Practical Magic meets Gilmore Girls in this adorable witchy rom-com with:
• A bisexual virgin baker with a curse
• A witch looking to avoid romantic entanglements
• And a chemistry between them that causes literal sparks
Danica Waterhouse is a fully modern witch—daughter, granddaughter, cousin, and co-owner of the Fix-It Witches, a magical tech repair shop. After a messy breakup that included way too much family “feedback,” Danica made a pact with her cousin: they’ll keep their hearts protected and have fun, without involving any of the overly opinionated Waterhouse matriarchs. Danica is more than a little exhausted navigating a long-standing family feud where Gram thinks the only good mundane is a dead one and Danica’s mother weaves floral crowns for anyone who crosses her path.
Three blocks down from the Fix-It Witches, Titus Winnaker, owner of Sugar Daddy’s bakery, has family trouble of his own. After a tragic loss, all he’s got left is his sister, the bakery, and a lifetime of terrible luck in love. Sure, business is sweet, but he can’t seem to shake the romantic curse that’s left him past thirty and still a virgin. He’s decided he’s doomed to be forever alone.
Until he meets Danica Waterhouse. The sparks are instant, their attraction irresistible. For him, she’s the one. To her, he’s a firebomb thrown in the middle of a family war. Can a modern witch find love with an old-fashioned mundane who refuses to settle for anything less than forever?
Witch Please by Ann Aguirre is the first book in the author’s Fix-it Witches series. It’s a cute, funny, steamy, and delightful book about love, and family, and witches.
Danica Waterhouse is a witch, and she is co-owner of the Fix-it Witches repair shop where she and her sister Clemantine (Clem) fix just about anything using their inherited powers. Her weekly book club is actually a coven meeting where she meets up with her family of witches. They call normal humans mundanes, and they are forbidden by their grandmother to date mundanes and instead must use a special witch dating app. Danica’s mother married a mundane and the repercussions have left a feud in the family.
Titus Winnaker owns Sugar Daddy’s bakery and has been unlucky in love and in his life. He shares a house with his sister Mara. His father has remarried after only a few months after his mother died and Titus is angry that his father didn’t mourn his mother as he has. When he meets Danica, it’s an instant attraction on his side, but he’s constantly worried she will break up with him as all his other girlfriends have. And for Danica, she’s attracted to Titus, but she knows that she’ll lose her powers and cause her family’s feud to worsen if she pursues him.
Witch Please is a fun, romantic comedy that is light, and just a bit steamy. The story is about a family of witches but the author gives us enough information to make this family believable. The small-town setting and the cast of side characters (some will have their own books soon, I’m sure) make the book just a delight to read (or listen to).
The narrator, Ava Lucas was very good and she was able to give each character their own voice so you could easily distinguish who was talking, and her overall voice was soothing and light.
If you need a fun, light read about witches, this is the book for you. I received a complimentary copy of this book. The opinions expressed in this review are completely my own.
