I was glad to read another in the Witch Squad Cozy Mystery series. This time there is a murder on campus and it is the lunch lady Denise. The squad all likes Denise and are upset by her murder. They are determined to find out who did this to Denise, and set about investigating almost as soon as the police were done questioning them! To add to solving a murder, the girls must also deal with a new witch in school, Tori, who behaves horribly towards the Witch Squad and even tries to steal Houston from Mercy. She picks a fight with Alba, causes Mercy to fall on her face in high heels, and does other things that make her very unpopular.
As frequently happens, the Witch Squad gets caught being off campus by Sorceress Stone. The encourage Jax to lie to her mother and disobey her as well. Meanwhile Sweets has started her internship at the Bakery, and is given the delightful job of making the wedding cake. Although her co-worker apparently hates her and does everything he can to discourage her, Sweets finds a way to prevail.
There are lots of ups and downs as the squad tries to solve the murder, keep off of Sorceress Stone's radar, help Denise's children, and prepare for Char and Mr. Bailey's wedding. So much to go wrong! And so many ways to prove their abilities! It is a book that will keep you engaged and reading quickly to find out how everything works out.
This is a series that needs to be read in order, otherwise the reader will be quite muddled!
