    Til Death was a fun read. The first part of the story I felt was a little long discussing the main character, Lee Barrett as the director at Salem's local TV station WICH-TV and getting prepared to marrying Pete Mondello, a detective sergeant for the Salem police department. The second part was their trip to Pirate Island to visit her Aunt Doris and Uncle Bill who own the Island while on their honeymoon.. When Lee was young her parents died in a plane crash on this island. The reader is taken on Til Death was a fun read.

Before the big day, they must finalize their wedding plans and find a new place to live. Lee must also find a new car since her last one was totaled thanks to her last sleuthing expedition. The day after the wedding and reception, the newlyweds are taking off on a driving tour of Maine and New Hampshire. They plan on visiting Pirate Island which is owned by Lee’s Aunt Doris and Uncle Bill. Doris is the sister of Lee’s deceased father, Jack. It turns out that Lee’s parents died shortly after taking off in their plane from Pirate Island. Her parents’ death was ruled an accident from pilot error. That resolution never set right with Lee. Lee would like to see where her parents spent their last hours and maybe get some much needed closure. ‘Til Death by Carol J. Perry is the twelfth A Witch City Mystery. ‘Til Death can be read as a standalone, but you will be missing Lee’s backstory as well as the journey Lee and Pete have taken to get to the alter. I thought ‘Til Death was easy to read. I did feel that the first sixty percent was a little slow. It is nice to catch up with Aunt Ibby, Lee, Pete, and O’Ryan. A Witch City Mysteries is very much a character driven series. The first part of the book is about finalizing wedding preparations, Lee’s work at WICH-TV, Wanda the meteorologist’s new look, a magician kiddie show, the couple searching for a new home, Aunt Ibby renovating Lee’s old apartment into a bed and breakfast, Lee and Pete moving, and Aunt Ibby’s controversial new tenant. Once the couple depart on their honeymoon and arrive at Pirate Island, the pacing increases. The story also gets a lot more interesting. Pirate Island sounds like a beautiful place to live. The pirate history was fun plus the beautiful old lighthouse. Lee finds an employee on the island who knew her parent’s and was there the day of the crash. The mystery was fun (who doesn’t love a mystery involving pirates and treasure). The suspect list was very small, so it was easy to solve. I enjoyed the reveal which was suspenseful. I like how Lee’s visions and O’Ryan’s special help figure into the whodunit. O’Ryan is one clever cat. I keep hoping Lee will think on her gift as something positive. She seems to despair every time she has a vision. I am hoping the tidbit she learned while on Pirate Island will make a difference. I appreciated the epilogue which nicely wrapped up ‘Til Death. There are three recipes at the end for sweet treats featured in the story. ‘Til Death is a swashbuckling adventure with house hunting, tenant troubles, a cake conundrum, weather woman wardrobe worries, impending nuptials, procuring a new car, pirate plunder, vague visions, and a bewildering bonanza.

Reading Til'Death is like having three mysteries in one book! The wedding of Lee and Pete was so sweet and the questionable new boarder, at Aunt Ibby's new B&B, was perfect. Lastly, Lee and Pete's Pirate Island adventure kept the mystery going...I don't want to say too much but I couldn't put the book down! It was fun to see another side of Lee and Pete as a married couple and O'Ryan is his usual mysterious and charming self along with Aunt Ibby and the Angels. Not only was the mystery great, but the descriptions of coastal Maine were gorgeous! I felt like I was right there on a road trip and sleuthing. After reading the last few sentences, I can't wait for the next book! I received an ARC from NetGalley and the opinions expressed in this review are my own.

    I've loved this unique series since book one. Lee and her Aunt Ibby are two of my favorite characters, and of course, O'Ryan is my favorite cat. In 'Til Death, Lee and her beau Pete finally tie the knot, buy their first home, and honeymoon in Maine, where Lee is finally able to understand her parents death. Not only was this my favorite book, I was so excited to meet Lee's extended family, even if they are quite odd, and possibly murderers.

