Summary

If you like quirky characters, lots of twists and turns in your mysteries, and a whole lot of fun, then The Witch Squad is for you! Included in this collection are the first three books: The Witch Squad, Son of a Witch, and Witch Degrees of Separation.

Book one: The Witch Squad

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 sticky-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, Mercy must put aside her feelings of resentment about her gift and put her paranormal abilities to good use.

Book two: Son of a Witch

Mercy Habernackle has just gotten the surprise of a lifetime. She has a brother...and not just any brother, but a dark, mysterious, and incredibly hot brother.

Given up for adoption 24 years ago, Reign Alexander just wants to get to know his long-lost sister, but things take a dangerous turn when, on his first night in Aspen Falls, a woman ends up dead in Reign’s bed!

Desperate to prove her brother’s innocence and save her mother from heartache, Mercy enlists the help of the Witch Squad to find out who really killed Harper Bradshaw. But when Mercy discovers that her brother has been lying to her since he got to town, she must ask herself if her brother is really as innocent as he begs her to believe? 

Book three: Witch Degrees of Separation

The first six weeks of witch college has been emotionally draining and physically exhausting for Mercy Habernackle. She’s had to adjust to a new environment and to a new group of friends. She’s solved several murders, saved her roommate from an abduction, found out she had a brother, and her mother came to town. All she wants is a break. 

When her roommate suggests the Witch Squad take flying lessons as a way to unwind, Mercy is happy to cut loose.

cute story

this wasnt bad book narrator is good because she can do different voices but they were annoying and high pitched and whiney. most girls don't talk like that. She needed to give the guys deeper voices do the girls could have more normal voices. story was cute and kept me interested n enough. this Jax voice got on my nerves

the voices

Some of the voices are extremely annoying and whiny. You will roll your eyes a few times during the story/plot twist, but overall i loved all 3 books.

Too many shrill voices to have to listen to!

OMG!!!! The voices that this narrator chose for the characters are so shrill it’s like nails on a chalkboard in the first book when one of the girls gets kidnapped I was so happy I was hoping she would get killed because I could not stand her voice but two characters have this voice then some other character comes in with this voice.... it’s awful!!!!! By the second book I just could not take it anymore it’s just so horrible to listen to it’s bad enough that the lead it is so incredibly stupid she blames everybody she doesn’t like for committing murder that she’s just so dumb and she supposed to be 19 years old but I swear she’s like 15!!! Really hated these books between the voices and how stupid the main character is.

Definitely a young adult (or younger) series.

A whole lot of whining, teenage angst, and high, squeaky voices. The only three characters I really cared for were Mercy, Houston, and Alba. That might be because of the narrator. Some of the voices really did hit the dog whistle range. Each book did have a decent mystery.
