The Wiccan Witch of the Midwest (A Samuel Roberts Thriller Book 4) - Scott A. Lerner

The Wiccan Witch of the Midwest is a book filled with mystery and humor at the same time. The theme is witchcraft, a woman who is a fortuneteller is being charged with practicing witchcraft and murdering children in the community that a coven lives in. It is against the practice of the witches to do harm to others. Practicing bad magic is a no no. So along comes Sam Roberts, a man who is not only a lawyer but has had experience getting rid of evil and with his friend Bob. Bob introduced Sam to Bridget, the witch, but he is not sure of her. Sam falls in love with Bridget after only a short time. 


Bridget's great great aunt was the founder of the village that the coven resides in and is alongside an Amish community. Bridget is accused of murdering a couple Amish children and Sam and Bob are enlisted as advocates for Bridget. The law works different in a coven, pretty much the same as in Salem in the 1600's if Bridget is found guilty, she will be burned at the stake. 


This novel delves a bit into the practices and prejudices of witchcraft, the good and the evil aspects of it. Is Bridget guilty of the crimes she is being accused of? Will Sam and Bob be able to prove she is innocent or is she guilty? You will be surprised at what transpires as Sam and Bob investigate the case. Equally suspenseful and humorous, The Wiccan Witch of the Midwest will delight the reader. I enjoyed the story, this is the first I have read by this author and I was pleasantly surprised.