    The Cozy Review

    I can’t believe that 'Til Death is the 12th book in this series! It seems like just yesterday I was reading book one. Reluctant psychic Lee has been a reporter, a teacher, and now a program director. Fans have been waiting a long time for her and Pete to tie the knot and for the unsolved death of her parents to become a focal point of one of the books in the series. And now… we have both in the same book! What a delight. Lee and Pete tie the know in WICH -TV fashion and set out on their honeymoon I can’t believe that 'Til Death is the 12th book in this series! It seems like just yesterday I was reading book one. Reluctant psychic Lee has been a reporter, a teacher, and now a program director. Fans have been waiting a long time for her and Pete to tie the knot and for the unsolved death of her parents to become a focal point of one of the books in the series. And now… we have both in the same book! What a delight. Lee and Pete tie the know in WICH -TV fashion and set out on their honeymoon to visit Lee’s distant relatives and to see the site where her parents died. Not all unsolved issues can be solved, but Lee is determined to find peace by visiting the site of the crash. It doesn’t take a psychic to figure out that things aren’t right on the little island where her parents died or with her aunt and uncle. At long last, Lee finds the truth about her parents' death, and it isn’t what they thought it was or what they were told. Were her parents murdered? Once Lee realizes that things are not right, she and Pete set out to unravel the unsolved mystery and put things right once and for all. Murder, unsolved mysteries, treasure hunters, psychic visions, and stories of pirates thrust Lee and Pete into a world of secrets, lies, and greed. Most of the cast are suspects of one crime or another, but readers won’t be sure what the suspects are guilty of until the end. Evidence, such as gold coins and jewelry, leads readers on a wild ride across time and distance and changes everything they thought they knew about Lee and her family. Being psychic doesn’t always help when looking for a killer, and for the first time, Lee’s abilities don’t play as big a part in the investigation as readers are used to. Neither does the regular cast of characters, and this is the only reason I didn’t give 'Til Death five stars. I missed Aunt Ibby and O’Ryan, they add fun and intelligence to the series, and a book where they play little part makes for a small amount of disappointment. They are there, just not as prominent as I would have liked. I enjoyed the unsolved mysteries involved in the story, and the fact that Lee didn’t get too upset over her psychic visions was a bonus. Psychic ability and unsolved mysteries help catch a killer with Lee finding peace with the past. This is a reader fans do not want to miss!

    I really enjoy this series, although it has changed over the years. It’s more character focused than it is on the mysteries, which is fine, but this tends to slow the story down and drag on. This one, for example, spends the first half of the book on Lee and Pete’s wedding and it isn’t until the honeymoon where the focus of the story changes. It was nice to get some answers to what happened to Lee’s family but the mystery took too long to show up so I lost interest before the halfway mark.

Although it is book 12, I was able to keep up with characters and events. Protagonist Lee brought her sparkling personality to the proceedings and I also enjoyed the contributions from techie librarian, Aunt Ibby. Her aunt and Lee's clairvoyant cat, O’Ryan really enriched the melting pot, and both Salem and Maine were effectively their own characters, too. Events moved along at a comfortable pace and the mystery itself was great. I had a ball reading this highly amusing and entertaining cozy mystery and I'm already looking forward to catching up with Lee in book #13, as well as grabbing copies of all of the books I've missed, though that will take some time! A great choice of cozy if you enjoy a dose of the paranormal. I received a complimentary copy of this novel at my request from Kensington Books via NetGalley. This review is my own unbiased opinion.

    While this is the twelfth book in this series, it’s still going strong. I thought this one was less of a “fresh” murder mystery, and more of an “cold” case mystery, it was still excellent. Lee and Pete’s wedding is mostly the first part of this book, and it was great to see them finally tie the knot. The second half was their honeymoon and solving an old mystery case.

