Mystery. Suspense. The paranormal. A murder? Season of the Witch has it all. I wasn't sure what to expect from this book when I picked it up off of NetGalley. I don't have any prior experience with the author, but it seemed interesting and worth a read. And it definitely proved to be well worth it.

Gabriel is approached by an old friend from his past to investigate the disappearance of her stepson, Robert. It seems like a simple enough assignment until he quickly finds himself immersed in the world of the Monk sisters - two mysterious and beautiful women who have much more lurking below the surface than he could ever have imagined. But what really happened to Robert? And will Gabriel figure it out in time to save others from danger?

It's rare that I read a mystery and find myself going back and forth and guessing right up until the final reveal. I had bits and pieces figured out, but there are enough twists in the story that just when you think you know the fully answer, you quickly find out that it's just not quite right.

Very highly recommend this for anyone interested in mystery, especially with a touch of the paranormal and some romance thrown in as well.

This was actually a pretty decent story. It started off slowly and I had very little interest, but I pushed through and ended up enjoying it quite a bit.

The "magic" in this book is one I had not really encountered before and was done in such a way that anyone could grasp and understand it.

The characters were all wonderfully done. The sisters were the perfect amount of mysterious and haughty. Isidore was the classical messy super intelligent side kick.

Gabriel was the classical arrogant protagonist who learns a great lesson and learns the price of his actions through loss. ( )

I really struggled with this book and have not managed to finish it. I have added it to my 'books not finished' list in order to come back to it at a later date. ( )

This was my first book by Natasha Mostert, and I really, really loved it. My only "complaint" was the ending (I kind of didn't get it...or why she ended it like she did), but I understand an author's vision is just that. And I respect it. Love the way she writes. Loved learning about memory palaces...fascinating stuff. ( )
