Review of Merry Little Wishing Spritz by Cherie Colyer


Welcome to the book blast for Merry Little Wishing Spritz, a delightful holiday paranormal romance by Cherie Colyer. Keep reading for a peek inside the story and my book review! Follow the tour for even more. And best of luck entering the giveaway!

Modern-day witch Cassie Moore’s cozy life turns upside down when her friend foresees the wrecking ball that threatens to destroy Cassie’s home and workplace. But Cassie isn’t giving up without a fight. She casts a well-intended spell meant to save her apartment and her job. But magic is unpredictable, especially when her friend casts a little charm of her own that has Cassie lusting after the man she desperately wants to despise.

Jack Quinn has had his eyes on Lakeside Books for years, and he couldn’t be happier the owner is finally ready to sell. He has big plans for the cozy waterfront property, but he didn’t expect to care about the store or its employees. And he never imagined he’d be drawn to a certain brown-eyed saleswoman.

Almost as if by magic.

Read an excerpt:
Jack tucked the midnight blue candle under his arm and picked up one of the beaded bracelets.

“The magnetite stones help to ground the wearer,” I said.

“Do you believe in that sort of thing?”

I nodded. A person didn’t have to be a witch to believe gems, stones, and herbs had mystical properties. He rolled the black beads between his fingers. “Magnetite also attracts love, loyalty, and commitment, if I remember correctly.”

“You’re right,” I said, amazed he knew the property of the stone.

He held onto the bracelet and wandered to the suspense sections.

I followed. “If you buy Lakeside Books—”
His gaze met mine, one eyebrow hiked. “ ‘If’?”
My fingers trailed over the nicked shelves as I walked. “Now that word is out the store is for sale, you might not be the only one interested in purchasing it.”

The corners of his mouth curved into a smug smirk, implying he wasn’t worried. Would he up his offer if I countered? Jack reached for a book.

Frustrated at the whole store situation, I flick my finger, sending several paperbacks flying off the shelf with the one Jack grabbed. Books pelted his chest.

I jumped back, acting shocked by the books jumping off the shelf. I couldn’t exactly tell him I did it. “We must have packed them in too tightly.”

I pressed my lips together to hide my smile and helped pick up the fallen books.

“This is quite popular.” I held one out. “Lots of twists and surprise attacks.”

Jack glanced sideways. “Is that right?”

**My thoughts**
Merry Little Wishing Spritz was an absolutely charming holiday read! And yes, the pun is intended. It's been a while since I read a good book with a paranormal twist and a fun witch. This book and I were meant to be, because it came across my path just as I was wishing for one. And it really is darling. It's also relatively short, which is perfect during this chaotic time of year. But you still get all the story that you need.

It's a part of the multi-author Christmas Cookies series, which I am enjoying as a whole.

Jack and Cassie really are perfect for each other, even if they don't want to admit it at first. They probably didn't need a magical boost, but the holidays are supposed to be magical, right? It's actually amusing watching Cassie foible through her own attempts at magically manipulating her world and then trying to sort out her own feelings from the spell she's convinced she is under. There's even a fun little twist that I pretty much saw coming, but still loved when it happened.

I'd actually love to see more out of these characters! They were cute!

Thank you to the author and Goddess Fish for the requested review copy. All thoughts and opinions are my own.
