Weekend Book Club: Witch in the House

I recently did an online workshop on Witchcraft for the Paranormal Author, which I found immensely helpful and intriguing.

The facilitator recommended many books and this was one of them, accurately portraying a witch.

Thanks to a speedy Book Depository delivery, I dived into WITCH IN THE HOUSE (Avon books, 2007).

Here's the blurb:

Jade Delarue is determined to find the man of her dreams, so the sexy witch casts a spell that brings a gorgeous man to her door. But private detective Mason Kincaid isn't looking for love. Jilted by his last girlfriend, Mason's thrown himself into his work. He's visiting Jade on official business, and not even the blizzard raging outside her house—or her spellbinding beauty—can distract him.

Then Jade realizes the mistake she's made in her spell, and she wants him gone. But there are charms to spare in Mystic Manor, showing Mason that the witch in the house might be the woman he's been waiting for. Convincing her, though, means coming up with a little magic of his own.

This book is purely character driven.
Jade and Mason are wonderful characters that made me keep reading through a trite, sluggish plot.

I adored the banter between them, really smashing dialogue.

And the heat these two generated...phew!

The witchcraft angle was superb throughout and very informative.

What are you reading this weekend?

Between fighting computers and crashes and whatever, been trying to read Jane Goes Batty by Michael Thomas Ford. I'm not a big paranormal fan, but hey, it's Jane Austen, who can argue with that. LOL

Bummer on the computer crashes, Lois.

What a pain!

Hope it gets resolved quickly.
