About the Author
Menna van Praag was born in Cambridge, England, and studied modern history at Oxford University. Her first work of fiction, Men, Money, and Chocolate—an autobiographical tale about a waitress who aspires to be a writer—has been translated into twenty-six languages. Her first novel, The House at the End of Hope Street, was inspired by an idea van Praag had to set up a house for female artists to give them a year to fulfill their artistic ambitions. She is also the author of The Dress Shop of Dreams.

The Witches of Cambridge was a charming novel. I just sat down and read it straight through (I was not pleasant when interrupted). The only thing that bothered me were the abrupt transitions between scenes (not chapters). It led to some confusion at first when one minute you are with Kat and then the next sentence Noa. Otherwise, I was riveted to the pages of this book. I give The Witches of Cambridge 5 out of 5 stars. I love Menna Van Praag’s writing style (I have read all of her books). It is so easy to read and entrancing! I cannot wait for Menna Van Praag’s next novel.
I received a complimentary copy of The Witches of Cambridge in exchange for an honest review.
The book started out rather slowly, and I had difficulty getting into it. The pace picked up as the book progressed, but really never did become action/event packed enough to hold my interest completely. Most of the key players also tended to make less than optimal choices as they progressed along in their lives, which made it somewhat difficult for me to understand, identify with or commensurate with when things went badly or not as planned/wanted. I also expected a more important yet light-hearted approach to their paranormal powers. The book did spend some time on and dealing with these, but they really were not the main focus. In short, the story was okay, just not great. If you enjoy reading about how lives intersect and people interact, with a bit of romance and paranormal thrown in, this is a good book for you. However, it is not really action packed and can move along slowly. I received this from NetGalley to read and provide an honest review.
