I have long been a fan of J. R. Ripley’s bird lover series so I decided to try this book. I was not disappointed as I found the tale was located in the red rock country of Arizona with the attitudes of the new age. While the term witchcraft is used it is not paranormal. It is Halloween and cafe owner Maggie Miller is serving her special cinnamon beignets to the residents of the town. On a whim, Maggie decided to take the leftovers to a regular customer and finds her dead. Frightened, she called the local sheriff. Not satisfied with the information she received from the sheriff, Maggie joined forces with a newspaper reporter to look into the affair. On this journey, Maggie will meet some quirky denizens that live by the new age beliefs. There will a few twists and turns as the story is revealed. The ending is unusual. I recommend this book.
