I like this series....mostly. It feels a lot like Ellery Adams' Charmed Pie Shoppe series.......and Adams comes out on top for me. These are pretty good books, but the characters' presence just aren't as strong for me. This was a decent mystery and Katie is coming along with the acceptance of her abilities. Hope to see more of her mother. I'll keep reading, but I much prefer the Home Crafting series this author writes as Cricket McRae.
