Girl's Guide to Witchcraft by Mindy L Klasky

Title: Girl's Guide to Witchcraft

Author: Mindy L Klasky

Genre: Fantasy

Summary: Jane, librarian of a private library that holds records from Colonial America, discovers that she is a witch.

The Take-Away: This title was a great set-up for the series. The future plot lines are drawn, but don't overshadow the current story.

The stakes are high when Jane is forced to accept a paycut but compensated with a cottage on the library grounds to cover the lost wages. They are raised when the scholar of her dreams accepts her dinner invitation. The ante is upped again when her mother, missing since Jane's childhood, comes back into her life.

It seems like too many plot lines to keep track of but Klasky handles it masterfully. An extremely entertaining read.

Recommendation: Check it out, and keep an eye out for future titles in the series.
