Book Review - Witches Incorporated

It's also Gerald's first official government assignment. He's hunting down a deadly saboteur, and time is quickly running out. Old enemies and new combine forces to thwart him. Once again, innocent lives are on the line. He needs his friends. He can't do this alone. But Princess Melissande and Reg have troubles of their own. With the help of Monk Markham's brilliant, beautiful sister, they've opened a one-stop-shop witching locum agency, where magical problems are solved for a price. Problem is, the girls are struggling to keep the business afloat. Things are looking grim for Witches Incorporated - and that's before they accidentally cross paths with Gerald's saboteur. Suddenly everybody's lives are on the line and Gerald realises, too late, that there's a reason government agents aren't supposed to have friends ...

My Review
After struggling with Book 1 in the series, i was dubious about reading this book, but i have to say i was pleasantly surprised. This book is better paced and flowed well. I found the story a lot more interesting and found the characters blended better together. 
Gerald is on his first job as a 'Janitor' the clean up squad for Wizards, he's supposed to observe and try to solve the case without getting too involved. However being Gerald he gets stuck straight in, and to complicate matters, Melissande, Reg and Bibbie turn up in the same factory on their own case, and
there paths can't help but cross. Full of danger, mystery and skulduggery, this book hooked my attention and wouldn't let go. I finished this book fairly quickly as i couldn't put it down. I spent a lot of the book trying to solve the cases along with the characters, but could never make a decision, and the end result surprised me. It's almost as if book 1 was a warm up writing, and she has now found her rhythm. I'm even looking forward to reading book 3.

My Rating
I would give this book 7/10, well written and paced, worth a read.
