🧹A Letter to Three Witches✨
A Spellbinding Magical RomCom

It all started with a letter to three witches who are cousins. Three witches whose family has been banned from magic because of a great great grandfather’s horrible spell. He caused the Dust bowl, nothing major or anything. 😳
Tannith sent a letter to her adopted sister and two cousins hinting that she was taking one of their partners with her when she moved. And she was notorious for stealing dates and new relationships away in the past. We all know those people that are prettier and more popular and this girl is also cruel.
So this letter sends the three – Gwen, Milo and Trudy into an epic tailspin full of magical meltdowns and conundrums that keep layering on top of eachother. Just because they aren’t allowed to do magic doesn’t mean they can’t do magic. Also, all of their partners are away on business at the same time which then makes them suspect more that something is up.
Ok I just love the story of cousin Odin who tries to get to the bottom of this magical ban on the family and gets vaporized and Aunt Esme who is now a decrepit old crazy CPA. Yes she was cursed to be good with numbers cause she went against the Grand Council of Witches, I am choosing to not be offended since I can see how that can be a punishment 😂. Btw I am a financial auditor, it’s ok I wasn’t cursed.
This was such a fun story and I wasn’t expecting what happened at the end since they might have been almost caught by a Watcher for using magic. That was quite unexpected. And Griz was probably the best character – such a good cat! I also want one of those aphrodisiac cupcakes from Trudy!
Fair warning it does end with a set up for a sequel which I am curious about.

Thank you kensingtonbooks and netgalley for the e-ARC for my honest and voluntary review.
Bewitched meets Practical Magic in this sparkling and quirky rom-com with an enchanted twist. When romance problems cause their powers to go berserk, a trio of witches whose family was banned from practicing magic risk getting in serious trouble with the Grand Council. Can they get their magic—and their love lives—in order before it’s too late?
Nearly a century ago, Gwen Engel’s great-great-grandfather cast a spell with catastrophic side-effects. As a result, the Grand Council of Witches forbade his descendants from practicing witchcraft. The Council even planted anonymous snitches called Watchers in the community to report any errant spellcasting…
Yet magic may still be alive and not so well in Zenobia. Gwen and her cousins, Trudy and Milo, receive a letter from Gwen’s adopted sister, Tannith, informing them that she’s bewitched one of their partners and will run away with him at the end of the week. While Gwen frets about whether to trust her scientist boyfriend, currently out of town on a beetle-studying trip, she’s worried that local grad student Jeremy is secretly a Watcher doing his own research.
Cousin Trudy is so stressed that she accidentally enchants her cupcakes, creating havoc among her bakery customers—and in her marriage. Perhaps it’s time the family took back control and figured out how to harness their powers. How else can Gwen decide whether her growing feelings for Jeremy are real—or the result of too many of Trudy’s cupcakes?
