Summary

She found magic in the most unlikely of places.

A cosy, heartwarming and uplifting magical romance about an isolated witch whose opportunity to embrace a quirky new family—and a new love—changes the course of her life.

As one of the few witches in Britain, Mika Moon has lived her life by three rules: hide your magic, keep your head down, and stay away from other witches. An orphan raised by strangers from a young age, Mika is good at being alone, and she doesn't mind it...mostly.

But then an unexpected message arrives, begging her to travel to the remote and mysterious Nowhere House to teach three young witches, and Mika jumps at the chance for a different life.

Nowhere House is nothing like she expects, and she's quickly tangled up in the lives and secrets of its quirky, caring inhabitants...and Jamie, the handsome, prickly librarian who would do anything to protect his charges, and who sees Mika's arrival as a threat. An irritatingly appealing threat.

As Mika finds her feet, the thought of belonging somewhere starts to feel like a real possibility. But magic isn't the only danger in the world, and soon Mika will need to decide whether to risk everything to protect the found family she didn't know she was looking for....

Loved every minute of it

After 4 psychological thrillers in a row and a reread of Tales of the Mayfair Witches before that I was ready for something fluffy, lovely and magical. This delivered on all fronts. I'm hoping this becomes a series and I get to witness the little witches of Nowhere House grow up 💜💜💜

Delightful and wholesome

Loved the performance and the gentle writing. But I wished it had focused more on taking care of the kids than the romance.

It's a romance

I was excited about the whole witch in modern day Britain concept, as well as the idea of the protagonist being thrown into looking after 3 young witches in secret. I was rather disappointed to find that it was basically a generic romance, with a bit of found family. The magic, and the child witches were basically just a bit of backstory and to add a bit of drama to the romance. If you're looking for run of the mill romance it's probably fine, I was hoping for more swashbuckling magical adventure, and that was certainly not what this book delivered. The narrator was excellent though.

Fun read, charming story

Loved the story overall. Was a little disappointed that I had guessed some of the ending.

The northern Irish accent was paiiiiiinful which is a pity cause the performance was so good otherwise!
