Meanwhile, tourists are crowding its picturesque streets, and magic is being bottled up and sold as health remedies. Moira finds herself in the thick of the murder investigation, all the while trying to hold her nosy family and destiny at bay. Destiny comes in the form of Liam Good. A Wicked is fated to fall in love with a Good once every century. No pressure or anything.

    A witchy cozy mystery. A cute story that nicely sets up the series. It is more about Moira and her family than the murder. Regardless, I enjoyed the characters, the back stories and the development of the relationships.

    Hello Fellow Readers, I've been wanting to read a cozy mystery for a while, and I thought I finally found one that suited my needs. This had witches, a charming town, and magic potions everything I wanted but it fell surprisingly short. First of all, Moira, which means fate and destiny, is an okay character. She's smart and driven but I didn't feel attached to her. I actually didn't feel attached to any character in this book, and the reason is because of the romance aspect. Now don't get me wro Hello Fellow Readers, I've been wanting to read a cozy mystery for a while, and I thought I finally found one that suited my needs. This had witches, a charming town, and magic potions everything I wanted but it fell surprisingly short. First of all, Moira, which means fate and destiny, is an okay character. She's smart and driven but I didn't feel attached to her. I actually didn't feel attached to any character in this book, and the reason is because of the romance aspect. Now don't get me wrong, when I read a book like this I expect there to be romance but I expect it to be secondary to the actual murder mystery plot. However, this book pretty much shoves it in your face from the get go, so much so that I actually didn't want Moira, which means fate and destiny, to get together with Liam. I was hoping she'd meet someone else.The actual murder seemed almost like an afterthought, which bugged me because I that's why I like to read these books. Also, the whole fate and destiny thing (because that's what Moira means) was told over, and over, and over. I get it, a Good is destined to marry a Wicked every generation but come on anytime she had a conversation with someone it was brought up. Before I even properly got to know Liam I was already sick of him, and he wasn't a bad guy at all. Overall, I think I may pass on this series which is an oddity for me.

    Quite enjoyable I am a bit lost with the whole incest-like families, but hey, witches need to keep their powers in a close circle. But anyway, if dad was an original descendant of Wicked, and mum was from an other witch family, how is it that the previous generation's "fate couple " was l Aunt Lea (therefore not a Wicked) and Uncle Jacob? Logical hick aside, I liked the storytelling and the humor.

    This book was okay but certainly nothing special. It goes on ad nauseum about Moira meaning fate or destiny, about Moira trying to ignore both, about the feud between the Wicked's and Good's, how both families are always blamed for everything that goes wrong in Charm Cove, and how Moira and Liam are destined to be together. It got old really fast. The murder was basically a secondary plot and the way it wrapped up was a real let down.

It got old really fast. The murder was basically a secondary plot and the way it wrapped up was a real let down. The culprits weren't even part of the story until they were needed to confess. How the police are going to try them for using magic to kill someone is left to the imagination. When I read the blurb after reading the book, it is like someone who skimmed the book wrote it. For example, it says she has been moved back home one day when a body is found. She was home for a visit and didn't move back home for another week or so. Another example is a Wicked is fated to marry a good every century. In the story, it says every generation. These 2 examples are indicative of the way the story is written. There were also a lot of grammar errors.

    Welcome back to Charm Cove Moira! Oh, and watch out for that dead body! Moira Wicked, part of the Wicked family of witches (they're not really bad) is contemplating coming back home to Charm Cove, Maine. She's unhappy at her job, but thanks to a little familial interference...her boss is now mooning over her. To make matters worse? He's engaged! Oops! Before Moira can truly take that step to quit her job and move back home for at least a break, a dead body pops up in the middle of town. Yikes! P Welcome back to Charm Cove Moira! Oh, and watch out for that dead body! Moira Wicked, part of the Wicked family of witches (they're not really bad) is contemplating coming back home to Charm Cove, Maine. She's unhappy at her job, but thanks to a little familial interference...her boss is now mooning over her. To make matters worse? He's engaged! Oops! Before Moira can truly take that step to quit her job and move back home for at least a break, a dead body pops up in the middle of town. Yikes! Poor guy seems to have drowned. But Alvin drowning in a horse trough/fountain that he could have easily gotten out of? Something isn't right in this picture. So! Let the investigating begin! Sometimes being freshly back to town has its perks...gossip! Destiny's a Witch by Lucy May is a fun, entertaining, and riveting cozy mystery novel. Moira has been fighting destiny ever since a slight case of jealousy caused her to have a bit of a nasty incident in college. Every generation in Charm Cove someone in the Good family line and someone in the Wicked family line is destined to get married. Moira and Liam (her ex-boyfriend) seem like the destined pair. They both try to balk destiny, but destiny seems determined to bring them back together. I love how the author works this entire storyline. Liam and Moira work together and even come together in some sticky situations. I love the level of mystery that the author gives the reader in this book. You work along with the characters to try and figure out who in this town of witches and warlocks committed this crime and others that follow. I feel that the author does a fantastic job filling in gaps and answering questions as the story goes along. This is the first book in this series and the author does a fantastic job with it. We get a story within a story. We get information about the past at appropriate moments and everything is brought to light as it should and when it should be. I love it! There is honestly nothing that I don't like about this book. Everything is so well thought out and put together beautifully. If you are a fan of paranormal cozy mystery novels with some humor, romance and magic then this book is a perfect fit for you. I am rating this book 5 out of 5 stars. I cannot wait for the next book in this series! I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review.

