I'll give the author this, these books have been steady and on a similar writing level. That's a good thing, I've often found cozy series tend to fluctuate from book to book, at least for me. However, that also means this series is going to be merely okay; I'm glad I read it but I won't be re-reading it for a while.
Katie is struggling with her new knowledge of being a light witch and seems to be spending all her free time at Georgia Wild, a non-profit local environmental group. However, arriving one night, her ability as a catalyst once again comes into play as she finds the head, Autumn Boles, dead.
I'll admit, I got really worried here when Steve started showing up so much and when other things happened.(show spoiler)
But, Ms. Cates does a good job and managed, barely, to keep me from declaring a return of the triangle. I did find this a tad predictable, so apparently did Detective Quinn as he made little protest about Katie's involvement. I also knew who the murderer was basically when we met them.
Bringing Mary Jane, Katie's' mother, here - finally - was great though. Things were said, on both sides, that needed to be and her mother proves to be a great deal of help with everything.
All in all, another decent addition to the series and I'm interested to see what comes next. I'm also excited to "finish" a series, at least for now.
