Sometimes it takes a magic touch to solve a murder.
Twenty-six-year-old witch Alma may be a failed demon hunter, but she’s never lacked magical ability—just an Incurable Inability to kill. Recovering from defending her small town from a recent supernatural attack, Alma has sworn off working for the Protectorate, the witch governing body, to devote herself to learning and teaching the old ways of magic—without hurting anyone.
But soon she’s drawn out of her cozy house in the redwoods to investigate a high-society witch at a week-long house party on the remote coast north of San Francisco. When the party turns deadly, she’s forced to summon old powers and new, make allies she might not be able to trust, and face a shocking truth about her own identity. And maybe—if she can survive long enough—unmask a killer.

House Parties Are Not Safe.
I found Hex at a House Party fun and engaging. This is the second book in the series and I'm continuing to really enjoy Alma and her friends and enemies.
The mystery was interesting and the villain not immediately obvious. (I hate when there is only one person who could possibly be the killer.) The secondary characters were strongly written and believable.
While Alma is extremely likable, she is a bit of a mystery herself. I'm a big fan of character development and well thought out long story arcs so I'm totally fine with learning little bits about Alma from book to book.
I am looking forward to the next book in the series.
I recommend this book to anyone who is a fan of supernatural/urban fantasy mixed with a little mystery.
I received an ARC in exchange of my honest review.
