Most witches don’t work for police departments, but Michelle isn’t your average witch. She’s clanless, looking for a warlock who isn’t offended by her lack of family connections, and in danger of losing her job if she can’t find the escaped trolls before they start eating the local residents.

Trolls, angry police, and misbehaving spells are the least of her problems. Statues attacking homeowners might be problematic for your average witch, but to Michelle it’s another day at the office. Her real concern is the wizard suddenly interested in dating her and an old elf set on pestering her. When her happy family is rocked by a long kept secret her stable life falls apart faster than she can pick up the pieces.

And she still hasn’t found those trolls.


Thrifty Thursday is hosted by Books Of My Heart and the purpose of Thrifty Thursday is to read a book which was free (at some point).

Kindle freebie on October 26, 2021.


Witch for Hire is book one in the Witch’s Path series by N.E. Conneely.

Michelle is our lead. I enjoyed her. She’s independent, has a nice sense of direction and is magical. The side characters are well developed and enjoyable. There is a lot going on in this book and at times it felt a bit much, but by the end you see some things are connected or might be. The story flows well and the author moves the story along.

This was a nice start to the series. It’s got a great premise, amazing world building, great characters, and nonstop action. I enjoyed Witch for Hire and want to read on in the series to see what’s nest and where things go.

Rated: 3.5 Stars

  1. LOL, like Anne, I was wondering if I had it on my own freebie pile. Sounds like a solid one for a series starter.
