 GIVEAWAY ENDED
IT TAKES A WITCH
A Wishcraft Mystery
BY HEATHER BLAKE

ABOUT THE BOOK:
Darcy Merriweather has just discovered she hails from a long line of Wishcrafters-witches with the power to cast spells by making a wish. She's come to Enchanted Village to learn her trade but finds herself in the middle of a murder investigation... 

PRAISE FOR IT TAKES A WITCH:
"A bewitching tale that will quickly cast a spell on you."
-Lori's Reading Corner

"Magic and murder . . . what could be better?
Throw in Heather Blake's sparkling dialogue, colorful characters and clever plot and you've got It Takes a Witch, exactly the book you've been wishing for!"
-Casey Daniels, author of "Wild, Wild Death"

"If you've been looking for a terrific new mystery series, your wish has been granted. Blending magic, romance and mystery, Blake has created a charming story." 
-Denise Swanson, New York Times bestselling author

"Blake successfully blends crime, magic, romance, and self-discovery in her lively debut..."
-Publisher's Weekly 


"28 THINGS YOU MAY NOT KNOW ABOUT ME" BY AUTHOR HEATHER BLAKE:

1) I am completely, hopelessly addicted to Dr Pepper.
2) Three of my favorite shows as a child were Bewitched, I Dream of Jeannie, and Quincy, M.D. (Is it any wonder I write what I do?)
3) I can eat a whole sleeve of Girl Scout Thin Mints without thinking twice. They’re there, and then they’re (poof!) gone.   
4) I change my mind a lot.   
5) I love animals and include them in all my books. (Except animal # 22)
To read the rest of these 28 things about Heather, including #22, visit her website HERE to find them.....

and I will add another one right now in case you are looking for Heather and come upon Heather Webber. You are not lost, they are one and the same. Note from Heather's blog profile, "I'm an author with a split personality, writing as Heather Webber & Heather Blake. Wife. Mom of three: an Army private (son #1), a college freshman (son #2), and a high school junior (Baby Girl)...." and there is more to find out, so check out Heather's blog as well and see how many books the "two Heathers" have written!

AN EXCERPT FROM IT TAKES A WITCH:
Chapter One

Usually I’m not in the habit of tiptoeing through strange houses under the cover of darkness.

It was unsettling to say the least, and I felt completely out of sorts. My outfit only added to my discomfort. The flouncy, frilly pink satin bodysuit, tulle tutu, and pink ballet slippers were a far cry from my usual jeans and tee.

It didn’t help that my every move was being watched closely.

As I crept up aged wooden stairs of a large house along the coast of Salem, Massachusetts, Amanda Goodwin followed behind me with her mother-in-law, Cherise, bringing up the rear. They’d ushered me straight upstairs as soon as I’d arrived, their eyes lit like they were two little girls sneaking a peek at Santa. At the top of the steps, a long hallway branched into four bedrooms, one of which had its door closed. Pink and black polka-dotted block letters attached to the wood paneling declared it as my destination: Laurel Grace Goodwin’s bedroom.

“Have you done this before, Ms. Merriweather?” Amanda asked softly, tugging on my gossamer wings. ....
If you would like to read the rest of this excerpt, you can by visiting Heather Blake's website HERE.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR:
Heather Blake grew up in a suburb of Boston, and enjoys going “home” in her novels. As a young mother, she tried her hand at writing novels and hasn’t looked back. Currently, Heather lives in the Cincinnati area with her family, and is currently hard at work on her next novel.

I think this book should be a fun read since the witch is just learning her trade.

Carol N Wong said...

From her website, I read the first page of this book and I saw that the story is set in Salem, Massachuetts. I visited Salem once and didn't want to leave. It is so full of history and it also has a very strange feeling of oldness and mystery about it.
