A magical store? No problem. A haunted house? Bring it. Solving a dead witch’s murder? Now that’s when it gets interesting…

Kat Ramos has a quite a to-do list. The Manhattan jewelry designer wants to open her own shop, but she’s running short of funds. That’s when she receives a very intriguing proposition—to travel to the very haunted and extremely quirky Virginia town of Banshee Creek and help undo the deadly Hagen House curse.

In order to so, however, she must marry handsome haunted house contractor (yes, that’s a real career in Banshee Creek) Liam Hagen, manage a mysterious magical store, solve a centuries-old murder, and embrace her witchy heritage. Will Kat prevail, or will the Hagen Curse claim one last victim?


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.

Here Comes the Witch is book one in the Main Street Witches series by Ani Gonzalez.

I picked this up as a freebie. I was looking for a fun cozy mystery with some magic, but I just couldn’t get into the story and romance.

It’s got a lot of pop culture references and one-liners. I din’t realize this was a spinoff from the Banshee Creek series, until I read a few reviews. I haven’t read the Banshee Creek series. Not sure if you need to before picking this one up.

I didn’t care for the set up ‘mystery’ aka curse. We put two people together who don’t know each other and they get married on the first day they see each other to try and break the curse.

Liam and Kat were inconsistent. They knew everything about everything until they didn’t. It just didn’t click with me.

The romance was blah. I never connected to either Kat and Liam. The author was trying to build sexual tension, but for me she didn’t pull it off.

Her Comes the Witch didn’t capture me. If the blurb intrigues you, I urge you to give it a shot. Just because it did not work for me does not mean it won’t for you.

Rated: DNF 42%
