This was a very enjoyable start to a new series, I liked the main characters Kat,Summer and Alex and the interaction between them, which made this a very readable book. The magic is almost incidental for most of the story, which means that the main focus is on the burgeoning romance between Kat and Alex and the adventures of the various other residents of the fictitious town of Glen Falls. The plot contains enough mystery to keep the readers interest and is kept clean in the best traditions of a cozy mystery. I am very much looking forward to the rest of the books in the series. I received a free copy of this book from the author and have voluntarily reviewed it.
I enjoy reading paranormal romances, this one is different in that it is set in Scotland, rather than the USA. Saying that the two main characters in the story, Kat and Alex, are not magical themselves and the magic side is just on the periphery of the story, however it all goes together to give an enjoyable read.
I enjoyed this story but can't see why Kat and Alex would feature in this as non-magical beings when they are characters in a supernatural tale. I kept wanting Kat to find she, too, was an unawakened witch. Other than this it was a reasonably good read although a bit on the slow side and not as entertaining as I thought it would be. It did not make me laugh as much as some others I have read. It was, overall, pretty good as to spelling and grammar (there were one or two errors but nothing to really grumble about, reign in being one instead of rein in but this might have been down to a spell checker that would not have picked it up). This is worth a read if you don't mind it being a bit slow paced.
I'm a big fan of Zanna Mackenzie's other series, and I was excited to see this one add a little magic to the mystery!
Kat and her boss/roommate Summer are interesting leading ladies that you want to root for, especially because their lives are so complicated--both in business and in romance. I enjoyed the banter between Kat and Alex, who is way too lovable to hate (even though the other characters do).