    Destiny's a Witch is a cute, cozy, kitschy mystery involving a town full of witches, warlocks, and humans. Throw in a bit of romance and you have this adorable story. This is what a cute, cozy mystery should be. I chose to read this book based on two things - the cute cover and the title. I figured the book would be cute and I wasn't disappointed in the least.

I figured the book would be cute and I wasn't disappointed in the least. For someone who normally reads books that are either sexually charged, horror, fantasy, or YA, this was a refreshing change from the normal. Lucy May did an excellent job of spinning a tale of murder, romance, and fun without all the cursing and dark themes that normally pervade the books I read. Moira is a sweet, lovable woman who might have made a magical mistake in the past - one that it seems she can't let go of as she mentions is multiple times in the book. Liam is the dashing ex-flame who might be an ex but is still a flame and frankly, I agree with the idea that they're fated to be together, but I'm just the reader, so what do I know? You'll get a big kick out of the antics of the twins and all the meddling and gossiping about Moira and Liam. I loved that the background of the town itself was given as opposed to just making the town the place they live and nothing more. It gave the story, and I'll dare say the series, more depth to have the town itself have a background besides just giving the characters a background. I love the little town and I can't wait to read more about it. I did find that there were a few places in this book where the spelling or grammar was off - sometimes words were misspelled, sometimes words were missing, and sometimes the wrong words were in place. If this is something that bothers you a lot, you'll want to keep this in mind. However, as I did have an uncorrected ARC of the book, it is possible that these issues may be fixed by the time this is properly published. I gave this book 5 stars for the absolute joy it was to read and how utterly cute this book was. I can't wait to read the second book which is due out in October 2018.

    Moira Wicked entered Persnickety Potions & Gifts to talk to her Aunt Lea. She had sold Brian Spencer, her boss, a love potion, and now he wouldn’t leave Moira alone! Aunt Lea was a very powerful witch and could reverse the spell without even having to leave her shop. But she bargained with Moira to come back home to Charm Cove, which she had left two years ago when she simply needed a break. Since then, the family continued to pressure her to return.

But she bargained with Moira to come back home to Charm Cove, which she had left two years ago when she simply needed a break. Since then, the family continued to pressure her to return. They had also believed she was fated to be with Liam. In every generation, a member of the Wicked and the Good families, the original town founders long ago, ended up falling in love and getting married. Because they dated through high school and college, they were the most likely couple, at least until he married someone else – part of the reason she chose to move out of town. As Moira left the shop, she heard Liam Good call her name. Not wanting to see him, she disappeared in a puff of smoke – and ended up in Persnickety Potions’ bathroom! Exiting the store again, hoping he took the hint and left, she saw him leaning against a pole right where her car was parked. There was a scream, and both of them raced to the fountain in the center of town and spotted the dead body floating in the water. The police chief, Daniel, questioned several people. Then he asked if Moira knew Liam was divorced now! Why does everyone keep bringing up that “fate” story? Moira gave up trying to be “normal” and decided to move back home. Moira loved her carriage house near her parents’ property. Her grandmother had willed it to her. Her mom told her she was happy to have her home, and that she had told Liam Moira needed help moving in! And Moira is drawn to the accident/murder investigation that she feels she needs to follow. Will her feelings for Liam grow stronger now? Will they join together to solve the murder? What fate does the future hold for them? This was a well written story that I thoroughly enjoyed. Cozy mysteries, when done well, can draw in the reader and keep the action flowing. Add a little romance, and you have the perfect book! This one has some fun and mystery, so don’t miss out!

    This is a very fun cozy mystery about a 20 something-year-old witch named Moira Wicked. Having finished college and been on her own for a few years, she has just returned to her hometown, Charm Cove, Maine. She has been trying to live in denial of her magic abilities but came to the conclusion it is way too much work to deny who you really are, so moving home where there are a number of witching families made sense. In Charm Cove, there are two major witching families; the Goods and the Wickeds. This is a very fun cozy mystery about a 20 something-year-old witch named Moira Wicked.

