Life is busier than ever for witch Ophelia Jensen. In addition to her day job at the library, she—with the help of her grandmother Abby—is preparing to officially adopt Tink, the young medium she's taken under her wing. So when Ophelia's elderly Aunt Dot, eager for adventure, wants to investigate the murder of a funeral director in the neighboring town, Ophelia tries to say no. But then Tink's dog pulls a skull out of the woods—a skull that may belong to a murder victim.

Finding mysterious bones in the woods isn't the only strange thing that's happened to Tink lately. She's been having visions of ghastly ghosts imploring her for help. But before Ophelia can connect the apparitions with the murder, Tink is kidnapped! Ophelia and Abby will have to battle a creepy crematorium owner and an invasion from some modern-day body snatchers to find their protégé . . . or else they'll have to hold a séance just to speak to her again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I can't get enought Ophelia and Abby Abby’s sister Dot has come for a visit. Dot’s gift, she see’s fairies and Dot would like to solve a murder. Ophelia has received a letter from an attorney saying that Tink’s uncle would like to give Ophelia permanent custody. Darci is going back to school, and the library gets some new help. Darci gets Ophelia to go speed dating. Add the murder of a funeral director with the cliché second wife and disgruntled family, plus a dead man’s head on a camping trip. To make matters worse someone kidnaps Tink. How is Ophelia going to fix this! Ophelia and Darci start poking around and almost get caught, but they did find some useful information. ***Spoiler*** Now they need to get help from Bill and Ethan. How are Ophelia and Darci going to explain the visions and trespassing? Ophelia is so desperate to find Tink that she is willing to do almost anything, including telling them about the gifts that Abby and her have. With Ethan helping Ophelia starts to track down the suspects one by one. Book five and I still love this series. These books are fast paced and lots of fun.
