This is a really good series! In this one, Ophelia must try to solve a murder that occurred 5 years before, without much input from her grandmother, Abby. Ophelia's best friend Brian was killed in Iowa City and to move forward, she confronts former Detective Henry Comacho and finds there is much more to this man than she thought. And, of course, she helps solve Brian's murder.

This is the second in a great semi-cozy series about a very reluctant witch. Ophelia and her Grandmother, Abby are Witches by inheritance - the family "gift" Ophelia never asked for nor wanted.
But despite all her naysaying, bodies keep turning up around Ophelia often enough to call unwanted attention to herself.
Five years ago her best friend, Brian, was murdered and butchered and now the killer is reaching out for Ophelia - and Abby knows that her Granddaughter will have to do most of the investigations without her help. Henry Camacho is still sniffing around because he has no belief in co-incidence - he knows Ophelia has something up her sleeve and he won't rest until the truth is revealed. The author has a really good way with words and her series seems to be building well and believably.(Is that a word?) I find her repeating characters to be believable - they don't feel like just two-dimensional cut outs. I really recommend this book and the first one in the series: "Witch Way To Murder".

Entertaining. Grammar is a problem. I find the protagonist's whining annoying, and her ignorance of real witchcraft amusing, but the plot is okay and it's a quick read.

Ophelia is becoming more comfotable with her powers and a good mistery to boot. A little predictable but an interesting read.

Ophelia is a thirty something, single librarian who shuns her psychic abilities and denies her grandmother Abby's benevolent witchcraft. Having "seen" her best friend's death, but unable to warn him that his death was imminent and save him, she escapes the trauma and moves to her grandmother's small town. In spite of her denying her and her grandmother's uncanny abilities, Ophelia is drawn into mysterious events and deaths in her new hometown. A pleasant series.

If you've read the first book, this is a must read. It ties up Ophelia's best friends murder and endears the characters to the reader. I'm hooked on these mysteries now even though I'm not a big "cozy" fan.

Really good sequel. Brought some of the past events in so if you had not read the first story could still follow but loved the development of the characters

Great Book, even though I knew who the Killer was as soon as they were introduced. That did not really detract from the story. I love the characters, and plan to read the rest of the series.

A second of the Abby and Ophelia mysteries. Abby is a witch and so is Ophelia, but she wishes she wasn't.

1st in the Ophelia and Abby mystery series

Ophelia wishes she was just your typical, thirty-something librarian. Unfortunately, she's been burdened with psychic powers --- an unwanted "gift" she considers inconvenient at best and at worst downright dangerous. Her kindly old grandmother, Abby, however, has no compunctions about the paranormal, being a practicing witch with unique abilities of her own.

Ophelia Jensen's good witch granny Abigail revels in her paranormal powers. But Ophelia never asked for her bothersome psychic abilities--especially since the proved worthless when the thirty-something librarian's best friend Brian was murdered by a still-unknown assailant. Now, five years later, another friend is gone, killed in almost identical fashion. Even dear old Abby isn't safe distracted as she is by her fight to prevent a massive, mega-polluting pig-farming operation from invading their small Iowa town. And Ophelia can't count on her snarling scoffing nemesis, police detective Henry Comacho, to get the job done, so she'll have to take matters into her own hands. Because a common thread to the crimes-- and a possible next victim--is suddenly becoming troublingly apparent... and it's Ophelia Jensen herself!
