Housewitch is out today (February 17)! I am looking forward to reading the entire book (not just the excerpt provided for review)!
Housewitch by Katie Schickel is a great book about witches. I was fortunate enough to get an excerpt of Housewitch. It is such a good book and I cannot wait until the book is released so that I can finish reading it. The book starts out talking about three sisters in Misery Shoal. The three sisters are Aurora (youngest), Freya, and Wilhemena (the oldest). Elizabeth is their mother and a witch. The girls are also witches and their mother is teaching them magic using the “old ways” (herbs and spells). Unfortunately, Freya has darkness in her and does not want to restrict her magic to just doing good. The book then jumps to Allison and her family in Monrovia, Massachusetts. Allison does not know that she is a witch. One day she notices that when she thinks about something it happens! Her daughter wanted the little piglets to dance at the petting zoo and next thing that Allison knows the little piglets are dancing! Allison finds out that there has been a spell protecting her since childhood but with her mother's health failing (whom Allison has not seen in 30 years), so is the protection spell.
The present with Allison is interspersed with tales of the three girls. One of which is Allison's mother. To find out what happens with Allison, how she handles her magic, and why there was a protection spell on her, read Housewitch! I cannot wait to finish this book! I pre-ordered my copy and will receive it on my Kindle (such a wonderful invention) on release day, February 17, 2015. If you want to order a copy, please click here. I give this book 4 out of 5 stars.
Received a complimentary excerpt of this book from NetGalley/Publisher in exchange for an honest review.
Thank you for visiting and reading my review of Housewitch! I hope you are staying warm and enjoying Fat Tuesday! It is the last day of Mardi Gras! Have a great week and Happy Reading!
