Some of my favorite books ever. I was in my young 20s living in Queens, working in the Upper East Side in the early 90s, chasing Hip Hop and eclectic religion. This series puts me back there. I can taste and smell Bast's experiences. Will read again in due time. ( )

This collection is proof that I do like mysteries sometimes! It was recommended to me by a teacher from high school, so it must be good right? It is, don’t worry.

Title: Bell, Book, and Murder
Author: Rosemary Edghill
Length: 448 pages (paperback)
Setting: Modern day, New York, our universe as far as I can tell
Premise: Bast is a normal person, but in suspicious about the death of a friend in the first book, then people start relying on her to solve mysteries for them. She’s also Wiccan, which isn’t really relevant, but is done quite accurately and therefore deserves praise.
Strengths:
Very interesting plot twists, you’ll never see them coming
Accurate portrayal of Wicca
Well rounded characters, including the main character, who definitely was also duped at one point
Weaknesses:
It’s a little grisly a few times
It does have the classic problem that books involving normal people solving mysteries do, in that it seems highly improbable that this would ever happen :-)
There are no more books past these three :-(
The second one might have taken some liberties with history, but I am no expert
Apparently according to mystery readers these books aren’t that hard to figure out (proves how many mysteries I read… I was stumped :-) )
Summary: These stories are a little hard for me to classify, since they aren’t fantasy, but they aren’t really that strong of mysteries, but there is the Wicca element. I guess it’s a fiction that is a bit mysterious? Oh well, they are good stories with a delightful character and I recommend them. They can also be instructional about the Wicca religion if you’ve ever been curious, since they are quite accurate. ( )

Well written by an insider with lots of wry humour and good pacing. ( )

This was my first foray into pagan fiction. I read so much pagan non-fiction, it seemed like a logical leap. I was, for the most part, not disappointed.
Bell, Book, and Murder contains three books. The first, Speak Daggers to Her is probably the best. It opens with our heroine Bast, a 3rd degree Gardnerian living in New York City and introduces us to a cast of characters such as coven members and book store managers who will remain throughout the series. In Speak Daggers to Her we follow Bast as she searches for a cause for the death of an acquaintance.
The second book, Book of Moons focuses on the mysterious disappearance of several local Witches' Book's of Shadows and a couple more murders, and an outrageous claim. The final book, The Bowl of Night takes Bast to HollowFest where she finds a dead body and finds herself once again playing amateur detective.
All three of the books are highly enjoyable for someone familiar with the inner workings of covens and the pagan community as a whole. I found myself laughing out loud numerous times because I recognized so many of the characters and the situations. As a murder mystery, the books are not as satisfying. The stories are pretty good in that they are interesting, but the "mystery" is only a mystery for the characters. The average reader will have it solved by the 2nd chapter.
If this were average fiction and not pagan fiction, I'd give the book 3/5 stars for this reason. But because the subject matter is entertaining to me personally I give it 4/5. ( )
