Reluctantly Charmed by Ellie O'Neill

10:00 pm 0 Comments A+ a-

Kate McDaid is listing her new-year’s resolutions hoping to kick-start her rather stagnant love life and career when she gets some very strange news. To her surprise, she is the sole benefactor of a great great-great-great aunt and self-proclaimed witch also called Kate McDaid, who died over 130 years ago. As if that isn’t strange enough, the will instructs that, in order to receive the inheritance, Kate must publish seven letters, one by one, week by week.

Burning with curiosity, Kate agrees and opens the first letter – and finds that it’s a passionate plea to reconnect with the long-forgotten fairies of Irish folklore. Almost instantaneously, Kate’s life is turned upside down. Her romantic life takes a surprising turn and she is catapulted into the public eye.

As events become stranger and stranger – and she discovers things about herself she’s never known before – Kate must decide whether she can fulfil her great-aunt’s final, devastating request ... and whether she can face the consequences if she doesn’t.

Witty, enchanting and utterly addictive, Reluctantly Charmed is about what happens when life in the fast lane collides with the legacy of family, love and its possibilities … and a little bit of magic. 



Hey! Here's my review.

This debut novel was a delight to read. It's set in modern day Ireland with a magical twist, plenty of humor and a hint of romance. The main character discovers her own potential and is in the position to change the world. There is good character development throughout the book with characters to like and loathe. The ending wraps up the story nicely but leaves a possibility for another book. 

I received this book free from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.
