Reviewer: Samantha

that old black magicI received a review copy


Lizzie Hart hoped her first day back at work after nearly being killed would be uneventful. No such luck. Before she can finish her morning coffee, Lizzie and her co-workers find a dead body on the rooftop of their office. Media vultures that they are, the Liberty Chronicle employees are psyched to have first-hand news to report. Lizzie, however, is devastated when she realizes that the victim is her ex-boyfriend’s brother.
When evidence begins piling up against one of Lizzie’s friends, she reluctantly dons her detective hat once again, determined to find the real killer. She’s not thrilled about chasing another psychopath around, but she’ll do anything for a friend. Lizzie’s love life is rapidly becoming a hot mess, too. Her latest attempt at sleuthing isn’t leaving much time for her budding romance with town hunk Blake Morgan. Add that to the fact she’s hiding a secret so big it could rock the very core of their relationship, it’s no wonder that Lizzie’s in a tizzy.
Poor Lizzie ends up juggling a murder investigation, a wacky Wiccan coven, and two men vying for her attention—all while nursing injuries left over from the last time she decided to play Nancy Drew. It’s a good thing she always has a few tricks up her sleeve.


Yay! I get so excited when I get to “meet” a new author (virtually, of course) and fall in love with their books. That Old Black Magic is the second book in the Lizzie Hart series and I did not read the first book, but that didn’t impact my reading time except that I really, really want to read book 1 now. I had such a fun time getting to know Lizzie and if you follow my blog you know I love a little magic in my stories, so I was sucked in by the title right away! The writing was fantastic, the storyline had me curious the whole time, and I highly recommend! Even though I haven’t read It’s Just a Little Crush (yet!) I suggest you might want to grab that one too!