In Charm Cove, there are two major witching families; the Goods and the Wickeds. The two families have a long history of magic strength, feuding, and every couple of generations a marriage uniting the two that keeps the town hopping. Both families have been pushing Moira to marry Liam Good because it is obviously time and their destiny. Being hard-headed and independent, Moira wants to find her own husband but then how does one explain feeling a little faint whenever Liam is around? The mystery comes in when shortly after returning home, Moira discovers a dead body in the town fountain. Is it an accident or murder? Moira is determined to weed through all of the suspects to find what really happened. May has done a great job keeping this light and quirky. The characters are great fun, the magic used is great for a laugh and the story is believable enough to make me want to be a witch in Charm Cove. This is a great beach/pool read and even better ‘I am trapped inside because of COVID-19 and need some smiles!’ read.

    The author, Lucy May, knows how to write a relaxing, fun, and "charming" story, just what you need to unwind after a stressful day or week. Charmed Cove is a small town where everybody knows everyone. Now add in an overbearing family that knows best and not afraid to tell you so. Moira means Fate/Destiny, and is not a name you want to have in a witch family. She's been told forever that she is "destined" to marry Liam Good and their love is "fated", and that's why she moved away to New York.

Shortly after Moira begins asking questions about Alvin, a bolt of lightening destroys a display case right next to her. Now they know magic is involved. Who and Why? I'm giving only 4 stars as much of this story was background and bringing us-up-to-date, but still a good read. I do expect future installments will have more story and maybe summarize the background in a forward. It's not full of fast, high flying action, but it is a good curl up in your chair, relax and enjoy the story book. Now, on to the next installment of Moira's trials and tribulations.

    This was an enjoyable book. I like it better than the Lemon Tea series, which is also about a witch. I liked Destiny's a Witch for a few reasons. 1.

This sounds stupid, but in some witchy mysteries, magic is barely present. It was here from page one, and I liked that a lot. Now, I do have two problems with the book. 1. I had a teensy bit of a difficult time connecting to the characters. I wish Moira and Liam's relationship was more fleshed out, and the same with her other, platonic, relationships. It just brought the book down a star for me. That being said, I will still read book two (hello, I have to see what happens!) 2. The whole murder was meh. They confessed pretty easily. But I did like Moira and Liam working together! So, this was overall a four star read. Despite having a couple of problems, I did enjoy the book and its premise, and I want to read more in the Wicked Good series.

All the family is pleased and all of them want her to nose around in the death of a local man who drowned in the green fountain. The more she learns, the more questions she has. Questions that seem to have struck a cord as the "truth" pendant is attacked. Worse her old boyfriend has also returned after his divorce and everyone's eyes are on them. The characters are good but will gain extra depths with further books.

    Confusing and repetitive The family tree is a pretzel. With the way the author has the dynamics laid out, there’s cousinly incest in the works. The main character is obnoxious, the narrative is full of telling rather than showing, and the main character repeats herself about who characters are or how events happened multiple times. She described the college incident at least three times. Mentioning that Jacob is Liam’s uncle happened about four. The name puns keep getting repeated.

And the main character says “Whatever” more than once in every single conversation for the first half of the book. There are also a bunch of spelling errors and missing words. It feels like the author dashed out a first draft with no actual mystery to it and just threw it up online. I’ve read plenty of self-published books, and really enjoyed a lot of them, but this is one author I won’t be purchasing from again.

Again, Ms. May has an open-ended ending; does that make sense? In other words, there is more to come in this series and I relish the thought.

    Great read. It is a quick read. It is funny and has magic and a good story line. It all takes place in a town called Charm Cove, Maine. There are two families involved in this series of books, the Goods and the Wicked's. These are their actual last names of the two families. Moira Wicked is trying to avoid her fate, or destiny, whichever you want to call it. It is said that every generation there is a fated match between the 2 families.

There also happens to be a murder in Charm Cove and it somehow involves the two families and has to do with their magic. They are witches and Mages. Very interesting plot. They have to solve it. Funny in spots but serious in others. Highly recommend.

    Destiny's A Witch - I like this book better than Witch You Wouldn't Believe and Witch is When it Gets Crazy. The witches and warlocks are likable and their dialog realistic. I'm happy to see a male is called a warlock instead of witch (PC is so stupid with the sexes). Well written, clean but with sexual attraction makes this story entertaining. Add mischievous teenage witches, nosy friends and family on top of family pressure to do the Destiny thing, while determining if a death was an accident Destiny's A Witch - I like this book better than Witch You Wouldn't Believe and Witch is When it Gets Crazy.

