My take on this book:: CAUTION!! THIS REVIEW MAY CONTAIN SPOILERS! IF YOU DON’T WANT TO READ ANY SPOILERS PLEASE STOP READING NOW! IF YOU DO WANT TO READ SPOILERS CONTINUE ON! I WON’T ALWAYS HAVE SPOILERS THOUGH!!

To be honest with all of you this will be my second attempt at this book. The first time I was trying to read this book I was in I think my freshman or sophomore year of high school. Around that time I was trying to focus on my homework and reading whatever I needed to for school along with roleplaying. Not sex roleplaying but the type where you type up a reply to someone else. It’s kind of like writing a book but not really. I have decided to quit and it’s really hard…..

Anyways back to the reason for this blog post. I just finished this book and I have got to tell you. I liked…no that isn’t the correct word for how I felt about this book. I loved it! I mean it kept me entertained all the way through. Granted I didn’t start reading it until today, June 27, even though on goodreads I added it last night. I am happy though that I started to read this book.

The main character, and the person that is telling the story, is none other than Maggie O’Neill who at the beginning of the book is weary of her old job and just wanted a way out. Which lead her to meet Felicity an antique store owner that needed some help. Unknown to Maggie at the time that she would be thrown into a world full of “witchy” stuff that she didn’t know existed until then. Let alone with who she is either.

Maggie, slowly, throughout the book starts to realize that maybe her boss isn’t all that crazy. The one thing that I lead about this book is that I was guessing throughout the whole thing and I thought I knew who did it until I got blown a whimmy. For me I thought it was Felicity’s recently deceased husband but then again once we got to a point I thought it could have been his mistress at the time. Though I never thought that it would have been who it was.

This book I will give it a five star review since it met all my requirements and I love it so very much. I am going to be starting the next book soon I hope. Plus reading helps me a little bit in this heat wave that I am in Montana. Or at least it is trying too. I am hoping that next month will be easier especially since I am hoping to be writing for Camp Nanowrimo.

Camp Nanowrimo, for everyone that doesn’t know, is a plus where we can literally for a whole month just write a book or whatever we want to. It’s quite fun even though I haven’t exactly finished a month really. But I am hoping to change that this year especially with its main even in November. Granted this will be my second attempt at winning at camp. Hopefully I can do it.

Wow I just realized that this is my third book that I have finished in three days. WOOT! I am so happy of myself since this will make me on schedule again for my book challenge on goodreads!

Anyways until next time enjoy this book review brought to you by
