Ain't Love a Witch? - Dakota Cassidy

After five books with Stephania "Stevie" -- now POV switches to Alastair.  Not a repeat now in a different point of view, just that the book opens in his head instead of hers.

 

A warm little cozy paranormal mystery so far with engaging characters -- very important to me for these types of books.  I actually didn't care for the Paris, Texas series this one and others spun off from -- it was okay as far as I read.  But I was really liking Stevie and her bat Belfry.  The ghost Alastair was fine as a side character and love interest plus has a slowly unveiling storyline that's been interesting.  His frenemy ghost introduced last book is already annoying despite being kind to Stevie -- not really flowing with the storyline for me and I'm tired of reading badly accented Russian and English mix.

 

So could be a bad one to start for the readathon or could be as fun as previous books in series.
