I hosted a guest post by Jessica Gibson earlier this month, and it had me curious. I wanted to find out more about her witchy books, so when Enchanted Book Promotions said they had a spare stop for me to review the book, I was thrilled.
I started with Chasing The Witch because I didn’t have time to read both books before the due date. However, I’m glad I started here. The book is easy to follow, even if – like me – you haven’t read Mark of The Witch. It’s about two sisters, Jilly and Caroline, who are both witches. Jilly is the most powerful one of them both, and the one most eager to accept her powers. Caroline is more reluctant to accept them. Jilly is dating Will, and they’re a match made in heaven. Caroline is just about to divorce her husband Jack when the book starts.
I don’t want to give too much away. Will’s evil brother Patrick pops up to wreak some havoc, causing tension to run high between everyone, most importantly Caroline and Jilly. An ancient vampire ventures onto the scene as well, disrupting everyone’s lives. There’s more to Caroline and Jilly than just their witch powers, but if you want to find out what, well then you’ll have to read the book!
I loved Jilly. She had a great, vibrant, cheerful personality. Caroline was a little more gloomy, and at times I got really annoyed at her. However, they both match well as sisters, each side of the spectrum. I also liked the love interests in this book. They’re not one-dimensional, like in some other paranormal romance novels. They have emotions and feelings and a history. Even the villains had history, which was a nice surprise.
The plot moved along nicely, and the book itself was written well. I enjoyed it from start to end.
