Bernice is a witch with many skeletons in her closet. She has an addictive personality, works as a holistic therapist, and struggles to maintain any intimate relationships. Her spells are not always as accurate as they could be, often the result of her having a few too many goblets of red wine.
When mysterious letters start appearing at her door, she begins to think about her childhood and, with the help of her long-suffering friend Maggie, tries to come to terms with her past and the family she left behind. But nothing in Bernice's life is ever simple...
I received this book for free in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.
I thought this was going to be a fun and light hearted paranormal romp, but I DNF’d at the halfway mark because I just felt super lost. I couldn’t tell what the main plot was, or where it was going, and with quite a few POV narrations, everything felt super busy.
What little I did understand, felt less like a paranormal story, and more like a literary character based drama. There was no magic or witchcraft used, and the focus seemed more on the messy and complicated lives of the people involved.
Unfortunately, I couldn’t get into the story as my expectations were noy matching my experience, and without a clear direction to the plot, the book just felt too busy.
