Witch Trial by Cate Conte
Series: A Full Moon Mystery #2
Genres: Cozy Mystery
Double, double toil and trouble,
A witch's life is quite a muddle.
The Full Moon crystal shop in North Harbor, Connecticut, offers healing stones for all sorts of ailments. Unfortunately, there's nothing among the gems that can help owner Violet Mooney learn how to wield the magick she inherited from both sides of her family--the legendary Ravenstar and Moonstone clans. As if being an apprentice witch weren't difficult enough, Violet's tutors are her estranged mother Fiona, a sister she never knew she had named Zoe, and a familiar in the form of a black cat, Xander.
Between learning spells, Violet is being investigated by the Magickal Council. A reporter out to debunk spiritualists was "genied"--her soul imprisoned inside a bottle--in Violet's shop, and she can't prove she didn't do it. Meanwhile, her non-magickal life has become complicated when one of her crystal shop customers, Nicole St. James, goes missing and turns up dead, a victim of murder.
Determined to solve both crimes, Violet taps into powers she doesn't understand, much less control--and finds herself conjuring up both supernatural and mortal enemies...

I received this book for free in exchange for an honest review. All opinions expressed are my own. I receive no compensation for reviews.
The one thing I hated about this was that it ended on a cliffhanger, which is why I took off a star. I hate cliffhangers. They really drive me up a wall. That being said, I loved a lot about this book. I mean, the fact that you could teleport yourself was simply awesome. The mystery was good even though it didn’t get solved in this book. Since I hadn’t read the first, I felt like I was missing a few things. This is certainly a series to read in order so you don’t miss anything.
In my opinion, Violet Mooney was a great character. She owns a crystal shop and then discovers that she is a witch. A witch’s mother and sister have suddenly shown up in her life. If only she could manage to run her business and her witch world in harmony things would be great. what in the world could go wrong? Only everything!
