Starry Hollow Witches, Book 1
Synopsis: Welcome to Starry Hollow, where spells were made to be broken.
Short on both cash and time, Ember Rose does her best as a single mom in New Jersey, serving up attitude along with repossession notices. When a repo job goes sideways, she and her daughter find themselves in imminent danger–until a visit from estranged relatives turns their world upside down. Ember, Marley, and their Yorkie are transported to Starry Hollow, a paranormal town where witches rule and magic is as normal as pizza. Where Ember goes, though, trouble seems to follow. When a member of the coven turns up dead and the sexy werewolf sheriff identifies Ember as a suspect, she decides to take matters into her own hands like only a Jersey girl can.
Review: I really liked the series I read by Annabel Chase on the furies and I was quite curious to discover something else. I did read Outcast, but it was more YA.
Ember Rose lives as best she can with her daughter. But it’s far from easy and her last job brings a dangerous man on her doorstep. Saved at the last minute by a family she didn’t know, she discovers that she is in fact a witch. Taken to the town of her relatives, our heroine and her daughter Marley, will have to build a new life. But when Ember stumbles upon the dead body of a young girl in the woods, she is determined to find out what happened!
I had a good time even if, for the moment, I prefer her other series. The beginning is a little long, but then the events follow one another and I enjoyed following the characters. Ember is a determined woman who loves to talk. It puts her in some pretty funny situations.
This was a fun first volume and I’m very curious to find out how Ember is going to do in her new life, but also to see her exchanges with the handsome sheriff!
