Soul of the Witch (Witches of Keating Hollow, Book 1) by Deanna Chase

Welcome to Keating Hollow, the village full of love, magic, and cupcakes, and where nothing is more important than family.

At age eighteen, after a potion tragically backfired, Abby Townsend left Keating Hollow and her magic behind to find redemption. Ten years later, after being summoned by her family, she's back. As soon as she drives into town, she's already plotting her inevitable exit, but she can't quite escape the pull of the tightly knit magical community or the soulful gaze of the one man she's never forgotten. And when an eight-year old witch not only leads her back to her magic, but also steals her heart, Abby's about to learn what it means to embrace the soul of a witch. Are you ready for magic, love, and friendship?

Soul of the Witch by Deanna Chase is the first installment in the Witches of Keating Hollow series. Abigail “Abby” Townsend is returning home to Keating Hollow after receiving news that her father, Lincoln has cancer. It has been ten years since Abby left after the death of her best friend, Charlotte. Abby has felt guilty since that day and has not created a potion since then. Abby arrives in town and is surprised when she sees Clay Garrison outside Townsend’s Keating Hollow Brewery which is owned by her father. She wishes to avoid him since Abby does not look her best but ends up in an accident which brings him over immediately (of course). The attraction between Clay and Abigail is palpable. Abby knows a relationship is not possible since she has no intention of staying in Keating Hollow. Clay has just gotten out of a bad marriage and has his eight-year-old daughter, Olive to consider. Lincoln is ill from the chemotherapy and none of the potions they have obtained are helping. Abby wants to alleviate his symptoms, but her magic is blocked. What will it take for Abby to have full use of her powers again? Clay has the fight of his life before him. His ex-wife has decided to seek custody of Olive, and Clay will need his wits about him if he to win this battle to keep Olive safe. Can Abby overcome the past, so she can have a bright future? Come along to Keating Hollow to find out what happens with Clay, Abby and Olive in this magical tale. Soul of the Witch is the story of witches, family, friendship, magic, guilt, tragedy, lost love, forgiveness and so much more. The Townsend family has four girls: Faith, Noel, Yvette and Abby who were raised by their father, Lincoln. Soul of the Witch focuses on Abby. The point-of-view alternates between Abby and Clay. I like that we get to see things from each character’s perspective. Soul of the Witch is well written and has a steady pace. The story contains great characters with my favorites being Daisy and Olive. Val is the villain of the story and she adds drama (one of those characters that you love to dislike). It allows readers to see what Clay will do to protect his daughter (we get to see his core beliefs). Abby is a complex character. She has been living in New Orleans where she earns a living creating soaps and lotions infused with a touch of magic as well as selling her art. Abby has a boyfriend who has become focused on himself (his career and how Abby can help him succeed). She needs to understand what exactly happened ten years ago which means talking to Charlotte’s mother. To move forward with her life, Abby needs to forgive herself. Keating Hollow is a small town where everyone knows your business. The descriptions of the delectable delights available at A Spoon Full of Magic will have your mouth watering and wishing you could transport yourself into the story. For those of you that enjoy alcoholic beverages, there are some creative brews available at Townsend’s Keating Hollow Brewery (I am amazed at the various flavors). My only negative comment is there is some predictability. Soul of the Witch is a charming paranormal romance novel. My rating for Soul of the Witch is 4 out of 5 stars (I liked it). There is a scene near the end that will just melt your heart (one of those “ahhhh” moments). It is a heartwarming, magical story that will delight fans of Denna Chase. Heart of the Witch is the next book in Witches of Keating Hollow series.

WOW!! This is one of the best books I have read in ages. It's very interesting characters have exceedingly insightful experiences throughout this story. Abby, the main character, learns not to be afraid of the past. Clay, her boyfriend from the past faces hard decisions, too. I love the way Deanna Chase has written this story with love, understanding and sensitivity. This book is well plotted and has humor as well as witches and magic. I was just pulled right into the story. I highly recommend this book and am totally looking forward to the next book in the series!!

This was such a light, cute and quick read. I didn’t anticipate liking it as much as I did. When Abby gets the call that her dad is sick, she heads back home where she hasn’t been in years. She encounters family, old friends, an old love and must face the reason she left in the first place. I thought this was a great first book to the new series. All the characters are relatable, and some are just down right funny. Wanda is a hoot in her tricked-out party cart. This book is a wonderful paranormal romance. The magic is a big part of the book, but it doesn’t feel forced. It flows with the storyline and just makes the people and the town seem even more magical and real. I can’t say enough about this story. Thoroughly enjoyed it. Looking forward to the next book.

Ms. Chase is one of the authors I read frequently, and lately she has put out a few books close to each other. Because of this, when I started reading this book, I have to admit I wasn’t exactly sure what the book was about. It really didn’t even matter. I was drawn in immediately when I started reading it, and I was captivated with the world of Abby Townsend. She was such a caring, wounded soul, and I just loved the way Ms. Chase showed how the love of friends, family, and neighbors can heal many wounds. This was such a sweet, tender book with friendship, romance, and a sense of closeness between people. I admit to crying at the end. Yes, there was a little bit of paranormal in this book, but please don’t let that turn you off of this book if you aren’t into that as it’s such a small part of the overall plot. If you love a book that is warm, tender, full of romance, friendship, fun, and personality, give this a try. Ms. Chase is a master of words no matter the genre she writes in! Highly recommend! I was provided the e-book which I reviewed voluntarily.
