My Review
Here Comes the Witch

(Disclaimer: I received a free digital review copy of this book from Lola's Blog Tours. All opinions in this review are my own and are honest and unbiased.)

If you're in need of a light-hearted, quick Halloween read, Here Comes the Witch by Ani Gonzalez may be the perfect fit. I was laughing within the very first paragraph and my enjoyment didn't abate for the remainder of the book. This is the first cozy mystery I recall reading, and now I wonder why I didn't try the genre sooner. I love horror and mystery thrillers, but it was nice to take a break from the darkness. Not that there weren't any chills or sorrow here. The plot revolved around the breaking of a mildly spooky curse, and how that curse came to be was as sad as it was unnerving.

There was a great mix of creepiness, romance, and humor. The humor did dominate the story, but that's what I'd hoped for. As for the characters, they were quirky and fun. I wouldn't say they were particularly deep or complex, but they were believable and entertaining enough to get me to root for them. The mystery aspect was exactly as I expected: There were interesting clues strewn throughout the story, but they weren't hard to piece together. I recommend Here Comes the Witch to adults and mature young adults who are interested in a light mystery with a strong focus on humor and magic.

Trigger Warning: Contains some themes of violence, murder, and suicide.


About the Author

Ani Gonzalez

I write paranormal romantic comedy and cozy mystery (whew, that's a mouthful!) set in Banshee Creek, Virginia, The Most Haunted Town in the USA. My books feature feisty funny heroines dealing with a host of paranormal critters (ghosts, cryptids, pagan gods...the sky's the limit) and mysteries. They find magic, love and laughter and readers get to follow them every step of the way.

I love quirky towns with spooky stories, and, thanks to my books, I get to "live" in one year-around. In real life I live in a Minneapolis suburb (which is sadly lacking in ghosts) with my husband and three children and I'm still trying to adjust to the cold.
