The 7th Wonder

The Good Witch's Wonder (2014)

Times are changing for Cassie Nightingale (Catherine Bell) and her husband Jake as the kids are growing up and the house is starting to feel empty whilst having served her term as mayor she has handed the power seat over to Martha (Catherine Disher). But when stepson Brandon's (Matthew Knight) wedding to Tara (Ashley Leggat) is going to have to be cancelled because of work Cassie sets about arranging an earlier wedding for them so they don't have to miss out. And then there is Audrey (Rachel Wilson), a new arrival in town who Cassie employs at her store. But when some of the donations for the new mayor's fund raising auction goes missing the finger of suspicion points to Audrey leading to Cassie and Jake trying to discover the truth of what is going on.

For many the word typical would be a put down but in many ways it is a compliment when it comes to "The Good Witch's Wonder", the 7th movie in the franchise and possibly the last due to it becoming a TV series. It is a compliment because "The Good Witch's Wonder" delivers everything that the series has been built upon from Cassie using her magic to give things a gentle nudge in the right direction, the evolving family dramas as the children grow up plus of course there is the mystery of a stranger coming to town and some trouble which seems to coincide with it. About the only thing which isn't typical is that Catherine Bell's hair has had a cut which to be honest I preferred her with the longer hair.

But because "The Good Witch's Wonder" sticks to what it has always done it is like a comforting hug from that aunt you get to see once a year and it is such a warm embrace. From the subplots surrounding the family growing up to George feeling like he can't keep up with the changing times it is everything which you expect and it gets it right again with the right tone, the right amount of soft drama and of course the right amount of comedy.

What this all boils down to is that "The Good Witch's Wonder" is a solid entry in this series of movies by just keeping it simple and sticking to the formula which has worked well throughout the series but keeps the energy up which is important so that it doesn't become tedious.
