Teaser Tuesday 121: No Rest For the Wiccan

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading. Anyone can play along! Just do the following:

* Grab your current book or recent read.
* Share a few “teaser” sentences from somewhere in the book.
* BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS! (Make sure that what you share doesn’t give too much away. You don’t want to ruin the book for others!)
* Share the title and author so that other participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teaser!

I caught up on Madelyn Alt's "Bewitching Mystery" series over the weekend, reading books 4-6 of the 8-book series (don't have book 7 yet, and 8 is out in HC in May—which means I won't be getting that for another year, when the PB version is out). This week's teaser comes from book 4, No Rest for the Wiccan, and is between the book’s heroine, Maggie, and her younger sister Melanie. Ah, sisters...ya gotta love 'em (or not).

"Hm. You have just become almost interesting, Maggie. Congratulations." She smirked. "Bet you Mom doesn't know."

(pg 65)

This is the fourth book in a series of eight.

It’s a long, hot summer in Stony Mill, and Maggie is busy watching TV reruns, minding the store, and figuring out her love life. Then, she reluctantly volunteers to care for her bedridden, oh-so-perfect sister, Mel. But Mel isn’t the only focus of Maggie’s attention. There are some strange spirits hanging about the area—and it looks like a job for Maggie and the N.I.G.H.T.S. ghost-hunting team.

Even as she tries to deal with the long dead, Maggie must also cope with the recently deceased. When a friend of Mel’s loses her husband to a dreadful fall, the police call it an accidental death. Maggie’s not so sure, and sets her second sights on finding a first-degree murderer...

This sounds interesting. I've never read this series.
BTW - I read my first Pepper Martin story. I liked it :)

Good teaser! Haven't heard of this series before, but it definitely sounds like one I should check out.

Alice Audrey said...

Sounds like there are as many problems with the mother as with the sister.

Beth@Weavings said...

Sounds like sisters! My teaser comes from Bath Tangle by Georgette Heyer.

Heather said...

Joy: Happy to have interested you in a new series!

Alice: Oh, trust me--the mother has even more issues than the sister, LOL.

Beth: Yes, definitely the behavior of a younger sister! :-\
