REVIEW: The Very Secret Society of Irregular Witches

Mika is a witch who was raised with all the rules of witchery. She can make potions and cast spells but knows how important it is that no one discovers she is a witch. So she moves around a lot and doesn’t really have much of a career other than pretending to do witchy things on the internet. When she is contacted out of the blue for a job, she finds herself in a quirky home with a gay couple, a spinster, a grumpy librarian and three child witches. Cue the magical antics, an enemies to lovers romance and a chance to discover acceptance.

This one was cute. But perhaps a bit too saccharine and predictable for me. I liked the magical lessons  and potions but wanted more of that. The major challenge for the characters was solved in exactly the way I thought it would. I appreciate a romcom with serious diversity and morally sound characters but I just need a little more action and mystery than I got with this one. Perhaps a bit more detail about what would happen to the witches if they were caught? That was a big looming issue but we got no answer as to what would actually happen if anyone discovered a witch. An enjoyable read but not something that will stick with me long term. I think most will gush over it though, it is sweet and fun.

Thanks to Berkley via Netgalley for access to this novel. All opinions above are my own.
