(Summary via Goodreads)

I am a huge fan of paranormal books and when I was given the opportunity to read Second Hand Murder I jumped at it. This is the first book in a new series and I love love loved it! This series is going to be flying off the shelves. It has everything you could ever want in a paranormal series, a cat, a town known for things that go bump in the night and of course a witch. All of this is just in book one.

Cassie and her mom Julia run a second hand store in Bandit Hills, Tennessee where strange is normal. The saying is "That's Bandit Hills for ya" when anything unexplainable happens. Cassie gets a lot of boxes dropped off every morning for her to go through that people discard and she tries to give them new life in her store. 

She gets the surprise of a life time when she opens an old shoe box and finds a Voodoo doll and a picture. Strange huh? Nay not for Bandit Hill. This does make curious Cassie want to know more about it. Why would anyone give this doll to her and who is in the picture? Well Julia knows who the young woman is because she was in the obituaries a few weeks ago! What??? Could Voodoo be real? The young woman apparently just stopped living with no reason noted on her coroners report. 

With the help of her good friend Dash, her mom, her mom's friend Marla(a physic???) and a host of other amazing characters they search for who or what killed this young woman. 

This book had me on the edge of my seat and laughing out loud all at the same time. The characters are great and it is very well written. I can't wait to see where this great new series goes next.
