“Really enjoyed this witchy read. I didn't find it too mysterious...but I guess trying to figure out who wants to kill Mona and take her place IS a mystery.
As a whole, I enjoyed the plot and character development. The writer clearly knows her stuff - and I especially enjoyed moments in Mona's store. The store reminds me of stores I visited in Salem, MA.
There is a love triangle element to the story - but not really at the same time, if that makes sense. There are two beaus that are potentials for Mona, but one is a clear standout.
I will say that I am glad the author did not do a typical love triangle and that it was resolved quickly within the novel. I think it would've ruined the book if it had escalated past where she took it.
While the elements of witchcraft are here so are tales of werewolves. This is a "forbidden love" by choice, which I really enjoyed. There is also a bit of sex - which was a surprise - but it's tastefully done.
I am looking forward to continuing this witchy mystery series.”
