Welsh Week: Something Wicked by Louise Marley - Review & Giveaway

Evil can be tempting …

Katrina Davenport has opened a coffee shop and bookstore in the notorious Raven’s Cottage, once the home of a 17th century witch known as Magik Meg. The locals have told Kat stories, of how the cottage is haunted by the witch and her demon lover, but Kat doesn’t believe in witches, or ghosts, or anything that goes bump in the dead of night. Every strange thing that happened since she moved in must have a perfectly logical explanation.

Unfortunately it doesn’t really matter what Kat believes, because something wicked has returned to Raven’s Cottage.

And this time it’s come for Kat.

Review

Kat has inherited a cottage in Buckley. There's a coffee shop and a bookstore she can take over. The village thrives on the legend of Magik Meg, who was believed to be a witch. Kat's cottage is supposed to be haunted, but she doesn't really believe that it's Meg who's haunting her. Strange things keep happening and even though there must be a logical explanation for everything Kat doesn't know what it is yet. There's something she's supposed to remember, but her memory keeps playing tricks with her. Will someone be able to help her or does she have to figure it out on her own and is the cottage a safe place to be?

Something Wicked is a story about two strong women. Kat's new home is in Meg's old cottage. I loved it that Louise Marley told both of their stories. This is such a wonderful book. Who can these women trust? Something evil has happened, but what was it? I couldn't wait to find out. I liked this story a lot and read it in one sitting. It's very well written and the past has been cleverly combined and intertwined with the present. I highly recommend this novella, it's fabulous.

  3. Yes I do believe in witches because I have met a real witch in person. I don't believe witches have magical powers, I don't believe they can cast spells or have any magical powers, but witches do exist, that is undeniable. There are many people who practise witchcraft but these people are usually secretive for fear of being victimised.

  9. Hello! Your pinterest photos inspire creativity and fantasy. My page is very practical ideas. I guess I need a vacation every now and then. I went to art school and was raised by a mom who wrote. Yes as an adult I have no imagination or creative spark anymore. Sad but true. Anyways your books look like a mental health vacation fantasy. Best of Luck!

  13. I don't believe in witches. I know there are people who believe they are witches and that is their choice. I do, however believe in magic. Not the spell kind, or the magic wand kind, but the kind when something so special happens, that you just know God had a hand in it.

  25. No such thing but yes to the herbs and remedies. Just how the wise woman (or man!) was identified before doctors. Much the same way people still believe in a higher being even without any proof.
