Sweet Spark: I love witch stories!
Augusta Podos has lived in Salem, MA her whole life. She has been at her job as a tour guide for the old jail for too long. It seemed close to her history educational background, but she can't stand all the tourists who only want to know what the jail had to do with the witch trials (the answer is: nothing). She interviews for a more professional position at the nearby Harlowe House with little confidence in her chances to get a history job with some substance, but the job is soon hers.
No one wants to give up their dream job over feeling a little funky from time to time, right? The house has a lot of history, so of course there are a few weird vibes. As her whole life changes, she isn't sure if the job is what's bringing about the new circumstances, or if it's part of the natural progression of her life.
This was a fun story with an interesting twist toward the end. I liked Augusta's character, but there were some supporting characters I was really fond of too. As I've said before, I'm always up for a good witchy story, and I hope this isn't the last one from this debut author. I gave this 4 out of 5 stars and didn't want it to end.
Thanks to the publisher and Netgalley for my advance electronic copy of this book. Receiving the book for free did not influence my review.
