Publisher Description

The follow-up to Erin Sterling’s New York Times bestselling hit The Ex Hex features fan favorite Gwyn and the spine-tinglingly handsome Wells Penhallow as they battle a new band of witches and their own magical chemistry.

Gwyn Jones is perfectly happy with her life in Graves Glen. She, her mom, and her cousin have formed a new and powerful coven; she’s running a successful witchcraft shop, Something Wicked; and she’s started mentoring some of the younger witches in town. As Halloween approaches, there’s only one problem—Llewellyn “Wells” Penhallow.

Wells has come to Graves Glen to re-establish his family’s connection to the town they founded as well as to make a new life for himself after years of being the dutiful son in Wales. When he opens up a shop of his own, Penhallow’s, just across the street from Something Wicked, he quickly learns he’s gotten more than he bargained for in going up against Gwyn.

When their professional competition leads to a very personal—and very hot—kiss, both Wells and Gwyn are determined to stay away from each other, convinced the kiss was just a magical fluke. But when a mysterious new coven of witches come to town and Gwyn’s powers begin fading, she and Wells must work together to figure out just what these new witches want and how to restore Gwyn’s magic before it’s too late.

Smiling Face with Heart-Eyes“This was so cute, fast paced and just so cozy. Loved the characters and it was honestly just so cozy it reminded me of a witchy hallmark movie, just had those vibes. Very low stakes with a grumpy/sunshine couple.”

Expressionless Face“if you want a halloween-ish romcom that’s just vibes then i guess pick this one? but for me, the characters were flat and i simply didn’t care about the romance or either of the subplots. i did, however, enjoy the “baby witches” and i liked the atmosphere of the town. picking up the third one in the series, now due out in 2024, won’t be a high priority for me.”

Expressionless Face“I was not a fan of this book personally although I don’t think it was an awful read. It just wasn’t for me. I feel like this would be more suitable for young teens. The plot was just really messy in my opinion and it was really difficult to follow along”
