Hello to all,

However that's where the magic of books appears...they are able to transport in magical universe, give us comfort and courage or simply to make us laugh...possibilies are as endless as books are numerous and diverse.

This week i've read one novelty that i particularly enjoyed and a book from an author i'm fond of. So today program is Spies and Spells from Tonya Kappes , first in the series of the same thing is sure far when i need to smile or laugh Tonya never disappointed me.

Short description from goodreads :

 While Maggie waits for her Witchy Hour, she works at the family diner with her mom, aunt Meme and Lilith, her sister - all witches. Soon Maggie gets entangled with a mysterious handsome stranger, Mick Jasper, and his secret U.S. organization, SKUL. Has she found her calling?

My opinion:
          Another series by Tonya Kappes and a cozy paranormal mystery? Of course i had to try it and i'm so happy i did!

Maggie is a witch and a  strong spirited one, acting like a child at time ( really playing with magic for a dare?!) she still can be responsible as well...when she wants to but she has a tendency to call trouble. Her familiar is Vinnie, a car. First time i read about a non animal familiar and i loved him protective, jealous he can be so funny and territorial ( who though a car could be^^).

In this universe, witches can hide in the normal world but can't reveal what they are which is understandable. However they each have a role or a job perfectly fit for them and they discover what it is when they live their Witchy Hour. No one knows when or how it happen it simply happen  differently for each witch. Maggie longs to discover her destiny, she is bored helping at the family diner how she likes it but she wants to know what she is means to be....and for someone so impatient she doesn't understand it when it hit her. One day, meeting someone she starts feeling needles everywhere and her magic becomes wonky...because Mick Jasper an investigator for a secret organization is part of her destiny...and none to happy to have met this strange girl with even stranger car that keeps getting in the way of his investigation.

But fate knows what he is doing and soon Maggie is recruited to go undercover as his partner....even if it's supposed to be temporary, even if it's more appearances than reality Maggie discover she loves doing that and will do her best to solve her case without revealing any family secret.

It was really funny, the investigation was interesting despite the fact i guessed the culprit way too soon but it didn't matter with the characters it was fun to follow false leads , watch their attraction grow and their bickering incessant as Maggie refuse to reveal how she knows what she knows and Mick wants to discover what she is and what 's wrong with her car.

If you are looking for a paranormal cosy mystery with magic this is definitively one you have to try 

Score:  4/5
