Yes, there are witches but this is a story about love, luck, and family. The smooth blending of technology and witchcraft works so well, I was looking for the spellcode in my own machine before the book was over.
The cast of characters from Lauren - reluctant witch and ace real estate broker - to Jamie and Nat to the herd of kids and witchlings stole my heart and made me smile.
If you like your contemporary fantasy with just a touch of magic, an off center love story, and gorgeously developed characters, you should grab a sample of this one faster than you can say "So mote it be."
I was looking for a good weekend read, and boy this novel sure fit the bill. This is a story of a modern day witch who doesn't have any clue that she possesses any type of special powers let alone actually being a witch. With a tad bit of intervention by some very special people Lauren will learn a lot more about herself and a new appreciation of who she is really supposed to be. Debora Geary did a wonderful job introducing the characters for this series, each person has an important roll and the blue prints for the tale are laid out in such a way that you become completely invested in all the characters and their lives. I absolutely fell in love with Aervyn the 4 yr old up and coming witch and can not wait to see how he grows up in the series. There is laughter and tears and of course some romance that comes from an unexpected couple. I can not wait to read the next installment! This E-Book was a unexpected gem and was very reasonably priced. I am so glad I took a chance and bought it. If you are looking for a great story, with characters that you fall in love with, LOOK no further, as this is just that book! My only real complaints are that the next book in the series isn't out yet, and there could have been a bit more bulk to this book so I could have kept reading a little longer. I gave this 5 stars because it was everything I was looking for to read.
The entire book is syrupy sweet to the point of being nauseating (at least for me). None of the characters have any personality flaws, everyone loves each other and gets along fantastically, and they're all super successful and have plenty of money. There are no obstacles in the barely-there plot, so the book just hums along on a road to nowhere. I kept waiting for something, *anything* to happen, but it doesn't. I won't spoil the ending, but of course it just ends with even more happiness, sweetness, and love.
I tried to give the author the benefit of the doubt, so I thought this book may just be setting up a really good story for the next book, but then the next book in the series covers some other characters, so now I'm baffled.
The book also contains numerous sections where you have to read dialog from a witch chat room, which just magnifies the fact that all the characters sound the same no matter who is speaking, and the chats are boring and pointless.
I feel bad giving such a negative review, but I honestly don't understand why this book is so highly rated. I guess if you want a non stop happy train this is the book for you, but if you like plot and character development, I'd steer clear of this one.
The characters were largely flat. Most of the "conversations" sounded like a soliloquy split between two people. This was worse at the beginning, and did get a bit better by the end. It gives me some hope for upcoming novels, clearly the author is capable of improving, and as she got further into the story they characters found their own voices more. I can only hope that in future novels that means they are capable of some interesting disagreements and different points of view.
In the end it was a very cute introduction to a world that That made me sad, because I really enjoyed the world setting. Of course, the majority of the book read more like "A Witch lover's guide to the Modern World" than an actual novel. The author clearly loves her world and wants to share it. It is my hope that she finds a real story to share it in.
