The Goodbye Witch... No I'm not leaving.. I'm reading..

So recently I won a book in a blog giveaway.  Woohoo.  I love getting fresh new crisp books in the mail!  I love it even more when it happens in the summer when I can hide and read it.  My kids love reading... just not mom reading.  I do have to admit I feel really bad.  I can't remember which blog it was!  (gasp)  I will look for it and link to it when I find it.  Yeah, I am redeemed.  I found it.  Stuff and Nonsense  Go check it out!  She does easy to read reviews and giveaways so you can read them too.

I loved this book.  Its the 4th book in the Wishcraft series by Heather Blake.  You can find it on goodreads or on amazon.

Here's the blurb on the back.
Darcy's closet friend and fellow witch, Starla Sullivan, hoped she'd never lay eyes on her ex-husband, Kyle, again.  Two years ago he tried to kill her, and he's been a fugitive ever since.  Now Starla claims to have spotted him back in the Enchanted Village, but it seems she's the only one who can see him.  To everyone else, her ex is invisible.
Darcy only wishes his motives were as transparent as the rest of him.  Since the police can't arrest someone they can't see, it's up to Darcy to find the secret behind Kyle's latest disappearing act -- before he does something they can't see coming...

I now need books 1-3 as I love this author.  I'm a cozy-mystery person.  But its the cozies that are about books and magic that really pull me in.  This one had magic. The town Enchanted Village is very well named.  Every shop (almost) in the town is run by people who specialize in that department.. in a magical way.  I don't really want to go into detail about what happens in the book.. I mean its in the description and that kinda gives away the ending.  The whole who-dun-it part.  Its very well written and honestly you aren't completely sure who is the bad guy in the book.  The person you think is bad isn't really bad and everything is sorta mixed up in a good way.   Okay, if that didn't run you off, then go pick up the book and read it.  You'll see what I mean.
Loved it!

This is my first book review on here.  I'm sure it needs some work.  Suggestions (nicely worded) are always appreciated.


  1. Great review! I'm curious, is this an adult book? The art work on the cover makes it look like a kid book, but the story line sounds very grown! I'm glad I found your blog. :)

  2. Yes, it is an adult book. Light on the heavy scenes so even young adults or older kids could enjoy it also. Thank you!
