Review: Witches Protection Program by Michael Phillip Cash

I love fictional witchcraft stories (not as much as I love historical accounts of "witchcraft"). So, I was happy to be given the opportunity to review this novel.
   In this book, Wes Rockville is a former law enforcement agent who recently gained black marks on his record. In an effort to redeem himself, he takes the reassignment of the
Witches Protection Program, which is a 232-year-old secret government organization. There, he is given the task of uncovering a world domination scheme by a cosmetics company while acting as bodyguard to the heiress of the company.
   First, let me say: world domination by a cosmetics company? That sounds rather fantastical and campy. It takes me back to the 1980s when it seemed Aqua Net was infiltrating every person's home. And the name of the heiress is Morgan Pendragon. That name sounds very familiar to me . . . oh yes, King Arthur! No matter how hard I tried to erase the image of the legendary Morgan, I could not. I kept seeing a sorceress in distress rather than an attractive heiress.
   Now, that being said, while this book does have faults, I got a guilty pleasure from reading it. Cash sets a nice pace and manages to instill a desire to read more, even though you may already know what is about to happen. It's a nice Sunday afternoon read.
Full disclosure: I was sent this book free of charge in exchange for an honest and unbiased review.
