Magic and Other Misdemeanors by Michael Buckley

This is #5 in the Sisters Grimm series. I started this series about year and a half ago but I haven't read them straight through. I just pick one up when I don't have anything else to read, or when I have been reading something heavy and need a reading snack. The premise of the series is that there are two girls who are the descendants of the Brothers Grimm, the fairy tale writers. In this world the fairy tales are all real, and the Grimm sisters live in a town with the "Ever Afters," fairy tale characters who are immortal. The Grimm sisters and their grandmother are detectives, and solve mysteries related to the Ever Afters. In this installment someone has stolen three magical items from three different witches and is using them to create disturbances in the fabric of time. The sisters have to find out who is causing the disturbances and reverse their terrible effects. This installment is fun because the reader starts to see a romance the author has hinted might happen in the last few books. One of my favorite parts was when Cinderella, Sleeping Beauty, and Rapunzel, all ex-wives of Prince William Charming, get together and give counseling to Snow White, Charming's current love interest. (304 p)
