Set in Old Salem around the Halloween season, this charming romantic comedy features a wacky, if good-hearted, self-proclaimed witch and her upstairs neighbor, a reformed bad boy trying to be a responsible father to his adorable four-year-old son, Shane. Needing a reliable baby sitter, Logan Kilgarven agrees to an exchange: he will find a job for Melody at the local TV station, where he is a producer, and she will be on call to baby sit Shane as needed. Melody, however, spurns his offer of a secretarial position, countering with a bid for a cooking show. The catch? Melody can't cook. At all. But with a combination of sex appeal and well-developed marketing skills, she sells the station owner on the concept, and several spicy encounters in elevators and on counters and desktops are the inevitable result. With both of them fighting their feelings, and several matchmakers as well as one marplot stirring the cauldron, Blair has crafted a fun and sexy romp. Lynne Welch

Ms. Seabright certainly bewitched me with her upbeat cheerfulness and loving heart. Melody only wants a job to prove she can take care of herself, and to show her Father, that he can be proud of her.
Logan Kilgarvin only wants to prove to himself and his young son, Shane, that he can be a good Father and provider.
The sky is alight with the sparks between these two when they meet. Exploding chickens aside, this book was a joy to read and I laughed myself silly.
I look forward to reading the next in the series.
Is she a godo witch or a bad witch?
With a flip of her raven black hair, a flash of her topaz eyes and a shake of a stick, rumored witch Melody Seabright has cast a spell on single dad Logan Kilgarven. What else can explain what's happening to him? Logan, a television producer, can't seem to concentrate on anything since he met his enchanting new neighbor...
Logan hopes she is very bad.
When Logan agrees to help Melody find a job at his TV station, he never expects the culinary-challenged siren to land her own cooking show. Her charisma keeps things buggling on the set and behind the scenes, things are starting to steam up between them. Logan knows he can't resist her charms - but is there more to the attractio nthan the here and now? If only he had a crystal ball to show him...
Review: While overall an entertaining read, this book definitely had ups and downs. This author's characters are all extraordinarly quirky, and this book was actually less so than most. There was also a fair amount of steam factor. Melody was a mostly charming heroine whose emotional challenges were enjoyable and who grew throughout the story. Logan well, sometimes you like him, sometimes you don't. There's an adorable child, interfering parents and charming friends, all at play. The premise, of a culinarily challenged woman running a cooking show, was pretty entertaining with some hilarious scenarios and the secondary cast of characters where at times more interesting than the main. This is the first book in a trilogy, and while not necessary to ready any of the others, there is some set up for Melody's friends' stories here.
One element, the name is a bit misleading. While some of the other books in this series do touch of "witchcraft," the extent here is a joking spell, a location of Salem, MA and the name and theme of Melody's cooking show.
This is not my regular genre, but I picked it up to get my mind off of life for a while and it did just that.
This was written as a light, fluffy romance, and that is what it is. If you want something deeper, don't expect it out of a book titled "Kitchen Witch", with a cartoon drawing on the cover. Actually, for what it is it had a lot of depth.
I found the charaters very likeable, the dialog snappy and fun, the premise unbelieveable yet entertaining. I would recommend this book for a light, fun read.
My only complaint was the sex. Ms. Blair, in trying not to be overly explicit in her sex scenes, manages to just confuse the reader. several times I was not sure if they actually had sex at all! Also, and beleive me I am no prude, I felt the sex began distracting from the story towards the middle. I cared more about the charaters and what they were doing and got a little irritated when once again the flow of the story was paused for more sex.
All in all, I would recommend this book, as long as you are not looking for a great work of literature.
There was no magic or witchcraft of any kind in this book exept for a few chintzy rhymes that Melody pulls out on her show. You never find out if she's actually a witch or if such a thing exists in this context.
I felt like half the book was just Logan thinking bout how turned on he was. Like, he was hard constantly!
There was no real development of the feelings between the two characters. It was like sex, then they both act ridiculous over how they can't be together because they're SO different. Even though, they aren't. It waxes on about how much baggage both characters have yet you don't really learn much about it.
The little boy so unrealistic for a four year old that it's laughable.
The only positive thing I actually have to say for this book is that it didn't drag in goblins, and fairies, and vampires, and werewolves, and god knows what else like so many paranormal romances.
