As a bookish, introverted database programmer, Morgen Keller never thought she was a candidate for a midlife crisis. That was before her husband divorced her, her boss let her go, and her grandmother died. Forty wasn’t supposed to look like this.

When Morgen heads up to the small town of Bellrock, Washington, to settle the estate, she looks forward to taking a peaceful break from life and figuring out what she’s going to do next.

But peace isn’t to be had. The old farmhouse is full of witch paraphernalia, a fearsome werewolf has claimed the property, and contrary to what the family was told, Grandma didn’t die of natural causes.

Embroiled in a mystery, and heir to powers she knew nothing about, Morgen must turn to the only person who might be able to help: the werewolf who threatened to rip her throat out for trespassing.

This isn’t the fresh start on life that Morgen had in mind.


Mind over Magic is book one in the Witch in Wolf Wood series by Lindsay Buroker.

Morgan is newly divorced, unemployed, and never expected to find witches, werewolves, and a magical inheritance. She moves to her grandmother’s place after her death and is pulled into finding out who killed her grandma, but she’s not alone the residential werwolf is there to help her out.

It was a decent start to the series. The story is funny, intriguing, and a nice read. It had some interesting aspects I enjoyed and some I don’t quite care for, but still I had fun with this first book.

Rated: 3 Stars

    • I just read book 2 in this series and enjoyed it. I like how things are developing. Buroker has a few series I’ve got on my TBR and one that I’ve read but haven’t finished is Death Before Dragons. Happy Reading!

  2. I haven’t read this but it does sound like a pretty good book.
