PAYBACK'S A WITCH by Lana Harper


Payback's a Witch (The Witches of Thistle Grove, #1)Payback's a Witch by Lana Harper
My rating: 2 of 5 stars

This book sounded like the perfect read to me because I love witchy tales. But pretty early on, I realised it really wasn't. I wanted to love this story so much, but I was bored so often that I couldn't get into the swing of things. 😩

Emmy is a witch who returns to her hometown for an upcoming spellcasting tournament and finds so much more...

See, this sounds like something I would totally enjoy because there was witchy and Halloween vibes everywhere. But the tournament stuff was so dull I ended up skimming most of it. The romance between Emmy and Talia started out promising before that also paled eventually. And the interactions between characters didn't seem sincere.

I don't know. I really struggled to get through this. Really didn't click with this story and would probably have enjoyed it a lot more if the focus was mainly on the Emmy and Talia connection, rather than the yawnfest that was the tournament and the founder family politics.

The Halloweeny atmosphere was probably my favourite bit. But even that seemed to get crowded by too much of everything.

Oh well.
