About A Letter to the Three Witches
A LETTER TO THREE WITCHES by Elizabeth Bass is a contemporary, small town, madcap novel. Four cousins, all living in the small town of Zenobia, are descendants of a witch whose spell went so awry that he and his descendants have been forbidden to practice magic. Or face grave consequences. So when Trudy accidentally bakes true bliss into her Strawberry Bliss cupcakes, it’s up to other cousins Gwen and Milo to make sure it doesn’t happen again and keep a low profile so a Watcher doesn’t report them to the Council of Witches.
And what’s up with Tannith’s letter telling them she’s leaving town with one of their sweeties…
My thoughts about A Letter to Three Witches
All of the elements that make paranormal romcoms and supernatural cozy mysteries fun are in this book. Small town with quaint businesses and inconveniently nosy neighbors. A tightknit family – I love how Gwen, Milo, and Trudy have each other’s backs even as they get into one scrape after another. You get a furry sidekick who has some seriously sarcastic opinions, sharp claws, and just maybe a tender heart underneath the scratching and hissing.
Quirky side characters – Aunt Esme is cranky perfection. And her way with toads…
And the love problems! Whose significant other is running away with Tannith? Where’s Trudy’s husband Laird? Is Gwen’s boyfriend really off studying beetles? Why did Milo’s boyfriend spend thousands of dollars at Tiffany’s?
Very quick pacing, full of fun and likable characters, some fun banter. I don’t think anyone will find either of the twists super twisty but it’s a fun journey getting there.
This is a cozy, witchy read with light romance and lots of fun. For fans of Bailey Cates, Erin Sterling, and Lana Harper.
Thank you Kensington Publishing for the ARC.
