Charm McCall can solve a small-town murder, but can she figure out how to stop a man-stealing interloper?

A movie production company has come to town…and so has an old family friend of the town’s sexy new Mountie, Ace Collins. His “old pal” turns out to be a scheming long-legged blonde who throws Charm right off her game. Even Auntie T.J. playing the bagpipes down Main Street to drive the trespasser away doesn’t work.

Between catering for the world’s hungriest film crew, trying to solve the murder of the unit accountant who hired her and dealing with her new magical gifts, Charm’s a tad busy. But too bad, because she’s soon facing off against a bigger threat when more people become ill with suspected poisoning—and her own sister’s in the crosshairs. Charm’s left wondering if even Agatha Christie could have seen this one coming.

But with so much working against them—including the whole town being dead set against them consummating their relationship—do Charm and Ace stand a chance?

Charm, a witch, and a triplet, is back, in her cozy little town and faced with a murder again. A movie is being filmed here, and her sister is staring in it. Familiar characters from book one are here, but if readers hadn’t seen that book, it’s okay. This second in a series is a standalone.

Charm is a good name for the protagonist, as it suits her well. Her love interest is a strong character who adds conflict in his own way. The supporting characters are drawn well enough to add to the plot, and there are plenty of twists and turns to make this an engaging story.

It’s not a high-tension tale, but the little details keep a reader immersed in this world. As we learn more about the crime, we also discover more about Charm. These details add depth to her.

Another antagonist—not the murderer—adds another touch of tension and interest to the story. What will happen with this one, who happens to want what Charm has? The secondary plot is not really connected to the primary plot, but it paints details and adds to the understanding of characters.

This is a cute little story and a great continuation of Charm’s escapades. Readers of cozy mysteries who like unconventional characters could really enjoy this one. If there is a third in this series, I would definitely like to read it.