The diverse investigations from personal tragedies to finding truths were well-developed, but not all answers are ultimately provided. Perry’s writing style is easy to read, descriptive, and includes a variety of entertaining, multi-generational characters, and the inclusion of witch lore, Lee’s own psychic talents, and a clairvoyant feline is not juvenile hocus-pocus; it’s fun and clever. I think newbies to the series can easily start here since enough background and connections are revisited to keep anyone engaged. Disclosure: I received an ARC from Kensington thru NetGalley. My review is voluntary with honest insights and comments.

The author has devised a number of plot twists, a way of bringing a back story to light, tidbits to tease for future stories, exposure that meanness doesn't have to define a total life, and more fully developed some of the side characters. I was intrigued by the very, very subtle (Not sure she knew she was even doing it.) comparison of a man who had accepted responsibility for his actions versus one who had not and had spent his life covering up his wrong-doing. She also highlights how a community 'handles' those who have served their time in prison, but are still judged today for past 'paid for' actions. What I thought would be a light read ended up having points that impinged on more serious issues.

    Carol Perry what a intriguing story. A real page turner. Lee and Pete's wedding day has arrived and everything goes off without a hitch. The only sad part for Lee is that her parents aren't there for her big day. For their honeymoon, the happy couple has decided to head North to Maine and even plan to stop and see her Paternal Aunt. Seeing that her Aunt and Uncle were the last people to see her parents alive, she hopes that it may bring her some closure to hear some stories about her parents and Carol Perry what a intriguing story.

For their honeymoon, the happy couple has decided to head North to Maine and even plan to stop and see her Paternal Aunt. Seeing that her Aunt and Uncle were the last people to see her parents alive, she hopes that it may bring her some closure to hear some stories about her parents and see the place where their plane crashed. When Lee and Pete arrive on Pirate's Island, her uncle greets them, but the welcome is less than warm for a second and they can't help but wonder what is going on. Hearing the stories about pirate treasure, they just think her aunt and uncle are drumming up business to keep their business thriving. But there's that little thing about Lee's visions that seem to be making both of them wonder what's really going on with her Aunt and Uncle. As Lee and Pete ask questions about her parents it seems one of the employees was also there the day her parents died. Can they figure out what happened over thirty years ago, or is Lee reaching and just needs to let the memory of her parents rest in peace after all this time? I highly recommend.

    Unlike most of the others, this was a cold case mystery, albeit the circumstances have been in alluded to in all the other books. More of the story was about the upcoming wedding, where they would live and what vehicle to buy. The actual wedding got very little time.

    I've been reading this series since book one and enjoyed this one as much as all the past books. I was worried they'd start getting stale, but Carol keeps turning out gems! She has great characters and great stories. There's even a little bit of a cliff hanger in this one. I look forward to reading more!

    Lee and Pete have finally gotten married- yay! Now they're on their honeymoon, roadtripping through Maine. One critical stop is Pirate Island where her aunt and uncle live and, more importantly, where Lee's parents died in a plane crash3o years ago. Something's up on the Island- there's a lot of muttering about pirate treasure but Lee's visions tell her there's more. No spoilers from me. This latest in a long running series is fine as a standalone but those who have followed along will likely ta Lee and Pete have finally gotten married- yay!

This latest in a long running series is fine as a standalone but those who have followed along will likely take more from it. It's a cozy, yes, but it's also about family. Thanks to Netgalley for the ARC. A great addition to a favorite series.

    I won this book via the give-away here on Goodreads. Loved it and plan on catching up on the prior 11 Witch City Mysteries.

    An enjoyable visit with Lee Barrett and the TV station crew. I like that not only did Lee and Pete finally get married but also that this book wraps up a lot of Lee’s questions about her parents. A nice change from the usual plot where the main character stumbles over a dead body Although it could be read as a stand alone I’d recommend reading the series in order.

    This series is first rate, with great characters, a paranormal theme and intriguing whodunit. It just gets better and better with each book. I could not put this latest offering down, a great story with a whodunit that kept me guessing. I loved that questions from the past were answered. I strongly recommend you read this series in order and I cannot wait to read the next one. I voluntarily reviewed an Advance Reader Copy of this book.
