(A Family Fortune Mystery)
Genre: Cozy Mystery
2nd in Series
Publisher: Berkley (July 1, 2014)
Mass Market Paperback: 304 pages
Leaving a traumatic police career behind, Clyde Fortune has returned to her seemingly quiet hometown of Crystal Haven, Michigan. In spite of the psychic powers of its residents, there’s no telling what trouble is brewing in this burg…
The highlight of the fall festival in Crystal Haven is a bonfire with a witch’s cauldron resting over it. Clyde’s best friend Diana leads a ritual to divine the future, but it seems no one foresees that one of their own will drop dead—or that Diana will be a prime suspect.
Clyde already has her hands full with her eccentric family, runaway nephew, and burgeoning secret romance with a hunky homicide detective. But after another coven member is attacked, Clyde suspects there’s a witch hunt afoot and focuses her psychic and sleuthing skills to clear her friend’s name and catch a killer.
Dawn Eastman is the national bestselling author of Pall in the Family, the first book in the Family Fortune Mystery Series. She lived in Michigan for many years in a house full of animals, unusual people, and laughter. She now lives in Iowa with her husband, son, daughter, and one extremely bossy small dog.

My review: Be Careful What You Witch For By Dawn Eastman
This is the third book of the series but first one I have read. Now I want to go back and read the first two books. I love the wacky characters, the dogs, You never knew what would happen next. There is a lot of humor and some witches and murder.
Clyde Fortune is a female. She has too live in her hometown for a year to keep the house and money she inherited. She is keeping it a secret that she is dating Mac a homicide detective. She is a psychic but does not want to be one. She has a big dog Baxter. Clyde was a policeman in another town when she decided to move back and quit being a cop.
Diana is a witch and is in charge of the fall festival. They have a witch ceremony for part of it out in the woods. When things start going wrong and someone ends up dead. Her best friend is Clyde.
Crystal Haven, Michigan is the setting. It is known for being a town of psychics.
One scene I laughed at was a pan caught on fire and before you know it everyone is covered with foam and sliding around when the fire department comes to Clyde's house. It is a pretty funny scene.
I cared about these characters and want to know what happens next in their lives. While Clyde and her friends are trying to investigate what happened and other suspects. Life happens around them and makes them real that you celebrate with them, laugh with them.
I stayed up till 1:00 am to finish reading Be Careful What You Witch For.
I was given this book to read so I could give a honest review of it and be part of it's blog tour.