Never mind if there's a second chance for them or it is Destiny, there's a lot of happenings. Pretty good story without the usual stupid drama found in a lot of this genre. 4*

But I like puzzling along whodunit and I couldn’t do that in this case; the information to figure it out just wasn’t there. But I really liked it. It was fun! I voluntarily reviewed a copy of this book via Booksprout.

    3.5 Stars The Wickeds and the Goods, two witch families, have held sway in Charm Cove for hundreds of years. Two members of the latest generation, Moira and Liam, have attempted living away in "normal" cities but have returned home. Legend has it that one member of the Good family will marry one member of the Wicked family, but these two are bucking tradition. To add to the confusion, a suspicious death occurs as they arrive in their hometown.

The characters were interesting, likeable, and believable despite their element of magic. And the setting, it's a paradise - a lovely little town nestled on the coast of Maine. I'm quite certain I'll return.

    Love it! Love it! Love it! Worth way more than 5 stars!!!!! First in a new series by this author and is now one of my favorites to keep reading. Who really wants to know that your love has been destined and not know if for yourself. I know that I do not and feel for the Lucy and Liam. Really just to keep things steady a spell so a Good marries a Wicked. Read the story to understand that statement, lol Really great character development in this book. Feel like I know them and love them already. Canno Love it! Love it! Love it! Worth way more than 5 stars!!!!! First in a new series by this author and is now one of my favorites to keep reading.

    Destiny's A Witch is a paranormal cozy set along the Maine coastline. Our protagonist (Moira Wicked) returns to her hometown of Charm Cove, first for a visit (and to have a love spell which her Aunt cast be reversed) but eventually for good. The plot point about the move 'home' carries throughout the book as Moira has somewhat mixed feelings about her destiny as a witch AND about her 'fated' love of another townsperson, Liam Good. Along the way, there's a death to be solved, as well. The author Destiny's A Witch is a paranormal cozy set along the Maine coastline.

I look forward to reading the 2nd book in the series.

    The book is set in a witchy town called Charm Cove located in Maine which centered around Moira Wicked and her return home after living somewhere else for a while.

Moira Wicked and Liam Good are the chosen couple to wed to join the families. Moira moved away to escape the pressure. One of the warlocks was murdered and Moira is on the hunt to determine who killed him. The story mainly revolved around Liam and Moira’s relationship. They was some magic, but the solving of the murder was anticlimactic.

    Enjoyed reading the first book in this series and look forward to more of the same. Good story, plot and characters, which makes for pleasant reading. Moira, although she is a witch, is not really much different than other people in that she doesn't want to accept herself for what she is and be content and work with it, which is a problem so very many people face. I look forward to reading more of this series, but I do hope that the relationship between Moira and Liam can work itself into more th Enjoyed reading the first book in this series and look forward to more of the same.

I look forward to reading more of this series, but I do hope that the relationship between Moira and Liam can work itself into more than just what appears to be an arranged marriage, which, in and of itself, is rather dull. But I look forward to reading the next book and seeing what the author has in store for them and where life will be taking them.

    I received a copy of this book for a fair and honest review. The book had a good start and held me captive for most of the book. I love the names of the characters and the name of the little town. What drew me to this book was the cover and the title of course. My name is Destiny after all. It pulled me and I love Moira. The fate love thing does seem to get on her nerves, but she is a Wicked and it comes with the territory. I love her Aunt Lea. She just seems to be filled with all kinds of sass I received a copy of this book for a fair and honest review. The book had a good start and held me captive for most of the book.

    Do you believe in magic? A witch paranormal series following Moira as she leaves New York City and returns to charm cove. The book is repetitive at times telling you the same thing in descriptions of the places or people she is at/with. I liked the storyline it was different to other witch murder books. I think as the series progresses the characters will become stronger and Moira will settle back at home, but the question is will she find love herself or will her family and friends push her to h Do you believe in magic?

    Needs editing When I started reading this book I thought it was a 5 star winner. Unfortunately as I read more, some major issues became apparent. Things were repeated over and over and over again in almost the same words. While the characters were very likable, the mystery basically slowed down to a trickle. When it was solved it was with characters who I was left saying "Who?" about. There were numerous grammatical errors, with some sentences not making sense. This book shows promise but needs a Needs editing When I started reading this book I thought it was a 5 star winner. Unfortunately as I read more, some major issues became apparent.

    Fun Read with Mystery and Witches Overall, this was a fun and enjoyable read. The author captures the beauty and essence of the Maine coast. The story is enjoyable and Moira, our reluctant witch returning home, is quirky and dives into the role of detective without much driving her. The story was interesting which helps get past a few too many “no pun intended “ comments. The main characters are well developed. There are a lot of possible story arcs set up by this first book in the series.
