So I got this book few days ago and I decided to just read few pages before going to sleep. I didn't have high expectation of the story and somehow thought it is about pirates. 😏Anyway, once I started reading I could not put it down, I've read it in like 1,5 hour. It is sooo good. 😍
Book is just the perfect blend of magic, mystery, romance, friendship and family. Story follows Maggie, regular girl that is living in the boarding school full time (before she was with her grandparents, but the got too old to take care of her) and Joel, one of four Tomlins brothers. The are known witches and live with their father and one of their "aunts".
Maggie find out that she has a curse on her and she asks Joel to help her with it. He is reluctant at first, but the more time they spend together, more invested he becomes. (love him 💓 😊)
It so great that you see character grow closer, and the bickering is funny AF. You really get to know them throughout the story and root for them. But my favourite character in the story is Ainsley, 3rd brother, here are some examples why:
To the outside world, Ainsley may have looked like a perfect little angel. But, be warned, Joel mused. This one bites.
“Nuh-uh, blockhead. It’s because I actually have a plan. A real plan, not this weak let’s-all-just-curl-up-and-die junk that you guys keep putting on the table.”
I really love it. One of the best magic/witches book out there. 😊
Also, the cover... so pretty.
Highly recommend it!
