Third in the "Circle" books featuring Cassandra Shipton, an herbalist and creator of herbal potions and notions. I almost hesitate to call these mysteries, in much the way the No. 1 Ladies Detective Agency books aren't true mysteries. They're more stories with a mystery element to them. These stories feature five women with very different personalities and lives who are best friends and Wiccan coven members. When I need a dose of good-feeling and hominess, this series does the trick for me. The author is able to evoke sights, smells, and sounds that put you right in the moment, and most of her moments are pleasant and cozy and idyllic. I would probably eventually gag left to read only this type of book, but I do love this series for the warm fuzzy feeling as much as for the accurate portrayal of Pagan belief and practice--or at least, a plausible portrayal, given that there are no hard and fast rules and Pagan worship and lifestyle can be quite varied. Anyway, this was a lovely way to open October and I heartily enjoyed it!

Who says you have to act your age? Certainly not the women of "the circle"-five kindred souls whose steadfast friendship is as entertaining as it is fulfilling, five women who are shaking things up in the idyllic. New England town of Plymouth, Massachusetts. There's outspoken, outrageous Cass, whose new love life is thriving right along with her berbal products business; lovable Heather, who never met a no-kill animal sanctuary she didn't want to champion with her sizable bank account; Phillipa, a poet with a wicked smile and a wit to match; Deidre, and energetic mom who has also happens to make anatomically correct dolls; and Fiona, a former flower child-turned-local-librarian. When these five get together, anything can happen-and it usually does. For these bright, warm, advenurous women also seem to be a magnet for the strange, wild, and dangerous. And where they go, mischief is sure to follow....
