5.0 out of 5 stars Hilarious romp.
Logan Kilgarven and his four-year-old son, Shane, move to Salem, Massachusetts. (Logan had grown up in Salem as a bad boy until Judge Jessie Harris set him straight.) Logan knows that Salem is the perfect place to raise his son, under the watchful eyes of Jessie (now retired and giving cemetery tours, since Halloween nears) and his mother, Phyllis. Logan has already been...

1.0 out of 5 stars OK, if you're twelve or have never read another book
This is a really terrible book. When Amazon recommended it to me I thought it was a crime book or a book about witchcraft - I like those. This is a terrible romance chicklit rubbish (I also like some of those but this is awful). It mainly focuses on the main characters ERECTIONS which are very frequent and describtions of his "THICKNESS????". The sex scenes are...

This review is from: The Kitchen Witch (Berkley Sensation) (Mass Market Paperback)
Logan Kilgarven and his four-year-old son, Shane, move to Salem, Massachusetts. (Logan had grown up in Salem as a bad boy until Judge Jessie Harris set him straight.) Logan knows that Salem is the perfect place to raise his son, under the watchful eyes of Jessie (now retired and giving cemetery tours, since Halloween nears) and his mother, Phyllis. Logan has already been hired by the TV station WHCH and is their new executive producer. Everything is looking up as Logan vows to put Shane's welfare above everything else in his life. What Logan did not expect was his sexy downstairs neighbor, rumored witch Melody Seabright.
With absolutely zero notice, Mel agrees to watch Shane so Logan may rush off to his first day of work. In return, Logan got Mel an interview with his boss, Max Peabody, for the star position on a new cooking show. Big problem is that Melody cannot even boil water or crack an egg without a disaster happening. But Melody knows how to play to an audience and becomes Salem's favorite magical cook on the new show "The Kitchen Witch"!
***** Add Tiffany, the station owner's spoiled daughter, into the mix for some spice. Blend with some lovable secondary characters, two playful kittens, and a dash of magic. Then bake the two main characters until they look ready to explode. When it all comes out, you will find this dish to be one hot and hilarious romp, guaranteed to satisfy! HIGHLY RECOMMENDED! *****

1.0 out of 5 stars OK, if you're twelve or have never read another book, 27 April 2009
This review is from: The Kitchen Witch (Berkley Sensation) (Mass Market Paperback)
This is a really terrible book. When Amazon recommended it to me I thought it was a crime book or a book about witchcraft - I like those. This is a terrible romance chicklit rubbish (I also like some of those but this is awful). It mainly focuses on the main characters ERECTIONS which are very frequent and describtions of his "THICKNESS????". The sex scenes are unbelievable (at least to those who have actually had sex) and the main characters are flat and empty (except for the kid, who at age four is surely a child wonder as he takes active part in adult life and conversations, am guessing the author never met a four year old). Also the characters are supposed to have "baggage" and a "past" but really their lives have been rather uneventful so you don't get what the fuss is about. AVOID - Please!

5.0 out of 5 stars Magic in the kitchen, 15 May 2012

This review is from: The Kitchen Witch (Berkley Sensation) (Mass Market Paperback)
When Logan Kilgarven offers to help his neighbour Melody Seabright get a job at his TV station in exchange for babysitting his son, the last thing he expects is for Melody to bewitch the manager into giving her a cooking show. Melody is thrilled to have landed such an awesome job, but resisting the temptation of stuffed suit Logan isn't her only problem. The Kitchen Witch is an great idea for a show...as long as Melody can learn to cook.

This is the first book in the Accidental Witch trilogy and one of my favourite books that I have read and re-read multiple times. This manages to blend magic, laughter and romance flawlessly with interfering parental figures, a television show and mouthwatering descriptions of food. Despite the a magical angle this is a contemporary romance, although if you read the entire trilogy they do evolve into paranormal romance by the third book.

All of the characters are really well written and the author has managed to build believable backstories that help explain their motivations without info-dumping the reader. Melody is the perfect balance of ditzy and determined. She has a major thing for vintage fashion, but she's also stubborn and desperate to prove her worth. Logan hides his bad boy tendancies under a pressed suit, trying to do the best thing by his son Shane, who is the cutest kid ever and I'm not usually a fan of children.

It is great to read about Logan and Melody's work as well as the development side of television shows isn't something frequently seen in books. I loved Melody's early attempts at cooking and I was really rooting for her show to succeed. I really enjoyed how neither Logan nor Melody wanted to be attracted to each other and actively sought out more appropriate partners, especially when they were working from their preconceptions of one another.

All in all this is an awesome read and I'm looking forward to My Favorite Witch.

4.0 out of 5 stars hot stuff, 8 April 2006
This review is from: The Kitchen Witch (Berkley Sensation) (Mass Market Paperback)
I am amazed that both characters managed to keep their hands off each other for most of the book. It was very obvious from the start that these two deserved to be together. The parents got together, moved in and married before the main characters declared that they were in love with each other. I wanted to hug the kid as he was adorable.
