"THE RELUCTANT WITCH is a fun paranormal romance"
Aunt Nora and her niece Meredith Albright argue the merits
of using magic. Nora is a major practitioner while
Meredith prefers a more mundane lifestyle even knowing that
if her deceased mother used her magic skills she probably
would still be alive. However, Merry wants what her mother
had, the love of a man, even a mortal.
Pediatric Oncologist Dr. Bryan Aldwyn enters Merry's Magic
Emporium and Costume Shop to purchase items for a magic
show he plans for a Halloween bash with his young patients
at the Hopewell Hospital. However, he finds himself a bit
clumsy and distracted as he wants to spend time with
Merry. She feels the same way. However she fears how he
will react if he meets her weird family members like Aunt
Nora or Merry's biological father. Merry's sire has been
around lately a lot more than he ever appeared in her
twenty-six years of life as he has made her his chosen
successor as the Grand Wizard.
THE RELUCTANT WITCH is a fun paranormal romance that though
the plot never takes itself too seriously, the tale
gracefully leads the audience into believing magic is
real. Merry is a great protagonist as she deals with no
men in her life ever since her stepfather died along side
her mother to suddenly being a hunk magnet. Everyone wants
to manipulate her to do his or her (mostly his) bidding.
Fans of offbeat whimsical tales will want to be magically
transported by THE RELUCTANT WITCH into her amusing world
of Bell, Book, and Candle.
