Nineteen-year-old Mercy Habernackle is a witch gone off the rails. Causing problems with the law in her hometown, she's faced with two options. Go to a correctional institution or get shipped off to witch boarding school, or as her mother prefers to call it, finishing school. Choosing the latter, Mercy's mother, Linda, drives her daughter cross country to the Paranormal Institute for Witches, situated high in the beautiful Appalachian Mountains in cozy Aspen Falls, Pennsylvania.
Upon arrival, Mercy is faced with cheerful smiles, friendly people, and a sickly sweet roommate who has turned their dorm room into an advertisement for the Pottery Barn. Mercy had hoped her fellow witches would be more like her, dark, dreary, and a little bit self-destructive.
When the murder of a local teenager takes place on the first day of class, Sorceress Stone, headmistress of the college for wayward witches, takes the class on a consulting job to help the Aspen Falls Police Department solve the murder. Mercy and her mismatched classmates find themselves in the heart of the murder investigation and when the body of the murder victim suddenly goes missing and her roommate turns up abducted, Mercy must put aside her feelings of resentment about her gift and put her paranormal abilities to good use.
Throw in a smokin' hot cowboy wizard, a black cat that seems to be stalking her, and a Black Witch and you've got the first book in the new Witch Squad Cozy Mystery Series where the twists and turns just don't stop!

Very easy but fun read
The story felt a bit unbalanced as the main characters are in college and about 19, they can drive and there's plenty talk of boobs and some really of sex or no sex, but aside from that they don't behave any differently to middle grade boarding school book characters... It was a fun and easy read, but the characters, and especially the forming of new best friend within 2 hours, even you're supposedly unsocial just felt way to shallow for a book targeted at a young adult or new adult audience.
The narration was mostly fine, but all the people giggle/laugh in the exact same manner, which was very annoying.
