The Last Witch Blurb
Back in 1974, the dormant Irish village of Seacross is shocked by the gruesome circumstances of young Margaret Morehouse’s death. Forty-five years later history seems to repeat itself and the quiet life of the coastal Irish village is suddenly shaken by a series of ritualistic murders. Someone had broken the pact of secrecy to obtain justice, but if the truth comes out nobody will be spared, from the future Taoiseach to the local men of power.Provided by Damppebbles Blog Tours for Tour Use
The Last Witch is a stupendous murder mystery. When I read the blurb for this book, I knew I had to read it. Murder in a small town and witches? What more could you ask for? Luckily, Sabina Gabrielli Carrara knows what she’s doing because this book is fabulous! I am so excited that this is a series as I can’t wait for more Seacross and Inspector McCabe.
The premise of this book is amazing. Three inseparable friends think they have gotten away with their crimes. But, what happens when others find out about them? I won’t spoil it, but let’s just say it is juicy stuff. I hung on every word.
I knew who the killer was right away. If that was the big mystery, I am a bit disappointed. However, the other reveal at the end got me. I wasn’t expecting it at all, and I let out that breath I didn’t know I was holding.
Also, I was a bit put out with McCabe in the beginning. He has a bit of a chauvinistic attitude that turned me off. But, as he started putting the clues together and getting his head out of his bum, I liked him more and more. Annette was adorable, and I enjoyed her from the start.
I was looking forward to this novel, and I loved every minute of it. Thus, I award The Last Witch a full 5 out of 5 stars. I hope that Carrara finds a way to bring even more magic to the next installment.
