On advice from Amazon, and based on their emailed reply I can say – “My review is given voluntarily and the Author/publisher does not require a review in exchange for the book, or attempt to influence my review.”
I would like to thank Kensington Books for providing me with a free ARC of this book, via Netgalley, in exchange for an open and honest review.
Okay, I will start by saying I read this a few months ago… I know, I know, I have been a slack reviewer this year! Secondly, this is a midway through a series book - and I’ve not read the first books in this series. This is usually a big no no for me – I have a real dislike for starting into a series midway. But I have to say it wasn’t such an issue – most of the time.
I found the main character Lee, her Aunt and cat very likable. This, and the narrative, really drew me into enjoying ‘Grave Errors’ quickly and, by the time I realised this was a mid-series book, I didn’t care! I was enjoying it too much.
So, yes, Ms Perry’s excellent writing saved me and made me continue. The characters, the plot, the pace – great!
My only slight quibble was that Lee seemed to need to tell her life story and what her investigations had discovered so far to EVERYONE she met. Okay, I can understand telling her Aunt, boyfriend and maybe her students… but she seems to tell anyone who makes eye contact with her.
The only other, more important, issue is - being a mid-series book - I want to read the earlier books as I feel like I’m currently missing out on some really good tales!
Meaning it’s time to add the first lot of ‘A Witch City Mystery’ to my list of want to read. Definitely an enjoyable read.
Would I recommend this book to others?
Yes I would. But I really would recommend people read the first books in this series first… But, can honestly say it is just as enjoyable as a standalone read.
Would I buy this book for myself?
Maybe. Let me read the first books in this series first and I will get back to you. ;-) Perhaps her “tell all to anyone” character is explained in the earlier books… or it is a trait I will grow to tolerate.
In summary: Want a modern day cosy crime with a touch of the supernatural? This is the book for you.
For residents of Salem, Massachusetts, the day after Halloween brings empty candy wrappers, sagging pumpkins, and a community-wide identity crisis. That is, until Lee Barrett’s TV production class suggests extending the spooky season with the traditional Mexican celebration Dia de Los Muertos. But when the students discover not all of Salem’s dead are resting in peace, the post-October blues don’t seem so bad after all . . .
A fantastic read. Loved the story and the plot. I love these cozy reads. 5*.

If you are a fan of this series, you should enjoy this book. It features all the usual characters (Lee, Pete, Aunt Ibby, River, O'Ryan) and an interesting mystery with more than one dead body and several suspects. Perry's version of Salem is quaint and a nice place for tourists and locals alike.
I recommend starting with the first book in this series if you can, but readers who jump into the series with this book shouldn't have any problems understanding the characters and their relationships with each other. Readers should be fans of witches, psychics, ghosts and magical visions in order to enjoy the series.
