Description

One Friday night in the city of Melbourne, aspiring concert pianist Ella Wentworth mesmerizes an audience of eight hundred people. Yet she's distraught; she missed a note, and her perfectionism consumes her. Moments later, her hair turns arctic white, and her world descends into Disneyesque hallucinations, where everyday objects appear to sparkle, levitate, and...flash mob.

Ella is referred to Dr Kendra Hamilton, who specialises in treatment for "post-traumatic stress in cases of trauma-induced spontaneous hair depigmentation." But Dr Kendra's tennis player grip and capacity to draw bolts of energy from the sky lead Ella to believe there's more to this psychiatrist's credentials than MD. What does this mental health professional mean by "you're a witch?"

Unfortunately, everyone but Ella is frothing about her rare magic skills, and soon she becomes the target of nefarious beings. And all this magical hoo-ha unfolds behind the backs of her husband and daughter. Max is Ella's sweetheart whom she would never (normally) lie to. But any day now, she'll confess she's a witch. Right? Right?

The Magic Investigations Society Archive is an adventurous, comical, paranormal cozy mystery series.

Loved this story!

The Case of the Endangered Witch was easy to read and kept me guessing until the very end. Overall, it's about Ella and what happens when she obsesses over missing one little note in her performance. The concert pianist's hair turns white and everything changes.

Great read!

H.B. Chapman has penned a fabulous paranormal mystery in The Case of the Endangered Witch, the first in the Magic Investigations Society series. The story opens with Ella Wentworth performing as a piano soloist for the local orchestra but by the end of that night her world has taken a dramatic turn when her hair becomes completely white. As the story unfolds, she is informed that she is a part witch whose has just come into her powers.

Throughout the story, the author sets the scene and creates characters in such a way that the reader can easily visualize what is taking place at any given time. The number of red herrings, misdirects and plot twists as well as the utilization of mystical creatures and realms kept me reading until the very end. I hope that the author can continue to develop these characters in future installments and keep Ella moving forward while keeping a foot in both worlds.

I received a copy of this book from NetGalley and the author in exchange for a fair and honest review.
