Delia James, By Familiar Means

By Familiar Means by Delia James is a book I really enjoyed.  Book one A Familiar Tail was really good and I was so looking forward to this one that I ordered it months ago. I still have it on order and got the Shipping notice that is on it's way from The Book Depository. I loved book number two. As a fan of witchcraft mysteries this one is fast becoming one of my go to witchy series!  Main Character Annabelle Britton is trying to start her life over in Portsmouth, New Hampshire, new home, new friends not to mention she recently found out she is a hereditary witch! Filled with questions and angst in book two her Grandma BB arrives to help her learn about herself, her abilities and get mixed up in another mystery. Great story, strong characters, lovely setting, fun familiars as well as a great mystery and a ghost or two....I hope you will love this one as much as I did!
