Johnson's magical world is so vividly imagined that you'll be tempted to believe in witches and spells yourself. In 2017 she won Paranormal Romantic Novel of the Year from the Romantic Novelists’ Association with her novel Max Seventeen . The twist was a bit confusing, cuz now I don't really get what Josh's relation is with whatever the bad guy's name was, since it seems their blood relatives of some sort, and also the whole winter spell became confusing because Essie's done it her whole life, but also she's the one that started the whole thing to protect witches and well, everyone else, from this witch hunter that turned evil.It was great watching their relationship unfold while at the same time battling this unknown evil entity. At about p260 or something, the conflict had been resolved, the couple had gotten together and I was like oh, this would be a good place to end it. All Essie ever wanted was to have a normal life but in the end she found herself drawn back to Beldam House because she just can’t stop her witchiness (although the ability to instantly chill wine is pretty awesome, even she has to admit). Initially, I thought this book was a mash-up between The House in the Cerulean Sea (with the house being its own character) and the Hex Ex (with the exes and the romance). Essie decides to keep Josh at broomstick’s length but when Josh’s very pregnant step sister moves to live with him and hires Blessing as her midwife, two families get a little closer.

The only reason I didn't was because I wanted to finish it, only to be able to vent my utter dislike of this book in this review. All he did was inherit a property and be confused as to why it looked like rent hadn’t been paid for three hundred years. Other witches were a nice touch and even though the magical world was chaotic it had its charm and it was a perfect match for Essie’s temperament. I loved that the setting was a rural British village and definitely served as a bit of a palate cleanser to all the small town, US based witchy books I’ve been reading lately. And I can see that this book tries very hard to be just that, but it seems to be also trying to be 10 other things and utterly fails at all of it.At the heart of the story is Essie Winterscale, a witch who yearns for a normal life but can't resist her magical powers. Unauthorized use and/or duplication of this material without express and written permission from this site’s author and/or owner is strictly prohibited. The font for the title screen is really AT Hex-a-fied and the background for the whole thing is all tree branches, plus, on one of the mini games it plays hall of the mountain king? Josh was a charming male lead, and acted as a great foil for Essie with his determination and suspicion, but I didn't connect to him on the same level as I connected to Essie.

Perhaps even more surprising, is that unlike the rest of the villagers, Josh can actually remember the witches and their eccentric, shapeshifting home, ‘Beldam House. You won't ever forget it because Josh will mention or think about it every other page or so for the rest of the book.

When the handsome and clueless Josh becomes the new landlord of Beldam House, Essie is determined to keep him at a safe distance. Kate Johnson was born in the 1980s in Yorkshire and now lives in Essex, where she belongs to a small pride of cats. I like that this book is set in modern-day Essex and shows these wit

His inheritance includes a ramshackle house that will require a great deal of renovation and a number of tenanted properties that should provide him with rental income.

I liked this story, which had memorable characters, a sharp humour and not overly graphic romance scenes. My problem with this book is that it felt like it was trying to do too much and none of it was done super well. Biography: Kate Johnson was born in the 1980s in Yorkshire and now lives in Essex, where she belongs to a small pride of cats.
