The 6th book in Madelyn Alt's Bewitching series open with Maggie finally ready to have a romantic evening with her yummy lover boy Marcus Quinn.
After wasting too much time with the wrong man, local police officer Tom Fielding in previous books Maggie finally ended up with Marcus in the last book.
Now if they could just have enough alone time to seal the deal if you know what I mean ;-) Right now it just doesn't seem to be in the cards because wouldn't you know it just when things are about to get good Maggie's sister Mel goes into labor- and from there on things get crazy. Because first- surprise Mel had twins. Then her husband does a disappearing act. Then Maggie takes a tumble.
During this craziness there are two more deaths in the once quiet little burg of Stony Mill. One a local teenager and another from something much more sinister. And everything seems to be connected, Maggie just isn't sure how. But she's afraid the sinister sounding whispered plans she heard while being stuck in elevator at the hospital may have something to do with it.
I absolutely love Madelyn Alt's Bewitching series. It's fun, flirty, magickal and so easy to read. No over the top violence, in fact all the violence seems to happen off camera and the sex...so far nada. Just a few heated possible PG scenes, tops PG 13 and that could be pushing it.
The main character Maggie is such a fun woman to read about and Marcus...yum...I really want to learn more about him. He's been a constant throughout the series but only in the last two books have he and Maggie become close- even though readers knew all alone he's the one she should be with.
But other than that we just get hints about Marcus, little snippets into who he is and what his true power is. I hope more will be revealed about him in the future. Liss too. She was uncharacteristically absent through most of this book. She had a few scenes but nothing compared to the previous interaction between her and Maggie. I kinda missed Liss in this book.
A Witch in Time was a fast paced read that kept me turning pages. In fact I stayed up late two nights in a row just to finish this book. Awesome. I hope to read more of Maggie and Marcus soon.
