THE RELUCTANT WITCH is a light and frothy, fun paranormal romance that though the plot never takes itself too seriously, the tale gracefully leads the audience into believing magic is real. Merry is a great protagonist as she deals with no men in her life ever since her stepfather died along side her mother to suddenly being a hunk magnet. Everyone wants to manipulate her to do his or her (mostly his) bidding. Fans of offbeat whimsical tales will want to be magically transported by THE RELUCTANT WITCH into her amusing world of Bell, Book, and Candle. THE RELUCTANT WITCH is a perfect lazy-day book.
