Petty Magic: Being the Memoirs and Confessions of Miss Evelyn Harbinger, Temptress and Troublemaker

Petty Magic: Being the Memoirs and Confessions of Miss Evelyn Harbinger, Temptress and Troublemaker - Camille DeAngelis Evelyn Harbinger is a 149 year old witch and still wants to be the young girl she was once. A little glimmer, a little glamour and she is transformed into a young girl who turns heads wherever she goes. No harm in having a little fun is there? That is until she falls in love with Justin, who is so much like her lost love Jonah that she believes he has come back to her.

This alone would make a charming story. However Ms. DeAngelis throws in some WWII background and a 60 year old murder mystery and soon the story becomes as cluttered and difficult to manuever through as the Curiosity Shop where Justin works. By the second half of this book I found myself skimming through whole sections to get back to the parts I found interesting. Not my favourite way to finish a book.
