Book Review: Cloudy with a Chance of Witchcraft by Mandy M Roth


Book Description

When it rains, it pours...and sometimes love finds you even when you can’t find yourself.

Fate has given me a second chance at the happiness I once knew in the odd Southern town of Grimm Cove. But only if I can come to terms with some rather eye-opening revelations. Supernaturals are a real thing. I'm a witch. My high school sweetheart, who happens to be the Chief of Police in Grimm Cove, is my fated mate and a wolf-shifter. Ghosts exist and can be very nosy and meddlesome. Someone is murdering witches left and right. And last but not least, my ex-husband's barely legal arm candy is taking fatal attraction to new levels of Hell.

I'm no shrinking violet, and with the help of my best friends, I'm going to live life on my terms--come Hell, high water, or magikal mishaps.

My Review

Poppy gets the shock of her life when her husband of 20 years tells her he wants a divorce and he's already moving on with his much younger girlfriend. After she gets over that shock and finally settles the divorce, she moves to Grimm Cove where her grandparents had left her a house. 

Brett is a wolf shifter, he was Poppy's first love but he broke her heart and to make matter worse he wrote her a letter telling her he never wanted to see her again. So she moved on with her now ex husband. But Brett never stopped looking out for her. 

When Poppy has a small accident on her way into Grimm Cove, the first person she runs into is Brett but she can barely believe that this muscular hunk is her first love. He is shocked that she is divorced and moving back into her grandparents house and because he wants to make sure he doesn't mess up a second chance with her, he let's her know he didn't mean anything that he said in the letter he wrote her all those years ago. He can't explain more right away because telling her that he's a wolf shifter might be a little much right away. 

Poppy enlisted the help of her two best friends who just happen to be a little more than they appear to be as well. But the entire town of Grimm Cove is pretty much some kind of Supernatural and she fits right in as she finds out she's a witch. We can't forget the ghosts that also make themselves know along the way. That was fun.

When weird things start happening and she has to start believing in magic and supernaturals, things start to make more sense to her. But there's more shocking news from her now ex husband when he calls to warn her about danger she might be in. It was so sweet to watch Brett and Poppy get to know each other again, fall for each other and finally have all the secrets between them come out. 

Poppy's friends are great so it was fun watching them interact with some of Brett's friends. I see more relationships forming in the future. This book ended pretty fast with everything wrapping up within a few pages at the end but the story was great. 

I give this book 4 out of 5 stars.
