Dead Again by Susan Lynn Solomon
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
***** 5 Cranky Stars *****
Emlyn is a 40ish successfully published author, divorcee, VERY attracted to her neighbor police detective Robert,( whose estranged wife has decided that she wants to try again) and her possibly psychotic, hefty, arrogant cat Elvira is her constant companion.
Just by the way, Emlyn is a novice witch, descended from a long line of witches.
Emlyn's mother comes to stay in order to attend her 42nd high school reunion and she is hell bent on Emlyn being her plus one, much to Emlyn's chagrin her best friend Rebecca Nurse, the local herbalist/tarot card expert STRONGLY encourages her to accompany her mother because the card predicted trouble at the reunion.
An entertaining tale unfolds as a 42 year old cold case of a murder again becomes relevant, another 3 murders of women who were all part of the same high school clique, an ancient time travel spell is attempted, romances flourish and the cat is EVER present with her own opinion.
I enjoyed this tale tremendously, especially the thread of dry humor that threads its way through the story, and I would love to read more by this author.
I award 5 stars to this delightful story
