The first in a new paranormal mystery series by USA Today bestselling author Gretchen Galway. Is her magic strong enough to stop a killer? On her first assignment as a demon-hunting witch, Alma was unable to kill. Now broke and unemployed at twenty-six, she lives in Silverpool, a remote town in a redwood forest north of San Francisco, where she sells magic-infused jewelry and tries to live a drama-free life. When fairies draw her to the dead body of her ex-boyfriend, she must defend herself and the hidden power in Silverpool from an influx of supernatural trouble. The only way to make peaceand stay aliveis to find the killer. Drawing upon years of formal magical training shed rather forget, and using other abilities shed like to keep secret, Alma goes up against bloodthirsty fae, a dangerously charming demon, her infamous father, and other ambitious witches with agendas of their own. This time, an inability to kill might be not just the end of her job, but of her life......

Dead Witch on a Bridge Reviews
A heroine that believes herself weak and flawed, a forest filled with angry fairies and a powerful witch that knew how to live long but instead is dead in middle of the road. Wait a minute….we are not in Gretchen Galway’s San Francisco anymore!
WOW - not only is this book a tremendous start to a new series, but it is an excellent switch of genres for an author known for her quirky, delightful contemporary romances. Ms. Galway now takes the reader to a small town in Sonoma that is filled with supe ...more

In an urban fantasy world that feels comfortingly familiar to a fan of Seanan McGuire and Patricia Briggs, Alma, a witch, becomes involved in tangled plots among witches, fae, and demons when the local Protector goes missing. The Protector, Tristan, is a promiscuous, powerful witch who was responsible for keeping fae, witches, and demons in balance. At first, he seems to have been killed without reason, but of course there was one.

I enjoyed this book. It's nicely paced so there are any slow spots , I enjoyed learning about Alma and her magic. I really enjoyed her interaction with Random and I loved the ending. #DeadWitchOnABridge #NetGalley
Thanks to NetGalley for access to this fun fantasy/mystery. Alma, the main character, is a witch who has settled in the small CA town of Silverpool after being discharged from the Protectorate (an organization that protects humans and fae from demons) for being unable/unwilling to kill her assigned demon. On the night Silverpool’s assigned protector Tristan is murdered, a valuable amulet also goes missing. Alma’s father, the infamous teleporting thief Malcolm Bellrose, is suspected of the theft ...more
I really enjoyed this book. It’s got a great cast of characters, some nice world building and good conflicts. Definite recommend.
I received a copy of this book from the publisher in exchange for an honest review. I was not paid for this review.
Alma is a failed demon-hunting witch, due to her unwillingness to hurt another being. When a friend, who was protecting the city from evil forces, is murdered, Alma worries for the safety of her town. When she is then told a magical item was stolen and she and her criminal father are under suspicion, it’s in her best interests to find out what really happened. Alma has to draw on all the magic within her to help save herself and her city from the evil. Even if it means hurting another.

As a fan of paranormal stories, I was quickly hooked on this one. Alma is a witch that didn’t quite make the cut as a agent in the Protectorate. But doesn’t mean she’s without skills. And this first in a new series gives you a taste of that.
I did receive an ARC of this book in exchange for my honest review.
I am a Gretchen Galway fan, having read and enjoyed her earlier novels. Dead Witch on a Bridge has the great character development I’ve come to expect. I really liked Alma. Members of the Fae were introduced and developed well with a fair amount of education mixed in. This was a delightful read with quick pacing. A great mystery with Alma at the center regaining belief in herself and her power. I can’t wait for the next book!
