Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble
The Barnes & Noble Review
Annette Blair cooks up an extra helping of entertainment in her first contemporary romance, a sexy comedy set in Salem, Massachusetts. Sedate single dad Logan Kilgarven is somehow bewitched into helping his lovely downstairs neighbor, Melody Seabright, get her own cooking show at his TV station. How did that happen? Melody can't even cook. In her hands, potatoes lump, gravy boils over, and chicken explodes. Still, she's got showmanship, and the general manager can practically taste syndication when her show, The Kitchen Witch, takes off. Even as the boss's daughter sets her sights on Logan, he and Melody are making some hot magic of their own. Sure, opposites attract, but can they last? Readers will love this classic story of attraction between pinstripes and polka dots. Ginger Curwen

    Romantic, sexy, laugh out loud fun!

    Since half of Salem thinks Melody Seabright is a witch anyway, she trades babysitting for a shot at an interview for a TV cooking show, thinks up the title 'The Kitchen Witch' and uses sex appeal and a great deal of smoke and mirrors magic to land herself the job. Her producer, for whom she babysat, is shocked. Sure he got her the interview, but since she can't cook a bean, he was certain she'd blow it. Her audience falls in love with the new Kitchen Witch, because of her with and charm under fire, literally, but between exploding poultry and flaming roasts, the station owner demands that she get some cooking lessons or she and her producer are finished. Logan Kilgarven, her upstairs neighbor and father to the adorable Shane is the producer who's job is in jeopardy with hers, so he teaches her to cook--and cook they do, from the beginning, in and out of the kitchen. The Kitchen Witch has everything you want in a romantic comedy, plus the warmth of family and generosity of spirit.

    bewitching fun tale

    In Salem, Massachusetts WHCH TV executive producer Logan Kilgarven needs a babysitter to watch over his four year old son Shane; the introverted child was recently dumped on his father by the kid¿s mother. Desperate, Logan asks neighbor Melody Seabright to baby-sit, but she refuses because she needs to find a job to pay the rent having recently lost her tour guide position for placing a ¿curse¿ on a patron. Logan offers Melody an opportunity for an interview with his ice cold boss if she watches Shane; she agrees. Shane and Melody have a great time together as she proves to be a disastrous cook. To Logan¿s shock Melody gets the job as host of a cooking show though she cannot boil water without destroying the environment. Even more stunning, her show is a success as her bubbly personality as the ¿Cooking Witch¿ becomes very popular to viewers. Even more shocking at least to Logan is that she has charmed both male Kilgarvens who love her and want her magic to charm them forever. This bewitching contemporary romance is a fine tale that readers will enjoy as Melody is a delightful protagonist who beguiles the three men in her life (the Kilgarven males and her boss at the station) as much as she does the audience. Although Shane is a bit to precocious for a deserted infant, fans will appreciate his antics anyway. THE KITCHEN WITCH is a bewitching fun tale. Harriet Klausner

    Kitchen Witch

    Is Mel Seabright a witch? Perhaps, but one thing she is not. is a cook. When she agrees to forgo a job interview to babysit Logan's charmer of a son, Shane, Melody coerces him into letting her interview for a cooking show host position, despite the fact that she can't boil water and her culinary efforts are stomach twisting. Despite this drawback, Mel seems to work a spell on the Ice Man, Logan's boss, melting his heart into giving her the job. Even when her first efforts are blackened ham, and she wasn't going for Cajun cookery, she manages to win the audience and keep her job. It can only help that Logan's fallen under her lovespell, but he has baggage standing between him and happiness. It will take more than magic to win his heart. ....................... **** If you hope for a paranormal for Halloween, buy another book, but buy this one too. Kitchen Witch is charming and sweet, sometimes steamy, but always fun. ****

    This is a good book if you are looking for a light, quick read. However, Annette needs to find a new editor. If I noticed typos and the incorrect tenses or words being used, you know it's sloppy. Still a cute story.

    This is not a mystery, so I don't recommend it for fans of the Maddie Cutler (Vintage Magic) Series.

    Disappointing. I kept waiting for the mystery and realized the real mystery was why I bought it.

    Great Series

    I love Annette Blair. The book was good and funny. She introduces a lot of charcaters that will be in other books. This is a good book but not my favorite in the series

    I needed something a little different a this was it ....

    I don't often read romances anymore (I have read tons), but I was looking for something a little different and light hearted. The Kitchen Witch sounded like a romantic comedy and was just that with a few twists and a little spice. Enjoyable and I will read more of the series when I am in this mood again - I already have the first one in Ms. Blair's other witch series waiting for me. Plus I have read the first book in her new vintage series - A Veiled Deception.

    Sexy and Bewitching

    Loved the characters in this sexy as can get book! I laughed out loud and couldn't put the book down. Highly recommended for sexual satisfaction, but NOT for witchcraft, which was sadly missing. Can't wait to read the other two books in the trilogy.

    A magically bewitching tale!

    I really enjoyed this book. It was better then I thought it would be and I didn't want to stop reading it. It is a romance that's for sure it's saucy, sexy, and very funny. Highly recommended!

    A spicy, comical romance.

    Logan Kilgarven and his four-year-old son, Shane, move to Salem, Massachusetts. (Logan had grown up in Salem as a bad boy until Judge Jessie Harris set him straight.) Logan knows that Salem is the perfect place to raise his son, under the watchful eyes of Jessie (now retired and giving cemetery tours, since Halloween nears) and his mother, Phyllis. Logan has already been hired by the TV station WHCH and is their new executive producer. Everything is looking up as Logan vows to put Shane's welfare above everything else in his life. What Logan did not expect was his sexy downstairs neighbor, rumored witch Melody Seabright. ...................... With absolutely zero notice, Mel agrees to watch Shane so Logan may rush off to his first day of work. In return, Logan got Mel an interview with his boss, Max Peabody, for the star position on a new cooking show. Big problem is that Melody cannot even boil water or crack an egg without a disaster happening. But Melody knows how to play to an audience and becomes Salem's favorite magical cook on the new show 'The Kitchen Witch'! .................. ***** Add Tiffany, the station owner's spoiled daughter, into the mix for some spice. Blend with some lovable secondary characters, two playful kittens, and a dash of magic. Then bake the two main characters until they look ready to explode. When it all comes out, you will find this dish to be one hot and hilarious romp, guaranteed to satisfy! HIGHLY RECOMMENDED! *****
