A brilliantly written novel. I love small southern town settings and this one was wonderful. The writing as solid and vivid, easy and clear to picture what was going on. The characters were great and leapt to life right off the page. I loved the way the magic element worked with Storie's witch powers. Some really interesting world building towards the end of the novel as more the magic world was revealed. The heat between Storie and Reid was sizzling with a great will they won't they push and pull. From their initial meeting when they were teens to meeting again as adults, they had awesome chemistry and I loved watching them figure each other out and get around their own personal issues.All in all a fantastic read.
