In this humorous urban fantasy, Holly has been mortal all her life. Now at thirty-eight, her fairy godfather arrives to tell her she's a witch, and suddenly she's having to come to terms with the uncertainties of an alarmingly magic-fuelled world. Magic is not like it is in the books and films, and Holly starts to doubt whether her fairy godfather, Partridge Mayflower, is the fey, avuncular charmer he appears.
As a new romance blooms, appearances become magically deceptive, and Holly can't afford to trust those closest to her, including herself. Accidents start to happen, people die, Old Magic is on the hunt, but in the age-old game of cat and mouse, just who is the feline and who is the rodent?
An unusual take on the fantasy chick lit genre, Witchlight is no ordinary paranormal romance, and Holly is no ordinary witch. J.S. Watt proves that wonder, magic -- and love -- wait around the corner at every stage in life. And just when we think we have it all figured out, fate sets us on another unexpected adventure and has us fighting to protect our own."Holly girl, you are all too human, I can assure you. Prickly and awkward and human, because that's what witches are -- human, that is. Not necessarily the prickly and annoying bit. That's just you."
Fans of strong female characters in a magical world -- like Terry Pratchett's Granny Weatherwax and Tiffany Aching, or J.K. Rowling's Professor Minerva McGonagall and Hermione Granger -- will love Holly Jepps in Witchlight."I was a fan of Holly from the first page." - GoodReads ReviewerBuy now and get a free Kindle book with paperback via Kindle Matchbook.
