Her magic, his town, their love… is it enough? Or will a witch just regaining her powers have to choose between saving a cursed town, or giving up everything she’s come to care about?
Legend tells that many years ago, deep in the Idaho mountains, Hiram Ross saved a beautiful woman from a mountain slide and earned her everlasting gratitude. The woman, per the legend, was a witch who blessed the town with peace and prosperity as long as they welcomed faith, magic and love. With this once prosperous town now on its last legs, can a new witch be their salvation?
A wayward witch…
Born to a long line of witches, Miki Lansing renounced her magic to marry a mortal. When he dumps her, her powers return along with a karmic curse. Retreating to a rundown property in Idaho, all Miki wants is to reverse the curse, get her unstable powers under control, and figure out her life. Too bad the townspeople hate her. And too bad her sexy handyman is another troublesome mortal.
A mistrustful mortal…
Gideon Ross knows far too much about magic. His ex-wife was a witch. The real, magic-making, up-to-no-good kind. Now she’s determined to take over his beloved town. And his enchanting new client’s kisses are far too distracting. Then he discovers he’s falling for another witch. Gideon can’t subject the town to the capriciousness of another woman with that much power.
A town in need of magic…
Then Gideon’s ex-wife issues an ultimatum: unless Miki and Gideon are out of town by the full moon, she’ll destroy the town and claim it for her cult. Gideon’s had it with witchy women, and Miki already lost everything once before to a mortal. But if they’re to save the town, they’ll need a little faith, a lot of love, and a very special kind of magic.
When I hear the name Tawny Weber the first thing that comes to mind is her Uniformly Hot Seals series, so you can imagine my surprise and ultimate delight when I discovered she also writes in the paranormal genre. I was granted the privilege of receiving a complimentary copy in exchange for an honest review. I knew that she is a good author, but I was not sure what to expect from her branching out into this genre. After completing There’s A New Witch in Town I knew beyond a reasonable doubt that Tawny Weber is a very talented writer.
This is an awesome read. The characters were very interesting and entertaining. My favourite is Mikaela Davenport. She is a witch who had abdicated her powers when she married a mortal. Her marriage, however, turned out to be a disaster. Perry, her wimp of a husband dumped her on her birthday. After this disastrous event we saw Mikaela regaining her life as a witch. There were some glitches along the way which led some very humorous moments.
She is an honest, strong and determined woman. She is not the type to wallow in self pity. Despite having this tough exterior, she is very vulnerable and is afraid to give her heart to yet another mortal. As the story progresses, readers will experience her growth. She fully embraces her powers and she overcame her fears. In the process, she discovers a few things about herself that she has come to accept. This enabled her to embrace all that the town of Rossdale had to offer.
Overall, I found this to be an exciting read. I enjoyed every moment from beginning to end. It had me laughing at every page turn. There’s A New Witch in Town shows how powerful love combined with faith and little magic can be. It helped the residents of Rossadale to rightfully claim back what was theirs.
If you enjoy tales about witches that has romance, suspense and humor then you will love There’s A New Witch in Town. So do yourself a favour and get a copy it will be worth it.
