A common FAQ: “How do you pronounce her last name?”
Answer: Think “Bower” or “Thow-er”. It’s Persian!
This book was very different for me. After requesting a review copy from Xpresso Book Tours, I kind of thought to myself “What have you gotten yourself into?”. Not in a necessarily bad way, because that is one heck of a synopsis. But it was the fear of trying something new.
Tish Thawer’s WITCHES OF BLACKBROOK was intriguing from the beginning. I’m a huge fan of the paranormal novels (obviously, since I’m writing in that genre), but something about her teasers scared me a bit. So once I cracked open that first page, I was relieved to find that it wasn’t going to be so horribly dark that I couldn’t stand it. Let’s face it, some of the witchy books can get a little…too much sometimes.
There was a great balance in this book with lighthearted humor, suspense, mystery, romance, and friendship. I found myself constantly questioning what would happen next, which is always a great sign. Although I had guessed what would happen (because of the synopsis), I loved finding the twists and turns as they came along.
The characters were very strong. I enjoyed Trin despite her sometimes bland personality. She was strong, loyal, and loving. For her to encounter what she did and still come out of it as herself is pretty revealing of her character. Seeing the different flashbacks and understanding the characters was essential, and I think that Tish did a really great job of revealing just enough each time.
I wouldn’t call this book too much of a ‘steamy romance’. There are romance elements, but it primarily focuses on the suspense and story-line. Not necessarily a bad thing, since I LOVE a good story-line. But I just think it’s essential some of my readers know it because I read a lot of steamy romance lol.
Overall, WITCHES OF BLACKBROOK was a very interesting read, and I would recommend it to my readers who enjoy a great paranormal story-line with lots of revealing plot twists.
