Lovespell by Brina Courtney
Nine months ago, Teagan Matthews' boyfriend disappeared and took her sense of stability with him. But when the opportunity to live with her aging grandmother in Salem arises, she decides it's time to get on with her life. A new home, new job, and new friends are adding up to a beautiful summer...
...until a young girl's body shows up one night in town, wearing a pentagram necklace exactly like Teagan's.
(Synopsis from Goodreads).
Recently, I've been in the mood to read more paranormal books. I used to love the genre when I was younger, but unfortunately I haven't read many in the past few years. With all of the amazing books coming out on a daily basis, it can be easy to overlook a specific genre, which is what I had been unintentionally doing. I've had Lovespell by Brina Courtney on my tbr for a long time, and recently decided to try it. I'm kicking myself for not reading it sooner. I loved it so much.
I will admit, Lovespell did have a slow start. for the first chapter or so, I was really bored. Then, as soon as Teagen goes to her grandmother's home, I was hooked. I loved everything about the book. I fell in love with the characters. Each had unique personalities. I wanted to learn more about every one of them. I even liked Seth, which is weird because I typically don't care for characters that share my husband's name. It makes the book awkward to read because I picture him in my mind. This time, I liked it though. Even though the book it had a lot of world building, it didn't drag like most first books in a series. It kept me captivated the whole way through. I flew through the book because I couldn't stop reading. I needed to know what was going to happen next.
Lovespell is definitely one of my favorite books I've read this year. Other than the slow start, I loved everything about it. Unfortunately, I haven't been able to find this book on Amazon, which is a shame. I want to read the rest of the series, and I can't find it. I need to know what happens next after that crazy cliffhanger ending. If I do find it, or the author re-releases the books, I will be binge reading the rest of the series. I can't wait to read more of Brina Courtney's books. I love her writing.
I give Lovespell: 4/5.
