Pepper finds herself in need of a handyman and conveniently Lathan is there. He is a soldier turned handy man with a past. He's a hero about to be transformed by his passion but who needs to grow, forgive and forget one monumental incident of his past. The chemistry between the characters sizzles. Yes, some of the scenes seem staged and perhaps a little less believable but they do add to the story.
There are some twists and turns with elements of mystery but this really is a story about magic, power, love and forgiveness that takes you from Maine to Alaska. A Witch’s Journey was an enjoyable read and I hope to see more tales from this author.
Pepper McKay finds herself in possession of property she inherited up in the charming setting of Lobster Cove. Her journey is not only a physical relocation, however, for she will work for her dream of setting up an animal rescue service and battle some foes along the way. And oh yes, she has powers...a modern day McKay witch. Enter steamy Lathan, the handy man with a past who simply must become everyone's next book boyfriend. He's a hero about to be transformed by his passion, and as I read about him, I realized just how perfect a match he and Pepper were.
The chemistry between the characters sizzles right off the page, and the individual journeys they undertake is a heady ride for the reader as well. A Witch's Journey was one of those books that made me wish I could hop in the car and visit the setting right then and there--and I was sorry to leave the characters behind at the end. I hope to see more tales from this author--and in Lobster Cove!
The story opens with Pepper, a witch, in a dire situation. She’s used magic openly (in Salem, of all places) to protect her place of work, an animal rehab shelter, from a storm, and now she’s out of a job and being thrown out of her apartment. She has no place to go, and no plans. So far, so good.
Then she receives a summons to a family solicitor, to be told she’s inherited an estate and a large amount of money – good timing or what?
Upon arriving at said property, she meets hot handyman, Lathan, former Navy Seal who just happens to be a wolf shifter. Okay, right now he can’t shift due to injuries sustained, but who cares? He’s gorgeous, amenable and available.
So begins the delightful tale of Pepper setting up her own animal rescue and rehab centre with a lot of physical help from the delectable Lathan. They are engaging characters, beautifully depicted and easy to root for.
But therein also lies the problem at the root of this novel (for me) – it has no real plot. Yes, there is a story. Yes, things happen. But conflict? No.
Pepper and Lathan get along just fine, moving steadily from interested to attached to committed with nary a ripple of a problem along the way. Yes, they both have personal issues to come to terms with, and they talk and think about how things could go wrong, but they never do!
There are vague threats to the rehab centre, and a slightly crazy guy who makes a couple of half-hearted physical assaults, but turns out he’s being controlled by the real ‘bad guy’, who is so ineffectual he makes so little impact on the story I can’t even remember his name. I did feel the poor patsy was rather badly dealt with – it wasn’t his fault he was acting out of character, and yet no one seemed at all concerned about the consequences to his life.
There are a couple of recurring points that impart unease – a window that seems to open itself, and a door that creaks ominously – both of which I was truly expecting to play critical roles in the final scenes, but no, they never led anywhere.
In fact, Pepper sums up the ending extremely well herself, when she says: “Well, that was an anticlimactic ending to the evening.”
Basically in this book, nothing goes wrong. No conflict, no danger – lots of talking about it, but it never comes to anything.
So if you are looking for a sweet, easy read, with lovely characters, decent writing, a few sex scenes, some jaunts around beautiful places, and lots of descriptions of yummy food, then this is a book for you.
If, on the other hand, you want action, things going awry, characters thrown into impossible situations, and above all, conflict, then I suggest you leave this one off your reading list.
I received a free copy of this book for a blog tour – all thoughts are my own.
