 Reviewed by: Tina

 If you are a fan of A Wishcraft Mysteries by Heather Blake and you are so patiently waiting to find out who the elder is all will be revealed in Gone with the witch and as I was I don't think you will be disappointed. Or if you are like me a new fan to the the series only reading one previous book you are in for an enchanting, heartfelt read with unforgettable characters, with twists and turns, sabotage, secrets and a murder.

 As you can guess Darci Merriweather is a witch who lives in Salem, Massachusetts, with her Aunt Ve and many other crafter aka witch friends. Darcy is the proprietor of “As you Wish” a personal concierge service that is becoming known for private investigating. The cool thing is is that Darcy has the ability to grant wishes but she and along with her sister Harper who has yet to accept her fate as a witch have to live among the mortals in secret not revealing they are witches or their abilities. Ivy Teasdale is organizing the “Pawsitively Enchanting Pet Extravaganza, it is a annual event and competition featuring animals in the village from all walks of life, cats, dogs, guinea pigs, even a Nigerian dwarf goat named, Cookie.



 Ivy asks Darcy to watch over the event and keep her eye on Natasha and her cat Titania who has continuously won the competition by not so fair means. Ivy thinks that Natasha is up to no good by sabotaging previous competitors in past years and she she does not want the same to happen this year. Natasha suddenly collapses at Darcy's feet and is pronounced dead by poisoning.

 While Darcy is the search for the elders identity she knows her aunt is keeping secrets from her. With another poisoning and animal competitors being “petnapped” Ivy once again asks Darcy to help find Natasha's killer but it proves difficult as they are mortals and it's against witch laws. Jealousy, cheating and revenge, talking animals made this such a delightful and suspense filled page turner.

 I love Pepe and Mrs. P somehow reminded me of the talking mice in Cinderella and that is one of my favorite movies as a child. Archie, the bird and Cookie the goat had me in stitches with their antics. If you are looking for an escape to an enchanted village with good witches and some evil characters read Gone with the Witch and feel the magic.
