It's me again, Stevie Cartwright. Powerless ex-witch, pseudo medium, and amateur sleuth, reporting to you live from the case of the missing ex-British spy turned ghost/quite possibly one of the most important people to ever become a part of my life. You read that right. As Win and I and all the gang were busy planning our big Thanksgiving bash, he suddenly disappeared (right in the middle of telling me what a Philistine I am for even suggesting Cheez Whiz and crackers), and it's as if he never existed. Poof-he's just gone! No one can find him, not even Arkady, our ghostly pal and confidant on Plane Limbo. If I ever needed to make good use of everything my British spy ever taught me about sleuthing, it's right now. But I run into roadblock after roadblock until I'm almost sure all hope is lost, and I'll never hear his voice again. Worse, how will I ever live with myself if I never get the chance to tell him how I feel?
In Witch Way Did He Go? by Dakota Cassidy panic, suspense and sorrow darken our door when Crispin Alistair Winterbottom goes missing. The tale that unfolded was an addictive listen, narrated by Hollie Jackson.
It’s almost Thanksgiving, and the gang is gathered around the kitchen table making a grocery list for their upcoming feast. They are arguing about whether Cheez Whiz is appropriate Thanksgiving fair when Win suddenly disappears. At first, Stevie believes he is mad and has slipped off to limbo…but soon no one can find him.
What if he has crossed into the light or met with foul play? Or worse what if he has tried to slip into a vessel (body) so he can be with Stevie in this realm? What if he failed? As Batfry tries to console her, they stumble on clues which only confuse them more. Stevie fears that Warlock Westfield has enacted his revenge and taken Win from her.
When Arkady cannot find him Stevie fears that all hope is lost. In desperation she contacts someone who might help. But what will it cost her? Dang, this was an addictive listen and filled with emotions. With Win gone, Stevie is forced to face her true feelings, and it was tough seeing her crumble.
Hollie Jackson once again narrated, and she did a fantastic job with Stevie’s emotions. Belfry still grates on my nerves and I noticed it more in this installment. Mostly because she was speaking more. But, her accents for everyone add to the cozy tone and I slip right in.
Witch Way Did He Go? saw movement and showcased how much these characters have become a cozy family, turkey and all.
