All hell breaks loose when a very Sinister letter lands on the lap of three cousins. Which wreaks havoc on their love lives. The letter that happens to be written by Gwen’s adopted sister, Tannith states that by the end of the week one of their lovers will be leaving them for Tannith. Gwen is trying to keep it together, Milo is spying on his boyfriend and Trudy keeps enchanting her cupcakes out of stress.

Oh yeah did I mention that they are witches? But their family was banned from using magic for 100 years because their great-great-grandfather caused some Mischief years ago. Something tells them that their cousin is not following the edict and is using her powers to seduce one of their lovers. While they try to figure out what their cousin is up to everything starts to fall apart. But perhaps it’s time the family took back control and figured out how to harness their powers.


All right, as much as I love witchy-related books this one is not one of my favorites. One of the reasons is that the story dragged on a little bit longer than I would have liked. The characters seem to take forever to figure out simple things that most people that don't even practice witchcraft know about. Then there's their fear of being caught practicing or doing anything magically related that they become slightly annoying. It's only when they start to slowly and I mean slowly learn and embrace their magical abilities.

The book was also supposedly of romance but I didn't see much romance in the book. Yes, the characters do have relationships that they are trying to either save or get away from. But it's really like secondary throughout the whole book. To the point that you kind of forget that they're in relationships or are starting to date people Etc. So I kind of felt a little bit cheated out of that.

Now you must be thinking well Maria do you like anything about the book? well yes, yes I do! I did like it when it got interesting between Gwen and Jeremy. Even though you barely see them together and their chemistry comes out of nowhere but when it does it's good. My favorite character has to be Aunt Esme! She is such a badass and is a total crone when it comes to her magic and how she wields it.

I enjoyed how Trudy kept on spelling her cupcakes. It got to the point where I was like I want some of that strawberry Bliss! I must say I really love how Trudy manifests her magic not just in her cupcakes but in other aspects.... hint hint... don't want to spoil it.

I rate this book 3 out of 5 stars. Even though the pace of the book was slower than I would have liked I still enjoyed it. No, it's not something that I would Rave about. But I don't regret reading it. There's potential for the second book to be better and faster pace. I just want to see the characters be a little bit more confident with their magic and not cower at the idea of magic. You do see that a little bit with each character by the end of the book. But it's very much at the beginning of that transformation for them.

Overall this book is a light-hearted book about cousins trying to figure out their family drama. If you enjoy a little light-hearted drama with a touch of Whimsy you might love this book.
