 All it takes is one morning for Sydney Photographer Lily Bianchi's life to go off the rails and over a cliff. 

A well-dressed English woman turns up at her door, swearing she's a witch. If that’s not crazy enough, she explains Lily’s brother, James, has been kidnapped and the Paranormal Investigation Bureau needs Lily’s help finding him. 

And the craziest part? The Englishwoman tells Lily she's a witch too. Before she can say, “Where’s my coffee?” she’s on a plane bound for Westerham, England. Unfortunately, England’s not as welcoming as she hoped--she's barely arrived before she gets set up, arrested and almost shot. 

Things can only get better from here, right? Yeah, right…

Love a good cozy mystery especially when it is paranormal in nature. This was a freebie so even better ;)

The story follows Lily who is a photographer and just living her life when strange things start happening. Some English lady shows up stating that she is a witch and so is Lily. On top of all of this Lily's brother has been kidnapped. The Paranormal Investigation Bureau, PIB, needs Lily's help to find him. 

Ooooh Lily. Poor thing. She has been experiencing some crazy things since her birthday and now her brother, James, is kidnapped and she has to deal with these powers that came all of a sudden. I liked Lily a lot. She made me laugh! 

This was a quick read and I liked how light this was. It had humor. Sure there is the mystery on hand, but I had no real worries James was dead or anything. It was a pretty easy mystery at a certain point. Quick and light. Just the type of book I needed! 

Even though I liked Lily, I did find it odd how easily she accepted everything. There was some doubt, sure, but she did it in stride pretty easy. This is my only real complaint. Everything else was just cozy. 

Overall, this was a quick and fun read. A nice mystery with some humor and paranormal stuff. I'll give this a 4.
