mystical elements but I was mesmerized and spellbound by the story and the characters.

The Enchanted Village's oldest home The Tavistock house goes on the market for sale. Darcy secretly wishes the house was hers despite the fact that it's falling apart. Darcy's companion and curecrafter, Cherise has put in a bid on the home hoping to win it. Cherise is dying to own the home and while checking out the house Darcy and Cherise come across the body of Raina Gallagher, the real estate agent for the home. A discovery made while Darcy stepped into her blood. In Raina's clutches is a fertility amulet. With powers of blessing it's holder with children. On the wall above Raina is a large red a written with Raina's hand in her own blood.

The Enchanted Village is full of crafters with many many secrets and even the Tavistock home has a few secrets of it's own locked within its walls (secret diamonds supposely hidden within its walls). Darcy Gets roped into by the powerful Elder of the village to investigate  the murder, a task that Darcy knows all too well and does not mind taking on along with her boyfriend, Nick, the police chief. This is a situation that Darcy cannot wish her way out of she is determined to find a killer that has a death wish.

A mystical cast of characters that I know will have me reading previous books in this series. This was my first venture into The Enchanted Village that I never wanted to leave. At first it was difficult for me to understand what a Elder was and what the crafters could do with their powers but all was revealed as I read on and it became clear to me. Some like it Witchy made me wish I could hold these powers and be able to  make wishes and grant them too to deserving people. I hope in future book or previous books to discover more about Terry, being a Elvis fan I'm very much fascinated with him.  This book is filled with witty charm, entertainment and mystique and humor and is a delight to this reader.
