Dru Rathmore is going to Hogwarts.
Just kidding. But she is going to Crocus Academy, ~Hogwarts light~ for a week. She’ll be dorming with teenagers, which she’s not thrilled about, but doesn’t have to wear the uniform, which she is thrilled about. And she’s there to learn to ride a broomstick.
But naturally, as soon as she arrives, she stumbles upon a secret Crocus Academy is hiding. Whispers are all around about who killed Savannah Scott. The resident Mean Girls think Ella (the quiet, shy one) did it, Ella thinks they did it, and Headmistress Bevil wishes they’d all shut up about it.
But threatening notes start showing up under Dru’s dorm room door and her handsome Guardian/boyfriend, Harper can only help her via his transformation skills. No boys allowed in this one. Dru enlists Granny and her cat to help solve this mystery, and the escapades they get up to are some of the best in the series.
Broomsticks and Bones by Misty Bane is my favorite in this cozy, witchy mystery series. It takes us out of Blackwood Bay for new adventures and Dru’s skills get to develop more, which usually end up with more high spirited hijinks.
