Reader fans of Chick Lit and the television series “Sex & The City” will enjoy this romantic -- though quirky --foray into an anthology touched with just a bit of the paranormal. Each story has a modern day witch heroine looking for love in all the wrong places and then finding it in the least expected places.

In THE TROUBLE WITH WITCHCRAFT by Holly Chamberlin, we meet less-than-adequate spell-caster Haven Castle. Love spells aren’t her forte and she’s got proof: the last time she cast a love spell it went alarmingly awry. Poor Jared Cragmere didn’t stand a chance! But second chances are a part of life and now Jared’s back with a grudge poor Haven knows has her name all over it. What’s going to happen when Jared ---- now smitten with Haven --- finds out she was the witch that cast that disastrous spell so long ago? Will true love conquer all?

In SINGLE WHITE WITCH by Carly Alexander, tired-of-being-single witch Annie Quicksilver is nonetheless hesitant to get involved with a warlock --- too many complications there. So in desperation to find her true love, Annie decides to check out mortal men. But, things don’t go as smoothly as she hopes when she has the unfortunate luck to meet only the “crap-of-the-crop” instead of the “cream”! Imagine her surprise when she – finally – discovers that Simon McAllister was just the man she’d been searching for. And Simon has a secret that’s going to surprise her even more!

In THE WITCH’S GUIDE TO LIFE, by Theresa Allen, brings to the point the theme of all three stories: “Even witches have trouble meeting Mr. Right.”. Ariel Merrill is an artist who meets “Mr. Hunk” and experiences a whirlwind of events that even the best of witches couldn’t have foreseen. Casting a “love and happiness” spell for her sister, Ariel never suspects the change of events in her and her sister’s lives when the result of the spell happens. Love and Fate are hard at work, and determine to give both sisters their well deserved happily-ever-after.

A fun, “different” read, this anthology will no doubt delight readers of several genres, and bring each author new fans.
