Magick Run Amok by Sharon Pape

Kailyn's magic shop is doing well.  She uses herbs and other natural ingredients to make her potions with just a touch of magic to make them work better.  She's dating Travis.  And she and her aunt are trying to keep Merlin from creating too much magic and disturbing the town residents.  She's got her job cut out for her.  Then a journalist gets killed and Travis is sure it was not an accident...

Lyrical Underground and Net Galley allowed me to read this book for review (thank you).  It will be published May 1st.

I love this series.  Merlin is always getting out-of-hand.  The magic she and her aunt can do doesn't always work.  And her other aunt and mother, who are deceased, return as ghosts.  I like the fantasy touches; it makes it a fun cozy to read.

In this story is turns out the dead journalist was Travis' adopted brother.  That makes it much more personal.  They find his journal that shows them the story he was working on but it doesn't make sense to them.  When they discover what it does mean, it gets very dangerous.  There are court cases, attorneys involved and death around the corner.

When Kailyn gets threatened, her cat familiars save her.  But she's not out of danger yet...

This was an enjoyable read and I'd love to read more about these characters.  They make me laugh, even with the danger.
