Penzi's a new witch in a new town. Her long-lost mother's been locked up for murder.
What should she do? Find the real killer – however dangerous that may be.
So far, Penzi's done well. Despite her reading disability, she's qualified as a lawyer in London and raised her two brothers on her own. But she doesn't have the skills to hunt down a murderer.
True Penzi's a white witch, so she could use magic, and she does have her mother's Book of Spells, but she's hit a stumbling block. Try as she may, Penzi cannot decipher the grimoire's medieval script. She needs help desperately if she's to save her mother from a life in prison.
Will the High Council of the Guild of White Witches listen to her plea and allow her an assistant in time to free her mother? An assistant with supernatural powers of their own?
If you love stories about witches, magic, and talking cats and dogs, all spiced up with a dollop of danger, you'll love following along with Mpenzi and Felix, her shape-shifting sidekick, as they fight the good fight against evil in the small French seaside town of Beaucoup-sur-Mer.
Nice story but that’s not how mitochondria or genetics works (magic inheritance aside, the DNA info is just off) Otherwise entertaining
Witch who can’t read
A very enjoyable book. The people (and witches) are so much fun. All of the problems of normal people plus a few extras thrown in. Three siblings left on their own by both parents.
The story is engaging, the characters fully formed, and the situations are believable. Their solutions are magical.
Amazing book 5 stars
