The second installment of the Sonoma witch series is here and just as enjoyable to read. We get to see Alma developing into a bit less of a loner as she expands her circle of people. There is a mystery here to be solved and it is not immediately obvious who is behind what is going on. But it is written in a way that kept me enthralled and reading til I found the answer. I love the characters that are developing. I enjoyed seeing Alma grow. And can't wait to see what comes next because there are still mysteries afloat. Thank you to the author and publisher for an advanced copy in exchange for honest review.
Alma is requested by the Protectorate to attend a house party and report back. Her curiosity gets the better of her, as well as sort of being blackmailed into going, so off she goes to San Francisco. The party is a week-long affair, with a random bunch of witches, each with their own secrets. After one person winds up dead, the house party turns into a murder investigation. Alma, although not actually an Protectorate agent, decides to look into the murder. Her curious nature takes over, once again. This was a great read. Lots of twists and turns, and it's hard to know who the culprit is! Everyone is hiding something, Alma included. I thoroughly enjoyed this story.

Just like the previous book, this one left me speechless. It also successfully kept me second guessing myself all the way to the end. I am not ashamed to admit that I didn’t see any of that coming. I loved watching the partnership between Alma and Birdie deepen. It was especially fun to watch Alma playing the role of “wise old witch” while training her friend. I’m fascinated by the all the new things we’re learning about Alma’s abilities as well as those of the people and beings around her. I’m already looking forward to seeing what mischief Alma’s going to get into next. I received a complimentary advanced copy of this book from the author.
