#Review: Bewitched, by @Daisy_Prescott

bewitchedTitle: Bewitched
Author: Daisy Prescott

Rating: 4/5 stars

“Madison Bradbury isn’t interested in spells or magic, or anything hocus-pocus related despite descending from the original Salem witches. Her life as a Hawthorne College junior is boring. Perfectly so. That is until Andrew Wildes appears in her class–like a quiet, brooding hero straight from one of her favorite romances.

When a local witch convinces Madison to use a love spell on her crush, what happens next is more than magical.

A crush. A love spell. What could go wrong?

Bewitched is a short novella and book one of a series of magical stories that continues with Spellbound” (description from Goodreads)

Halloween is just around the corner and I found a great novella to get myself in the mood for it, fall, and a little romance.

Bewitched has many great things going for it. It’s a novella set in Salem, Massachusetts. But with that doesn’t come the overdone storyline of the witch trials being involved in everything. Well, it’s not in the readers face. There’s just the right about of history present in this version of Salem. There’s an interesting element of magic that kept me on my toes in this mostly real world story. Prescott knows what she’s writing about and writes it well.

I also really enjoyed the characters. And not just the two lead characters. Their friends were great too. For the length that this novella is, the author was able to develop both characters and setting smoothly and naturally. That’s not a feat all authors can accomplish so well.

I’m looking forward to reading the sequel Spellbound soon. While this story ended well on its own, I want to read more about certain things. And frankly, I’m not ready to leave Salem and these characters behind.
