Sexual Content

Kissing, a few sex scenes


Storie Bell has a little secret—she’s a witch. But magic hasn’t exactly kept her life from being a complete mess—her love life is non-existent and the town thinks she’s a total nutter. Plus there’s her neighbor Reid Malone who runs hot one minute and cold the next.

Reid Malone can’t wait to escape Bloomington, Texas. Unfortunately, he’s stuck where he is unless he helps his father hide a very illegal secret. The only key to Reid’s freedom lies with the eccentric Storie…and he’ll do whatever it takes to get the information he needs from her.

But Reid’s holding something back. Something big. And if he’s not careful, he’ll find out exactly what happens when you try to deceive a witch…


DECEIVING THE WITCH NEXT DOOR is a wonderfully light, entertaining, and fun paranormal romance. The pacing was quick and the story kept me engrossed enough that I was actually shocked when I came close to the end. I enjoyed the very accurate depiction of a small town where the gossip mill runs rampant and fast. The characters in DECEIVING THE WITCH NEXT DOOR are all stereotypical small town people (pretty well developed considering the length of the book) with their own unique, quirky personalities.

Storie Bell is a very likable and fun character (I’m in love with her Storiebook Cafe based on the description of the interior). I also loved all of the creative little ways she uses her powers to set up her cafe and during her spats with Reid Malone. Reid is a wonderfully charming and conflicted hero.  He attempts to play the antagonist yet fails miserably at his role which makes him all the more charming as he tries so hard to redeem himself in a number of touching ways.

I loved the conclusion of DECEIVING THE WITCH NEXT DOOR and since it introduces a whole new cast of characters and interesting dilemmas for Storie and Reid I hope this is the beginning of a new series.
