    The third book in the fantasy mystery series. About a year ago, Ella’s dad was murdered and she found out that she’s a mage. Her father’s death is still a mystery but she doesn’t have any clues about who did it. She doesn’t have any memories of her mom. She also doesn’t know why her dad kept her a secret from everyone in the magical community or why he didn’t tell her that she’s a mage. Her dad’s old friends Badger and Bear agreed to train her. About six months ago, Ella declared herself a Monza, The third book in the fantasy mystery series. About a year ago, Ella’s dad was murdered and she found out that she’s a mage. Her father’s death is still a mystery but she doesn’t have any clues about who did it. She doesn’t have any memories of her mom. She also doesn’t know why her dad kept her a secret from everyone in the magical community or why he didn’t tell her that she’s a mage. Her dad’s old friends Badger and Bear agreed to train her. About six months ago, Ella declared herself a Monza, a follower of “old way” who must stay celibate. She did it to get out of the clutches of mage law. She had, and still has, feelings for handsome, if aloof and unfriendly, security consultant Vin. For six months, Ella has been training or rather burying all her feelings in training. She’s also pushed her best friend Vanessa to train with her. But now Vanessa is putting her foot down. Her mother who is Ella’s teacher, is away for a week. Ella has pushed them to go through all the exercises in just couple of days and Vanessa wants to stop doing them. Their friend Natasha comes to Ella’s loft. Natasha has her own comedy show in on the casinos. Two of the women working in her show have left and she needs help. Vanessa jumps at the chance but Ella hesitates. She wants to keep practicing. After Vanessa and Natasha leave, Ella’s tutor Bear stops by. Apparently, the girls from Natasha’s show haven’t left: they’re dead from drug overdose. Bear wants Ella to investigate. Ella agrees and a job at the comedy show is a great way to go undercover. However, she decides to keep the investigation secret even from Vanessa. This is a more serious entry in the series. While we still get wild antics from Patagonia, Ella’s huge black familiar cat, there aren’t many other jokes or humor, especially compared to the previous book which was set in a hilarious cheese convention. Ella investigates the overdose with a drug which seems to affect only mages. Also, a handsome new love interest appears. The mystery around Ella’s dad and childhood deepens, though. While I didn’t enjoy the plot as much as in the previous book, I did enjoy the characters and quite a lot of other things, like the descriptions of Ella performing on the comedy show. She thought it would be just a small thing but it’s really not and panicked at first. Vin doesn’t appear much which is good because I can barely stand him. Natasha is a great character and I’d like to see more of her.

And, who should she meet when she enters the new workspace but violet-eyed Thomas who seems to believer that the Monza celibacy thing can be worked around…not bothered at all…not like Vin was. And, Vin is in a relationship with Tiffany which is not good news, either. So, with a murder to solve, people being given a drug that can kill, a show to put on, magic to use, new clues to the loss of her uncle and father and a whole lot more going on this was definitely a fun new addition to a series I thoroughly enjoy. I do hope that Elle finds a way to overcome the Monza celibacy thing so she can find a “true love” at some point in the future. Thank you to the author for the ARC – This is my honest review. 4.5 Stars

Ella has so many secrets that she doesn't know who to trust, until she talks to a seer and comes to a conclusion that she can trust the people that took her in. 4.5 stars I love how Nikki can bring the magic alive in these books.

    This is such a fun series and this new addition is one of the best so far. The storyline is engaging and the characters are unique and qwirky. Since Ella has declared herself a Monza she has been trying full time, actually more than full time. So when Valerie and Natasha ask her to help out in Natasha’s act at a ‘for mage only’ casino she turns them down. Not long after, Bear asks her to go undercover to investigate some suspicious deaths at that same casino.

You can read this story on its own--all the relevant parts are contained within and it is a doozy of a good mystery--but the overall story arc has its own fascination and for that there is a bit of a cliffhanger, tantalizing you to read the next volume. I will! I will!

    It's OK for a quick read. It's a continuing story, so best to read the books in the series in order. There's magic, a mystery, and a wonderful cat familiar who is basically ornery. Not long at all, so good for a quick read. But I wanted more. Nothing much of the Heroines past was revealed. The romance has stagnated. The dialogue frequently seemed forced. The pacing was irregular, which caused me to skim over tedious scenes. It wasn't a bad read, but I'm not sure if I'll continue the series. It's OK for a quick read.

    Slow start, interesting ending. Ella is learning more about her powers and more advanced spells. Mystery surrounds her because of gaps in her memories of her past. Her emerging ability to use her powers and spells she is learning helps her to search out clues for cases. The Casino Mysteries are best read in order because of the build-up of facts and characters are referred to in each successive story. Nice cozy witch mystery reads.

    This third entry in Nikki Haverstock’s Casino Witch Mysteries may cast a spell over you…perhaps you will find yourself staying up late to finish reading it! Ella’s magic has grown more powerful and she’s exercising those powers by saving lives and finding a killer. I am enjoying this series, though we are left with more questions than answers, which I look forward to seeing resolved in future editions. I received this book free and chose to make a voluntary, unbiased review.

    No Business Like Mage Business What a great series and this book made me want the next one quickly! The plot is well paced with tension at the just right time. The characters are growing stronger and are very likable. Ella has been training her magic and strength harder than needed so goes through a valuable respite. Her skills and endurance training are needed as she investigates the overdose deaths of several women.

    A good mystery I enjoy reading about Ella and her making mistakes but growing in her magic and confidence. Her friendships are growing even amidst some mistakes and I can’t wait to read what mystery she solves next. The romance part is lacking and I don’t care for men who are serial daters and think they are all that. Ella seems to attract them though. Vin is just ugh along with Tiffany, seriously, they being nothing to the series.

    Excellent Ella and Vanessa are awesome, and best friends, they can be hysterical and they can fight. But when it comes to who you need when things get bad they totally have each other. When Ella tries to solve murders without Vanessa she learns that having her best friend with her is always better! This book was very good, a few parts that mad me cry a little, hoping those get fixed in the next book!

How her dad died and also what happend to vin and vanessa's dad hoping all will be reveled in the next book as we are getting closer.

    Starting with the third book in the series was not a great idea. It took me a long time to figure out the world and the character, not all the information seemed relevant to this story, and there seemed to be many references to previous events. Once I got past that, the story moved quickly and I was drawn into the events and main character. Now I want to know what comes next, and what came before.

    Love these. I love these. Each book makes me want more. Bad part is having to wait for next. Like the new character addition and hopefully will see more of him and hopefully he turns out to be a good guy. Some more movement in the story line. Wish more than we got but liked the link to the first book. Will be excited for the next book to arrive.

    Fun mystery When mages start suddenly overdosing on Legacy, a new drug that drains their magic, Ella is called in to assist the investigation. I enjoyed this altered reality where drinks are potions and comedy is about magic. The light romance is a bit annoying.

    Revenge served hot Turn him down for a date and die. Wow. I didn't see that coming and he was everywhere. I can't wait to see where it goes with Ella and her new interest.

    Book 3 The stories are getting better and better as the characters and background gets filled. So many times a series slows or gets redundant but this story is getting better and better. No happily ever after, but several good strong female protagonists. I love it.

    Another great story dealing with casinos, investigations, relationships, and magic. The plot and the characters meld seamlessly with the casino atmosphere and the magic just enhances the effect.

    This book is starting to pull together some of the loose ends from the first book. The Legacy drug is weaving through out the books and now answers some questions but not all.
