How to Hang a Witch

Finished How to Hang a Witch by Adriana Mather. I received a copy from the publisher for review. 

This is a smart novel about the Salem witch trials set in present day Salem. The twist: the main character is a descendant of Cotton Mather, one of the villains in said trials (as is the author herself). 

That’s not the only twist, of course, but it’s the least spoilery one. 
I feel like there’s this huge fascination with the trials, and we feel like that could never happen again…except it totally could. We have a major tendency to rush to judgment and while we may not literally kill people for their (real or imagined) transgressions, we certainly can metaphorically do it. 
This was just an incredibly fun read and I hope there are more thrillers to come.
