Seven-Year Witch: 02/08/23
Seven-Year Witch by Angela M. Sanders (2021) is the second book in the Witch Way Librarian mystery series. Sam has returned to run for sheriff but he's brought along his wife and their infant son. Josie who has feelings for Sam has to keep them to herself while he and his wife finalize their divorce.
The mystery at hand involves a couple murders involved with a curse plot of land at the old mill. Rumor has it, the land is cursed. Josie with her recently reawakened magic uses this time to learn about curses with the help of letters left to her by her grandmother.
I happened to read this mystery during the winter deluge of January 2023. With rain, landslides, levee breaks, and flooding already on my mind, the fictional rainstorm that provides a backdrop to Seven-Year Witch made for an extra dramatic reading. Sanders captures the way a flood can go from a mild annoyance to deadly in a matter of minutes perfectly.
The third book is Witch and Famous (2022).
