All three stories in this anthology are connected by the central theme of a "Treatment Center" for witches in Sedona, AZ.
The first story: Under His Spell by Julie Leto was just OK. It was interesting and a good intro for the other stories in the book but that was it. Rating: 3/5*
The second story: Disenchanted by Rhonda Nelson. Definitely better than the first one. This was a lighter, almost comical romance. Not too much tension and very enjoyable. Rating: 4/5*
The third story: Spirit Dance by Mia Zachary. The best of the bunch! Even though this story was only a little over 100 pages, I managed to get totally emotionally invested in the characters. The heroine of the story got her magic from both sides of her family. One side was Navajo and the other was Celtic. The scenes where both of grandmothers "appeared" to advise her were hilarious. Add in a ghost, a cute kid, and a hunky guy plus a little hot sex and that all adds up to a story that rates the full 5/5*!
Carol S. - , reviewed Witchy Business: Under His Spell / Disenchanted? / Spirit Dance on
I agree with Lynne's review completely - I did like the first story quite a lot, though. If you have read or plan to read Julie Leto's recent release, Something Wicked, this first story helps to lay some groundwork for you.
