  • House Parties Are Not Safe

    I found Hex at a House Party fun and engaging. This is the second book in the series and I'm continuing to really enjoy Alma and her friends and enemies. The mystery was interesting and the villain not immediately obvious. (I hate when there is only one person who could possibly be the killer.) The secondary characters were strongly written and believable. While Alma is extremely likable, she is a bit of a mystery herself. I'm a big fan of character development and well thought out long story arcs so I'm totally fine with learning little bits about Alma from book to book. I am looking forward to the next book in the series. I recommend this book to anyone who is a fan of supernatural/urban fantasy mixed with a little mystery. I received an ARC in exchange of my honest review.

  • This book left me speechless

    Just like the previous book, this one left me speechless. It also successfully kept me second guessing myself all the way to the end. I am not ashamed to admit that I didn’t see any of that coming. I loved watching the partnership between Alma and Birdie deepen. It was especially fun to watch Alma playing the role of “wise old witch” while training her friend. I’m fascinated by the all the new things we’re learning about Alma’s abilities as well as those of the people and beings around her. I’m already looking forward to seeing what mischief Alma’s going to get into next. I received a complimentary advanced copy of this book from the author.

  • Enticing witchy cosy mistery!

    This is the second book in the Sonoma Witches series and continues where it left off in Dead Witch on A Bridge. If you’re new to the series, you can read the review here. Without giving away too many spoilers, this book has it all: friendship, chemistry, tension, blackmail, and murder. I loved to see the friendship between Alma and Birdie deepen while Birdie learns to explore and control her magic. To everyone’s relief, the friendly neighborhood changeling, Seth has survived his touch and go situation from the end of book one ( no spoilers for those who have yet to read it!). His survival though came at a steep price that’ll keep him close to Alma. He’s alive as long as he doesn’t go too far from his home. I can’t complain, and I hope to see more of him in the next book. The chemistry between the characters is undeniable strong, and we get a glimpse of the reason behind it. I also think the banter between him and Alma is endearing and makes me want to read more. Here’s a taste: I got as far as San Francisco before I began to die a slow, painful death.” “Are you sure it wasn’t the high cost of living?” I laughed nervously. He didn’t join in. “Sorry. In this installment, Alma is sent to a house party to spy on the witches on behalf of the protectorate. Most of the action takes place at the house party and follows the classic patterns of a murder mystery. Alma has to work around a web of lies, and everyone has secrets to hide. I loved how it kept me guessing at every turn. When Alma learns disturbing facts about her ancestry, she runs back to Seth, hoping he knows more. Their brief exchange is, as always tongue in cheek. “I’ve always found you irresistible,” Seth said blandly. “Didn’t know why.” I said, “Gee, thanks,” and felt my face get warm. “You’re cute, obviously, but I always find myself wanting to climb into your lap and purr. That’s kind of bad. Demons take advantage. My lake mother told me so. In the end, I never would have guessed who the killer was or their motivation. Well played Gretchen, well played! I’m looking forward to the sequel! This review and more on

  • Well written and entertaining

    I love Alma - she's... enchanting! As for being slightly demonic... no way, she's more than a little angelic to me! Well written and fast paced, this book is a crescendo of mistery and adventure, and I am truly sorry it ended too soon. I'm eagerly looking forward to the sequel!

  • A Most Bewitching Series!

    Alma Bellrose just wants to be left alone, tucked safely in her cottage surrounded by herbs and crafting her focus beads. But fate in the form of The Protectorate just will not let this hearth witch be. Forced by the head of the San Fran office to go undercover at a week-long party hosted by well-known witches, Alma finds not only drama and danger but a little bit more about herself! To say this series is bewitching is an understatement! While the first book introduced to the characters, Silverpool and the magical world of the series, this second book now focuses more on Alma. Sent up the coast to this house party at Hawk Ranch, Alma finds herself surrounded by powerful witches, including one from a family as old as the Bellrose name. Alma is clearly outside her comfort zone in more ways than one - far from the home where her powers are the strongest. It is up to her to unravel the mysteries swirling like the mist around the Mendocino coast. So what is the Protectorate investigating and why do they need her here at this gathering? What is this “bond” she has with Raynor, head of the San Fran Protectorate office? Like peeling back the layers of an onion, Alma begins to discover new truths about herself along with deep questions about her roots and background. I found the story well-written and so engrossing - I loved that we get a glimpse of Alma’s time with The Protectorate as Alma once again finds herself in the company of her former partner, Darius Ironford. I remain more fascinated than ever by Birdie, who is exploring her “witch” powers she never knew she had. And Raynor and Seth.....they have a strong link to Alma, but why? Are they romantic interests? Are they related? The questions remain for the reader, and for Alma, as Malcolm Bellrose once again throws Alma’s life in turmoil at the end! I am craving, yes CRAVING, the next phase in Alma’s life!
