Review - Deceiving the Witch Next Door

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…

My review:

This was a fun quick read.  Storie and Reid have had chemistry between them from the moment they first came together the night Storie left town after high school.  Now years later she is back to start over and build a successful business in her hometown.  

Reid cant wait to get out of town for good.  But he is currently stuck there trying to help his father.  Until he can find what his father needs he is not free to leave.  He is convinced the secret lies in Storie's new shop and does whatever he can to try and find it.

Its fun watching them fight, and try to avoid the attraction that is mutual between them.  We get to watch their characters develop and change over the course of the story which works out very well even though this is shorter than a standard novel.  Even when twists and turns get thrown in, the characters are believable in their actions.  

Even the secondary characters are interesting from the best friend that moves back with Storie to help her build the business to Storie's unknown family that she meets for the first time in the book.  You can tell there are quite a few stories out there still if the author decides to share them. 

If you are looking for a quick, fun paranormal with some heat and conflict pick this one up.
