‘Grave Witch’ is the first book in the Alex Craft series. Alex is a private investigator and sometimes consultant for the police. As a Grave Witch she can speak to the dead and raise shades, which is certainly neat.
Due to a couple of unexpected bills Alex is more desperate than usual for work, so she reluctantly accepts her sister hiring her to look into the death of the Governor – with the added complication that his death having put her estranged father in the top job. Naturally the death is anything but natural and things snowball from there.
This is urban fantasy rather than romance which means the plot and characters have to stand up to a certain level of scrutiny – which they mostly did. The plot was interesting and the setting gave a slight twist to the familiar pairing of two people who don’t really get on but need to work and solve the case together.
The book wasn’t perfect, but for the first in a series is was pretty good and better than I remembered.
