Witches Get Stuff Done

Sourcebooks Casablanca. (Starfall Point, Bk. 1). Sept. 2023. 304p. ISBN 9781728276793. pap. $16.99. PARANORMAL ROMANCE
Feeling unmoored after losing her mother and the latest in a long string of jobs, Riley Everett accepts an invitation from her long-lost aunt to visit the family home, Shaddow House, on Starfall Point, a quaint town on a small island off the coast of Michigan. While on the ferry, Riley meets Edison Held, the town’s hot single librarian, and proceeds to throw up on his shoes. When she arrives at Starfall, things immediately aren’t as expected: her aunt passed away days earlier and left stewardship of the house to Riley. Then Riley finds that the house is full of ghosts and that she has magic in her blood. Her newly realized witch powers allow her to guide the lost ghosts. As Riley embraces her magic and responsibilities to the spirits she encounters, she begins to find herself and maybe a happily-ever-after in the process. While Edison doesn’t stand out as a love interest, multiple quirky side characters add to the story, as does the fascinating Shaddow House.
VERDICT Previously only available as an Audible Original, this series launch from Harper (A Farewell to Charms) will appeal to readers who enjoy witchy paranormal romance.
