Day 100 - Book 95: TO LOVE A WITCH

To Love a Witch is a new "Novel Nibble" or a novella by Debora Geary. I've read some of her other writings and enjoyed them and this was no different. Although I feel that the witch, vampire, were-animal characters are being done to death, this provided a nice little twist. Jake is a male earth witch and basically a witch social worker out to find young witches in trouble and provide assistance. He receives an alert and heads to a local juvie detention center and meets Romy. He initially thinks that she is a juvenile witch in trouble but quickly learns that she is an adult. Romy may have trouble controlling her fire abilities, but definitely doesn't need social worker assistance at her age. Romy and Jake introduce us to some great characters (you'll love Carla and Jolie), and have some interesting interpersonal encounters. A great and quick romantic read.
