Josephine’s #CBR5 Review #67 : The Language of Spells by Sarah Painter

This is essentially a common all garden chick lit romance but with a supernatural (or should that be preternatural?) element. As…



“Gwen Harper left Pendleford thirteen years ago and hasn’t looked back. Until an inheritance throws her into the mystical world she thought she’d escaped. Confronted with her great-aunt’s legacy Gwen must finally face up to her past.

The magic she has long tried to suppress is back with a vengeance but gift or burden, for Gwen, it always spells trouble. She has to stay – she has nowhere else to go – but how can she find her place in the town that drove her out after branding her a witch…?”

And it is not half bad! I wasn’t spellbound (boom boom) but I enjoyed it and the characterisation is better than some long established writers I have read.
