Cassandra Frost has zero interest in fortune telling or brewing foul smelling things in cauldrons, and much prefers the company of non-magical folk. She does her best to keep her powers under wraps to protect the secrecy of the Wellington witching community.
Unfortunately thatâ€™s easier said than done when your grandmother lives in Ravenâ€™s Haven for Women of Magic. Magical fireworks, mobility broom races and irresponsible use of cat litter spells are all part of the game for the witching retirement village residents. But when Cassandra's forced to cast a spell in the open to save Adrian, a geeky graphic designer with secrets of his own, her two worlds spectacularly collide, and she learns the haven is much more than meets the eye.
Will Cassandra listen to her heart and learn to embrace her powers? Will the non-magical world be put at risk? Find out in this Contemporary Witchy Fiction novella featuring powerful witches, troublesome crones and an unseemly amount of cats.
That summary of this book seems to have been specially designed to draw me in.
Misbehaving old lady witches? – check
A world where you get more powerful as you get older? – absolutely
Cats? – check
This is the story of a woman who has been avoiding her witchy heritage for years until she needs to use a spell to save her work crush from a serious accident. She knows that she needs to erase the incident from his memory but she needs some advice on how to do that. She goes to see her grandmother and her best friend in the only retirement home equipped to handle powerful witches. However, grandma and company are distracted by the disappearance of the few of their familiars (and with setting off a huge display of magical fireworks just because they can and aren’t supposed to.)
In the meantime, the object of her spell is begging her not to wipe his memory because he’s always suspected magic is real and doesn’t want to forget.
This novella is really cute. I love the old lady witches and their familiars. This is supposed to be the first in a series and I can’t wait to read more.
