If anyone appreciates what it means to be dead to the world, it's Ivy Wilde.

Barely recovered from her brush with necromancy, Ivy is flung once more into a world of intrigue, adventure and potential death and disaster. It's not her fault - it just so turns out that she's now the only person in the entire world who can communicate with the dead. And they're a chatty bunch with a list of demands.

When the ghosts offer information about a witch-hating mass murderer in return for Ivy's help, she has no choice but to get involved. She might be getting herself into more trouble than she realises though - and that's even before she's dragged to Sunday dinner so she can meet Winter's family...

This is the third book in The Lazy Girl's Guide To Magic series.


Spirit Witch is book three in The Lazy Girl’s Guide to Magic by Helen Harper. I recommend reading the series in order. 

I fell for this series the moment I opened book one and each book after has been another fun adventure to enjoy.

Shenanigans ensue with our favorite lazy witch, but now she’s different in that she can see ghosts. Not that she wants to; because said ghosts want her to do things for them; especially a dead former head of the Order of Magic Enlightenment who demands she stop a killer targeting witches.

Ivy, despite wanting a quiet life and to stay away from the order and just cost throw life ends up back in the thick of things. Besides trying to stop a killer with her lover/boyfriend, Rafe Winter, she’s going to meet the parents too. Oh my! 

The banter is fun and I like the romance of opposites attract. I’m happy to see the romance as a side story and not the focal point in this cozy mystery. The adventure and mystery as to who the killer is was enjoyable. 

I had a great time with Ivy, the ghosts we meet along the way, and how things turned out. 

Sprit Witch was a wonderful fun read in this series. If your looking for a fun cozy mystery series then I recommend giving this series a try. 

Rated: 3.5 Stars
