While her boss becomes entranced with a beautiful armoire at the countywide craft bazaar, Maggie can’t help noticing the Amish craftsman who made it. Though his clothes may be plain, he himself is more handsome than a man sporting a jawline-only beard has any right to be. And he seems pretty aware that the ladies love his…furniture. But when the hunky craftsman turns up dead with a strange hex symbol near his corpse, Maggie wonders if the craft involved is the witchy kind.
Hex Marks The Spot by Madelyn Alt
Maggie is an empath who feels other people’s feelings. She is a member of the town’s ghost hunting group and lately everyone has been feeling that something is going on in the town. Luc, a local Amish man is killed in a very violent manner and Maggie and her friends are trying to find out who did it.
It’s starting to look like his wife may have had something to do with it. She is an outsider and the other Amish women don’t trust her. They think she has put a hex on their farm animals and possibly her behavior was the cause of Luc’s death. Maggie isn’t sure what’s going on but she knows something is and is set on figuring out what it is.
I love both Amish and paranormal mysteries and the author expertly combines both genres in a very realistic story. I had a hard time putting it down because I was too busy trying to figure out who did it. If you enjoy either genre, I definitely recommend you read this.
