Be careful what you wish for…

Holly Grey only took up witchery to keep her friend out of trouble – and now she’s knee-deep in hassle, in the form of apocalyptic weather, armed men, midwifery…and a sarcastic Welsh journalist.

Kai has been drawn to darkest Yorkshire by his desire to find out who he really is. What he hadn’t bargained on was getting caught up in amateur magic and dealing with a bunch of women who are trying really hard to make their dreams come true.

Together they realise that getting what you wish for is sometimes just a matter of knowing what it is you want…

Hubble Bubble Toil and Trouble – this instantly came to mind when I saw the title of this book and I was delighted to find the author didn’t disappoint me.

Holly doesn’t really believe in love, she goes for the physical every time. Her best friend is the opposite. Megan believes every guy she dates is her true love. Desperate to find the real thing Megan drags Holly along to a group of women wanting to practice a new branch of magic arts. Snorting with disbelief, Holly goes to make sure Megan isn’t taken advantage of.

The five very different women in the group collect ingredients and cast a spell, but Holly’s disbelief is stretched when it seems her wish is coming true, but not in the way she anticipated. A casual meeting brings her into contact with a man who stirs her emotions, but she is determined to keep things on a business footing. This is fine until a pregnant woman forces them closer together.

This novel has its ups and downs emotionally, but there are many light-hearted bits too and mysterious happenings in the woods. Are they magical? Or is it someone trying to scare the women away? I love the way the author wound the women’s wishes together and how the resolution of each depended on her interaction with the group. The story moves at a steady pace with highs and lows, but at all times I wanted to know what was happening next.

At the end of the book I was left wondering, did magic have a hand in the results? Or was it just coincidence? I really, really wanted it to be magic. Love this book! Well done, Ms Lovering.
