Murder by Death

I read cozy and historical mysteries, a bit of Paranormal/UF, and to mix it up, I read science and gardening books on occasion.

Obsidian Curse (Stacy Justice Mysteries, #5)

Obsidian Curse - Barbra Annino

Cute.  Not cutesy, but cute.  I'd call it a light, fast read for Halloween, but even though it takes place in the days before Samhain there isn't anything Halloween-y about it.  At least no beyond the witches and Fae that are part of all the books in the series.

 

Likeable characters, small-town setting.  The MC went from being an everyday, relatable female to some kick ass warrior witch and that feels a bit silly.  I was rolling my eyes every time her "Seeker" lair was described; it was over-the-top.

 

I wasn't disappointed at the end; ultimately, the book met my expectations and didn't disappoint any of them.  It was a fast, light, mildly entertaining read that held my attention.
