    Interesting

    Really loved this new series! I love the rom com style and Gretchen's books, and although this is so different from that I still loved it! A fantastic world, breath-baiting and adventurous, good and unexpected. I love Alma's character and everything she stands for, and I can't wait to see what comes next. Very well done!

    Had me second-guessing myself for most of the book

    It’s a pretty sure sign of how much I loved a book when I get to the end of the book and have no idea how I’m going to explain what I just experienced. I’ve read the paranormal romances the author has published under an alter ego, so I knew I should be expecting something special with a paranormal mystery. Alma’s an amazing leading character. She’s fierce and independent, and just like the rest of us mere mortals she’s sometimes not sure if she can accomplish everything that’s been asked of her. I loved this blending of classic Celtic mythology with modern technology to create this conniving little mystery that had me second-guessing myself for most of the book. I can’t wait to see what Alma takes on next. I received a complimentary advanced copy of this book from the author.

    Strong Start to a New Series

    When I heard that Gretchen Galway was writing a new supernatural series I was excited to read the first book. Dead Witch on a Bridge is an interesting and enjoyable read. There was quite a bit of time spend time world building and defining the rules for the supernatural elements, like most first books in a series with supernatural elements do. Alma, our main character is a strong and independent witch. I found her likable and well written. I also got the impression that there was a lot left to learn about Alma that would be revealed in future books in the series. The secondary characters introduced were interesting They were a little bit less defined than Alma, but I think that they will be fleshed out a lot more in later books, as well. The storyline of Dead Witch on a Bridge was entertaining and engaging, but like I explained above I saw this as book more as setting the stage for a new series universe than a stand alone. I hope that the next book is out soon as I think that this is a very promising series. I would recommend this book to anyone who enjoys Supernatural or Urban Fantasy novels. I received an ARC in exchange of my honest review.

    The Spell has been cast!

    A heroine that believes herself weak and flawed, a forest filled with angry fairies and a powerful witch that knew how to live long but instead is dead in middle of the road. Wait a minute….we are not in Gretchen Galway’s San Francisco anymore! WOW - not only is this book a tremendous start to a new series, but it is an excellent switch of genres for an author known for her quirky, delightful contemporary romances. Ms. Galway now takes the reader to a small town in Sonoma that is filled with supernatural beings, magic and a protagonist you will love. Alma Bellrose has a nefarious father and a now-soiled reputation; she couldn’t hack it as an agent with the super-selective Protectorate when she was unable to complete her first mission. Now the witch lives in a semi-hidden enclave filled with supernatural beings, fellow witches and “non-mags”, where she spends her days crafting focus bead strings and lying low. But when she discovers her ex-lover (the town’s Protector witch) dead, Alma is forced to get her groove on and seek answers. As she battles the Protectorate, the Fae and her father, Alma discovers along the way that she has far more strength and power that she knew. Once again, Ms. Galway’s writing is captivating, filled with plenty of character development and suspense while setting the “scene” of the paranormal world she is creating. Of note is that it is told in the first person narrative of Alma; I am not the biggest fan of that POV, but I really embraced it in this book. A spell has truly been cast, as I cannot wait for the next book!

    Supernatural mystery

    An interesting version of a witchy world, complete with various supernatural critters and a witch who doesn’t work well with authority figures. Good fun.
