Review: Mystery. Suspense. The paranormal. A murder? Season of the Witch has it all. I wasn’t sure what to expect from this book when I picked it up off of NetGalley. I don’t have any prior experience with the author, but it seemed interesting and worth a read. And it definitely proved to be well worth it.
Gabriel is approached by an old friend from his past to investigate the disappearance of her stepson, Robert. It seems like a simple enough assignment until he quickly finds himself immersed in the world of the Monk sisters – two mysterious and beautiful women who have much more lurking below the surface than he could ever have imagined. But what really happened to Robert? And will Gabriel figure it out in time to save others from danger?
It’s rare that I read a mystery and find myself going back and forth and guessing right up until the final reveal. I had bits and pieces figured out, but there are enough twists in the story that just when you think you know the fully answer, you quickly find out that it’s just not quite right.
Very highly recommend this for anyone interested in mystery, especially with a touch of the paranormal and some romance thrown in as well.
