Today on Witchin’ Reads, we’re featuring…me!
First, a few spooky questions.
What is your favorite thing about Halloween? The sense of possibility (and safe fear) that waits in a haunted house or on a dark October night. I love to be scared…within reason!
What is your favorite witchy movie or book? Bedknobs and Broomsticks for movie, and my favorite witchy book right now is a picture book from my childhood called Winnie the Witch.
Best Halloween costume ever: Is it cliché to say witch? There are just so many ways to accessorize a point hat!
Book: The Secret of Isobel Key
About the Book:
Lou is in the middle of a quarter-life crisis. Fresh out of college, she’s unemployed and unsure of herself. But when she gets the chance to escape to Scotland with her best friend, it could be the answer to her quest for self-discovery. The trip is not at all what she expected, especially when her tour guide turns out to be the dreamy historian Brian, and together they embark on a hunt for information about Isobel Key, a woman accused of witchcraft in the seventeenth century.
They set out to learn the truth of the condemned witch, but Lou isn’t prepared for the knowledge that awaits her. She must face her own demons if she has any hope of righting the wrongs of the past.
Flashing between seventeenth century Scotland and a contemporary romance, THE SECRET OF ISOBEL KEY is a mystery that will please readers of all ages.
