    Reluctantly Charmed by Ellie O’Neill

    This novel follows Kate McDaid, a young Irish woman who desperately wants a promotion, a better love life and just something to take her away from her boring basic life. When on her 26th birthday she gets a call from her great great-great-great-great aunt’s lawyer for her to come in for a reading of her will. She is entitled for an inheritance; however, to get the inheritance she needs to publicise 7 letters that have been left behind by her great aunt. The instructions are for her to publish one letter per week. Once completed she is able to get her inheritance. But these letters are not ordinary letters thought. They are to reconnect with the long forgotten fairies and Irish folklores. Soon after Kate publishers the letters, she begins to learn so much about herself, her past and her future and the motives of those around her. I was quite charmed with the title and the blurb and was really excited to read the book. However, for me I felt that some parts of the beginning of the novel was a little slow to begin with and that some parts of the progress was very predictable. I was utterly charmed by Kate’s parents and how they took to fame. Going on talk shows, trying out fake tans to establishing their own style in the media. Every time I read about them it would send me to giggles. I really didn’t like how Kate started as a character as I got quite bored of her inner dialogue. I liked her better when she travelled to where her aunt passed and got connected with the locals and had really thought of what she wanted in life. As a debut novel this was a good start, there were loveable characters, quirky plot with an added supernatural element to the folklores.
