Publisher Description

From USA Today bestselling authors Sally J. Smith & Jean Steffens comes murder, magic, and laughter on the bayou...

There’s magic in the air at The Mansion at Mystic Isle where Melanie Hamilton works—magic everywhere. The Federation of Magicians has contracted to hold their annual show at the resort on the bayou, and Melanie's excited to join in the fun—nothing like a little hocus pocus to liven things up, right? The winner’s own show and a huge cash prize guarantees stiff competition. And speaking of stiffs, when the contest frontrunner turns up dead, Mel, Jack Stockton, and the staff at the resort rally to chase down the culprit. Is one magician so desperate for fame and fortune they’d kill for it, or is there another reason to work some black magic? Mel conjures up several suspects, but the adept sleight of hand conceals the identity of the murderer. Will an abracadabra and the wave of a magic wand catch the killer, or will it be Mel who disappears?

A fun read

There's a magic show at The Mansion at Mystic Isle, with magicians competing to win cash and be made famous. But when one magician is found dead and another is implicated in the crime, Mel puts her amateur sleuthing skills to the test, to find out what really happened.

This book was a fun one to read. There's a lot of characters, all a bit quirky, and the story really keeps you guessing as to who the culprit is.
